Papier is a game that takes place in a world of paper, sketches and ink. Where imagination and adventure are everything!
Papier is an adventure game based on the original tale by Matt McArdell. It takes place in a world made of paper! It will be available on desktop and mobile platforms, namely; Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Android mobile phones and tablets.
Papier is a boy who lives in a world of paper. After receiving a mysterious letter he discovers the legends of the Arcane Library and its books that cause everything to exist. Each person has a book that tells their life story and most of the pages from his book have been stolen. He sets out to find these pages before his powerful foe can destroy them, and page by page - he discovers his true destiny.
On this quest, Papier will discover places of wonder that he couldn't have imagined and encounter people and creatures who become a part of his story, as he becomes a part of theirs. That is, if he can triumph over the dark forces intent on preventing him.
The game immerses you and Papier into a world made of paper that combines the latest of game technology with the aesthetic of hand drawn surfaces. The outdoor scene at the end of the project video demonstrates the unique look and feel of the game world.
While Papier's powers will be essential to success in this world, it is the choices you make that will have far reaching consequences for Papier, the characters he meets, and the unfolding of the world of paper.
NOTE: The video below is a simple demonstration of the Papier game engine "look and feel" while moving around a 3D environment. This is not a level from the game and doesn't contained the features discussed elsewhere for this project.
