Paradigm is as traditional a point-and-click as I’ve played in a while, with a design, structure, and sense of humour that wouldn’t feel out of place in the genre’s heyday of the early ‘90s. Channelling the anything-goes spirit of LucasArts and Sierra’s comedy classics like Sam n’ Max Hit the Road and Space Quest with a touch of the truly surreal, it presents a fun story that I won’t soon forget. Because hey, a talking sloth named Olaf wearing a Trump-like toupee that vomits candy bars is inherently unforgettable. – Kosta Andreadis (IGN)
So if hanging out with handsome mutants like Paradigm sounds like your kind of thing, simply head on over to Steam and let the point-and-click adventure begin.
Shooting onto Steam in a blaze of bullets, locally-made zombie slaughter game Final Dayz is out now in early access. Created by +7 Software, this killer title was Greenlit early this year and proved popular at the recent Perth Games Festival. But more importantly, this upcoming title is killer training material for anyone planning to survive a zombie apocalypse – so be sure to check it out.
Final Days is a fast-paced and intense multi-player shooter set in a post-apocalyptic world. It attempts to blend retro arcade style with modern elements. The design goal is for the game to be quick and simple to play while providing an enjoyable challenge. Inspirations include titles such as Smash TV, Gauntlet, Killing Floor, and Left 4 Dead.
Wanda is a story-focused game but completely free of comprehensible dialogue. The entire story is told through the subtle interactions between the two robots and the environment itself in a “show, don’t tell” style.
Join this little adventure, solve mini-puzzles and witness the story unfold. Experience a whole new perspective of a post apocalyptic world through art-style reminiscent of a children’s book and delightful soundtracks.
