Twelve Minutes looks to be born in Christopher Nolan’s wheelhouse. This indie title developed by Luis Antonio blew our minds and immediately pulled us in to it loopy narrative.
Annapurna Interactive (who can seriously do no wrong at the moment) are set to publish this innovative psychological murder mystery with a release date set for 2020 on PC and Xbox One.
In Twelve Minutes, players take on the role of a husband, dropped into what should be a romantic evening with his wife. The night turns into a nightmare when a police detective breaks into their home, accuses the wife of murder and beats the man to death. Then, players find themselves immediately returned to the exact moment the man opens his front door, stuck in a twelve-minute time loop and doomed to relive the same terror again and again. Players must find a way to use the knowledge of what’s coming to change the outcome and break the loop.
Twelve Minutes looks like more of the same greatness out of the Annapurna Interactive camp. What is more interesting is how the well-suited and bald antagonist looks a heck of a lot like Agent 47 from the Hitman franchise. I know, I know. It isn’t him but a gamer can dream.
With or without 47, this game looks incredibly compelling as heck.
