- Awesome atmosphere and storyline
- High quality yet indie touch
- Nothing relevant
While we were wondering why mobile gaming isn't as fertile soil for classical adventure games as it would seem, here it comes Yesterday, created by Spanish developer Pendulo Studios and distributed worldwide by Bulkypix. If Yesterday reminds you of that lovely PC game called Runaway, it's because Pendulo is behind both titles.
Yesterday brings a native interface -especially suitable for tablets- to make gaming experience more enjoyable. However, its best virtue is how deep and rich its storyline is, a truly noir novel in which you actually want to find everything to advance to further stages and how what's going on and why (and who's the assassin by the way). In addition, it's well worthy to have your earphones at hand, because soundtrack is absolutely above average regarding this kind of point-and-click games. The hint system has been delicately designed to let players safely tightrope walk between spoilers and insanity.
You will play alternatively one of the three player characters to unwind the story. Everything around this game has a careful, high quality yet indie touch, from several brush strokes paying homage to the genre to an overall atmosphere of intrigue and mystery. Although there are no gore or nude scenes, there's blood and guts here and there, so this game may not be suitable for children. We'd like a system to choose between a bloody and a milky version of the game, if it isn't much to ask.
Anyway, there's no real reason to not install the free version. Then, it will be up to you whether to upgrade to the complete version.
"An experience you'll be unlikely to forget." (Joystiq)
"Yesterday will sate the needs of adventure game fans." (Destructoid)
"The game feels like a painting come to life." (Strategy Informer)
"One of the best point-and-click adventure games to come along in recent memory." (Gamezone)
The first thriller by the indie studio that created the million-selling Runaway saga!
A psycho is killing beggars alive in New York. A Y-shaped scar forms in the hands of seemingly unrelated people. The press and the media just don't care, so Henry White, a young NGO volunteer, will be the first to investigate the crimes with his friend Cooper. They are two of the three playable characters in Yesterday, the third being none other than the enigmatic John Yesterday, who is dragged into this twisted plot after his memory is completely wiped.
How far will you go to find out who John Yesterday is?
An adult, noir thriller full of unexpected twists and turns.
A magnificient visual style that mixes videogames, movies and comics.
An innovative interface based on innumerable blow-ups. A perfect game for your tablet!
Useful and well-designed help for players, via a hotspot marker and text hints.
A rich musical score that not only fits but also enhances the story.
A storyline full of discrete references and tributes to movies, series, games, music and novels.

Comments and ratings for Yesterday
The game is awsome and I loved the atmosphere ..... what made me attractive was the music and the story which really really match each other...superb!
Best game I've ever played on the tab
Great art, story, excellently done. A must have. What's the difference between the free and payed addition? If it's just for donations, I'll happily send five bucks your way, but I'd rather not lose my save data. Thanks for the awesome work!
Good story, just the right amount of challenge. My only criticism is that there's not enough of it.
Brilliant and addictive!
And for a free game even more so. I'm wanting more
It was all around fantastic. The game play was fantastic and the story was compelling. We really need more games like this on the market!
