Game Review: 12 Minutes

By: Andre Evans/Sophomore Writer

12 Minutes is a point and click adventure game developed by Luís António and published by Annapurna Interactive. It was released on August 19th, 2021 for Microsoft Windows, the Xbox One, and Xbox Series S/X. It costs $24.99 to buy the game. The game takes place in a modern American apartment, and just there. The game’s plot revolves around a man who is suddenly stuck in a twelve minute time loop, where he has to solve the mystery of what his wife is hiding.

The game is a dramatic and thrilling adventure as you repeat the same twelve minutes to unravel the mystery of the game. Along the way, a mysterious man who claims he’s a part of the police comes along, throwing more mystery into the story. It’s your task to figure out what the man wants, and what your wife is hiding from you.

The game creates a compelling mystery jam packed with plot twist after plot twist, throwing you for a loop every time you believe you’re close to the truth. It makes you feel like you’re in a loop, which is very fitting for the game. It also allows for creative puzzle solving and various things you can try each loop with what you have access to in the apartment. While it’s not the most action packed game, it creates a suspense and sense of dread I haven’t seen from another game in a long time.

Overall, I believe that this game is worth the price for it. While the overall runtime of the game isn’t that long compared to other games, I believe that it works in the favor of the game. It let’s it be long enough to captivate the audience, and allows for you to complete it in a single sitting. It doesn’t overstay its welcome, and has enough in it to make it a great game to play.
