Paradox Shift is a first person puzzle action game from a group of over 30 students from the University of Southern California and Laguna College of Art and Design.

As Inspector Carmen Medina from the Department of Time, you must evaluate the use of time travel in the creation of the Grand Canyon Dam. Unravel the conspiracy behind the dam's construction and race to prevent its collapse.

Use only a Time Transport Tool (T3) to instantly shift yourself and tagged objects back and forth between two time periods as you traverse levels and solve puzzles. With no traditional weapons at your disposal, evade and distract enemies across time as you stop them from destroying the dam.

Future updates on Paradox Shift are available at, and if you have any questions about the project, please email
