About Paper Beast

From the creative mind of renowned game designer Eric Chahi (Another World, Heart of Darkness, From Dust) comes Paper Beast, an exploration and adventure VR game that lets players explore and interact with a mysterious ecosystem set in a lost digital world.

The player-explorers in Paper Beast can interact with every creature they discover on their journey. Powered by an extensive physics engine that calculates the creatures’ motions in real-time, they can be lifted up to resolve situations or to rescue them from predators and natural danger. The animals will adapt their behavior accordingly. The player is also able to manipulate the terrain to overcome obstacles or resolve environmental puzzles.

Paper Beast is set for a release early in 2020 on PlayStation VR. Paper Beast is the first creation of Eric’s independent studio Pixel Reef, based in Montpellier, France.
