You wake at the start of the same night when you opened the front door. This Groundhog Day time-loop offers you a chance to escape the terror you remember. You need to use the knowledge of what happened in previous loops to change the outcome.
Along with the unusual time-loop mechanic, Twelve Minutes has a dream-like reality that draws on films like The Shining and claustrophobia of Rear Window and the fragmented structure of Momento. Games often want to draw on films to substantiate their importance and weight. Here though, there is storytelling and acting talent to match with James McAvoy, Daisy Ridley, and Willem Dafoe taking on voice actor roles.
Although not yet rated this is likely to be PEGI 18+ and ESRB MATURE 17+. The developers describe the content as containing "violence, gore, blood and sexual themes". The theme of the game and the intended grown up audience means that this is not likely to be rated as suitable for those younger than 18.
