In Yesterday Origins, players will take on two roles: John Yesterday and Pauline Petit. The couple owns an antique shop in Paris.

But wait…not so fast. We need to back up.

It’s 1418. As a youth, John has been imprisoned for witchcraft. He also experiences an alchemical transformation and is made immortal. At least that’s what’s supposed to have happened.

Unfortunately, the potion used in the ceremony had been tampered with, causing John to forget who he is each time he’s resurrected.

Okay. We can leave yesterday and return to today now. An artefact is required to brew an unadulterated batch of the immortality potion in order to remedy John’s “Who am I?” problem. He and Pauline set off to find it. During their journey, they will face trecherous enemies who are out to steal the duo’s secrets.

The game will take place across several different eras in 10 different locations. It will also feature over 25 NPCs. The game’s narrative will include Pendulo’s customary dark humor, adult topics and saucy dialog.

Yesterday Origins is set to launch September 29th for Windows, Mac, PS4 and Xbox One.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
