'Paper Cut Mansion' Announced - Screens & Trailer

Paper Cut Mansion is a procedurally generated roguelike horror game set in a cardboard universe full of surprises.

Paper Cut Mansion sees players lost and trapped in a mansion where everything is made of cardboard. And escaping won't be an easy task!

Trapped inside a paper prison, you'll need to solve riddles, tackle puzzles and battle the mansion's unusual inhabitants in a bid to unravel the secrets of how and why you're there - and, hopefully, escape with your life!

The hints to solve the riddles will be hidden inside the furniture of the mansion, but watch out! You don't know what else is lurking inside those cardboard models...

The stunning, handcrafted art style was achieved by creating real-life cardboard models and scanning them into 3D modelling software, bringing the developers' imaginations to life. For the team, it was important that the cardboard didn't lose its flawed qualities in the rendering process: it's the blemishes and defects that give Paper Cut Mansion its unique and unsettling atmosphere.

"My colleagues and I were in a transition phase after launching our previous game Dragon Bros for Xbox One, and during that time I was moving home and was surrounded by cardboard boxes. The emptiness of the new house, and being surrounded by cardboard boxes, made me think that being alone with them was one of the most terrifying things. It was like a maze. This is how we came up with the concept, the fear of the darkness of the unknown in a cardboardish atmosphere," says Space Lizard Studio's Gabriele Caruso.

An unusual take on the room escape genre, Paper Cut Mansion is already deep into production. However, Space Lizard Studio hope that a crowdfunding campaign - planned for later this year - will allow them to add more features and quality to the game, and release it in the not-too-distant future.

Paper Cut Mansion is in development for PC.
