Human and giants living together seem only viable in the tales of Gulliver's Travels. However, the developer Studio Fizbin has made it possible in video games with their new title - Minute of Islands!
The developer Mixtvision has announced that the game is coming out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC through Steam. Let's watch this trailer of the game first, and then dive in our overview below:
The story of Minute of Islands
The archipelago that you're living in used to be a beautiful one. Long ago, people and giants have been living together happily on this island. In order to protect the islands, the giants have used their advanced knowledge to build many machines.

About its gameplay
The first things to mention about its gameplay is its hand-drawn visuals that resemble comic books. Playing through Minute of Islands is like reading the whole story with colorful artwork and a deep story. However, you do not just passively reading it, but also taking part in the whole journey as well.
Basically, the game consists of many hidden places with many details waiting for you to explore. Minute of Islands mainly focuses on puzzle-solving and platforming. There's little information on this issue, but we know that it will stick to interacting with the environment with your wand-like Omni Switch.
Deep story, fascinating gameplay, and atmospheric soundtrack - that's enough to make Minute of Islands standing out! The only thing that this game is lacking is the specific release date. The publisher only announced that it's coming out at some times in Spring 2020, but no exact date is mentioned.
