So, the developer that brought us that co-op puzzler Tick Tock: A Tale for Two (Steam Deck playable)? They’re releasing details about a fresh game coming next year on Linux.
They’re calling it Miniatures, and from what I’ve seen, it’s gonna be. So imagine you stumble upon this ancient-looking wooden box. Inside, you’ve got a toy lizard, a picture of a moth, some random screwdriver, and a seashell. Sounds random? Well, each of these things will also take you on its own wild journey. This playable short-story collection takes place through the eyes of a child.

Let’s dive deeper:
- Familiar: Enter a living space where you’ll assist a family in putting together a flat pack cabinet. Miniatures is not just about assembly; it’s also about piecing together moments.
- The Paludarium: Ever imagined what it’s like when nature reclaims its space? This story places you in the shoes of a young boy, navigating a household that’s slowly being overtaken by nature.
- The Last Sand Castles: Here, the shores become your playground. So you can transform a mere sandcastle into a sprawling mini-metropolis. Driven by the sheer power of imagination.
- Night Hunt: Dive into a visually stunning seascape as you accompany Alma in her quest to find her lost mother.
They’ve designed Miniatures so you can dip in and out of these adventures. Or if you’re feeling good about it, play them all. They’re short, they’re sweet, and each one looks and feels different. Since it’s like the unique vibe you get from graphic novels. Maybe some of those modern adventures you like. That’s the essence they’re capturing in the game.
And art, it’s hand-drawn, the kind you’d see in those classic storybooks. So, it’s not just about playing Miniatures, it’s also about getting lost in the visuals.
