12 Minutes is a thriller adventure game developed by Luis Antonio, who was also responsible for the visuals of The Witness.


In 12 Minutes we play as a man whose peaceful evening turns into a nightmare. A policeman comes to his apartment, accusing the hero's wife of murder. It comes to a struggle and eventually, our character is killed.

Instead of gaining an eternal rest, the man wakes up twelve minutes earlier. He quickly discovers that he is trapped in a time loop. He needs to find a way to discover what's really going on and come up with a way to keep himself and his wife alive.


12 Minutes is a thriller adventure game in which the action is limited to one apartment. The player must play out the looped fragments, trying to find a sequence of actions and decisions that will keep him alive and achieve other goals.

The apartment is small, but densely filled with usable facilities. Combined with the rich possibilities for interaction with characters, this gives us plenty of freedom to try out sequences to find the right one.

Game modes

12 Minutes offers single-player mode only. The devs did not prepare any multiplayer games.

Technical aspects

The game features simple, but nice visuals. The action is watched from a camera placed high above the head of the character, and the whole thing has been designed to enhance the claustrophobic atmosphere of the story.
