Paradigm is a game full of creativity, love and humour, which never fails at drawing a smile on your face. It may suffer from a mediocre adventure gameplay with either too easy or too vaguely explained puzzles and an enjoyable yet disappointing second half. However there was never a point I was bored of Paradigm and when the credits rolled over my screen my thirst to see more of this world was gigantic. All in all Paradigm offers an okay-ish adventure gameplay but a journey no one with a sense for dark humour should miss, a must-buy.

A surprisingly deep, emotionally engaging tale for a game that lets you fornicate with a toaster.

In a time lacking fully fledged point and click adventure games or games with truly great humour, Paradigm stands out like a talking tumour on your head. In short, its brilliant. There is plenty more I'd love to say, but I'd probably just end up spoiling some great moments for you. So just go enjoy it for yourself.

Paradigm succeeds in being a genuinely funny and entertaining point-and-click adventure game. What it may lack in innovation, it more than makes up for with its consistently engaging story, its distinctive and unique world, and its diverse and eclectic cast of characters. Admittedly, its offbeat sense of humour may not be up to everyone's standards, but if you're the type of person who enjoys cynical and referential gags, as well as a heavy dose of Mighty Boosh-esque surrealism, Paradigm is well worth the price of admission.

Paradigm is a charming surrealistic adventure game set in a post-apocalyptic universe that is sure to satisfy old-school adventure game fans.

Funny and fresh from beginning to end, Paradigm is a traditional point-and-click adventure game full of heart and decapitated heads in jars. The Eastern European setting, great voice acting, and confident comedy shine throughout its roughly six hours. Relatively simple puzzles aside, Paradigm offers a fresh and memorable entry in a genre that I'm happy to see alive and well in 2017.
