Paradise Lost: First Contact  



Paradise Lost: First Contact now on Kickstarter


10:00 AM on 11.03.2013



Last week we got our first look at the stylish stealth game Paradise Lost: First Contact. It was up on Steam Greenlight as a concept, with a Kickstarter campaign planned for the near future. That future is here: the campaign has officially begun and is off to a good start, making nearly a quarter of its $70,000 goal in its first two days.

The stretch goals for Paradise Lost are fairly standard, with Sony platforms to be added should the funding level top $200,000 and a Wii U version made available at $250,000. More interesting are the bonus chapters set to tell the backstory of the extraterrestrial protagonist plant and one of the ancillary characters.

Lastly, the title has moved on Greenlight from concepts to the main game section. If you put in a vote on its old page, you may have to hit the new one.

Paradise Lost shows off plant-based 2D stealth action

Stealth action just seems to work better in 2D than in 3D. Games like Gunpoint, Mark of the Ninja, and Stealth Bastard are testaments to that. Perhaps Paradise Lost: First Contact will be another title to add to that list in...more
