Yesterday Origins, Launches on PS4, XB1, & PC Sept 29, First Trailer

New Adventure Title from Creators of Heralded Runaway Adventure Saga
Offers Globetrotting Journey and Time-spanning Mystery on PS4, Xbox One, PC & Mac 

Co-producers Microids and Pendulo Studios today announced they will be unveiling more about Yesterday Origins, the upcoming game that takes players on an adventure across the globe and through time, at the upcoming E3 2016 videogames expo. In a teaser video released today, players will get their first taste of a quest full of unexpected turns, disturbing characters and Pendulo Studios’ trademark dark sense of humor.

Scheduled to launch on September 29, 2016 for PlayStation®4, Xbox One, PC and Mac, Yesterday Origins invites mystery and adventure lovers to take a journey through time and around the world in a new production by the creators of the world-famous Runaway saga. With more than 20 years of experience in story-driven videogames, Pendulo translates its inimitable graphic style seamlessly to 3D in the studio’s first 3D game. The graphic novel-style look is enhanced for the first time by advanced visual effects including dynamic shadows and the implementation of an in-game physics engine.

In Yesterday Origins, players take on roles as John Yesterday and Pauline Petit, an immortal couple who own an antiquities shop in Paris, in an adventure around the world and through time. The story begins when a young John is imprisoned by the Spanish Inquisition for sorcery and must use his cunning to escape the prison guards. While most of the game takes place in the present, the Spanish Inquisition scene is the first of several sequences that alternate between past and present, recounting the origin of John’s coveted immortal powers.

The game has more than 25 main characters, all of whom are fully voiced, and boasts an original score. While the game addresses adult themes and sprinkles in racy dialog, it retains a relaxed feel and a good dose of Pendulo Studios’ black humor. The interface is designed to work equally well for game controllers and for keyboard and mouse on PC and Mac.

Yesterday Origins is an adventure game developed and co-produced by Microids and Pendulo Studios, with a launch date scheduled for September 29, 2016 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and Mac. The game will be available in English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Russian and Polish. The game has not yet been rated by the ESRB but may contain material inappropriate for children.

Yesterday Origins will be presented to the media alongside other Microids titles at E3, the world’s largest videogame expo, in Los Angeles from June 14-16, 2016 in the Concourse Hall, meeting room 8608. Interested media are encouraged to schedule an appointment or drop by to see the game in person.
