'Paper Cut Mansion' Gets Nintendo Switch, PS4 And PS5 Release Date

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

Explore the titular mansion floor by floor, solving puzzles, battling enemies and completing quests as you unlock new abilities to aid you on each run and seek to solve the mystery behind the mansion.

In Paper Cut Mansion you play as Toby, a police detective arriving at the road leading to the eponymous old mansion. You will need to put those detective skills to the test as you seek to unfold the story behind this ominous place, with each run giving you the opportunity to collect another piece of evidence to be tacked on the Evidence Board. An intriguing cast of characters will be met along your journey through the mansion and may help or hinder you: some will offer you quests that can earn you helpful rewards, some will try to hide and some have more malicious intent toward you.

In each unique run, you will unlock new abilities and discover new equipment. This will offer you the opportunity of defining your own playstyle, in addition to giving you a better chance of overcoming the challenges each procedurally generated attempt throws your way. Intrigue is further added through a dimension-hopping mechanic that lets you leap between alternate versions of the same location that switch up the aesthetics and gameplay.

With a variety of enemies, clues, quests, secrets, loot and compelling logic puzzles scattered throughout the mansion, there is always something intriguing to discover on each run, as well as a variety of things for you to do - from upgrading your kit, to solving puzzles, to delving into Paper Cut Mansion’s twisting story. The game’s aesthetics are rendered using traditional and digital means. Each texture is hand-drawn on paper, then scanned into a computer, to be modeled into 3D paper crafts. The combination of unique visuals, multi-layered gameplay and musical story interludes make Paper Cut Mansion a roguelite horror experience you won’t want to miss!

Thunderful Space Lizard Studios are pleased to announce that Paper Cut Mansion will launch December 5th on PlayStation and Switch for a price of $19.99 / €19.99 / £16.99. 

“After launching on PC and Xbox, our small team has been working hard to get the game ready for PlayStation and Switch players,” said Gabriele Caruso, Lead Designer at Space Lizard Studio. “I’m delighted that we’re drawing close to finally letting players on those platforms loose in the mansion on December 5th!”
