Papetura Switch NSP Free Download GAMESPACK.NET Oscar Wilde famously described art as being “quite useless,” by which he meant not that it’s pointless or without value but that it exists for no practical reason, save that the world is a little nicer for having it there. Great art makes us stop and reflect on how lucky we are to experience it—after all, whoever chose to make it didn’t have to. I thought about that a lot while wandering through Papetura’s papercrafted corridors. It wasn’t necessary for developer Tomasz Ostafin to spend six years designing, engineering, and hand constructing each and every visual element out of paper. Nothing about this story of two unlikely heroes in a world on fire demanded such an exacting and painstaking approach. Ostafin would have been forgiven, especially after an unsuccessful crowdfunding campaign, for setting his sights lower and using more traditional methods to animate his game, or even abandoning it entirely—but ease and practicality weren’t the point. Rather, the point was to create something gorgeous, unique, and full to bursting with life in a way that no other title could be, and by that metric Papetura is a resounding success. You play as Pape, a grumpy fellow who looks something like an unfurled scroll with arms and legs. TOP/BEST ADULT VIDEO GAMES IN UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (USA)

Pape lives in his own little corner of an underground realm made entirely from paper, and he’d like nothing more than to be left alone there. Unfortunately for him, his privacy is suddenly invaded by a being of living darkness, which seals him in his room in an apparent attempt to prevent anyone from interfering with its plans to set the world ablaze. Escaping into the havoc caused by the dark being’s attempt to harness the sun, Pape stumbles upon Tura, a small worm-like child who seems to have been abandoned in the chaos. Much as he might like to keep running and save himself, Pape is moved by Tura’s plight, and he reluctantly steps in to act as the child’s guardian. Scooping Tura up in his arms, Pape sets off into the great unknown to look for a way to reverse the damage. It’s no stretch to say that Papetura’s success or failure hinged from the outset on how fully it could imbue its paper world with the spark of life. Thankfully it pulls the feat off beautifully. You’d arguably have to go back all the way to The Neverhood to find another point-and-click title that so embraces the material it’s made from with such unfettered playfulness and curiosity. This isn’t simply a game made out of paper, but an exploration and celebration of the qualities that make papercraft a unique creative medium.

Unique point and click adventure experience, for about 2 hours.

Papetura leans into its paperiness with wrinkles and fold-marks lending texture to everything, and light from the expertly placed LED bulbs shining through surfaces to make full use of their translucency. There’s a weight and physicality to the landscapes and characters even as their creased, crumpled and caved-in forms proudly defy the conventions of real-world biology and geography. The environments resemble vast caverns, full of rocky outgrowths, yawning crevasses, and underground lakes. The color palette serves to create an atmosphere of subterranean intimacy, with dusky oranges that evoke flickering lantern light and cool blue-whites like the glow from a phosphorescent cave-being. The flora and fauna scattered throughout are wonderfully alien, like a ceiling-dwelling creature who serves as a living water main and a toothy, insectivorous beastie resembling a suitcase with legs, and for the most part they move with fluid, lifelike grace. Those few that don’t, like the patrons of a small cafe in the belly of a monster, nonetheless exude a jerky stop-motion charm. It’s not just the critters that thrum with life, though every inch of the world feels simultaneously organic and like a very human artistic achievement.Lucy Dreaming

The soundtrack contributes heavily to this, as each screen is accompanied by a whole menagerie’s worth of ambient noise, giving the impression that you’re wandering through a dense and thriving ecosystem. The dialogue is all non-verbal, with characters communicating via pictographic speech bubbles, but everyone you meet has a distinct personality that they express through squeaks, chirps, grumbles and squelches. The most expressive and endearing of these belong to the central characters, and especially little Tura, whose childlike coos and gurgles manage to convey an impressive and frequently hilarious array of emotions and reactions. Composer Floex’s synth-orchestral score lends an ethereal, otherworldly quality to the proceedings, once again equaling the quality of his previous work with Amanita Design. Though the point & click adventure genre may be relatively dormant since the golden era of ’80s & ’90s PC Gaming, modern independent studios have proven time and time again there still is an audience for these types of titles. Luckily for us, a cascade of content ever rolls out of the depths of Steam, Itch.io, and the like; one such “poke and tapper” has left a sizable paper trail full of artistry, craftsmanship, and homages.

Everything is made out of paper, from tiny insects, strange creatures and monsters to truly magical locations.

