Point-and-click horror sci-fi DEAD SYNCHRONICITY due on PS4 from October 4th
In the mood for a stylish 2D adventure game inspired by Mad Max and 12 Monkeys? If so, you’re in for a treat with DEAD SYNCHRONICITY: TOMORROW COMES TODAY.
MADRID Sept. 28th, 2016 — Published by BadLand Games and developed by Fictiorama Studios, Dead Synchronicity is an unsettling point-and-click adventure that hits PlayStation 4 digital on October 4th, with the boxed edition being released from October 7th. The Xbox One digital release date is still to be confirmed.
The game 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.
Featuring a script with dystopian overtones, 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.
