About the game
QuoteParadigm is a surreal adventure game set in the strange and post apocalyptic Eastern European country of Krusz.

Play as the handsome mutant, Paradigm, who's past comes back to haunt him in the form of a genetically engineered sloth that vomits candy.

Paradigm’s unfortunate life begins at DUPA genetics, a company who sells prodigy children to the rich and powerful who don’t want to leave their inheritance to their poor excuse for biological children.

  • Classic point and click adventure: Think Monkey Island, Day of the Tentacle, Space quest, Full Throttle.
  • Surreal 2D Graphics: Pixar meets Fallout
  • Post apocalyptic: The year is 2026, dial-up is back in fashion.
  • 70/80’s influences: Paradigm's world is what people from that era imagined it to be; large super computers, space age furniture and floppy disks that can save the world.
  • Mature content and dark humour: Help the local drug addict and have a hot date with a toaster.
  • Ugliest protagonist in gaming (maybe): Look at him, Jesus.
  • Evil sloth antagonist: Who is a genetically engineered living candy machine.
  • Glam metal cult: May your pants be tight and your excess be excessive.

I have to say, it's not often I feel I absolutely need to play a game. Paradigm seems to hit that nail firmly in for me as it looks absolutely bonkers. It's been reviewed by Steam users really well too, so I'm excited. Even the feature list makes me laugh about him being ugly, hah! Article taken from

It's bonkers enough to be a instabuy!

This is silly enough to be worth buying just on premise alone.

Looks like you need to take some mushrooms to truly understand it but sadly I have none available.

Looks sort of The Feeble Files meets Beavis and Butthead. And I love it. Great news

Ogórki (cucumbers), DUPA (arse), верь в капусту! (trust in cabbage!)… that game will be your reason to learn Slavic languages.

I've been helping test/prepare the Linux builds of this game. The developer gave me a key, but I ended up buying it myself because I enjoyed it so much
