"Yesterday Origins" will take the immortal heroes, John Yesterday and his other half Pauline, not only across the world, but across history itself. This interwoven narration gives the plot its depth and richness.

It's 1418. In the dead of night, young John is publically humiliated and dragged through the street. He is imprisoned by the Spanish Inquisition under suspicion of witchcraft.

Later, he undergoes an alchemical transformation making him immortal. But the potion used during the ceremony has been tampered with by priest Ginés de Orduña. This means that after each resurrection, John completely forgets who he is.

In the current day, John and Pauline are searching for an artefact that is needed to make the potion, this time correctly. During their investigation, they will have to face dangerous new protagonists who want to steal their secrets...

Yesterday Origins is a remarkable graphic adventure that, however, does not manage to shine in Nintendo Switch due several technical issues. It remains the memorable piece of art it once was, with a wonderful story to follow, but there are some serious drops regarding framerate that need to be worked on.

Yesterday Origins is a great graphic adventure with influences from the old ones and with a very interesting story. However, it has some plot holes and a few technical issues.

All round, it’s a solid point and click adventure game that combines that familiar old-school formula with a couple of clever quirks. It has a decent story to boot as well, though there are slight issues with pacing, both in terms of the how the narrative unspools combined with some of the more obtuse puzzles. Together, these create a barrier that will stump players while ultimately holding Yesterday Origins back from greatness.
