Dead Synchronicity for Nintendo Switch

Hi, mates! How are you?

We're extremely proud and pleased to announce that Dead Synchronicity: Tomorrow Comes Today has just been released for the awesome Nintendo Switch and can now be purchased via the Nintendo eShop.

When we first heard that the Nintendo NX (which, as you all know, eventually turned into the Nintendo Switch) would feature this awesome mix of handheld and desktop console, we immediately thought Dead Synchronicity: Tomorrow Comes Today would be a great addition to the console’s line-up of games.

Back then, we were working on the PS4 port, shoulder by shoulder with Badland Games, adapting the mechanics and interface to the Sony console. The PS4 version was released a year ago, and so far players and media are loving it (it’s rated with 4,5 stars out of 5 on the Playstation Store!). So, now that we have feedback, we know for certain that Dead Synchronicity: Tomorrow Comes Today is as enjoyable on consoles (if not more!) as it is on any other platform.

A few months ago, as soon as the Nintendo Switch was released, we tried it…, and instantly fell in love with this small, awesome video games console. And, well, considering the great experience that gamers are having with the PS4 version, we knew it would be the perfect platform to port the game to.

So, with the support of Badland Games and the collaboration of our friends at Stage Clear, we're really glad to say that Dead Synchronicity: Tomorrow Comes Today is available to buy now via the Nintendo eShop!

We really hope you enjoy playing it! :)

Cheers,

The Fictiorama crew

P.S. The Underground Highways is progressing slowly but surely. Be sure we will give the game a huge push as soon as our new game, Do Not Feed the Monkeys, is ready to go!

Hi there, mates!

We are really happy to announce Dead Synchronicity: Tomorrow Comes Today for PS4 has been released!

Adapting Dead Synchronicity: Tomorrow Comes Today for PS4 has been an exciting process for us, and it’s been really great to have the support of Badland Games during the development.

We have kept everything we love about the game, like the mood, the challenges, the ease of playability… while taking advantage of the platform’s hardware, specially the controller and its so many handy options.

The game is already available on the PlayStation store and a physical version will be released for European territories on October 7th.

 

We hope PS4 players enjoy the game!

Cheers,

Luis

Strange title for an update? Let's unravel it:

Dead Synchronicity for PS4, 2016, quarter three!

Yes! Dead Synchronicity: Tomorrow Comes Today is coming to PlayStation 4 in the third quarter of 2016! We have partnered with the publisher BadLand Games so that the game is going to be published by them for PS4 digitally worldwide, and we also plan a retail release in select territories.

More about this exciting port in incoming updates!

iOS + Android + more awards

Hi, beloved backers!

What? 9 months? Really? Yes, it seems like it’s been that long since our last update! Let’s go with some news!

iOS

As some of you will have noticed, Dead Synchronicity: Tomorrow Comes Today was released for iPad last August. We put a lot of effort into adapting the game to tablets (no right-click, yikes!), and we tried several approaches to the new interface; we think that, eventually, we came with a solution that makes the game as easy to be played as it is in the PC version. Do you agree?

We also had to deal with some hardware limitations. In fact, considering the size and quality of backgrounds and characters, we focused on devices featuring at least 1GB of RAM (so iPad 4 or better, or iPad Mini 2 or better). Even so, we also had to make the game free memory from time to time, and to adapt some backgrounds (has anyone spotted the differences?).

All in all, we are very, very happy with the port, since we think the feeling of playing the game on an iPad is very similar to the feeling of playing it on a PC; and it was our main goal when we started with it.

ANDROID

Since the very moment we announced we were working on Dead Synchronicity, lots of Android users and some Android focused media asked us if the game was going to be released on Android. Once the game was released on iPad, those requests increased… so both Daedalic and ourselves thought it could be a good idea.

And we did it: Dead Synchronicity: Tomorrow Comes Today was released on Android a couple of months ago.

Regarding this port, and once the interface had already been adapted to touchscreen devices, the main problem we had to deal with was the huge amount of hardware/software combinations, completely impossible to take on (nothing new, according to every developer we talked to about it).

So we tested and tested and tested on different devices, so that the game was compatible with as many of them as possible.

AWARDS

We are really happy with the feedback we are having about the game: both from players (90% of positive votes on Steam), media (70 on Metacritic) … and festivals!

In fact, maybe you have noticed there are more laurel wreaths on our homepage now! A few months ago, the game got two more awards: Best Script and Game of the Year at the Granada Games Festival.

It’s a very special festival for us, since Dead Synchronicity was awarded with the Best Project Visuals last year.

And now, as always, some recommendations:

BULLSHOT

Our mates from Gato Salvaje, developers of the point and click adventures AR-K, just released some kind of spin off... in the shape of a run 'n gun game that tries to recover the essence of the 90s classics, such as Abuse, Contra or the Metal Slug sagas.

 It's on Steam Early Access now... and you can grab it for just 0,89€ until April 14th! So hurry up!

MABLE AND THE WOOD

Mable and the Wood is a beautiful pixel-art exploration game where you play a shape-shifting girl whose powers are destroying the world she is trying to save.

17 days left and less than 3,000£ to reach its goal!

As we always say, developing Dead Synchronicity: Tomorrow Comes Today side by side with you it’s been awesome: it’s been two years since the campaign ended, one year since the game was released… and without your support it simply couldn’t have been made.

In fact, we still have some news in store about Dead Synchronicity: Tomorrow Comes Today… so stay tuned!

Thanks so much for your amazing support once more.

Cheers,

Luis
