About Paper Beast

About this game

NOTE: This game can only be used with the Oculus Quest/Quest 2 when the headset is connected to a VR compatible Windows PC via an Oculus Link compatible cable

An adventure and exploration game about wildlife in a dreamlike universe.

Somewhere in the abyssal depths of the internet, life has blossomed. You are the first human to set foot in this mysterious ecosystem. A strange force seems to weigh on its balance. Join forces with intriguing and endearing creatures to solve the puzzles of Paper Beast.

GAME EXPERIENCE

Explore a colorful and whimsical universe born from the imagination of Eric Chahi, creator of Another World.

  • Two game modes: the adventure and the sandbox, an immersive playground.
  • Explore a world populated by majestic and intelligent creatures. Grab them, help them: their behaviour adapts to your actions.
  • Control the environment. The gameplay is based on a unique physics engine. Divert rivers, melt the ice, withstand storms to solve puzzles… And fly away!
  • Experiment! In the sandbox, live an experience close to a god game. Terraform mountains, dig lakes, populate your ecosystem, unleash tornadoes. Have fun with the physics of the game.
  • An original soundtrack combining the Japanese punk rock of TsuShiMaMire and the ambient style of Roly Porter.

"Playing Paper Beast is very akin to kicking back, chilling out, and listening to a Pink Floyd album — you are left in a contemplative state of mind."

You ever hear the line "My dog ate my homework"? In this game, your dog is your homework. And it's got weird friends and puzzles to solve. Lots of fun!

I did not really liked it. Some ideas are good, visually is ok, but the interaction with the world and the puzzles are a little poor. I did'nt even finish the game, after 3 hours or so I was bored of it and uninstalled it.

When playing this game you really have to have an open mind. Your playing and thinking "What's going on?" When you jump in you try different things until it clicks. Then you get the flow of the game. Beware there is no help screens or instructions so you are much on your own to explore until you get that "Ah Ha" moment! You can get lost in the canyons and valleys but remember where they are and the paper creatures that you interact with. It's alot of fun but a very deep game.
