"Who is John Yesterday?"

Best/Worst name

The Next Big Thing was alright. Nothing really stood out from it though. Just a decent adventure game.

But, sure, I'll give Yesterday a try.

Just the fact that there is still a developer that consistently makes good point and click adventure games with high production value is reason enough to support them if you're a fan of the genre. That being said, I actually enjoyed TNBT quite a lot, and think it's a great game.

@Legend: Pendulo has a good track record w/ the Runaway series, but TNBT seems just more of the same. Lacks innovation and the writing was not specially good, in my opinion. Why are they still making adventure point n click games? Europe, that's why.

@Winternet I dunno, I kinda liked TNBT as much as I liked the Runaway trilogy. And yeah, we definitely have Europe to thank for these games still being made today; but also publishers wouldn't bring them here if no one bought them. :)

Wow, Yesterday is third on the popular games forums by the power of this thread alone! You're welcome, Pendulo. lol

Keep up the good work, Legend. I don't have the 30 bucks needed to preorder Yesterday but damn do I ever want a free copy of The Next Big Thing. That quick look made it seem quite decent.

How am I gong to go back in time to yesterday to take advantage of this deal? Your point is moot.

Might be worth noting that TNBT is currently on Amazon for 20p.

That's a crazy good deal! Looks like it's UK only, though. It's $30 on amazon.com.

Visually, this and TNBT are stunning. I want to buy them for just their art style, but I have a habit of quitting point and click adventures before the "adventure" even starts.

Hopefully they will be on sale during Steam's Summer Sale.

Yeah, I love the visual style of Pendulo's games. I always play them in 1080p on my HDTV and they look amazing. I can't wait for the Steam sale.. I want to play this game now!

Please help! I'm stuck on the part with the katana, all the hint says is have you tried grabbing the katana :(

Right, is this game any good? Reviews have been ranging from the awful to amazing. Thoughts?

#22 Posted by yyZiggurat (1014 posts) -

I bought Yesterday because it came with The Next Big Thing. I'm not that far into it yet but I think I liked what little I played of TNBT more than Yesterday. I wasn't surprised when I heard Vinny said he played it. It's great that GB has someone repping PC gaming/obscure Steam releases.

@returnofjake: Haven't finished it yet. From what I played, It's not as good as The Next Big Thing, but it's a decent adventure game. Considering that TNBT wasn't as good as Runaway 3, I hope this is not an indication of where Pendulo is headed with their adventure games. :P I still enjoyed playing TNBT and now Yesterday, though.

@HomemadeZiggurat: When did Vinny say he played Yesterday? The bombcast?

Vinny finished it and found it "pretty good". Go to 7:02:

@AssInAss: Awesome! It seems like they intend to do a Quick Look for it.
