Yesterday Origins for PC, PS4 and etc. is an adventure game which brings a continuation to Yesterday, a game released back in 2012. Yesterday Origins was developed by Pendulo - the creators of the original game, also popular for The Next Big Thing, as well as the Runaway series.
The campaign focuses on John Yesterday's further adventures, who is the protagonist of the original game. The plot here was divided into two timelines, thus the players are acquainted both with present-day events and those which took place back in the era of the Spanish Inquisition.
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.
Yesterday Origins for PC, PS4 and etc. does not make use of any elements present in the developer's previous projects -it is Pendulo's first fully three-dimensional game. Conversion to 3D did not spoil the game's art style however, thus Yesterday Origins offers cartoonish visuals again.
