It's similar to a 6 string, as the strings are run in pairs. Instead of
pressing down on 1 string at a time, eaqch fongertip hits 2 strings.
It's definitely harder, but you play it the same way.

Fender made a 12 that looks like a strat with a weird headstock. Fender USA
doesn't make it anymore, though you can order one from the custom shop, and
Fender Japan still makes a version.
Fender also made a Coronado 12. The Coronado was Fender's attempt at a
Gibson 335, sort of.
Squier also had a Venus line of guitars which Courtney Love had input on.
There was a Venus 12, which is what I have.
