Just darkness. And then there was light…
But not enough for Michael to find out who he is and what happened to the world out there. The Great Wave, the Dissolved… are just hollow words in his looted mind. Help Michael face a rotten reality, a universe that’s fading away. Face a merciless world that gets sick and vanishes. Face no past, no present, no future. Face the impending moment of “dead synchronicity”. And you’d better hurry. Otherwise…what will you do when Time dissolves itself?
A terrible pandemic is turning all of humanity into the Dissolved – the sick whose deliria provide them with supernatural cognitive powers... but also steer them towards a gruesome death.
The root of this illness seems to be the Great Wave, an inexplicable chain of natural disasters that destroyed all energy sources and communications and plunged the world into a chaos ruthlessly controlled by both the authorities and the army alike.
You will have to help Michael, a man with no past, recovering his identity and decode the events that brought the world to the edge of collapse. Because, if Michael doesn’t hurry, he won’t be able to avoid the impending moment of dead synchronicity... when Time dissolves itself.
Dead Synchronicity: Tomorrow comes Today is a 2D point and click adventure featuring a script with dystopian overtones. The game pays homage to classic adventures (The Secret of Monkey Island, Broken Sword, Day of the Tentacle...) but revolves around a more mature theme, along the lines of games such as “I have no mouth and I must scream” or “Sanitarium”.
Classic adventure gameplay combined with mature theme
2D graphics featuring a unique, expressionist style
Space-time distortions, a dystopian atmosphere... and a dark, bloodstained plot
Featuring soundtrack from indie rock band Kovalski (available as DLC)
"Guybrush meets Mad Max meets 12 Monkeys"

Dead Synchronicity is all about the setting - you play as a man who has lost his memory and must survive in the post-apocalyptic world he wakes up in. Below the cartoonish art style lies a very mature story dealing with violence, virus infections, concentration camps, and so on. It's a shame that the storyline will only come to an end in the sequel though (the game ends with a cliffhanger). Technically the game is far from perfect - the animations are especially rough and amateurish, but this doesn't hinder the fun.
A Kickstarted point and click adventure game set in a post apocalyptic world. You play as a blankhead (person with amnesia) who must learn about his past by looking into a disease that causes people to see visions before dying in a rather gruesome way. Excellent artwork that gives the game dark and hopeless atmosphere and a good soundtrack. Most voice acting in the game is well done, the main character's voice is excellent, though tone changes can be very sudden between lines. The actor for the games more threatening figure The Hunter was unfortunately very poorly cast and some of the dialogue from him really doesn't fit well. Much of the dialogue and characters are well written. Puzzles are mostly done well and make sense, with a few odd choices, like needing to pry open a car door even though it has no windows and refusing to take an oil light with you when you need to access dark areas. You can quickly traverse areas and the game starts you in areas that skips forcing you to rewatch animations making it easy to get around and making it less tedious when you attempt to figure out a puzzle solution. There are moments where characters you should be able to talk to don't come back, people may ask you to tell another character something or you might have discovered something that a character would want to know about but the game never allows you to talk to those characters again. The game ends abruptly just as you discover an important, though obvious, fact about yourself and an important fact about the world. I hope that there is a sequel both to continue the story and because you discover an interesting mechanic that could be used for puzzles near the end of the game that you would likely see more of in future installments. Worth playing.
