Dead Synchronicity: Tomorrow comes Today is beautifully crafted 2D sci-fi point and click adventure inspired by The Secret of Monkey Island, Broken Sword, Day of the Tentacle, but has a more mature theme, similar to I have no mouth and I must Scream or Sanitarium.
It features a classic point and click interface, a mature and dark storyline set in a dystopian sci-fi world, an excellent soundtrack and a beautiful, stylish hand drawn art style. It really does feel like a classic old-school point and click adventure (albeit with prettier visuals). Featuring a puzzle style that will be familiar to anyone who has played a good point and click adventure before, with well thought out, logical solutions.
The world and storyline of Dead Synchronicity deserve special mention, as they’re both well formed and well crafted. With the world in a state of decay after it was his by something called ‘the great wave’, which destroyed all energy sources and communications, plunging the world into disarray. Worse still, a terrible disease is sweeping the population, turning them into ‘the Dissolved’, making them delirious, giving them supernatural powers and eventually killing them.
Throughout this, you play as Michael, a man who can’t remember his past, who’s trying to uncover what happened to the world, and eventually stop time itself from dissolving. It’s an intriguing storyline and a great looking game, full of interesting characters and ideas, and a level of maturity rarely seen in games.
