Play involves exploring the world made entirely out of bits of paper. Like paper, you can fold it, bend it, spin it. twist it and even tear it to overcome obstacles and find your way around. As you progress you meet and talk to the people in your village and learn their stories. Some of them need help, that usually involves working out how your paper folding ability can be put to good use.
It's a beautiful, charming world that offers a calm relaxing space in which to discover the coming-of-age story. The puzzles match the charm with ingenuity that can take some time to figure out, but are always satisfying.
The result is a devilishly tricky adventure that introduces Paige to a unique cast of characters, each with their stories and view of the wider world. From untouched deep dark caves to the tallest treetops buffeted by rain, it's a game that invites not only exploration but interaction.
