Paratopic is an enigmatic, haunting little game

March 15, 2018 1 min read

Paratopic sticks with you. It's the kind of game that lingers, haunting the dark corners of your mind after its credits roll. There's something off about it in a delightful way; the atmospheric fever dream of low-poly horror imagery shows, but never tells.

It doesn't take long to complete Paratopic. It's easily finished in a single sitting, running between forty-five minutes to an hour, depending on your desire to soak up every detail of its world. At times it seems like an homage to Thirty Flights of Loving distilled through the lens of Silent Hill. Paratopic moves from one scene to another quickly, obliquely jumping around in its narrative as if to confuse and disarm, while its ominous and synthy soundtrack pushes you forward. Don't expect to understand everything you see; there's mystery at its center.
