'My Beautiful Paper Smile' Gets Free Standalone Prologue Night In Riverager - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on Jan. 27, 2021 @ 7:00 a.m. PST

My Beautiful Paper Smile is a story-driven psychological horror game set in a supernatural dystopian universe.

Head to the depths of secret facilities, flee through dense forests, and explore a world they don’t want you to know in this all-new story-driven horror game. Set across four story chapters, My Beautiful Paper Smile is lovingly handcrafted, from the art style to the story and level design. 

My Beautiful Paper Smile follows one of the Joyous, forever-smiling, masked children raised knowing nothing but the struggle to become Perfect. They strive to survive within the research facility they live in, under the scrutiny of the Authorities and where failure means being led away to a “session”, never to be seen again.

Among countless barred passages, omni-present watchers, and countless smiles, hope comes from a voice beyond. It speaks to one of the Joyous and leads them on a quest through the darkest, most haunted parts of the facility and beyond, to unveil the strange nature of the world. That is, if they can make it out alive.

V Publishing and Two Star Games are proud to unveil a chilling playable prologue to My Beautiful Paper Smile.

Night In Riverager is a free, standalone horror short; the story of a masked hunter in a dark, monochrome world and setting the stage for things to come. Things are stirring in the shadows, but tonight you must travel across the river and into the King’s domain. What part will you play in the story unfolding around you?

Designed as a spoiler-free introduction to the world of My Beautiful Paper Smile, Night In Riverager acts as both a demo, and as a compelling horror short in its own right. It tells an all-new story that touches on familiar locations and characters, making it both an ideal starting point for new players interested in the series, and a must-play for MBPS fans wanting to see more of its dark and surreal world and its inhabitants.
