Do you remember the movie Groundhog Day (Monday all week) from 1993? Bill Murray ends up in a time loop after a snowstorm and has to “survive” the same day over and over again. Every time the man “dies”, he restarts in an eternal squirrel wheel until he learns his lesson.
This is the starting point for the studio Annapurna Interactive in the adventure Twelve Minutes. In this twisted state, the player must tackle a mystery that takes place inside an apartment. Each time the player dies, the game restarts on square one – until the player has gathered enough information to advance the story.
Twelve Minutes is now available for Steam and Xbox Game Pass. Check out the launch trailer for what you can expect from the roasting venture.
