Minit is retro puzzle game where you complete small tasks in within a 60 second time frame. You must dodge or fight foes, cut through the undergrowth, explore your world and find keys and swords. You start from the same place for each of your 60 second goes, but keep anything you've found on previous runs. You must learn the world and use your time wisely.

Minit embraces the retro gameboy style of the 80s, with simplistic black and white graphics and electronic arcade music but holds within it a complex labyrinth of possibilities. It was created by just four people and in it holds the charm of simple game mechanics and an addictive and tense gameplay as you try to beat the clock.
