Growing up, I never had access to a PC so I missed the whole point-and-click adventure game phase in the late 80’s/early 90’s. I remember playing the original Leisure Suit Larry at my friend’s house when I was a kid, but that was about it. I never touched Monkey Island, Myst, Grim Fandango, or any of other essential games from that genre.
Thanks to Telltale’s Walking Dead and Wolf Among Us, I’ve begun to see what all the hype was about with point-and-click adventure games so when I heard the disturbing premise to Dead Synchronicity: Tomorrow comes Today my ears perked up. I guess I wasn’t the only one because after a successful Kickstarter campaign the game has been Greenlit by the Steam community.

A terrible pandemic is turning all of humanity into the Dissolved – the sick whose deliria provide them with supernatural cognitive powers… but also steer them towards a gruesome death.
The root of this illness seems to be the Great Wave, an inexplicable chain of natural disasters that destroyed all energy sources and communications and plunged the world into a chaos ruthlessly controlled by both the authorities and the army alike.
So the player will have to help Michael, a man with no past, recover his identity and decode the events that brought the world to the edge of collapse. Because, if Michael doesn’t hurry, he won’t be able to avoid the impending moment of dead synchronicity… when Time itself dissolves.
Could you then describe Dead Synchronicity: Tomorrow comes Today as “Guybrush meets Mad Max meets 12 Monkeys” ? Well, we guess you could…
