You are a Paramedium, the last line of defense between humanity and the dark spirits intent on mischief.This game features a strong and engaging narrative that goes from sassy to serious to funny and back. The core gameplay is very simple but very effective. My only complaint with the game is that it ended...and I wanted MORE!!

So it looks like I may be the only one but I actually didn't like this game. I had, I'm assuming, errors in the game that made it basically unplayable. I made a video about it here if you'd like to see what was happening to me.
Aw that was brutal to watch, but I'm glad you at least enjoyed the art! XD
The game is 'supposed' to be scaleable, but for some reason when in full screen, it puts the dialog box behind the characters. Its a weird Tyranobuilder glitch that will hopefully be addressed in next update. Though I am curious why it showed up correctly at that one instance with the ghost.. Will look into that.
Apologies for giving you a bad experience, but I appreciate you making the video. If you want to try again without fullscreen, I would invite you. Either way, I thank you for giving Paramedium a chance. (=

That is a weird glitch! I never would have thought to put it out of full screen. Hopefully it's an easy enough fix for you. I hate coming across bugs that are so simple but take forever to figure out.
I'll definitely try without it because all the comments were so good and I'm still curious about the story plot and make an update video of it. Thanks!
Updated my game play of this game! Worked a lot better and really enjoyed it :)
Woo! I'm so glad Paramedium worked for you this time! Since our Kickstarter for Faulty Apprentice got funded (still time if you want to support), hopefully we can make the next episode of Paramedium in Unity! =D
Thanks for giving Paramedium a second chance. Best of luck with your channel and game dev kitty! (=
I just played this despite having a weak stomach for horror (I scare too easily) but I couldn't resist after seeing this amazing art. Thankfully I didn't find it terrifying at all...? Game froze twice in separate playthroughs, had to close and restart from the last autosave point. Looking at some comments here, it looks like I'm not the only one. I highly enjoyed this and will definitely be checking out your patreon and other games, I hope to see a sequel or simply more content of these two! I particularly like Nina's design. :3 Thanks for making this game!
Hey Zessou! Thanks for playing and choosing to support us on Patreon! Much appreciated!!
Bummer to hear the game crashed on you. We are pushing the visual novel software pretty hard with the mini games, but we feel it adds so much to the game we are hesitant to remove them.. We are looking into exporting games to Unity to make them more stable. More info on that later though (=
Glad you liked the game and character designs! We look forward to making another Paramedium episode after Faulty Apprentice is complete. Cheers! =D
Did you use something like Tyranobuilder for the game...? I'm not sure if it's just a coincidence, but I played a demo of a different game which was made with this app/software and it crashed for me as well as messed up BGM tracks in-game. I wasn't the only one with that problem too and the devs are now considering looking at other tools instead of Tyrano. Again, not sure if it's merely coincidental though.
Also, this might seem like a random question, but would you ever consider making games and putting them on the Nintendo Switch...?
Yup, we are using Tyranobuilder. I guess thats good that it's not the only ones, but thats bad if the software is giving everyone trouble. We have to release the demo in Tyrano, but hopefully we can get full game released in more stable program.
Mobile platforms are next on priority list, but we could look into Nintendo Switch. Cheers!
I just played this and THIS IS GOOD!! I hope there are more of this series *and plz forgive me for pairing Lance and Nina :3
Hey thanks for playing! We definitely want to continue this series after we finish Faulty Apprentice. Glad you dig Paramedium! Maybe one day Lance and Nina will get together XD
This game looks promising.
This game was awesome! I wish this was a bigger game with a complete story, 'cause it was great!
Now I feel like I want to create a comic on this!
Hey thanks for playing! Glad you enjoyed Paramedium! Was for HalloweenJam2016 so we only had 6 weeks to create it, but was a lot of fun! Will probably start working on full game after we finish Faulty Apprentice, cheers!
Had fun playing game. I'm really curious about the story and the world of this game.

