About

TWELVE MINUTES is a real-time top-down interactive thriller with an accessible click and drag interface.

What should be a romantic evening with your wife turns into a nightmare when a police detective breaks into your home, accuses your wife of murder and beats you to death...

Only for you to find yourself immediately returned to the exact moment you opened the front door, stuck in a TWELVE-MINUTE time loop, doomed to relive the same terror again and again...

Unless you can find a way to use the knowledge of what’s coming to change the outcome and break the loop.

TWELVE MINUTES blends the dream-like tension of THE SHINING with the claustrophobia of REAR WINDOW and the fragmented structure of MEMENTO.

Twelve Minutes reviews and comments

I'm a sucker for time loop games and movies. It made this one an easy choice and I had a lot of fun with it. The game takes place in a tiny apartment, which means trying everything doesn't take too long.

Date Completed: 2021-09-05
Playtime: 3.5h
Enjoyment: 7/10
Recommendation: It's short. It's fun. If you have Game Pass there's no reason not to!
This is an extremely unusual game.
I don't even know how to describe this piece, but this is definitely an extremely emotional story. I spent more than 3 hours in the game, and I was disappointed with only 2 things, a small number of endings and the illogicality associated with wife's book.
A good game, but halfway through I was really lost and mostly disinterested. A great concept though.
The ending is strange. The game is short 
7/10

Popular Review: "A clever time loop setup devolves into frustrating repetition." - PC Gamer

My Review: I love time loop stories and have been excited for this ever since it was shown at E3 2018, but this was just way below my expectations. I went in open-minded, understanding that this would be a "short" game, that the game would take place within the same three rooms, and that it'd be repetitive each loop. But even then, I just look sit back and look at everything in the game and think "that's it?" Don't get me wrong, I did get one or two good moments of various emotions, but I don't think it did anything "unique" when it comes to the time loop genre, or anything with the story that kept me invested enough to finish it. I really wanted to like this game and was so excited to play it the moment it released, but I'm just left with disappointment, and the desire for something more out of it.
