Yesterday Origins Announced for Xbox One

Game publisher Microïds announced that it plans to release Yesterday Origins, a new adventure game from Pendulo Studios, for Xbox Oneon September 29, 2016.

Yesterday Origins invites lovers of adventure and mystery to cross the globe and the mists of time for a brand new title from the creators of the “Runaway” saga, drawing on Pendulo Studios’ 20 years of making adventure games with compelling storylines and memorable characters. 

In Yesterday Origins, the main protagonists John Yesterday and his partner Pauline, immortals who own an antiques store in Paris, travel across the globe through multiple periods. The story takes place across the current and medieval eras, through a series of flashbacks. At the beginning of the game, a young John is imprisoned by the Spanish Inquisition for witchcraft, just prior to the sequence of events that will change his life/lives forever. Although not yet able to resurrect at that point of his life, he has already attracted the attention and fallen foul of Church authorities due to his unusual ability to understand and speak every language he encounters.

Most of the adventure, however, is set in the present day, and the player assumes the roles of John and Pauline in turns as they seek the origins of immortality. Other members of the large cast (over 25 characters) have other plans for them… This will lead to a breathtaking chase across the world, from France to the United States, with stops in Spain, the Netherlands or the United Kingdom along the way.

The game is fully voice-acted and with an original musical score. The distinctive tone of the studio’s titles is present: mature, always offbeat, with a sprinkle of black humor. The interface and controls are equally suited to game controllers and to the mouse.
