Originally released in September 2020 for PC and Switch, Paradise Killer received overwhelmingly positive critical acclaim for its vibrant open-world, rich lore, striking vaporwave aesthetic, stellar soundtrack and unique non-linear gameplay.
An open-world murder mystery, Paradise Killer takes place on the sun-drenched, dream-like world of Paradise Island, where, on the eve of the island’s rebirth as Perfect 25, “investigation freak” Lady Love Dies has been summoned from exile to solve the crime to end all crimes; the sinister murder of the island’s council.
On an island full of bizarre characters, immortal worshippers of dead alien gods and dark conspiracies, how will you navigate the rich world of Paradise Killer to uncover the elusive truth?
