Pendulo gets started on Yesterday Origins for 2016

If it seems like the last adventure game from Pendulo Studios was Yesterday, that's because it was, back in 2012. And as it turns out, the next one will be too, as today Microïds revealed that its previously announced partnership with the Spanish Studio will be for Yesterday Origins, a pseudo-sequel due out next year.

Very little has been revealed about the game's story so far, but Origins will continue the tale of its predecessor's protagonist, John Yesterday. This time around, however, the modern day events will be explored simultaneously with events dating back to the time of the Spanish Inquisition.

Origins marks the first game from Pendulo to be created in 3D, but the developers are quick to assure fans that the new adventure will "keep the very identifiable cartoon graphical touch that made the studio so successful." The game will be released across a variety of platforms, including PC, Mac, Xbox One, PS4, iOS and Android, with "optimized visual effects and interfaces specifically designed for each type of platform, whether they require a mouse, a pad or a touch screen."

There is no firm timeline for the game's completion, but it is currently on track for release sometime in 2016.
