Upon seeing the art for Dead Synchronicity: Tomorrow Comes Today in my inbox I knew I wanted to play this game. It looks like a mix of Samurai Jack and Curse Of Monkey Island.
Dead Synchronicity: Tomorrow Comes Today comes from Fictiorama Studios and is published by BadLand Games. The game has been released already for Steam (where it’s sitting at 9/10), PlayStation 4, IOS and Android. No release date for the Switch has been announced but I’m amped to play it.
The game is set in a dystopian future, and promises an atmospheric and dark storyline that looks like a German Expressionism-inspired 2D art style and plenty of witty dialogue that should please adventure fans.
Dead Synchronicity tells the story of Michael, a man with no past who must recover his identity and decode the two events that brought the world to the edge of collapse. The first is the so-called “Great Wave,” an inexplicable chain of natural disasters. The second is a pandemic that has turned humans into “the Dissolved,” infected beings with special cognitive powers whose sick bodies will eventually dissolve into blood. If Michael doesn’t hurry, he won’t be able to avoid the impending moment of “dead synchronicity” … when time itself starts to dissolve.
