Annapurna Interactive, known for titles such as What Remains of Edith Finch and Sayonara Wild Hearts, have revealed their latest undertaking called Twelve Minutes featuring a star-studded cast of Willem Dafoe, Daisy Ridley, and James McAvoy.
You can view the trailer below, but it isn’t much to go by as it shows a handful of scenes from a top down perspective of an apartment where a murder is about to take place.
The description of the game from its Steam page reads as follows:
TWELVE MINUTES is a real-time top-down interactive thriller with an accessible click and drag interface.
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…
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.
TWELVE MINUTES blends the dream-like tension of THE SHINING with the claustrophobia of REAR WINDOW and the fragmented structure of MEMENTO.
Featuring James McAvoy, Daisy Ridley, and Willem Dafoe.

Twelve Minutes is scheduled to release later this year for the Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC.
