The Samaritan Paradox is a consciously retro-aesthetic point-and-click adventure game set in Sweden during the early 1980s. The protagonist, Ord Salomon, is a frustrated PhD student engaged in finding cryptograms, and then solving them. One of such chance find puts him on a treasure hunt for the inheritance of the late Jonatan Bergwall, an author who had recently committed suicide. Is there more to Bergwall's death than the official explanation entails? Is his last manuscript of a novel somewhere hidden, and what codes and secrets does it conceal?

Gameplay in The Samaritan Paradox harkens to the classics of adventure gaming, and includes traditional inventory puzzles together with leisurely timed sections and logic puzzles, all integrated to the realistic storyline and depiction of the early 1980s Gothenburg. The game features voice acting and music.
