    A quality adventure game with a sinister and twisting story complete with layers of puzzles and a smattering of dark humor and obscure references.

    My only complaint is that it is a bit short, but that is easily overlooked when you consider its low price point ($4.99) and its innovative graphic style.

    My only regret was that it didn't go on longer (but sequel maybe, please?)

    An engrossing and rewarding experience. I was surprised by its plot, intrigued by its themes and writing, and stimulated by its many puzzles.

    What a pity that Yesterday has such a rough plot and shallow characters, because it's instead one of the most intriguing and mysterious adventures on the App Store.

    Pendulo is on the right track. The conspiracy thriller with its’ complex story keeps you on your edge, while the puzzles are mostly conservative, but are nicely tailored to the narrative.

    Yesterday is as dark as a summer's day and as funny as a kick in the teeth. The puzzles are poorly designed and the story barely even makes sense. Leave this one in the past.
