Twelve Minutes release date has been revealed thanks to the E3 2021 showcase on Sunday, June 13.

Developed by Luis Antonio and Published by Annapurna Interactive, this interactive murder mystery game was revealed during the Xbox and Bethesda Showcase at E3 2021. After seven years, the game is finally ready to hit the market and let players explore a heartbreaking tale of romance, murder, and a warm evening turned cold.

Here's when players can jump into Twelve Minutes.

Twelve Minutes Release Date

Players will have access to Twelve Minutes on Aug. 19. It will be available on PC via Steam and Xbox.

According to its listing on the Steam store, Twelve Minutes "blends the dream-like tension of THE SHINING with the claustrophobia of REAR WINDOW and the fragmented structure of MEMENTO."

Players are trapped in the same 12-minute cycle, reliving the romantic dinner and subsequent abrupt arrest and beating of a wife and husband, respectively. The game incorporates puzzle elements with players needing to use the knowledge they've gained from the previously-viewed cycles to break the loop. If they fail, they'll be teleported right back to the beginning, "doomed to relive the same terror again and again."

More information about the game can be found on its website.
