Dead Synchronicity: Tomorrow Comes Today arrives to Nintendo Switch keeping alive its essence. It does not have any new content for those who have already played the game, but it is perfect for those who have not tried the amazing Fictiorama adventure.

Dead Synchronicity: Tomorrow Comes Today is a game that is quite hard to judge. On the one hand the art style, atmosphere, and interesting story premise are things that are worth experiencing. However the pacing of the puzzles can be frustrating, especially when what would appear to be the obvious solutions don't work in a world where regular logic usually applies. It is a very well crafted title and the effort of the team can be seen. At the same time the puzzles are as infuriating as the atmosphere is brilliant.

Dead Synchronicity is back one year later, and keeps the original experiencie unaltered. A great adaptation to the pad controls and a good oportunity for the PS4 players to go inside this distopic tale.

So it's such a galling shame that the game lets itself down so badly. A collection of poor puzzles is frustrating (one in particular required me to email the developer to get past), but forgivable in this lovely daft genre.

Dead Synchronicity: Tomorrow Comes Today's emphasis on horror and trauma will stick with players long after the (abrupt) end.

As a PC port with great 2D art style graphics and a unique storyline full of dark moments, Dead Synchronicity has a lot of potential to be a great game on the PS4.

As far as living up to its Kickstarter promises, DS does an admirable job bring that to life. However, the substantial hurdles that hold it back make it a less than pleasant playing experience.

A surprisingly strong adventure game with a plot that will push you through some of its more ambiguous puzzles, perhaps the biggest downside to Dead Synchronicity: Tomorrow Comes Today is that there needs to be more of it. This story ends just as it's getting started, but while it persists, you'll be pulled into its haunting landscape, where every person you encounter runs the risk of being reduced to a puddle of matter on the floor.

All told, Dead Synchronicity: Tomorrow Comes Today is a fun, worthwhile point-and-click adventure that tells an engaging story. Though there are some issues with voice acting and length, this is a tightly driven narrative that you'll want to see through to the end, and ultimately be glad that you did. We'd give this one a recommendation to anyone who's interested in this niche genre of games. Dead Synchronicity: Tomorrow Comes Today isn't the game that's going to win over those who don't have much interest in this more deliberate kind of experience, but it's still a strong example of the genre and is certainly worth the price of admission.

A very worthwhile game for anyone who enjoys a point and click adventure with a compelling story, characters, and outstanding presentation.
