Dead Synchronicity: Tomorrow Comes Today Hits Kickstarter

Fictiorama Studios’ dystopian 2D point-and-clicker Dead Synchronicity: Tomorrow Comes Today has just hit Kickstarter and the Steam Greenlight process.

The game is set in a world ravaged by a terrible pandemic, turning humanity into the Dissolved. Their illness manifests in giving the sufferer supernatural cognitive abilities, but it also leads them to a gruesome death. The root of the illness seems to be a chain of natural disasters that devastates the planet, called The Great Wave. The player controls amnesiac Michael, a man who must find out who he is and what has happened, before time itself dissolves in a moment of dead synchronicity.

I spent some time with the alpha demo (available to download on the Kickstarter page) and the game looks to be shaping up very nicely. It features a pleasingly bleak abstract art style that gives everything a lovely dose of solidity, whilst still making things easy to see. The sound design is just as thoughtful and full of incidental ambient noise like dogs barking in the distance. When music does kick in, it is varied and appropriate to the scene. The first elements of the story are quite expository by nature but the game does a great job at holding your interest.

It all adds up to something that looks like it is well worth backing in my opinion and I look forward to seeing how the final game turns out.
