New Preview Video added February 17, 2014. Game release has been pushed back to March 2014.

The Samaritan Paradox, from indie developer Petter Ljungqvist, is set in Sweden in the ’80s. Ord Salamon has agreed to help Sara Bergwall find the book her father, Jonatan Bergwall, wrote before he died.

During the course of this treasure hunt, Ord learns that Jonatan was investigating the weapons industry — or more specifically, some covert affairs with foreign dictatorships.

But more questions arise. What is the book about, and why does Sara want Ord to find it for her? Did her Alzheimer’s-stricken mother know the secret before she grew too demented to share it? And how did Jonatan actually die?

The Samaritan Paradox has been successfully funded through Indiegogo and will be released on PC.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
