A new trailer for 12 Minutes, the interactive thriller about a man caught in a time loop, aired today at Gamescom. The trailer revealed the various voice actors who will be starring in this game.
Originally revealed at last year's E3, 12 Minutes is an adventure game about a man stuck in a twelve-minute time loop. During what's supposed to be a romantic dinner, a police officer bursts into the man's home, accuses his wife of murder, and beats the protagonist to death. However, he then finds himself back to when he arrived home. By using the knowledge of what's coming, players have to help this man and his wife survive the night and break out of the time loop. The game has been under development in various forms by indie designer Luis Antonio for the past seven years.
The newest trailer from Annapurna Interactive doesn't offer much new on story or gameplay details, but it does reveal that there's an all-star cast of voice actors in the game. The major voice actors will be James McAvoy (Split, X-Men: Days of Future Past) as the protagonist, Daisy Ridley (Star Wars Episode IX) voicing the wife, and Willem Dafoe (Aquaman, Spider-Man (2002)) as the intruder. In a press release, Antonio said:
"I’m thrilled to have this incredibly talented cast bring the nuanced and complex characters of Twelve Minutes to life. This experience blends the mediums of film and games, and these extraordinary actors are perfect for the challenge of delivering a new twist on the thriller genre."
12 Minutes will release sometime this year for Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC via Steam. There's no word on if it'll be a launch title for the Xbox Series X.
