Description

Paperville Panic is an action-adventure VR exploration game. A completely unprepared town made entirely of paper is hit by its first ever fire, and it’s up to you to save it. Guided by a less-than-stellar fire department, Rookie (that’s you!) must help restore Paperville to it’s former papery glory. From clearing building fires, rescuing citizens from rubble, hacking through doors, to dealing with townsfolk and their personal issues, Rookie does it all. Paperville is proof that anyone has what it takes to be a hero, as long as safety and saving lives aren’t priorities. A tongue-in-cheek look into the world of firefighting, in a town filled with strange critters, a curious Mayor, odd personalities, and secrets to uncover. Built in Unity, the game is launching on Steam in Early Access, with additional content including further missions and special events being added until the game's full release next year. Only you can be the one to save Paperville. Well, someone else probably could, but you’re all they’ve got.

History

Everyone wants to be a hero. When we started to concept out the game, we went back to our childhood and to the professions we looked up to - astronauts, police officers, doctors… there were several games we could recall for each until we landed on firefighter. Suddenly, someone suggested “what if the world was made of paper?” and we knew we were onto our concept. What does the world look like? It’s people? What do they build their houses with? What do they have to worry about? ...What if they’d never seen a fire before? Suddenly, Rookie was born - the first person to step into the world of Paperville and it’s people (paple!) and be part of the otherwise useless fire department - after all, in a world made of paper, how often would there be a fire?
