Short Review – Papers Please
This is one incredible little game and it all (well mostly) takes place in a tiny little border control booth. It’s up to you to let people in to the country and of course they have to have the right papers, a good reason, ID, a visit visa or sometimes even unique documents. The rules of the games change for every work shift that passes you by and you have to make sure that you take a real good look at EVERYTHING to see if the documents are real. If they are you send them on their way in to the country, and if they’re not, you send them packing (or call the security on them).
When I started playing I really enjoyed making sure that all the papers are correct and it feelt simple enough to keep a good flow. But… the further I came in to the story everything started to get harder and harder. Checking the papers became a timed puzzle that you have to solve as fast as possible, you have a family that you have to feed and get medecine for, you have events and secret organisations that you have to make sure to keep track of. And once in awhile… you have to reach for a gun… and shoot intruders.
Everything is creating a horrible and very… realistic story which really ends up touching you. I was surprised by how much you could feel for this game. Definatly worth a try if you enjoy story and puzzle gaming.
