Being a product of the ’90s, I believe there is no such thing as too many platformers, and a puzzle platformer with a bit of time traveling thrown in sounds even better. Developer Bitmap Galaxy and publisher Blowfish Studios are delivering just that with YesterMorrow, which launches on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on Nov. 5. You play as Yui, who must travel between timelines, trying to fix the post-apocalyptic present by traveling into a more peaceful past. In particular, she has to retrieve and restore the Sun in order to save her family and fight back the dastardly Shadows.
Yui has the ability to fling energy bombs and freeze time, and puzzle-solving involves taking actions in one reality in order to progress further in another version of reality. Players can expect to traverse different landscapes like forests, desert ruins, and icy caverns, and there will be plenty of fighting amid the puzzles. The YesterMorrow trailer will give you a better idea of what to expect.
YesterMorrow will retail for $19.99 USD / €17.99 / £15.99 / $24.99 AUD, and it will support English, Spanish, German, Russian, French, Chinese (Simplified and Traditional), and Japanese. Bitmap Galaxy and Blowfish Studios are eager to get this platformer in your hands, since Blowfish co-founder Ben Lee joked, “We wish we could jump forward in time to Nov. 5 so we wouldn’t have to wait to share the game with everyone on PC and consoles!”
