After waiting for more than 2 years for this, I played "Finding Paradise" minutes after it was released and completed it in one go. Roughly about 6 hours.
If you've played "To The Moon", you will feel right at home as "Finding Paradise" is in many ways the same as the first game in the series. That is not to say this is a criticism.
So we have another dying patient that has a wish which the two doctors Neil and Eva will try to fulfill. These two make a great comic duo yet again and their jokes will make you laugh. There are some references to "To The Moon" and some other winks towards pop-culture. I did find it interesting that during one scene, Kan even reflects through the characters on how mixed of a reception "A Bird's Story" had (I loved it, btw).
For some, the interface, graphics and limited 'gameplay' will be a minus, but we all know that it is the story that makes "Finding Paradise" a real gem. And this one will stay with you as well. While we explored more of a 'love' theme in "To The Moon", "Finding Paradise" touches more on regrets, loneliness and growing up. And yes... someone will be cutting onions again towards the end. Even though I guessed it this time, I am still going to say it didn't disappoint.
The soundtrack is where the game shines as well. It's a masterpiece by itself and I will listen to it once it is released. Just to give you an idea how great it is - I deliberately stayed longer in some rooms, just so I can enjoy the music. And we will have some cameos from "A Bird's Story" and "Quintessence".
So... grab some tissues, switch off your phone and just enjoy playing it. You will not REGRET this.
Thanks, Kan.… Expand
