Microids announces plans to release Pendulo’s Yesterday Origins worldwide


Game publisher Microids was excited to reveal plans to release a new adventure game from Pendulo Studios, Yesterday Origins, worldwide on September 29, 2016 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Mac.

This title, created by the same group that created the award-winning Runaway saga, marks the first game developed in 3D by Pendulo Studios. This allows for unprecedented visual effects, such as dynamic shadowing and realistic physics, but retains the recognizable “cartoon” graphic style that has been part of their success for over a decade.



Here’s a quick “About”, as presented on the official press release:

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 title features an original music score as well as full voice acting. The tone of the studio’s titles is present, of course; mature, offbeat, and with a sprinkle of black humor. The interface and controls are equally suited to both game controllers and mouse as well.


Will you be checking out the new title when it arrives?
