Timely: Yesterday Came Out Today

By Adam Smith on March 22nd, 2012.

He believes in it

Yesterday, from Pendulo the creators of the Runaway series and The Next Big Thing, is now out. It’s £19.99 direct from the publisher and there’s a trailer below. Of the few companies plugging away at the point and click genre, Pendulo are the one I’m least acquainted with. I’ve seen videos aplenty and even played the first hour or so of the first Runaway but I never felt inspired to continue, let alone to plough through a trilogy.

Focus Interactive’s forthcoming adventure The Next Big Thing, which is apparently “wacky” and set in the Golden Age of Hollywood, has a black and white parody trailer out, which you can see below. It features heroines, robots, more robots, a boxing gentleman, and Quintin having a bath (as you can see pictured above). Whether it’s actually the next big thing? Well, I would suggest: “No.” It’s the next game from Pendulo, who previously produced the Runaway series. That apparently sold a million copies. Which means something. See if you can work out what that is.
