Today we bring you the analysis of the otome game Paradigm Paradoxwhich came out a year and a half ago in Japan and has finally reached us for Nintendo Switch thanks to Aksys Games. This game proposes a unique concept: normal boys… who transform into magical girls?! In the post-apocalyptic world in which the game takes place, will our protagonist be able to find love while she discovers that she too has powers?
Students by day, magical girls when needed
Takanashi Yuuki, our protagonist, lives in a post-apocalyptic world where human beings live in colonies, adapted for survival. He lives a quiet life: he spends his days going to class, gossiping with his best friend, and coming home before curfew. However, one day she will not comply with this last rule and a Vermin, a monster, will attack her. Four girls will come to her rescue and she will end up joining her cause. A) Yes, Will Yuuki be able to fall in love, fight the Vermin, and find out who the real enemy is?
This otome game allows us to live the romance from eight different routesalthough the game has a last route as a final conclusion. Of course, not all the routes are accessible from the beginning: to be able to access the route of some characters, we must get the good ending of other boys previously. Each route has a good ending, one normal, one tragic and between two and four bad (depends on each character). In addition, the history of each one is divided into four main chapters, which are divided into several subchapters.
Who are the heroes and who are the villains?
Paradigm Paradox It has several functions that will help us when we play, such as a Diagram that will allow us to see which sections we have already unlocked, a romance rise indicator and the option to be able to skip the text until the next choice or text that we have not read (something that will be of great help when we have already played several routes).
The art of this game is provided by Natsuo and directed by Seki Mao. In addition, the script is signed Yuzukiwho has also worked on Virche Evermore -ErroR:Salvation-, one of Aksys Games’ new bets for 2023.
