SIE Spain and Open House Games have announced that the winner of the V PlayStation Talent Awards, A Tale of Paper, will be released later this year as a digital exclusive for PS4. A more specific date has not been announced at this time. Check out the trailer down below and read a little bit about the game.
“A Tale of Paper‘s slow-paced and deep gameplay is what makes it special”, explains the Open House Games team. “We mix puzzles and platforming but we also throw in some suspense and bits and pieces of walking simulation in this mix. It is also worth noting that this is no 2D platformer. The camera scrolls laterally, but players can roam in its world in any direction”.
Instead of power-ups, Line will use origami to overcome every obstacle on its way, even some evil Roombas: “Line must combine all of its abilities to clear every stage. But be careful, because every shape only allows Line to perform one action. As a frog, Line can jump higher but it can’t walk or run. We wanted to transmit Line’s fragility (and his potential to overcome obstacles) through this idea, combined with clever level design and some relentless enemies called Roombas”, explains the Open House Games Team.
Help a fragile and endearing paper to fulfil the dream of his creator. Embark on an adventure of loss and hope through the eyes of Line, a paper boy who magically came to live. Assist him escape from inusual dangers and bring him the strength he will need to reach the end of his journey.
Use origami to overcome obstacles. Master Line’s origami transformations to reach new levels, solve light puzzles and complete platforming sequences.
