Made this guide because I wanted the cleanest walkthroughs to get all achievements in Twelve Minutes. I believe this is one of the most optimal way of doing the game for 100% achievements. I also got lost so many times just trying to do the achievements without a guide, so here it is!
 
 

INTRO

Hey! This is my first ever guide! Made it because I was so confused and flustered, and decided to share it. I’m sure there are other ways to accomplish this but this walkthrough was pretty smooth for me to get 100%. Hope this helps!
 
 
TWELVE MINUTES: The game is all about looping scenes over and over. If you miss 1 step, you might get lost in what you did wrong, aka not get the right dialog to progress.
 
 
IMPORTANT!!!!
 

  • For this guide, I will be using Polygon’s game walkthrough – [polygon.com]  and refer to each section in the article as “LOOP #”. Make sure to have both my guide and that walkthrough open while playing the game to get all achievements.

(P.S. I also used True Achievements – [trueachievements.com]  for the achievements instructions and modified them a bit for clarity).
 
 
 

FIRST RUN

START A NEW RUN

 

  • 11. LISTEN: Go into the apartment and then just don’t touch the mouse/controller until time runs out. Don’t even move in the apt.

→ LISTEN COMPLETE
 
 
 

SECOND RUN

This is the longest run because you pretty much have to play the whole game once. You shouldn’t have to delete your progress (unless you mess up big time).
 
 

NEW LOOP STARTS

 
Right at the beginning…
 
 

  • 10. FLUIDITY: Get the cup go to the sink fill it with water go to the room on the left and click on the plant so just drag the cup to the plant.

    – 7.1. Inspect the bedroom painting: Man and woman on a balcony, surrounded by white flowers
  • 8. SEASONS 1/4:This achievement needs you to look at the painting above the couch in the living room 4 times in total.
     
     
     
    – 8.1. Inspect the season painting: It shows two trees with green leaves.
  • 9. OUROBOROS 1/3: This is unlocked by looking at the painting of the egg on the wall on the kitchen side 3 separate times.
     
     
     
    – 9.1. Inspect the egg painting: In the beginning it is just an egg.

    Tell your wife you are ready for dessert, sit down at the table with her and eat dessert until she gives you the gift, open it and look at the baby clothes, tell her what you think about it “it is gonna be wonderful”, she will ask you to dance, agree, and just go along with her until the day ends.

    – Here, you must check the clock at 12:00 exactly. But this is quite tricky because the father will stop the loop before that. So you must:
     
     
     
    – Let him talk until 11:59. He’ll say something like “What do you choose ?”
     
     
     
    – Now, click on the red book but select “I change my mind” just after (if not you’ll miss this achievement and lose your save !)
     
     
     
    – Click on the clock and let him talk until 12:00.

NEW LOOP STARTS

 

  • 1. CONTINUE: This will end the game and reset everything to the very beginning, so it is recommended to save this one for last. After finishing Mindfulness, put back the clock at 11:58.
     
     
     
    – You will need to have talked to the wife about her book until she reads a quote from it. (This should already be done with Mindfulness). Upon reaching the father, click on the book in the bottom of the screen and then proceed to not select anything else. Eventually the scene will end and the achievement will pop.

→ CONTINUE COMPLETE
