Paradigm and its demo brought the LucasArts adventure classics to mind immediately. It’s got its own strange world, set in a ’70s vision of the future with massive computers and chunky machinery the backdrop to a dystopian, mutated landscape. The titular main character is a genetic experiment gone wrong. Supposed to be the perfect child, he instead came out as “the ugliest protagonist in gaming.” Likely the mildest of the cast, he’s joined by a computer addicted to Internet chatrooms, a beatboxing egg plant and a drug-addled astronaut. It’s the wacky work of solo dev Jacob Janerka, who’s taken it to Kickstarter looking for $14,000 Australian (~£8,000).
