In Search of Paradise
Few games have a more cryptic or intriguing premise than Henrik Hermans’ In Search of Paradise. Made in 16 days for the Idle Thumbs Wizard Jam 2016, it’s an open-world driving adventure. You start off on empty road in an unnamed desert landscape with the late afternoon sun beaming down at you. “Far from the metropolises of the modern world, to one of the lesser-visited stretches of the American interstate system, a traveller has arrived, in search of Paradise”, it cheerfully explains.
