Or you can even put yourself in the game!
For this momentous occasion, they have also put together a brand-new gameplay video, where they show the state of the game as well as its mechanics and some of the dialogue.
About 3 Minutes to Midnight
3 Minutes to Midnight is a brand-new point-and-click adventure game created by Scarecrow Studio.
The inhabitants of a small New Mexico town are sleeping peacefully when a sudden and inexplicable explosion shatters the quiet night. The entire town awakens to discover their memories have been completely erased.
It’s up to troublemaker Betty Anderson, a sassy high school student, to solve the mystery surrounding everyone’s lost memories and save the town, while also possibly preventing a secret doomsday plot. How hard could that possibly be, right?
The game features a colorful cast of over 50 characters, each with their own intriguing pasts and secret agendas to unravel.

The game offers several exciting features, including, but not limited to, the following:
● Sci-fi! Adventure! Mysterious mysteries! Oh, and plenty of laughs. This is a comedy, after all.

● Two playable characters, both of whom share different views of the world.
● Full English voice acting, and subtitles in English, German, French, Italian, and Spanish. (With more languages yet to come!)
