Unique Folding Mechanics

Paper Trail is a top-down puzzle adventure about leaving home, set in a paper world. You must fold and tear your way through a diverse, populated paper world. As you progress, new gameplay opportunities emerge, enhanced by the folding mechanics. Drag objects, shine lights, and push boulders across the paths you create through folding.

Fun & Engaging Characters

Our protagonist, Paige, excelled in school, and aims to be the first of her village to be offered a place at university. To the mixed reaction from her family, she sets off on an epic journey to start her first semester, mastering her powers along the way. During her journey, you will meet many characters with interesting stories of their own, who also help open up new paths.

Beautiful Worlds to Explore

The world itself draws heavily on flat styles—such as printmaking and watercolour—to further reinforce the paper theme. Our characters utilise clean monochrome designs that look like they could be collaged from cut paper. Each page has a bold colour scheme, and playing the game feels like flipping through a book of lusciously patterned textiles.
