Another Tomorrow

Atmospheric point-and-click puzzle adventure Another Tomorrow forces you to put on your thinking cap as you navigate various dioramas to uncover the truth. While the single-player title is supposedly "a story of love and loss", you'll no doubt discover more than that as you go deeper into the narrative.

In particular, you'll take photos to solve puzzles via first-person exploration, as you try to find your bearings after waking up to a reality where your memories have failed. You'll traverse abandoned apartments, mysterious underground facilities and more to find the answer to the ultimate question: who are you?
