After years of previews, indie game Twelve Minutes finally releases later this week with a star-studded cast including Daisy Ridley and Willem Dafoe.

Twelve Minutes was first previewed by Kotaku all the way back in 2015. Then in 2019, we saw it again. Now after all that, it’s releasing. I’m excited to actually play this game that I’ve been reading about on and off for the better part of the decade. Will it live up to the wait and the hype? No idea. But the idea of a 12-minute time loop that you can tinker with over and over is a neat idea regardless, so I’m down to finally play it later this week.
