7 Minutes is a game-in-a-week formed from traditional platforming mechanics, stylised and perfectly pitched to tell a story.
The game pitches you as a man - who looks strangely like a small black square with eyes - who has seven minutes left to live. The game taunts you as you progress through its many levels, all the time the clock ticking down.
It's a profound tale, told largely through the platforming elements rather than any fancy cut scenes or dialogue, and well worth the effort just for that.
No, it's not perfect, yes, it's very annoying. But is this sort of stuff exciting? Definitely.
Well, either exciting, or pretentious. Give it a go and let us know what you think.
