... and more
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.
Includes the complete original game with all 31 days and 20 endings. Also adds unlockable multitouch support for faster paperwork, an enhanced inspection mode, Game Center achievements, leaderboards, mid-day resume, and more.
This game contains mature themes, non-photographic nudity, and brief moments of pixelated violence.
Fixed startup crash on iOS 10.
Ratings and Reviews
Lots of the triple A games that are spat out yearly by corporate giants boast about having complex facial animations and stunning visuals. Papers Please is proof that you can create empathy in other ways. Never have I felt more moved by a game than when I watched a small bundle of pixels run across the screen to embrace their long lost love, only to see that bundle of pixels be blown to pieces later that week; that’s Papers Please. It’s deliciously dark with a hopeful undertone. There are moments of fear, hope, despair, laughter, grief, nostalgia, anger, suspicion and triumph around every corner. The game procedurally gets more and more difficult until it reaches a fever pitch and it WILL punish you for cracking under the pressure. If you haven’t already bought it, do that now.
Glory to the new Arstotzka!
I like how there are multiple endings in this game such as the order of the ezic star so we can revolutionize Arstotzka, this game was released 4 years ago and I want to get it but I thought it was only Pc until I realized you can download it from the IPad I have a IPad Pro IOS 11 I thought you can’t play it because it requires a up to date thing but now I’m enjoying it and trying to get the endings Glory Lucas! (The developer of this game!)
Glory to Arstotzka!
Papers, Please is now one of my top 5 favourite video games ever, such an awesome and unique experience with really interesting characters, an engaging story and compelling subplots. If anyone is thinking of getting this game, I highly recommend you do, as it is an amazing game!
