A cutesy monochromatic deliberately-retro action-adventure game where a cursed sword causes the player character to die over and over again, forcing them to progress in 60-second intervals.

Minit is a deliberately-retro 2D top-down action-adventure game developed by a four-man indie team (Jan Willem Nijman of Vlambeer, Kitty Calis, musician Jukio Kallio, and artist Dominik Johann) and published digitally by Devolver Digital for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, Mac, and Linux on April 3, 2018. It was later released on the Nintendo Switch on August 9, 2018.

Loosely based on Adventure Minute (an Adventure Time fangame developed by Nijman and Calis for the Adventure Time Game Jam on September 2012) and developed in GameMaker Studio, Minit features a premise where the player character automatically dies after one minute of gameplay, forcing them to restart back to their checkpoint with any progress they have made. The game also features a distinct monochromatic pixel art style.
