Papers, Please

released on Aug 08, 2013

The communist state of Arstotzka has just ended a 6-year war with neighboring Kolechia and reclaimed its rightful half of the border town, Grestin. Your job as immigration inspector is to control the flow of people entering the Arstotzkan side of Grestin from Kolechia. Among the throngs of immigrants and visitors looking for work are hidden smugglers, spies, and terrorists. Using only the documents provided by travelers and the Ministry of Admission's primitive inspect, search, and fingerprint systems you must decide who can enter Arstotzka and who will be turned away or arrested.

Maravilhoso, mas o sistema os ganhos poderiam ser maior.

Played one time. My whole family fucking perished. Uninstalled. May try again in the future.

the headspace I get into with this game is crazy. nothing around me, hear nothing, see nothing, feel nothing, only papers.
on the other hand the perfect harmony gets broken as soon as I make one mistake and ragequit.

Absolutely brilliant example of how games can tell a story in an unconventional way and hit you where it hurts. The way they use tedium to lull you into security before twisting your heart with the story beats is just incredible. Can't recommend it enough.

So this is what it feels like to work as an IO =))
