Developer Pixel Reef has announced that Paper Beast: Folded Edition will be launching on October 20, 2020. It will be the non-VR version of Paper Beast.
Paper Beast: Folded Edition is a game about exploration. The player will explore a "dreamlike universe" while looking for life. As the first human to enter this strange reality, it is up to the player to investigate the "strange force" that seems to be part of this bizarre ecosystem.
There are two game modes being offered in Paper Beast: Folded Edition: the adventure and the sandbox. The adventure is the aforementioned campaign mode, while the sandbox is an "immersive playground" for players to explore. The sandbox is more akin to a god game, where players can terraform mountains, dig lakes, populate their ecosystem, and unleash tornadoes on an unsuspecting world.
Players will be able to help "majestic and intelligent creatures", but be warned: as their behavior will adapt the players' actions. If the player acts alike a jerk, then players shouldn't be surprised when the creatures act like jerks as well.
The game also features an original soundtrack that combines the "Japanese punk rock of TsuShiMaMire and the ambient style of Roly Porter." Sounds pretty trippy.
Paper Beast: Folded Edition will be released on October 20, 2020. If you want to check the game out before then, be sure to go to its Steam page and wishlist it.
