Now Playing: 12 Minutes Trailer | Gamescom 2020

Twelve Minutes is described as a top down point-and-click adventure game in real-time, developed by Luis Antonio and published by Annapurna Interactive. It's inspired by movies like Christopher Nolan's Memento and Alfred Hitchcock's Rear Window.

"What should be a romantic evening with your wife turns into a nightmare when a police detective breaks into your home, accuses your wife of murder and beats you to death," reads the game's Steam page. "Only for you to find yourself immediately returned to the exact moment you opened the front door, stuck in a TWELVE-MINUTE time loop, doomed to relive the same terror again and again. Unless you can find a way to use the knowledge of what’s coming to change the outcome and break the loop."
