A textless adventure that combines platforming with puzzle solving…

Sony Interactive Entertainment Spain (SIE Spain) and Open House Games have just revealed the new trailer for A Tale of Paper, the winner of the V PlayStation Talents Awards. The game, which is described as an emotional adventure of a paperboy who uses origami to fulfill the dream of his creator— will be released digital-only and exclusively on PS4 later this year.  

The new trailer shows how players can further explore the world by taking control of Line (the paperboy) who can transform into multiple figures in order to avoid obstacles and enemies.

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.

Synopsis

Help a fragile and endearing paper to fulfill the dream of his creator. Embark on an adventure of loss and hope through the eyes of Line, a paperboy who magically came to live. Assist him to escape from unusual dangers and bring him the strength he will need to reach the end of his journey.
