Created at United States in 1997 and arrived in France in 2014, netflix has since made a name for itself in the global streaming market. A pioneer in the sector, the American firm now sees its domination being tickled by Disney+ and Prime Video, to name a few, which are scratching its market share a little more every day. However, Netflix had taken the lead by deciding to invest since 2021 in the production of video games thanks to the takeovers of several studios specializing in the field. By having its own production studio since last year, the streaming site is stepping up its development in this sector and offers no less than 40 games accessible to its subscribers, without advertising, additional costs or in-app purchases. Among them is the very intriguing Twelve Minutes.
Released Summer 2021 on PS4, Xbox One and PC, Twelve Minutes is officially available since December 13 but it seems that its timid launch did not satisfy netflix who took advantage of this beginning of the year to promote the title on Twitter with different photos while quickly pitching Annapurna Interactive’s game: “The goal: to guide a man in his apartment, stuck in a fatal time loop, which repeats itself every 12 minutes. It is up to you to prevent his death.”
In order to have access to this indie game which will certainly warm up your gray matter, you have to “scroll on the homepage of your mobile Netflix app (iOS / Android), until you find the ‘Games’ category.” The games are also downloadable on Android smartphones and tablets, on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
