Today, Microïds and Pendulo Studios announced that they will release the adventure game Yesterday Origins on Nintendo Switch on May 31. The game will include a unique artistic style as players solve the mystery of two immortal characters.
It all starts in the 15th century, when the young John Yesterday is imprisoned for sorcery by the Spanish Inquisition. After escaping, he undergoes an alchemical ritual that makes him immortal. But things do not go as planned, and each time he is resurrected he loses his memory, retaining only flashes of his previous lives. In modern times, John lives peacefully in Paris with his girlfriend, Pauline. She is also immortal, but unlike John, she has kept her memories of her past lives. Together they will try to solve the mysteries of the past and reproduce the ritual so that John can keep his memories. They are not the only ones in search of these secrets however…
With its unique artistic style and mature storyline, punctuated by offbeat humour throughout, Yesterday Origins takes Nintendo Switch users on a journey through times. Players take part in an investigation full of twists and turns, solve complex puzzles and successively take on the roles of John Yesterday and Pauline Petit to discover the secret of immortality that many have sought before them.
In addition, Pendulo Studios has announced that it will release an adventure game starring John Blacksad later this year, as well as a game inspired by Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo next year. Stay tuned for more news here on Gaming Trend.
