    After years of absence, Pendulo managed to take the good ideas of the average first game and create an exciting, dark mystery that not only answers all the past answers but surpasses the previous Yesterday game in every single aspect of its design. It reminded us how true sequels should be made.

    A story full of suspense and black humor, besides intriguing enigmas, is what allows Yesterday Origins to be one of the best "point & click" adventure of the year.

    Even with a four-year delay, the story of John Yesterday is finally completed the way it deserved. I do not have the slightest hesitation to admit that, after the arrival of "Origins", the “Yesterday” series is the best and most interesting adventure game that the Spanish developers have given us so far in their twelve-year presence.

    If you like adventure games Yesterday Origins is for you. Pendulo's game has very few drawbacks, the story is quite long and the humor still here. A very good game indeed.

    Yesterday Origins marks a welcome return of Pendulo Studios after a lengthy break and makes the original game look like a paltry demo. I would call this return triumphant if not for numerous technical problems.
