Have you ever stared up at the night sky, tears in your eyes, and screamed to the gods “Why was I not born a turnip”? Well, someone at DevilishGames did, and they created a rather popular life simulator named Minabo - A walk through life, which you find mobile folk can now download.
During its tenure on Steam and consoles, Minabo found itself quite the niche, racking up universal acclaim and earning a respectful number of award nods. It even won a couple of them, recently earning Best Video Hame at the 2023 Berlanda Award, and now it's ready to take the world of mobile gaming by storm.
Minabo places you in the shoes of, of all things, a turnip that has just recently sprouted from the earth. You would think the life of a vegetable would be quite simple; grow, be washed, wind up in a stew. As it turns out, these humble crops live quite the full life when nobody is looking.
The passage of time in this game is shown from the simple act of walking, forever in motion. As you embark on your eastward journey, you will need to monitor four key attributes; Physical Contact, Intimacy, Belonging, and the rather morbid Life Expectancy. How you decide to live your life will present itself with major changes.
On your journey, you can choose to befriend a plethora of other folk on their way, creating a loving community with many close friends, or you can strike out on your own. Many radish-pets will be available to adopt, which is clearly the correct way to play this game. You can even settle down and raise an army of mini radishs’, just don’t forget the radish-dog.
Minabo - A walk through life is available to purchase from the App Store and Google Play for $3.99.
