Hi, Fellow Boomers,
I see that the game,"Yesterday", came out today, and I would love to play it.My concern is that without a working demo of the game, I won't know if it will "work" on my computer. $30.00 is a pretty steep price for a game, but I WOULD purchase it if a DEMO worked well on my computer.Does anyone know if a demo of this game is planned? Thanks
Sandy

Sandy,

Why don't you tell us what computer you have or what version of Windows you're running? If someone else has the same thing and they're playing Yesterday, they could tell you if it works or not.

Hi, Traveler,
I have a Dell PC with Win XP SP3, 3.5 gigs of Ram An ATI-Radion Video card-Radion X600 Series.I think that I've given you the specs that are the most important. Thanks, and I will keep checking back to see if anybody has experienced playing the game who's computers have the approximate specs. I really think that the game developer should come out with a demo, as I have said before. If the demo would work on my PC, that would be the ultimate test. Thanks so much for your input.
Sandy
BTW, I played the two previous Pendulo adventure games on this same PC without having ANY problems whatsoever, so perhaps I'm being over concerned.

OK, Traveler,
I "bit the bullet", purchased the game from The Adventure Shop,downloaded it,installed it without any problems at all. I started the game, installed the included PATCH, and it's running incredibly well on my PC. I hope it goes as easily for anybody else contemplating buying this game as it was for me.I'm enjoying it already, ESPECIALLY since I have MAG'S superb (as always)walkthrough to follow.
Sandy
HAPPY GAMING, Fellow Boomers

Any news on the disk version yet? Does it come out later than the download version?

Thanks, Ana. sad Do you think it's worth waiting to find out if there will be one, or do you recommend just purchasing the download version? I really hope it's the former, as I don't prefer downloading games unless they are DRM free.

I think it's coming but when Is the big question. If you don't mind waiting then I would say you will probably find a boxed copy.

No comments on how short this game is? It seemed remarkably short to me:-)

Yes, I found a review for it here - Yesterday Review . The review was positive, but a lot of the comments mentioned how short the game was. Also, apparently there is no voice acting for inventory/item descriptions. These two things are a shame, especially the shortness factor.

Oh, well, I still want it, albeit with lowered expectations. The story looks interesting, and I loved the Runaways enough to play pretty much anything Pendulo Studios puts out. Plus, the review was very positive, so that's a good sign. smile

There are a lot of games that don't have voice acting for inventory items, LHOD coming to mind right away. I never felt cheated so I don't get the problem.

I'm with you all the way there, venus. The only problem is that Yesterday is way to expensive for me if the game is that short. So I guess I'll wait until it's old enough to be on GOG. grin
