Minotaur is a point and click novel set in a world full of tech and fantasy elements called The Universe of Seven or U7 for short. The creation tells a dark and mysterious story about a group of people that are unable to leave the place they are staying at. The recently arrived project has an hour-long demo which can introduce you to Minotaur a bit more.
The creators of the game have stated that Minotaur takes influence from classics such as Zero Escape, the Danganronpa series, and more. The game is claimed to be story-driven, containing 9 characters of which 5 are playable. Each one of these characters has a special ability that helps enhance gameplay. There are 4 endings and it is voiced fully in English. There are 150 backgrounds and all of them are animated. Most of them also offer some kind of interaction between you and the background.

Most often, control panels and boss battles offer you special cursors.
That should be it about the game’s features and mechanics. Let’s talk more about the game’s plot. Once the characters realize that they are clearly stuck in their home and can’t leave it, the tension starts to rise. They notice many elements indicating that this situation is caused by someone or something. Finding out what or who is behind this, becomes their goal.
