[Beyond PlayStation] Dead Synchronicity: Tomorrow Comes Today Review
Dead Synchronicity: Tomorrow Comes Today from Fictiorama Studios and BadLand Games is an interesting adventure game on Switch. Learn more in our Dead Synchronicity: Tomorrow Comes Today review!
Dead Synchronicity: Tomorrow Comes Today is quite a dark point and click adventure game with elements of science fiction. A great catastrophe called the Great Wave has left mankind in the brink of extinction with a weird disease that turns people into the “Dissolved” making sure that most of those who are still alive won’t have a shot at staying that way.
You play as Michael who wakes up in a trailer with no memories of what is going on. He is tasked with finding what the disease really is, hoping to find a cure in the process before he also turns into one of the Dissolved. Since this is a point and click adventure, you will have the opportunity to explore many of the game’s areas in a non-linear order while you search for clues and items that will aid you on your quest, interacting with NPC who sometimes don’t even give a damn about what is going on.
You will need to pay attention to your surroundings so that you can find the items you can click on to add them to your inventory, as well as to the chats you have with the varied cast of NPC you will interact with. Point and click games can sometimes be a bit weird about some of their puzzles, but I didn’t feel that the puzzles for Dead Synchronicity: Tomorrow Comes Today were ever too obscure or illogical.
The art style for the game’s graphics is definitely interesting since it features a very angular design that makes everything pop, giving it a dark and gritty look that at times reminded me of The Walking Dead series. Everything looks filthy, dilapidated and damaged, and the people are wearing old or dirty clothing that drives home the point that you are living in a post-apocalyptic world.
This is the second time I’ve had the pleasure of playing this game since I already beat it and got all of its trophies on the PlayStation 4, so my total time with the game was shorter than the average run – but overall you could definitely get through this one in a single long afternoon depending on how good you are with point and click games. Overall, you’re looking at around 3-5 hours or so for this one, so you should definitely take your time and see everything the game has to offer.
Dead Synchronicity: Tomorrow Comes Today is a solid point and click adventure game on the Nintendo Switch that feels right at home in this hybrid console. Having played the game once on PS4 and taking it for another spin on the Nintendo Switch allowed me to pick up on some details and nuances I didn’t notice during my first run, so you should definitely take things slowly as you absorb what is going on in this post-apocalyptic adventure.
