Excerpt: It's the sign of a strong point-and-click adventure puzzle when you know what you have to do, have a basic idea as to how to do it, but don’t know how you’re actually going to. Essentially, you see the door, know it’s locked, and need find a way to open it.
Pros: The stellar opening, Clever use of amnesia, Interesting art style
Cons: Nonsensical puzzles (even by genre standards), Condescending hint system, A short, stunted story
Excerpt: It has only been a year since the release of Pendulo Studios' The Next Big Thing, featuring the developer's trademark trappings of beautiful graphics and cel-shaded animation and storytelling liberally laced with eccentric characters and twisted humor.
Excerpt: Remember Runaway ? The Next BIG Thing ? Or even the Spanish language Hollywood Monsters ? Fun, comedic animated adventures every one. All of them Pendulo creations. So now we have Yesterday , and more of the same. Except we don’t.
Summary: In the opening seconds of Yesterday, you see bloody pentagrams scrawled on the floor, hear tortured screams, and spot references to alchemy, the Vatican Secret Archives, and the Spanish Inquisition.
Pros: Some interesting story twists, Good array of puzzles, Lively visuals
Cons: Uneven cast of characters, Disjointed pace, Inconsistent voice acting, Ending not timed well
Summary: Do you like crime and mystery stories? You do? Then this game is for you! Let us introduce you to the enigmatic John Yesterday, an amnesiac who must discover the secrets of the missing beggars in New York City in this new title from Pendulo Studios.
