Fictiorama Studios’ point and click adventure Dead Synchronicity: Tomorrow Comes Today is now available digitally on PS4, with a boxed version arriving in stores on October 7th.
Published by BadLand Games, Dead Synchronicity tells the story of Michael, a man with no past who must recover his identity and decode the two events that brought the world to the edge of collapse. The first is the so-called “Great Wave,” an inexplicable chain of natural disasters. The second is a pandemic that has turned humans into “the Dissolved,” infected beings with special cognitive powers whose sick bodies will eventually dissolve into blood. If Michael doesn’t hurry, he won’t be able to avoid the impending moment of “dead synchronicity” … when time itself starts to dissolve.
Dead Synchronicity pays homage to classic adventure games such as The Secret of Monkey Island, Broken Sword, and Day of the Tentacle, with more mature themes along the lines of I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream and Sanitarium. Solve each puzzle to get closer to the truth, guiding Michael to a future he may (or may not) be ready to face in this disturbing addition to the adventure genre.
The game’s original soundtrack was composed and performed by indie rock band, Kovalski – which consists of Nayra Garcia (bass / keyboards), Mario Oliván (lead guitar), and Alberto Oliván (voice, composition and guitar). Formed in 2007, Kovalski’s sound is influenced by ‘70s orchestral rock and Italian Giallo soundtracks, and it’s intensely linked to Dead Synchronicity’s plot and art style.
