Have you ever played an adventure game and thought “You know, this is too uplifting, I need something more depressing.” Maybe you thought the twisted world of Sanitarium seemed like a nice vacation, or that the issues raised in I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream weren’t quite heavy enough. Good news, Fictiorama Studios has a game for you! In Dead Synchronicity: Tomorrow Comes Today you’ll play Michael, a survivor of a series of worldwide catastrophes called the Great Wave that brought mankind to the brink of extinction. To make matters worse survivors have to deal with a pandemic that puts them on the road to an untimely death that’s as messy as it is gruesome. Players will have to guide Michael through the shattered remains of Earth as he attempts to figure out who he is, what’s happening to him, and how to do so without getting in trouble from the ruthless overseers at the camp he’s in.
The Kickstarter campaign for Dead Synchronicity: Tomorrow Comes Today has a relatively humble funding target of $45,000 and runs until April 12th. If you’re not sure whether or not you can handle all the happiness that Dead Synchronicity has to offer you can always give the demo a shot.
