Today, during /twitchgaming Showcase: [email protected], we announced that Twelve Minutes, our interactive thriller about a man trapped in a time loop, is coming to Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Windows 10 very soon.
In Twelve Minutes, you play as a man coming home for what should be a romantic evening with your wife. The night twists into a nightmare when a brutish policeman breaks into your home, accuses your wife of murder, and beats you to death… only for you to wake up, suddenly returned to the moment you opened the front door. Your wife is blissfully unaware of what is about to happen, but you… you remember everything.
Every time twelve minutes elapses or the man dies, the loop restarts and pops the man right back to the start of the evening. The other characters revert to the state they were in when we met them, but every experience the protagonist endures affects him permanently. As your knowledge accumulates, a twisted and surprising story unfolds, tearing the facade off the idyllic couple’s lives.
Twelve Minutes features accessible, point-and-click controls that allow for an immersive experience with little to no hand holding. It’s just you, the man you control, and the choices you make. And it all happens in real time.
The experience is enhanced by an all-star cast. Willem Dafoe portrays the intruder, Daisy Ridley the woman, and James McAvoy the man who the player propels through the narrative. Stay tuned to Xbox Wire, twelveminutesgame.com, and our Twitter to be the first to learn more.
