Breathe Life Back Into Paradise

A murder investigation adventure that takes place in the open world

The tropical island of Paradise is set in a fully 3D open world with a vaporwave aesthetic. You will have to run and jump across buildings, hills, and other landmarks to look for clues, gather collectibles, and talk to suspects.

An amazing city pop soundtrack inspired by ’80s Japan

Inspired by the 1980s in Japan, Paradise Killer has an amazing city pop soundtrack composed by Barry “Epoch” Topping, which adds to the charm and life of the island and its inhabitants.

You decide who to accuse

In Paradise Killer, you will meet a variety of highly fashionable characters, each with their own personalities and motives. New evidence could turn old friends into new suspects. Take their testimonies and decide who is guilty.

One of the best reviewed games of 2020 in the world

Paradise Killer has received exceptional reviews from gaming media overseas such as IGN, GameSpot, and Destructoid with a Metacritic score of 82. The game was praised for its innovative gameplay, story, character design, and soundtrack. It was awarded Best Adventure Game of 2020 by PC Gamer, and is a Grand Prize finalist for the 2021 Independent Games Festival Awards.

Paradise Killer Summary

An island outside of reality. A rogue human civilization hoping to resurrect dead alien gods. A murder behind locked doors.

Paradise is an island that regenerates every few millennia. The psychic power that the alien worshippers within release into the universe is meant to feed and eventually resurrect their fallen deities. But this force also attracts undesired interest from demons, who eventually corrupt each island — until a new alternate reality is birthed by the Council.

The system isn’t perfect, but it will be one day — on Perfect 25, the next island-to-be. But on the eve of rebirth, the Council is murdered and Paradise is killed.

In the aftermath, the “investigation freak” Lady Love Dies is summoned from exile to find the culprit. This is the crime to end all crimes.

What are the facts? What are the truths? Are they the same?
