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.”
