Twelve Minutes doesnt seem all that unique on paper. When you boil it all down, its a fairly traditional point-and-click adventure game that takes place in one setting. But where things get interesting is that its also a time-loop mystery, so even though you have all of your puzzle objects at your disposal from the jump, theyll need to be combined in intentionally different ways over the course of dozens and dozens of loop resets during the full six- to eight-hour story in order to unlock new information. Its a fresh twist on a genre Ive loved since the original Monkey Island days, and the story is good enough to make me immediately want to talk to someone else whos also finished it.
