Above: a video sample of gameplay.
Minotaur relies heavily on players building a language in order to navigate a labyrinth.
Each player looks at a separate screen; one (the “body”) controls the minotaur, and the other (“the mind”) sees certain obstacles in the environment.
The mind and the body cannot communicate directly, so the mind has to use
controller vibrations, sounds, and drawn pictographs in order to communicate with the body.
Over the course of multiple levels, players switch roles in order to build a cohesive language and escape the labyrinth.
