Discover the latest adventure from Pendulo Studios, creators of the Runaway series!

"Yesterday Origins" will take the immortal heroes, John Yesterday and his other half Pauline, not only across the world, but across history itself. This interwoven narration gives the plot its depth and richness.

It's 1418. In the dead of night, young John is publically humiliated and dragged through the street. He is imprisoned by the Spanish Inquisition under suspicion of witchcraft.

Later, he undergoes an alchemical transformation making him immortal. But the potion used during the ceremony has been tampered with by priest Ginés de Orduña. This means that after each resurrection, John completely forgets who he is.

In the current day, John and Pauline are searching for an artefact that is needed to make the potion, this time correctly. During their investigation, they will have to face dangerous new protagonists who want to steal their secrets...

  1. A sequel that almost makes the first game obsolete
    by talgaby, Hungary - Apr 10th 2018

    Yesterday Origins is marketed as a prequel, but in reality it is both that and a traditional sequel to Pendulo's darkest and most realistic adventure game.

    Set both in the middle ages and modern days, it has quite a bit of character drama around the life of the immortal protagonist. Despite the outworldy premise and some extreme plot points, the characters are realistically fallible and morally grey, especially the girlfriend character in modern days.
    The plot itself is gritty to the point where sometimes the typical point 'n' click gameplay bits almost feel out of place, despite their mostly logical nature.

    On the whole though, this is probably one of Pendulo's best games, one that is so complete in its storytelling that you can safely skip the first game and just rely on this one's superior narrative and play time.