Hi; I like what I've played of the game, but during the "knife fight" after a few attacks the game seems to semi-freeze and I'm unable to click anything or progress; any idea what might need fixing? I'm on Windows 10 if that helps. Thanks in advance!
Unfortunately some people just get that error. There should be an auto save point right there to load progress. Sorry for the trouble and thanks for letting me know. Glad you enjoyed the game
Absolutly great game, only suggestion I have is that the characters talk more, I liked there talking style, would love to have the characters talk, instead of just text
Glad you enjoyed the game! Thanks for the feedback, we'll see how we approach voice overs in the future (hopefully we will have the budget for full voice over!! XD)
Glad to hear, great game though, I will upload what I have recorded at 15:00 PM EST Today, maybe you can see some bugs, that I missed?
This is where it will be uploaded https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCzBqDuapvTWdTk9qKAgzpMw
At first Great game i would love to see more of it.
Also if you could go for the story more in the supernatural-ish direction with the little romance thing
would like to see that :3
and sorry for my english grammar ^^"
Hey thanks! Happy you enjoyed Paramedium!
We look forward to doing more episodes in the future (=
If you geht the game on steam with a 10-15 hour story and in the best case animated scenes, i would pay a lot money for the game
20-30 bucks i guess vor even more :3
Glad to hear that! We are trying to get another game on Steam right now called, Faulty Apprentice. If you could give that a vote we would really appreciate it! (=
Faulty Apprentice on Steam Greenlight: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/...
Already did that :) i hope it comes to steam looking forward to it
Hey thanks for playing and making a video! Glad you enjoyed the game! Hopefully we can do more with this series in the future (= Cheers!
Sorting out ghosts and declining tea is just a normal day for a Cleric in Paramedium.
Hey! Nice relaxing play through Ed. Glad you enjoyed the game and are interested in more Paramedium! Working on a version where you can play as the guy (Lance). Should have it up Friday, cheers (=
Thanks for the game! Looking forward to playing Lance and seeing how that pans out. Keep up the good work!
Nice man! Was fun to watch you play. The original script for the ending convo between the Clerics was seriously just like what you were saying. I was busting up XD Maybe Lance will ask her out in the next mission (= Thanks for playing Step!
Hey! Thanks again for all the support. There are only 5 hours left to rate Paramedium in the HalloweenJam2016: https://itch.io/jam/halloween-jam-2016/rate/89061
This would be a HUGE win for my small indie-studio, so if you enjoyed the game please give us a positive rating (=
Did I play this? Hell yes I did. Love ya, Dinmoney, keep up the awesome work!
Hahahhahah hell yea dude!! Glad you enjoyed it! Thanks again for all the support Flog, really appreciate it (=
I'm really loving this so much. The art style is great and the little mini games are a lot of fun. The game crashed twice for me though, it got caught in some sort of endless load loop between seraching the rooms of the house and the attic scene, and also did the same when [spoiler] during the following knife sequence, when a dialogue tree repeated during the first firing of the mini game and then endlessly looped.
Hey thanks Kara! Very sorry about the trouble, but I appreciate yo letting me know. Trying to find the cause of that issue.. Hopefully can get it fixed and a new version up by this weekend. Thanks again for playing Paramedium, glad you enjoyed it overall! (=
I got so scared >-<
Glad to hear it! Thanks for playing Amara (=
I think the title alone encompasses how I felt about this game :D Good stuff as usual!
Hahaha cheers Owlhead!! Glad we got you into that Halloween spirit! Thanks for making the video! (=
This is a really cool and well made little visual novel. The art style is great, the story is cool and fits well with the world its created in. I love horror and futuristic style games. Combine that with a small horror element and a cute anime girl and I'm totally in. I did run into a small bug where I got to a part that repeated the dialogue but other than that I am rather impressed with this game. I hope to see more from this series and explore more of the world created that the player only gets a small glimpse at. I feel the universe created could make a cool series of visual novels. All in all a cool short indie VN with potential with an expanded universe that I look forward to seeing more about. I did a video on my experience with the game if anyone is interested.SHE'S TOTALLY JUST A SWEET OLD LADY | Paramedium
Hey thanks for the awesome video!! Will get that bug sorted out asap! Glad you dig the game (
Hello, I thought this was a great and scary game, is there going to be more, I would love to see more like this, if this is not on the gamejolt.com website I recommend it. 5/5.
Hey Fellow! Glad you enjoyed the game!! Will be jumping back into Faulty Apprentice development, but are open to do more with Paramedium series in the future. Had a lot of fun making it, cheers! (=
Hello, yes I remember your work with faulty apprentice but did not hear anything about that yet for me to continue videos. Yes I am open to more of Paramedium and of course any others you develop.
Yea! Faulty Apprentice had a HUGE update, check it out when you can! Tons new awesome stuff added, just skip the prologue if you want, that's pretty much same as the beta you played. Cheers Fellow! (=