So let’s shine a light on the fantastical and freakish world of Papetura. Instantly, there’s a sense of otherworldliness and mystery from only booting the game. Confined within a papier-mâché cage, a sentient strip of paper called Pape mills about – accompanied by a moth-like creature and a series of luminescent flower bulbs (i.e. what I assume a typical Switz prison is like). You aren’t subject to spend the remainder of your days in jail of course, no matter how serene it may be! No, your adventure awaits beyond making the world’s most simplistic prison break: drop-kicking living footstools, befriending a little shadow-cat like critter called Tura that spits hairballs of life and stores objects in its face, and becoming vored by a worm-like Monstro from Pinnochio Strange as the story may be, the plot isn’t the focal point of Papetura. No dialogue is shared between characters other than miniature animatics that float above the person of interest. Even still at the tail end of the game, Papetura managed to tug at the heartstrings with a satisfying little narrative loop seeded near the beginning of your journey. Papetura has a distinctive handcrafted aesthetic that permeates throughout the two or so hour playthrough. The game has a cinematic quality of world-building purely through environmental design.Little Nightmares

without it feeling like an interactive movie. In fact, the detail elicits a tactile texture that’s organic and fragile – as would a world whittled from wood and paper would feel like. The scope and ambition of this project are admirable – watching the behind-the-scenes video the games’ creator Tomasz Ostafin put together of the creative process is awe-inspiring. From storyboard sketches to creating 3D assets, printing out the blueprints, and cutting them from cardboard… the entire process paid off in spades! And the use of lighting tethers the gameplay to the game world effortlessly. Papetura is further bolstered by its audible quality – the erratic and peaceful arrangement by composer Floex (aka Tomas Dvorak), peppered with tangibly visceral sound design from Juraj Mravec compliment the texture of the game. As a point & click adventure, Papetura is brief but satisfying. There were some instances where the puzzles were… puzzling, but I never thought they were ever too difficult. It helps that there were a variety of obstructions, and ways to combat them; and if you were in a pinch, you can get a clue courtesy of a little animatic hint from an adorable little bubble.

Puzzles are a part of the story and the world,

Hints don’t come so easily, as you’re required to complete a mini-game before being rewarded. There’s some clear inspiration from some of the genre’s cult classics such as 1996’s clay world in The Neverhood, and 2009’s Machinarium (Floex having created the music for that game too!). Though it may be a bit too early to board the nostalgia boat of the mid to late 2000s, there’s a quality behind Papetura’s stop-motion animation that’s so oddly specific but unmistakable to that time. For those keen to spend an hour and a half with Papetura, I’d highly recommend saving this game for a rainy day – ideally with a cup of hot cocoa, perhaps with a blanket & cushion fort, along with some fairy lights to boot. While the point and click, 2D adventure genre isn’t quite at the heights that it was decades ago, developers continue to rely on it to provide mind bending adventures. While there is plenty of choice when it comes to this subgenre, one developer has managed to carve out a very distinct niche for itself. Amanita Design uses strange worlds, different visual styles, and unique perspectives to engage and dumbfound players who choose to go on their adventures.

It’s an area that has so far been unchallenged by others, but a new title called Papetura from developer Petums hopes to make its own mark with a similar style. Papetura is a minimalistic game, and so the story is appropriately simple and mysterious. You play as a sort of character made of paper, who one day is woken up by a dark creature who has seemingly invaded your home. As you hide and follow in its footsteps, you soon come across a bright light that seems to be the source of energy for you and all the various creatures found in this world. However, the light is then stolen, and so you set out in a quest to recover it, and restore peace. The game doesn’t feature any writing or dialogue, but there are occasional 2D animations in a thought-like bubble, that provide hints as to what may happen next. The story, like many other aspects of this puzzle adventure game, share a lot of similarities with the works of developer Amanita Design. The creatures you encounter make funny noises, perform strange actions, and add to the eerie vibe of the whole place. Early in the game you’ll be united with a strange cat-like creature who will accompany for the rest of the adventure. This creature is used to solve puzzles, by being able to shoot small projectiles at things, and also acting as your paddle in a water scenario.

As it amusingly gasps for air with each time you row, it exemplifies the strange and yet amusing nature of this world. In another example, you may have to use this cat to unclog a creature, so that it can rise or lower the water level in the area. On your way to restore the life to your home, you’ll use typical point and click controls to walk around and interact with items in the environment. Your character walks pretty slowly, and the items that you can interact with do not offer any sort of shimmer or hint. You may need to shoot at a light to create a specific pattern, or keep kicking a creature until it goes to another screen. So on occasion, you might find yourself simply clicking around to see what can happen. As a puzzle game, Papetura can be hit or miss. As it takes place in an abstract world, you don’t always know what to look for or what kind of items can interact with others. This leads to some obtuse solutions, and because the game is so brief, there’s no time to introduce players to new concepts – you’re sort of thrown into the fray and expected to figure out new mechanics on your own, without much warning. A few puzzles seem confusing, and require actions that you didn’t realize you could perform until that point. If you do get stuck on a puzzle, there is a hint system that requires a fast paced minigame to be overcome to reveal the hint. Though the hints aren’t always helpful, they are appreciated as an option.The Callisto Protocol
