Twelve Minutes was released today, and some people may be stuck on some puzzles. So we’ve comprised spoiler-free tips and tricks guide to help you better get in the headspace to solve some of the game’s puzzles.

Spoiler-Free Twelve Minutes Tips & Tricks

Grab everything

First up, walk around the space and pick up everything you can. When you do, click on the item in your inventory to get some extra dialogue, this could help further point you in the right direction. At the same time, don’t be afraid to drag items from your inventory to people and places around the apartment. You never know when a weird combination could unlock a plot thread that could be used later.

Pay Attention to the small details.

Oftentimes characters will say something that is actually a hint for a puzzle. Pay attention to every detail large and small. Maybe it’s a broken object in the apartment, or perhaps it’s a simple line of dialogue that can point you in the right direction. 

Exhaust all of your dialogue options

Something that is critical to learning everything you can in Twelve Minutes is talking to the characters and exhausting every dialogue option you can. Sometimes they will repeat themselves, but remember to pay attention to the small details. 

Don’t be afraid to experiment

Seriously, it’s a time loop, and manipulating things is what you’re there to do. Everything you do can be undone in the next loop so don’t be afraid to get weird. It might seem weird or like you’re making the wrong decisions, but most of the time, it will help you gain more information.

You can skip time

If you hide in the closet or sleep on the bed you can use it to skip time in the loop. It’s an easy way to pass time if you’re waiting for something to happen. There are other ways to force the passage of time, but those come later in the game.

You can always reset the loop at any point.

At any point in the loop, if things go awry, you can walk out the front door of the apartment to reset the loop.

Hopefully, these small tips help get you where you need to be in Twelve Minutes. For more tips, tricks, and guides be sure to check out Prima Games and our Facebook and Twitter pages.
