No past, no present, no future; only the impending moment of “dead synchronicity” ahead. Will you be able to stop it? Because, otherwise... what will you do when Time dissolves itself?

    Having as its focal point a topic that will never cease to preoccupy humanity, boasting ideal scaling of the plot and being equipped with one of the best characters' roster that a representative of adventure games can present, it makes us already expect the first announcement regarding the beginning of its sequel's production.

    A good point & click adventure that takes place in a hostile and unusual environment, with lots of interesting characters & puzzles to solve, although they don´t always have the most logical solution.

    An interesting setting, good puzzles and peculiar art style make Dead Synchronicity a worthwhile adventure both for veterans and newbies of the genre.

    It's an interesting graphic adventure, but in the end the narrative feels less and less focused, and the puzzles are way too easy for veterans of the genre.

    Surreal and unforgivingly sinister Adventure in a post-apocalyptic world that stumbles over the generic puzzle design.

    The gameplay mechanics and presentation values in Dead Synchronicity: Tomorrow Comes Today are solid, but the puzzles will frustrate a segment of the audience. Worse yet, the end does not pay off the effort to get there.

Normally adventure games are kind ofThis game is one of the best adventures I have ever played - and I played a lot, let me tell you that. Normally adventure games are kind of funny and suited with a huge amount of humor, but this one really gets into your bones - the music, the art style, the story. Everything makes perfectly sense and you feel like you're a part of this post apocalyptical atmosphere.

    Dead Synchonicity shows a hard and brutal truth, a possibility, how the world could be if everyone's looking out for himself. There are many games with similar topics in games, but Dead Synchro somehow manages it to get the player's attention immediately and conveys a exciting and fascinating plot which will make your pulse go faster! Fictiorama succeeded in making a super classic point and click adventure.

    Enjoy!

It's a postapokalyptic, dystopian, punk and nihilistic ride of what may or maybe not our future one day. The most intriguing thing about the setting is the people, their relations, their societies, their bussinesses. Bizzare as it maybe it also makes quite a lot of sense and that makes it even scarier. Anyway, well written and spoken dialogues, very good comic graphics, quite a few bright ideas and superb storytelling that makes you discover the story the same way you rebuild a shattered mosaic. I like that a lot. Can't think of any downsides apart from the ending. Me and my partner had really great time playing this. Expand

The mysterious story kept me playing and the puzzles are - mostly - well implemented. For sure it is not an adventure that sacrifices Gameplay for the sake of the story. If you love traditional adventure games you'll probably not complain about that - if not you probably will. Completing this game will likely take around 6 hours, maybe 7 or so if you take your time.

    There is a lot of dialog here, which is not uncommon for adventure games. Rushing it won't do you good. The more you listen the more you get drawn into this world. But keep in mind that this is only the first game. There will be sequels continuing this story. At the end you will learn a lot about the protagonist which from my point of view will probably give you at least some sort of accomplishment but it will lead to much bigger questions. No idea yet when the next game will be out but I'm looking forward to it.

    A good story, interesting and engaging characters and an immersive world - those are the highlights of this game.

    Abysmal voice acting, lazy animations are among the low points though. Puzzles are a bit above casual level but well integrated into the world for the most part and do not take you out of the context of the story (as happens with surprisingly many puzzle elements in good stories)

    All in all - i like that game ... had it been given a visual overhaul and especially better voice acting - it could have made it to my top choices for classic adventures. Since the primary concern of a good adventure is the story and the immersion of the player into the story - it is still clearly a good choice though.

    postscript:
    I am aware that much of the visual design is just that - a design choice. but i found the very nice backgrounds contrasting with the paper-cut-out design of the characters. Personally, i would have rather gone with a design similar to that of Flashback/Another World (flatshade vector models) - with fluid but low detail animation - instead of the more detailed and barely animated design adopted - but that is a matter of taste i think.

    Great game. The story and the soundtrack are really the two points that stand out from the very beginning. The graphics are hand drawn and theGreat game. The story and the soundtrack are really the two points that stand out from the very beginning. The graphics are hand drawn and the animations are limited. I'm personally a fan of more realistic graphics (like those in Dracula:Path of the Dragon for example) but some people prefer a more simplistic approach. I think the former would suit this game very well though. It's not a lengthy game by any means. I managed to finish it in about 5 hours while checking every area thoroughly. It is however very atmospheric. Overall, a great experience I would say ! Expand
