Play OverviewPlay Overview

Papetura (2021) is a point-and-click puzzle game where you traverse a vibrant paper world of strange organic structures and whimsical fairy houses. You interact with these things to complete puzzles and little challenges like lighting up a room or creating a pathway. It's an interesting game made more fascinating because it was designed in actual paper that was photographed to make each scene.

You play Pape, a strange paper creature who escapes from a dark prison with the help of a magical creature called Tura. Together, they move through the world, interacting with characters and fighting against dark, shadowy forces that threaten to burn down the paper world they grow to love.

You play by exploring the varied paper landscapes and paying close attention to how you can interact with the environment. Puzzles can range from lighting up areas to finding and collecting items, and if you get stuck, you can play a mini-game, where you eat specific creatures while avoiding others, that then grants helpful hints to the solution.

The result is an intricate and detailed game that offers a unique mix of varied environmental puzzles, a simple yet powerful story, and handcrafted worlds to explore that create a uniquely engaging game.
