Lucas Popes’ simplistic yet extremely enjoyable and highly rated adventure indie game, Papers, Please, is now gearing up for a release on Android and iOS on August 5, 2022. Set in the 1980s in an imaginary state called Arstotzka, the game puts you in the shoes of an immigration inspector, whose job decides the fate of the lives of immigrants and allows visitors into the state, while also having the potential for immense damage in case smugglers, spies, and terrorists disguised as the innocent, fall through the filter and further hurt your nation.
Be an immigrant inspector and decides the fate of immigrants
At your disposal as the Immigration officer, all you have is the documentation that is being carried by those hoping for entry into Arstotzka. The inspection, search, and fingerprint systems, are barely enough for this task. It’s a challenging job made harder by the state of your country which has been weakened by a 6-year-long war.
Those who present red flags must be turned away or arrested and the game has over 20 possible endings. A lot of love seems to have gone into this project as it even has a short film. Originally a PC-only title, the game has received positive reviews from IGN, Eurogamer, and many others. It has also won multiple awards since it’s a unique experience worth a try.
According to the official website and Lucas, it’s coming to Android and iOS on August 5, although it was already on iPads for a while. The game will likely be a paid title like it is on PC (available for $9.99).
