Perplexing Paper Puzzles Coming to iOS and Android Devices
Norwich, UK – 14th March 2023. Newfangled Games and Netflix today announced award-winning top-down, 2D paper folding puzzle adventure game, Paper Trail will come to Netflix in 2023.
Paper Trail is a top-down puzzle adventure following Paige, a budding academic leaving home for the first time to pursue her studies in a foldable, paper world. On the journey, players will learn to fold the world around them to solve its puzzles, explore new areas and uncover long-lost secrets. Paper Trail features:
- 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 puzzle 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.
Paper Trail has won over 25 awards and accolades including ‘Best Family Game’ at the Gamescom Awards, ‘Game of the Year’ at Reboot Develop, ‘Most Innovative’ at IndieX and ‘Best Mobile Game’ at Taipei Game Show, among many others.
