By Marty Mulrooney

Finding Paradise

Finding Paradise is an indie adventure RPG created by hugely talented game designer Kan Gao and his development studio Freebird Games.

Finding Paradise arrives with the weight of expectation upon its shoulders then; but can it step out of the shadow of its beloved predecessor?

Its release marks the end of an epic journey that began with the original free (low-res retro) version in 2010 (“there is artistry amidst its pixels, beauty within the world portrayed”), continuing with The Journey Down: Chapter One in 2012 (“any self-respecting adventure gamer owes it to themselves to experience this game”) and The Journey Down: Chapter Two in 2014 (“an indie endeavour that successfully captures the soul and spirit of the 90s adventure game”).
