First Paradise is a CYOA/roguelike set in deep space. The game is presented as series of "sequences" set in a hard science­-fiction universe.

First Paradise is an ongoing project.

First Paradise: Sequence 1

While coasting along the silver skirt of a star system aboard the survey ship - Luz y Lluvia - you and your crew discover something extraordinary. This discovery serves as a catalyst for the brimming emotional turmoil to follow shortly thereafter. The ship's crew succumbs to bouts of depression and home-sickness, eventually they begin to deconstruct the value of artificial intelligence and their relationship with machines.

Trapped in-between their goal and the many worlds that represent home; First Paradise takes place hundreds of years from today. Its story told between distant planets by distant people. All seen through an ascii/unicode interface and volumes of interactive-text sequences. This is the story of a post-human's spiral towards catatonia in the vast emptiness of interstellar space.
