Paradigm is a point-'n'-click game starring sloths and mutants

While adventure games are doing as well as ever, there's still not too many that hark back to the classic era games like Day of the Tentacle. They used to be really weird!

Jacob Janerka's Paradigm seems to emulate that style well. It's set in the strange, post-apocalyptic world of Kruzs, home to our hero Paradigm and all manner of odd inhabitants. Poor Paradigm is the unfortunate offspring of some dodgy genetic tinkering and now finds himself running a computer repair store on some backwater planet, but he still has dreams of becoming a top electronic musician.

Paradigm seems to have the right sort of offbeat weirdness that I like in my adventure games and Janerka is launching a Kickstarter soon to make the game a reality.

Kentucky Route Zero is half off (and you should buy it)

Kentucky Route Zero fought hard in a number of categories in our 2013 game of the year awards despite only the first two of five episodes having been released. It is very good. Even if Act IV isn't out yet. You can get the season pass (Acts I-III now, IV and V whenever they come out) on Steam for $12.50 at the moment, half of the usual $25 asking price. Well worth it. more

Console owners should keep an eye on Nova-111

Funktronic Labs' cool turn-based/real-time hybrid adventure game Nova-111 was originally slated for PC/Mac/Linux first, followed by consoles at a later date, but that's no longer the case. The studio is partnering with Curve ...more
