Description

The Golden Age of heroes is over, but you're just beginning. Will you use your powers to help the world or help yourself? Set on a near-future Earth that has been irrevocably altered by the arrival of superhumans, the world has been dealing with a radical shift in the nature of humanity. For thirty years, those with world-altering powers - referred to as capes - have been at the forefront of the world's media. There has been heroes, there has been villains, and there has been world-shattering confrontations when those two groups came into contact. For a time, those individuals walked the world like modern deities. For a time, it was good.

But things change. Given time, all things resolve to entropy.

The Golden Age is over. The player, a member of the newest graduating class of an international academy for powered individuals, needs to find their place in this new world, and whether that place will be determined by their own hand - or by the machinations of others. Assigned to the troubled Paradigm City, it'll be up to the player to determine whether their name becomes a byword for fame or infamy, idealism or pragmatism, and loyalty or ambition.

"Paradigm City" is a 110,000 word interactive fantasy novel by James Rhoden, where your choices control the story. It's entirely text-based—without graphics or sound effects—and fueled by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.

Unexpected surprise

With the quality of latest hosted games I didn't have much hope for this one but it surprised me. It was well written and the story was pretty good. I actually enjoyed it very much. Doesn't have a very high replay value however it is lengthy and well executed. Worth every penny. I don't think there'll be a sequel but I would love to see one

Worth a play

Entertaining and I enjoyed the idea behind it but there's no replay value. It doesn't seem like my choices really mattered, the ending left me unfulfilled, and I had many unanswered questions at the end. Hoping for a better sequel, as I would definitely play it. Like I said, worth a play for something to do but don't expect anything superb.
