Newfangled Games has announced that its award-winning top-down, 2D paper-folding puzzle adventure game Paper Trail will release on Nintendo Switch.
The game will first release on Netflix, before coming to the portable home console at a later date. It stars Paige, an aspiring academic who leaves home for the first time to pursue her studies in a foldable, paper world. On her journey, you will learn to fold the world around you to solve its puzzles, explore new areas and uncover otherwise long-lost secrets.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with Netflix on Paper Trail,” enthuses Newfangled Games founder Henry Hoffman. “This game has been our passion project for over two years and we can’t wait for players to experience what we’ve been working on when it’s released later this year.
“Collaborating with Netflix is a huge achievement for us as a team. From publishing and helping us reach millions of players around the world, the support they’ve provided has been incredible. It’s truly been an honour. We hope players enjoy Paper Trail as much as we loved creating it!”
The developer has outlined the game’s key features, which include:
- A Folding World: Folding and joining paths together to explore and progress. Alter the fabric of the world, contorting, spinning, rotating, twisting as players try to untangle the puzzles.
- Engaging Puzzle And Intriguing People: Puzzles that challenge wits and bring the player through the world of Paper Trail. Travelling through the folds will introduce Paige to a unique cast of characters, who tell their stories and enlighten Paige about the wider world.
- Handcrafted Beautiful Environments: From deep dark caves that have been untouched for years to the tallest treetops buffeted by rain. Explore a variety of handcrafted environments as Paige makes her journey to university, taking in the sights and wonders as she goes.
- An Enchanting Art Style: Experience the art of Paper Trail which draws heavily from flat aesthetic styles, like printmaking and watercolour, blended to create a uniquely styled game that compliments the paper theme.
Paper Trail will release digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in 2023.
