This report is created with input from accessibility experts and the player community to help people find games that have the accessibility features they require.

Minute of Islands is a running, jumping and exploring game where you play Mo, a skilled tinkerer living in the dilapidated poisoned ruins of an ancient race of giants. You scavenge parts from their strange machines to get them running and clean the air. It looks like Tin Tin, but takes that young-adult narrative in more of a survival direction, even touching on themes from games like The Last of Us.
