Three Minutes to Eight is an upcoming side-scrolling adventure with multiple endings, coming Q4 this year
Assemble Entertainment has officially announced an upcoming side-scroller titled Three Minutes to Eight, letting players explore a mind-bending adventure on PC, the Nintendo Switch, consoles, and on mobile. Launching later this year, the cryptic title offers up the question, "If you knew when you were going to die, would you try to stop it?"
In Three Minutes To Eight, players can look forward to a brainteasing pixel-art journey where the protagonist is set to die at exactly 07:57 PM. To keep this from happening, it's up to the player to find a way to cheat death, all while encountering hidden secrets and unlikely twists along the way. There are also multiple endings to unlock, with procedurally generated elements and randomised events to discover.
As the game is an always-evolving experience, players can expect to replay the title a number of times to get to the bottom of it all. This offers a story-driven experience that will likely stay with the player even after the credits roll.
