Sliding onto Steam earlier this month, the locally-made Paradigm is pulling in rave reviews thanks to its unique humour and phat beatsies. Created by Jacob Janerka after a successful Kickstarter, the high praise heaped upon it so far includes a 9/10 from Destructoid, 9/10 from Press Start, and an 8/10 from IGN.
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.

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.
