Vector Graphics

Paradox Vector imagines if vector graphics were still popular when the first-person shooter genre got started. The old-school shooters like Doom, Quake and Wolfenstein 3D arrived well after vector graphics had been all but forgotten. In this open-world game, you can see a different kind of retro shooter, one that never actually existed.

Inspired by arcade games from the early 1980s like Tailgunner, Battlezone, and even the original Star Wars game, Paradox Vector takes this abandoned style, and brings it up to date.


Impossible Geometry

The impossible art of M.C. Escher had a big influence on Paradox Vector. This is not a puzzle game, but an action game set in a puzzling environment. Hallways appear to go one way but actually go another, enemies may attack from angles you might not expect, and navigating the levels may require you to think outside of the box.

Don't think it's going to be easy though! The ancient alien stronghold you are exploring is not abandoned. Robotic guards, Squid-Spiders and Flying Jellyfish will make your life a living hell if you are not careful!

Open World

Paradox Vector does not limit players to a simple series of levels, but allows you to explore an open environment, retracing steps as needed. Some weapons and items will allow you to unlock secrets and upgrades, thus rewarding those who are curious and persistent. Don't let the minimalistic graphics fool you, there is a lot to be discovered in this puzzling and challenging adventure.

Early Access

At this time, Paradox Vector is in an unfinished state. We are looking for players who want to try something new, and offer their feedback as well. If you are looking for a seamless and polished game, please wait until the full release.

Incredible game. Found via Buried Treasures and I couldn't help but break my attempt to not buy any new games until I've finished most of what I've purchased. LOL. Really loved this in every single aspect.

Early Access release imminent.  I plan to upload the latest build of the game later today...

hey, it actually reminds me of 2 timesplitters maps I made, this one with lots of impossible geometry : 

and this one : 
yeah, quality is poor, but maybe it still gives you ideas.

Cool!  I want to do an infinite level like that, I have a lot of ideas bubbling...

Okay, I actually loved this game! I think it's very fun and enjoyable, and as I said in the video, it reminds of Antichamber with guns and Daleks! Keep in mind that I recorded this about two weeks ago, but I will definitely be playing the updates myself as they come out! Gameplay from 12:23 to 19:00 (I believe I finished all of it in that time)

Thanks for the review!
