Interviewer’s note: This interview has been lightly edited for clarity. Paradise Killer is an upcoming open-world murder mystery game.

However, finding the truth won’t be that simple. You see, Gemea is plagued by a mysterious fog of sorts called Murk, which can only be cleared up by creatures called Sprites. A larger plague of Murk plagues the Old Kingdom,…

After all, it’s not every day that you come across a self-proclaimed mix of Monkey Island, The Legend of Zelda, Twin Peaks, and Spongebob Squarepants with an eggplant FBI agent protagonist. It’s a combination of franchises that you wouldn’t ever expect to see referenced in such a manner and I was…
