    Paradise Killer is now the perfect murder mystery. With some visual and performance issues taken care of and the addition of new secrets to uncover as well as some gorgeous Ray Tracing, there’s never been a better time to breathe life back into paradise.

    Say goodbye to dark, dreary mysteries. Paradise Killer is an incredibly stylish, open-world detective game that lets you feel like an otherworldly super-sleuth. [Issue#13, p.92]

    A beautiful abomination that almost breaks under the weight of its thick but ultimately compelling worldbuilding, Paradise Killer is a stupendous detective yarn that reimagines the genre in bright sun-kissed colours with a cast of truly bizarre characters all living in a world that feels like a microcosm of sci-fi storytelling for the last thirty years. Exceptionally constructed, boundlessly enjoyable and fiendishly stylish, Paradise Killer is your new favourite detective game.

    Ambling around a cursed utopia and interrogating its eccentric characters while listening to jazzy, saxophone-obsessed electronica remains a fitting masquerade for a mercurial murder mystery. Almost two years after its first release, Paradise Killer’s commitment to its vaporwave aesthetic remains a model for creative fiction and an amusement park for industrious detectives.

    Paradise Killer will gradually win you over. Part of its smart design is letting you begin the endgame trial, where you'll make your final accusations, whenever you like, giving you complete control over the outcome. When you're satisfied you know what happened, you can start proceedings and present your case — there is no single correct answer. Combined with a great, low-tech aesthetic and an excellent soundtrack, and this is a game with both style and substance.

    No sentido inovação, com certeza é muito diferente e ousado, mas não acho que pra um jogo ser bom basta sair fazendo tudo o que não é comum.No sentido inovação, com certeza é muito diferente e ousado, mas não acho que pra um jogo ser bom basta sair fazendo tudo o que não é comum. Acho uma boa obra, mas muito superestimada. Full Review »
