Madrid, October 7th. – Sony Interactive Entertainment Spain (SIE Spain) and Open House Games are pleased to announce that A Tale of Paper, the winner of the V PlayStation®Talents Awards, will be released on October 21st. The game will be available digital-only and exclusively on PS4™ at the PlayStation Store for €14.99 / $14.99. A Tale of Paper is an emotional adventure of a paper-made boy who will use origami to fulfill his creator’s dream.
Can a dream transcend its owner? This is the question that Open House Games wanted to explore in A Tale of Paper. In a new trailer, players can further explore the world of A Tale of Paper, an adventure where Line can transform into multiple figures in order to avoid obstacles and enemies in this textless adventure that combines platforming sections with puzzle solving. Open House Games has released a new trailer to celebrate that the game is almost ready to hit the shelves.
“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.
Players can expect to play A Tale of Paper when this PS4™ exclusive releases later this year.
