About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

'A Tale of Paper' Coming to More Consoles and PC in Late 2021, Demo Available - Screens & Trailer

A Tale of Paper is an emotional adventure of a paper boy who uses origami to fulfill the dream of his creator.

Can a dream transcend its owner? Line is no ordinary hero: for a start, Line is a piece of paper. But it's not a regular piece of paper either: it is able to transform itself into different shapes such as frogs, paper planes, rockets, or even birds.In this textless adventure, each of these shapes allows Line to navigate through the real world of A Tale of Paper in a magical perpsective in order to unveil its mysteries.

Instead of power-ups, Line will use origami to overcome every obstacle on its way, even some evil Roombas: Line must combine all of its abilities to clear every stage. But be careful, because every shape only allows Line to perform one action. As a frog, Line can jump higher but it can't walk or run. We wanted to transmit Line's fragility (and his potential to overcome obstacles) through this idea, combined with clever level design and some relentless enemies called Roombas.

A Tale of Paper's slow-paced and deep gameplay is what makes it special, mixing puzzles and platforming but we also throw in some suspense and bits and pieces of walking simulation in this mix. It is also worth noting that this is no 2D platformer. The camera scrolls laterally, but players can roam in its world in any direction.

A Tale of Paper is coming to the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC in Q3/Q4 2021.
