About this project
Minoan recaptures the core of classic 2D platformers of the 80s and 90s and propels the ancient civilization of Minoans in Crete during the Bronze Age. Minoan utilizes the most advanced game technology to create a stunning environment and heart-thumping player experience that has been crafted by designers who have great expertise in the field.
Androgeus, son of Minos, had been killed by the Athenians, who were jealous of the victories he had won at the Panathenaic festival. Minos waged war to avenge the death of his son and won. Aegeus must avert the plague caused by his crime by sending young men at the same time as the best of unwed girls as a feast to the Minotaur.
King Minos required that seven Athenian youths and seven maidens, drawn by lots, be sent every seventh or ninth year to be devoured by the Minotaur. When the third sacrifice approached, Theseus volunteered to slay the monster. He promised to his father, Aegeus, that he would put up a white sail on his journey back home if he was successful and would have the crew put up black sails if he was killed.
In Crete, Minos' daughter Ariadne fell madly in love with Theseus and helped him navigate the labyrinth. In most accounts she gave him a ball of thread, allowing him to retrace his path. Theseus killed the Minotaur with the sword of Aegeus and led the other Athenians back out of the labyrinth.
You are Theseus dressed up with noble Minoan clothes (resembling the famous Minoan Prince figure discovered by Sir Arthur Evans in 1903) trying to find your way out from the dreadful labyrinth of the Knossos Palace. You are being attacked by Minotaurs and other awful monsters and you have to use a combination of weapons and spells to overcome the difficulties and avoid being hurt. Your final goal is to kill all different types of Minotaurs and free your captured friends.
The game was developed by a team with great experience in the development of this type of games. Furthermore, the graphics and designs closely resemble the forms and shapes found on ancient wall paintings and major artifacts found at the excavation site of Knossos Palace in Crete, Greece.
A number of ten levels have been constructed so far in order to complete phase 1 of the project. Minoan will be available to all major mobile platforms.
