During this year’s E3 I went hands-on with a point-and-click adventure called 3 Minutes to Midnight, and I came away quite impressed. We later named it our Best Indie Game of E3 2018, and we’ve been looking forward to seeing more of it since. That wish was granted today, as developer Scarecrow Studio released a new trailer that highlights some of the crazy characters, diverse environments, and mysterious happenings in a once-quiet New Mexico town.

3 Minutes to Midnight is set late in the 1940s. World War II is fading in the rearview mirror, but somewhere in New Mexico, a secret plot to extinguish humanity has been set in motion. Our hero, Betty Anderson, wakes up to a deafening sound in the middle of the night and feels her house shake to the core, and she soon finds that the whole town (herself included) is suffering from amnesia. It’s up to her to find out what’s going on!

You can look forward to 3 Minutes to Midnight on Steam in 2019, and the development team is working hard to bring it to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch as well.
