E19 Paradise Killer

E19 Paradise Killer

Finally out of exile, Ben and Tao visit the resort of island 24 for a spot of light holiday crime solving in the surrealist fantasy mystery puzzler, Paradise Killer. Cocktails in hand and against a backdrop of sexy synths and sunsets, the duo talk kinks and dating sims, Vimto and Diogenes, and when it’s simply not cool to accuse your friends.

Major story spoilers, primarily towards the end.

Content Warning: PEGI 12. Moderate randiness, a bit of light swearing, sweet ass tunes.
