During Gamescom, publisher Microïds and developer Pendulo Studios revealed a brand new trailer for their game Yesterday Origins. “We are very excited about releasing the first trailer of Yesterday Origins, our most ambitious game to date. It showcases some of the game’s graphic improvements and reveals more and more about John and Pauline’s quest, while keeping the game’s plot and its numerous twists and turns a secret.” Declared Ramón Hernáez, Director of Yesterday Origins and co-founder of Pendulo Studios.
In Yesterday Origins, you play as John Yesterday and Pauline Petit, a couple who own an antiquities shop in Paris. Although they lead an apparently normal life, John and Pauline hide a dark secret: they became immortal following an alchemistic transformation. However, not everything went according to plan for John. The potion he took during his rite was tainted, causing him to lose his memory each time he comes back to life. On a quest for his distant memories, our hero and his companion will take players on an adventure around the world and through time, alternating between past and present.
From the Spanish Inquisition to present day, from Scotland to Amsterdam or even Paris, players must solve complex puzzles and mysterious riddles to discover the origin of the immortal power that so many covet…
Fully dubbed (more than 25 main characters) and boasting an original score, the game addresses adult topics and sprinkles in saucy dialog while retaining a relaxed feel and a good dose of black humour, something Pendulo Studios does all too well. With more than 20 years’ experience in story-driven videogames, Pendulo hits the mark with its first-ever 3D game while conserving its unique graphic style. The graphic novel inspired look is enhanced for the first time by one-of-a-kind visual effects (dynamic shadows, physics engine, p etc.).
Yesterday Origins is an adventure game co-produced by Microïds and Pendulo Studios and is scheduled for release on October 13th, a change from the original release on September, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and Mac.
