Papers, Please Short Film Out Now, Free to Watch

Glory to Arstotzka!

An excellent 10 minute film based on Lucas Pope’s powerful 2013 game Papers, Please is out now.

The film, which is free to watch on YouTube and Steam, does a wonderful job at capturing the bleak tone of Lucas Pope’s frantic puzzler and the moral quandaries suffered by his border crossing immigration officer in the made-up state of Arstotzka. 

In our review, we called Papers, Please “a simulation of that moment that a cog in the machine’s heart finally stops beating, or a kind of hidden object game where what you’re mostly looking for is a glimmer of hope.”
