In 2023, Paper Trail, a gorgeous paper-craft puzzler, will fold onto a switch

The next puzzle game from Norwich-based developer Newfangled Games is a gorgeous top-down adventure where the world is composed of paper. In Paper Trail, you may fold, crease, and alter the paper world around you in addition to its delicate color scheme and distinctive visual aesthetic.

Paper Trail will come out this year on Switch and all other platforms, including Netflix, which was just announced as a platform.For the first time ever, a young girl named Paige (get it?) appeared in the game.To help Paige, you’ll need to use your paper-crafting skills to fold and unfold the globe to make a path.

The game won a lot of awards before it came out, including “Most Innovative” at IndieX and “Best Family Game” at the Gamescom Awards. But don’t simply take the praise at face value; have a look at the game itself and the key elements listed below:

• A folding world – folding and joining paths together to explore and progress. Alter the fabric of the world, contorting, spinning, rotating, twisting as players try to untangle the puzzles.
• Engaging puzzles and intriguing people –
 puzzles that challenge wits and bring the player through the world of Paper Trail. Travelling through the folds will introduce Paige to a unique cast of characters, who tell their stories and enlighten Paige about the wider world.
• Handcrafted beautiful environments –
 from deep dark caves that have been untouched for years to the tallest treetops buffeted by rain. Explore a variety of handcrafted environments as Paige makes her journey to university, taking in the sights and wonders as she goes.
• An enchanting art style –
 experience the art of Paper Trail which draws heavily from flat aesthetic styles, like printmaking and watercolour, blended to create a uniquely styled game that compliments the paper theme.

If you are unable to contact me, I am unsure if I will be able to contact you. The game’s unique gameplay and cute graphics make it seem like it could completely change the puzzle game genre when it comes out for Switch later this year.
