In the halls of a distant Ice Palace, shrouded in legend and myth, roams a long forgotten sorceress, Nimue, whose talents in dark magic are matched only by the malice in her heart. For centuries she has been plotting and scheming, lying in wait until the time when she could bring the world to its knees under darkness and ruin. That time has come and the Water Witch will reign!

In Paradise Lost, you will play a legendary Hero. Take on the role of Alice, Aladdin, Beowulf, Billy Goat Gruff, Hercules, Merlin, Perseus, or Red Riding Hood. The Water Witch has ripped you from the pages of your own story, bringing you and the others to life in order to fight an evil Villain of her choosing and possibly your personal nemesis; the Jabberwocky, the Warlock, Grendel, Troll, the 9-headed Hydra, Sir Mordred, Medusa, or the Big Bad Wolf.

The Water Witch is certain that if the great Heroes of fables and lore perish, it will change reality and the world will succumb to despair!

You and your fellow Heroes must travel the realms of the Water Witch; deduce whom she has summoned as her champion Villain and the weapon needed to defeat them, all the while preparing for the fight to come.  Along the way you will speak to Oracles, learn secrets from the Truthseekers, recite ancient scrolls, seek the Villain’s hideout, and much, much more. Tread carefully, the journey will be perilous and it is possible to enrage the Water Witch even further! 

Aladdin, Alice, Red Riding Hood, and Merlin travel the Trail of Mystics.

Paradise Lost is a fantastical deduction game for 2-5 players where you can’t win just by having the most complete information.  Deduction combined with worker placement, resource management, and point-to-point movement makes for a truly unique game play experience.  

                        Sometimes it takes an imaginary world to save the real one.

  • Multiple paths to victory.
  • A fantasy style "Who dun it" game.
  • Different victory conditions every time you play. Tons of different strategies available as there are 3,125 unique game conditions.
  • Social interaction at every turn where you can’t win by just deducing the hidden information...
  • Families love it, seasoned gamers love it, players new to gaming love it!
  • You can play in Competitive, Co-op Competitive (teams), or Semi-Competitive modes! 

In Paradise Lost, your Heroes are taking a journey along the Trail of Mystics through the five Realms to seek the Villain’s Hideout and to ultimately defeat Nimue, the Water Witch. The players drive the deduction narrative, and the differences among the roles create unparalleled interaction and replayability.  

Green Feet Games invites you and your family to explore the fantastic world of Paradise Lost

Note: The rulebook is presented in draft form. While we don’t anticipate any changes to the game rules, we’re still tweaking the layout, adding more visual aids, and cleaning up odds & ends.

Risks and challenges

Unforeseen events can and do happen. We've taken all the necessary steps to eliminate our blind spots, and we've already produced a nearly final prototype of the game. We've fulfilled two projects successfully on Kickstarter and have reason to believe we'll continue making and delivering great games.
