'Twelve Minutes' (ALL) Delayed Until 2021, As Well As 'The Artful Escape' And 'Last Stop'

Twelve Minutes is an interactive narrative that blends the dream-like tension of The Shining with the claustrophobia of Read Window and the fragmented structure of Memento.

Twelve Minutes is an interactive thriller about a man trapped in a time loop, a fresh take on the thriller genre, where players are asked to take part in a compelling story centered around a shocking crime which they must help solve. The game subverts the ideas of what play should feel like and will present players with a truly unique experience. 

In this interactive thriller, a man’s romantic evening with his wife is interrupted by a violent home invasion. The man tries to stop the attacker and gets knocked out only to immediately find himself back to the start of the evening, stuck in a time loop of 12 minutes and doomed to relive the same terror again and again.

Players must find a way to use the knowledge of what’s coming to change the outcome and break the loop.

With 2020 coming to a close, Annapurna Interactive confirmed that Twelve Minutes, The Artful Escape and Last Stop have all been delayed until 2021.

"some news: you may have seen a very broad 2020 release window for The Artful Escape, 12 Minutes, and Last Stop in trailers or on store pages in the past so it's almost December and the end of the year we're looking at 2021 now as they all get closer to getting ready! :)"

The Twelve Minutes ensemble will include Golden Globe nominee James McAvoy (“It Chapter 2” “Split,” “X Men Franchise”) , Daisy Ridley (“Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker,” “Star Wars: Episode VIII The Last Jedi,” “Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens,” “Murder on the Orient Express”) and four-time Academy Award nominee Willem Dafoe (“The Lighthouse”, “At Eternity’s Gate,” “The Florida Project”).

The characters are nameless throughout the experience; “the man” is voiced by James McAvoy, “the woman” is voiced by Daisy Ridley, and “the intruder” is voiced by Willem Dafoe. 

Twelve Minutes will be releasing for PC, Xbox Series X and Xbox One in 2021.
