Story

The communist state of Arstotzka has just ended a 6-year war with neighboring Kolechia and reclaimed its rightful half of the border town, Grestin.

Your job as immigration inspector is to control the flow of people entering the Arstotzkan side of Grestin from Kolechia. Among the throngs of immigrants and visitors looking for work are hidden smugglers, spies, and terrorists.

Using only the documents provided by travelers and the Ministry of Admission's primitive inspect, search, and fingerprint systems you must decide who can enter Arstotzka and who will be turned away or arrested.

Editors’ Notes

It’s one thing to say you’d never take a bribe: It’s quite another when your options are taking one or missing rent or going hungry. That’s but a taste of the moral quandaries in Papers, Please, which puts you in the shoes of a border checkpoint agent in a fictional 1980s nation. Learning to master passport processing skills, avoiding fines, and making the most of your paycheck is uniquely satisfying and provocative in a way few games manage to achieve. This celebrated indie gem teaches us as much about empathy as it does time management.
