In terms of the mechanics, Yesterday Origins follows the pattern of the predecessing game. Thus the players received a typical representative of point-and-click adventure games. For the most part, the player explores the in-game environments, talks to NPCs, gathers items and solves puzzles. A helpful system of tips was implemented, thus the less experienced players were not left alone.

Technical aspects
