What is 12 Minutes?

12 Minutes is a seemingly simple adventure game with thriller elements. In the game, we witness a police officer barging into our room. We're accused of murdering our own wife. After a short struggle, we die. That's it. Or so would the protagonist like to, because now begins a sort of Groundhog Day.

What can happen in 12 Minutes?

So, we have twelve minutes to solve the case, and not only understand what's going on, but also save our wife and ourself. We're stuck in a time loop and only have so much time before the seemingly inevitable happens. We were given a small room filled with objects with which we can interact. You need to find the right things that will bring you closer to solving the problem. This, combined with original camera work and an unusual atmosphere of fun, makes 12 Minutes worth your while.

Why should you check out Aliens: Fireteam Elite?

During the game, we will have to manage a soldier, who will be accompanied by two allies. Other players can play this role, because Aliens: Fireteam Elite focuses on cooperative play.

They will be useful to us in the fight against more than 20 types of opponents, 11 of which are the aliens.
