Finding Paradise review
Exceptional
by Anton

Where To The Moon was warm and fuzzy, Finding Paradise had no mercy. Be prepared for all your hopes to be crushed, and all assumptions turn out to be wrong.

The gameplay was upgraded a bit since the first game. There are more puzzles and mechanics this time around. Also the actual story is more evenly paced in Finding Paradise. The main characters' backstory is also much more pronounced in the sequel.

I feel like writing anything else will just spoil this gem of a game, but I'll say thins. While To The Moon made me cry out of happiness, Finding Paradise made me empathise with a character more than any game released in 2017 (except for, maybe, Rakuen).

Definitely recommend if you're into games that will tear your soul apart with sadness and then piece it back together in the end.

Can't wait for part 3 of this amazing story.

This Game is a Masterpiece and just as good as its Predecessors! It captivated me from the Beginning through its beautiful, later also exciting Story. The Music is very emotional and super attuned to the Action. Clear Buy recommendation for Fan's Of Predecessors or Players who stand on good Storytelling.

All I can say is that this Game is just Fantastic. It has something of Comedy, partly Horror (but no Jump-scares, just Gloomy mood), it's very Sad towards the End and it has quite a lot of "Easter eggs" like E.g. Allusions to Dragonball, Tekken, Pokemon and a few more. You also have partly the opportunity to intervene in the Action and maybe change the Story, but I have to try this out again yourself

After To the Moon And the short Interlude A Bird's Story with Finding Paradise, Freebird Games has created another Work that once again has a truly beautiful Balance between Wit and Sadness. But The Pendulum strikes out a lot. In the funny Moments with many Allusions to various Topics I had to laugh out loud, which is quite rare in Games. I would like to emphasise The German Translation in praise. In the sad Moments, the Eyes were very damp. Not innocent is the wonderful Soundtrack, which, as in To the Moon, beautifully stages the Experiences in The Game. I hope Freedbird Games will develop a third Episode in the next Few years.

Normally, Games don't make me cry, but after "To the Moon" And "Life is Strange," "Findung Paradise" is now the third Game that has moved me to Tears-and this is certainly one of the best Compliments you can give to a game like this. I thought "To the Moon" would be beautiful, but Freebird Games managed to top his First Work again. Even though the Predecessor had in some Ways the greater Drama and more unpredictable Twists (when I think of River's mental State Or the surprising Resolution of early Childhood experiences), "Finding Paradise" touched me a Touch more,. I think Colin's Story is a little more vivid and therefore more comprehensible. Especially People who were more Introverted Outsiders in childhood, who moved a lot in a Fantasy world (and I count myself among that), find an Identification Figure here. By the way, the Knowledge of the first Part is not necessary, except for a few subtle hints there was little alluding. But I Suspect that there is more substantive Overlap on "A Bird Story" and the two Mini-episodes after all. So I will get hold of them now and look in.
