Yesterday announced by Runaway dev
Adventure game developer Pendulo Studios is giving its comic muscle a rest, after flexing it in The Next Big Thing and the Runaway series, with "dark thriller" Yesterday. Unveiled today, it's slated to launch in the second quarter of 2012.
Publisher Focus Home Interactive explains the setup: "In New York City, beggars are disappearing one after another, only to be found burnt alive. Meanwhile, a Y-shaped scar forms in the palm of the hands of seemingly unrelated people."
Enter philanthropic rich heir Henry White and his chum Cooper to investigate the mystery, along with a third playable character, the "enigmatic" amnesiac John Yesterday. Doubtless, objects will be clicked, collected and combined.
While there's no confirmation of platforms yet, PC has traditionally been Pendulo's main focus. The studio has made Mac, Nintendo DS, and Wii versions of past games too.
