A cute and romantic coming-of-age story that describes a sensitive being who explores his role regarding companionship, relationship, family and children.

A 3D story-driven point and click puzzle - adventure game taking place in the elegant minimalistic universe of the Minims. With its cartoon-like unusual artwork, its eccentric story, and its relaxing tempo, it introduces the player to explore the minimalist sceneries, to collect important items, and to solve varied, easy & difficult riddles to unfold the storyline.

The story is unravelled in the quirky and serene universe of the Minims, a world in-between a real world and an imaginary world, that exists inside their minds. The Minims species are charming cartoon-like creatures who believe that they are the last of their genre. The Minims are skilful musicians, well-educated, eclectic, sophisticated, and invention enthusiasts. They have created on their own their settlement from scratch and they have found new ways of alternative and ecologically way of living.

On yet another beautiful day, on the top of the rock, Mii is doing some chores, when it dawns on him that Mo appears to be missing. A personal journey is beginning. Tracing her steps he embarks on an emotional journey which becomes a self-seeking enigmatic exploration regarding life choices and personal values.

Symbolism from the ancient Greek classic culture and mythology and discreet references to scenes from favourite films and classic games have their own place in the game.


"The graphics immediately convey a sense of quality and – perhaps most important of all for a game about undertaking an epic journey – scale" - 8/10 -

"An imaginative, clever and rather touching game with well-designed puzzles, wonderful 3D visuals and a healthy portion of cuteness." -

"This is a very beautiful and unique tap adventure. The 3D graphics here are amazing, especially for an iPhone game." - Join Indies

Wait a Minum

Just reloading my copy to have another go at it. First let me second what was said in an earlier review:NOT ALL gamers are testosterone fueled teenage boys. Some of us are sweet old grannies WITH MONEY TO SPEND and would spend on more games like this. Non-threatening and humorous with puzzles that give our brains a workout along with the entertainment. There are only a handful out there. Please make more.

Dear player, thank you for the feedback. You tap on the top three stalagmites and appear 3 bubbles.
When you tap a bubble, the bubble goes up and to the centre. You have to tap quickly all three bubbles a few times. They join together and become one big bubble that transfers the fish into the sea.
Hope to enjoy this time and reconsider your rating.

SLOW, Do not waste your money

If you have endless time to wait for dialogue bubbles to move onto the next one or if you are an extremely and I mean an extremely slow reader, then this is the game for you. However if you are like most people who enjoy actually playing a game then I recommend something that moves the dialogue along much more quickly. It looks like the game could be fun and interesting however I cannot waste a 1 minute pause to read a 1-5 word dialogue bubble. My guess is this was done to make the game seem longer. Sorry that’s all I have chucked it in the waste bin didn’t have time to waste.

Thank you for your comment. We have just updated the game (3.4 version) and includes a feature that you could fast forward the cinematics and the dialogues. So, you could play the same game for a shorter duration. This game is relaxing, smooth and emotional - that was our goal! Hope you enjoy the game this time.
