A downloadable game

Block, parry, kill, turn into a minotaur, kill more, block less, die from a falling chest, win!

explore 4 different gamemodes with up to 8 players in levels inspired by ancient greek temple layouts

1) minotaur: free for all with the leading player transforming into the minotaur, unable to pickup powerups but having big boulders of death to throw

2) flood: be the first player to spawn the flood, which prevents respawning and gradually shrinks the arena

3) marathon: run from one side of the arena to the other to score points and get new munition for your shotgun, while all other players try to stop you with shields and swords

4) secret team mode:
pst! its a secret

on most maps chests with powerups fall from the sky to aid the players, but beware if you find yourself standing in the impact area

Some historic context: The game is inspired by the Minoan Culture, which was civilization in ancient greece living on several islands like Crete and Knossos. Many Myths and Sagas surrounding this island are known till today, like the tale of the Minotaur. The Minoans ultimately got wiped out by a tsunami that followed a vulcanic eruption on the island of Santorini.
