About this game

Developer: Lucas Pope
Content Rating: Mature


The communist state of Arstotzka has just ended a 6-year war with neighboring Kolechia and reclaimed its rightful half of the border town, Grestin. In the dystopian document thriller Papers, Please, your job as an immigration inspector is to control the flow of people entering the Arstotzkan side of Grestin from Kolechia. Among the throngs of immigrants and visitors looking for work are hidden smugglers, spies, and terrorists. Using only the documents provided by travelers and MoA's primitive computer dispatch system you must decide who can enter Arstotzka and who will be turned away or arrested.

Papers, Please may not be what you'd typically describe as a fun video game, but it's an incredibly clever experiment in storytelling that succeeds in what it sets out to do in ways you won't expect.

Papers, Please really shouldn’t work as well as it does, given it’s mostly a lot of busy work, but it’s gripping stuff. A plentiful supply of different endings, as well as an Endless Mode, means it’s great value for money, too.

All in all Papers, Please has surprising depth and is definitely worth your time. For a game that looks and feels oppressive it has a way of drawing you in, its unique approach and art style is its saving grace, the bland style and SNES era graphics apply well to the feeling of old fashioned oppression. It’s a game that will frustrate you, but will challenge you like you haven’t been challenged in a while. At its cheap Steam price you should pick it up as soon as you can.
