Microids sent us a preview demo of Yesterday Origins, to be released on September 29 on PC, Xbox One and PS4. The demo includes the first 2 chapters of the game and introduces the player with the gameplay mechanics. Those familiar with point and click games will obviously feel right at home, though you won't only need to combine items this time. Indeed, some combinations will require matching clues to motivate the character to do associate the selected objects. It is then very important to learn some information about what's going on, by talking to other characters for example. We'll tell you more about the game in our August podcast, which will hopefully be recorded sometime this week.
Note: Although the developers claim the game is best played with a gamepad (the irony when you think of it), we used the mouse as our wireless 360 controller was not recognized.

The game doesn't have to rely on cheap jump scares normally associated with traditional game design in VR. The immersion just does it automatically. It's something a normal TV can't compete with. (2 Hours ago)
the game should come with a warning and a disclaimer should you decide to play it in VR. As soon as you're there, it's extremely uncomfortable, even if nothing is happening. (2 Hours ago)
@alimokrane: Trust me on this, if immersion and horror is the aim here, and it is, then first person and VR makes perfect sense. I'm not joking when I say this... (2 Hours ago)
@alimokrane: The demo is tame compared to what I seen in the first 45 minutes. The atmosphere got ramped up big time, and don't be thinking you're safe behind closed doors or walls. (2 Hours ago)
@MrWhite: I know people prefer VR or first person view but if they were to patch 3rd person view, my life would be complete. (2 Hours ago)
