Finding Paradise, an adventure game, was developed as well as published by Freebird Games. It serves as a sequel to A Bird Story and To the Moon.
Development and Release
Finding Paradise was fully composed, written and designed by Kan Gao (an independent game designer from Canada) using the RMXP game engine. The game’s development started in 2015. On 14 Dec 2017, it was released for Linux, macOS and Microsoft Windows.
Finding Paradise’s Gameplay
The gameplay is same as that of To the Moon, which is the first video game in the series and was built on the RMXP engine.
Like the preceding game, Finding Paradise functions same as a typical role-playing game, but without a party system, battle system nor an inventory system. That is because the game’s focus is more of a story-driven game.
Most of the gameplay is revolving around Colin memory puzzle solving. That is done through interpreting information as well as experiencing his feelings and emotions, then finding ways of getting deeper into his memories and find out the truth about his wish.
Same as To the Moon, Finding Paradise centres around exploring the memories of Colin. That is to look for significant objects and get energy from them for strengthening the memory and connecting to another one that is more distant, from his childhood to the present day. Occasionally, the players will stop using the machine and start exploring his house plus the surrounding area for clues.
Plot of the Game
Employees of Sigmund Corp, Dr Neil Watts and Dr Eva Rosalene, are again tasked with fulfilling the dying Colin Reeds’ lifelong dream.
The doctors insert in an interactive compilation of Reeds’ memories. They traverse backwards through Reed’s life via mementoes to fulfil a wish that appears to be rather paradoxical: changing something, yet changing nothing at all.
While they are still traversing through his memories, Dr Watts and Dr Rosalene find out that even though at first, they travelled back in time normally, they soon started hopping back and forth between new age and old age.
Dr Rosalene speculates that the leap between memories follows a decaying orbit’s pattern around a “gravitational centre” at around his middle life.
