CONTACT DETAILS

Jacob Janerka, is the core developer behind Paradigm. Point-and-click adventures were his genre of choice when growing up as a kid. Now that childhood dream is becoming a reality, finally creating his first creator owned breakthrough game “Paradigm”.  

 

Jacob has always loved Pixar Animation’s aesthetic appeal but craved for the studio to create something with a darker sense of humour; this want was one part of the birth for Paradigm; a vibrant and colourful world contrasting with mature themes, humour and bizzare characters. 

If you liked Monkey Island, Day of the Tentacle, Full Throttle, Fallout, Gattaca, Dystopian literature, the Mighty Boosh, Flight of the Concords , Paradigm will undoubtedly tickle your fancy.

STORY

Paradigm’s unfortunate life begins at DUPA genetics, a company who sells prodigy children to the rich and powerful who don’t want to leave their inheritance to their poor excuse for biological children. 

Something went wrong during Paradigm’s growing process and he was left horribly mutated. To save their reputation, DUPA dumped the hideous infant in a nearby post Neo-Soviet abandoned town, forcing him to fend for himself.

Paradigm didn’t let this get him down and found solace in music. He dreams of becoming the best electronic music artist the world has ever seen! Unfortunately his past is set to catch up with him and he must reluctantly step up as the world’s saviour. When really he just wants to finish his latest EP.

On his journey, Paradigm meets an array of strange characters. Some include: a psychopathic superhero, an evil sloth, a secretary knight , and a glam metal cult leader pug.
