Discover the latest adventure from Pendulo Studios, creators of the Runaway series!
"Yesterday Origins" will take the immortal heroes, John Yesterday and his other half Pauline, not only across the world, but across history itself. This interwoven narration gives the plot its depth and richness.
It's 1418. In the dead of night, young John is publically humiliated and dragged through the street. He is imprisoned by the Spanish Inquisition under suspicion of witchcraft.
Later, he undergoes an alchemical transformation making him immortal. But the potion used during the ceremony has been tampered with by priest Ginés de Orduña. This means that after each resurrection, John completely forgets who he is.
In the current day, John and Pauline are searching for an artefact that is needed to make the potion, this time correctly. During their investigation, they will have to face dangerous new protagonists who want to steal their secrets...
KEY FEATURES :
A good adventure game with memorable characters, interesting story and great graphic / sound design showing that Pendulo still got the touch. On the minus side, I found the game a bit too easy and the new interface is maybe the culprit speeding the multiple random attempts and giving you huge visual hints. Nonetheless, great game.
Yesterday Origins is the sequel to the surprisingly solid, if unimaginatively titled, game Yesterday. Yesterday Origins continues the story of Yesterday, which is the highlight of both Yesterday and Yesterday Origins. It is impossible to talk about anything regarding the story without spoiling it, but both games are worth playing for the story alone, even if the genre isn't to your liking. As with Yesterday, you wander around the environment, clicking on objects to investigate and collect them, combine objects with other objects, and solve puzzles either using logic or blind luck. Some answers will be obvious, others require hints, and some are so obscure that you will require an online walkthrough. Yesterday Origins is a fantastic game but should not be played as a standalone game; if you have not played Yesterday you are required to play that before this game if you want to stand a chance of understanding what is going on, as well as enjoying the story.
Yesterday Origins ? the classical "old school" quest which isn't offering anything cardinally new, but focused on admirers of a genre. A game will hardly interest those who don't love an advenchure though fascinating history and good (often black) humor can draw attention of judges. It is great that the genre hasn't died finally. Pros: classical quest which will please admirers of a genre; interesting story; logical riddles; quite often jokes in dialogues force to smile. Minus: visually a game seems outdated; management is not always convenient.
