But when you wake up from the assault you are right back at your front door forced to relive these 12 minutes until you figure out what’s going on. Welcome back fellow gamers! This is 12 minutes and it’s an interesting piece of work. 


Let’s start with the easy part. 12 minutes features an allstar cast of amazing voice actors/actresses. Its an intimate situation but definitely beautiful.

This has to be the worst Groundhogs Day EVAR. You literally have 12 minutes, or less, to figure out the next piece of this puzzle before the loop restarts. You have to try every possible scenario. You may even find yourself committing an unforgivable sin. Every time the loop restarts, hopefully, you’ve gained some new piece of information that will unlock more dialogue and get you closer to ending the loop. You won’t find the answer here or in the video but you definitely have some options to explore. Dont expect any hints from the game and try EVERYTHING. There are multiple endings to achieve and if you can persevere You’ll be entertained.
