The good old days of point-and-click adventures are mostly behind us. In the 90’s, companies like LucasArts thrived on this genre and created timeless classics. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t more titles out there today. Three Minutes to Eight is a unique pixelated take on a time-bending story with point-and-click mechanics.
In Three Minutes to Eight, “you’re destined to meet your demise at precisely 7:57 PM, and it’s up to you to find a way to cheat death while unravelling the mysteries of the story.”
Set in the future, with some real Blade Runner and steampunk vibes, the game will have randomly generated story branches and many chances for replayability and exploration.
And you won’t be running into the same old dialogue and NPCs while you do this. Each run has its own randomly generated procedures and instances to tackle. The devs have also created numerous endings and “hidden mysteries in each playthrough.”
Three Minutes to Eight is available now on Steam and GOG. Developer Chaosmonger Studio says a console and mobile version is on the way in the coming weeks as well.
