Paper Beast Release Date and Trailer Revealed


Pixel Reef has announced that Paper Beast, their new VR exploration and adventure game, will release March 24th for PlayStation VR.

The new game from Eric Chahi, the game designer behind Another World, Heart of Darkness and From Dust, is a dreamlike odyssey where players are invited to discover a wild simulated ecosystem, born from lost Internet data.

In this unexplored artificial world, delicate bonds are formed between fascinating and exotic stirring creatures and the player in order to solve environmental puzzles and unravel the game’s mysteries.

Paper Beast was created from the ground up for virtual reality: through experimentation with the environment, and the actions they take, players will come to understand the mysterious world of Paper Beast through the real-time consequences they create.

Two modes are available for Paper Beast: the adventure mode for the player to explore a dreamlike world, inhabited by fascinating creatures and the sandbox mode, an almost-infinite experimentation space.

As the first explorer of this untouched land, players will discover that interaction with creatures is the heart of the gameplay. As they progress, collaboration with life will help players shape the environment to overcome obstacles or resolve environmental puzzles.

The Sandbox mode approximates a god game experience, where experimentation and ecosystem play a major role. The player can sculpt the terrain, play with the weather, and interact with creatures and plants. All consequences are calculated in real-time by the deep physics engine that powers Paper Beast.

Paper Beast’s official soundtrack, between ambient and punk rock, is available for pre-order on Bandcamp and in double vinyl edition on the G4F Records store.

Founded by renowned game designer Eric Chahi (Another World, Heart of Darkness, From Dust), Pixel Reef aims to create immersive indie games with a poetic touch. The independent studio sees itself as an atoll, a happy place ripe for creative exploration.
