The self-described “dystopian doc thriller” Papers, Please is getting a brand new cell port for iOS and Android, out on August fifth as a paid, standalone app.
The information was introduced on Twitter by the sport’s indie developer Lucas Pope. Papers, Please was initially launched for PC in 2013, with an iPad-only model launched in 2014, and PlayStation Vita port in 2017.
On Twitter, Pope joked that the sport was now “On monitor for a console launch in 2031.”
When the sport launched in 2013, Pope instructed The Verge that Papers, Please was impressed by his frequent journeys via immigration “and the belief that inspecting paperwork in a sport setting is perhaps enjoyable.” The sport takes place within the fictional Soviet state of Arstotzka, with the participant staffing an immigration counter and tasked with checking vacationers’ paperwork in opposition to an more and more convoluted algorithm and rules.
Responding to questions on Twitter, Pope mentioned the brand new cell port would have an interface constructed for smaller screens. “No zooming. My imaginative and prescient is horrible and I wished the sport to really feel pure on a cellphone,” he mentioned.
He added that the sport can be obtainable as an replace to the 2014 iPad app, and that iOS 11 can be the minimal supported OS. It’s not clear what the requirement shall be for Android or how a lot the sport will price.
