How to get the true ending in twelve Minutes

You will be able to play normally, but there are specific things you need to do in certain loops to reach the true ending, check below:

True End of Twelve Minutes – First Loop

Once you enter the apartment, sit on the couch and wait for your wife to come to you and sit beside you. After sitting down, she will pull out a red book that you can interact with. Interact twice with the book to get it to quote a passage from it. This is important for later.


Once that’s done, agree to have dessert with your wife. Notice how the light switch in the bedroom shocks her when she turns on the bedroom light. Help prepare the dinner table, have fun with the evening, react positively to the news your wife presents to you until the policeman arrives at the door. Wait for him to come in and arrest you and your wife while he accuses your wife of your father’s murder. Later, the cop will knock him out, which will trigger the next time loop.

True End of Twelve Minutes – Second Loop

During this time loop, go to the bathroom and get the sleeping pills from the medicine cabinet. Without your wife noticing, put the pills into a mug, pour water into it. Once this is done, give the mug to your wife. A few moments after drinking from the mug, the wife begins to get sleepy. She will then go to the bedroom and pass out on the bed. Follow her into the room, turn the light on once and turn it off again.

After that, go back to the living room, keeping the bedroom door open. Enter the closet, close the door and wait for the officer to arrive.


When the officer knocks on the door, stay inside the closet and wait for him to enter alone. He will immediately go into the bedroom after noticing that his wife has passed out in bed. Once inside, he’ll turn on the light switch, which will shock you and knock you unconscious.

Quickly exit the closet, go to the bedroom and interact with the unconscious policeman’s body. Remove handcuffs, gun and phone. Handcuff him and wait for him to wake up.

Upon waking up, interact with the police officer, but do not choose the option that claims your innocence. When he starts to get up, shoot him in the leg. After that, you can start interrogating him and he will tell you the truth. Ask him about the watch, the wife’s relationship with her father, the murder charges, and any instructions that follow.

After he reveals everything to you, pick up his phone and call “Little Bee”, the cop’s daughter. This will make you remember her number for the next loop. Afterwards, go back to the living room and go to the fridge.

Take the polaroid from the top drawer. This will make your character realize that your wife is really innocent. You can then wait for time to run out or leave the apartment to start the next Loop.

True End of Twelve Minutes – Third Loop

In this loop, proceed directly to the closet and close the door behind you. Search the clothing section and take out your cell phone. Using this phone, call the officer’s daughter. Tell her her father is coming to arrest his wife and then tell her that his wife is innocent. The daughter will then agree to call the father. This step is an essential part of making this loop count.


After that, go back to the living room and take the polaroid out of the fridge. Take this polaroid and give it to your wife. This will reveal the whole situation to your wife, but she will still need proof that you really are lost and that a man is coming to get you.

To get your wife to believe you, go into the bedroom, take the gift out of the closet, and give it to her. She will then believe you and finally tell the story of your past and the truth about your father. Tell her about the cop. Granted you have enough time, ask her as many questions as you can about her past.

When the officer arrives at his floor, he will receive a call from his daughter telling him to listen. When he finally knocks on the door, open the door for him and have the scene between him and his wife. He will finally believe his wife is innocent, and they will come to the conclusion that her brother was responsible for their father’s death. He will then leave, promising to track down his brother. After you are alone, you and your wife will talk optimistically about the future. However, it is not over yet. The next loop will start immediately afterwards.


True End of Twelve Minutes – Fourth Loop

Do the same things as in the previous loop, until the officer arrives. Wait for them to talk about the nanny. This information is vital in the future. Proceed to the next loop.

True End of Twelve Minutes – Fifth Loop

The husband will begin this cycle by commenting on the nanny. The continuation of this loop is still similar to the previous one. However, this time, after telling everything to the wife and while waiting for the policeman to arrive, go to the bedroom, take the gift out of the closet and take the coveralls out of the box. So wait for the police to arrive.

Make the scene play out as in the previous loop. However, as soon as the officer says the nanny’s name, give him the overalls. In just a few moments, the next loop will begin. Only this time, it’s in the past.

True End of Twelve Minutes – Sixth Loop

This loop is set at a different time and in a different place. Watch the scene unfold and choose the option you like. What you choose here doesn’t matter, any choice will only take you back to today.

True End of Twelve Minutes – Seventh Loop

This specific loop is programmed. Just watch the scene unfold and wait for the next loop to happen.

True End of Twelve Minutes – Oitavo Loop

In this loop, go straight to the bathroom and remove the clock from the ventilation grill under the medicine cabinet. Use the house key to open the vent.

Search the darkness for an “object” to get the pocket watch. Watch the clock as it reverses time. Once the small hand reaches 12 in two minutes, you will be taken back to the 6th loop library.

True End of Twelve Minutes – End Loop

Back in the library, you can find the same red book the wife is reading on the shelf behind her husband. Click on the book, opening a new dialogue. Just wait for this scene to end. You will have the option to change your mind. Do not click on this option. Wait until the dialogue ends and credits will start to roll. And with that, you’ve unlocked the achievement of Blissful Ignorance and the “true” end of the game.

It takes exactly nine loops to get to the “true” end of the game. After the credits run out, you will be taken back to the main menu once more. If you decide to repeat the game, the husband will not remember previous events.
