Posted on April 13, 2022 by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop
Publisher Thunderful and Space Lizard Studio today unveiled Paper Cut Mansion, a roguelite horror title that takes place in a handcrafted world. The project will be appearing on Switch later in 2022.
Paper Cut Mansion will have players exploring the mansion floor by floor, solving puzzles, battling enemies, and completing quests. New abilities can be unlocked along the way to help them get further on runs and solve the game’s main mystery.
Below is some additional information:
In Paper Cut Mansion you play as Toby, a police detective arriving at the road leading to the eponymous old mansion. You will put those detective skills to the test as you seek to unravel the story behind this bizarre place, with each run giving you the opportunity to collect another piece of evidence to be tacked on the Evidence Board. The intriguing cast of characters you will meet as you explore may help or hinder you: some will offer quests that can earn you helpful rewards, some will try to hide and some are out to get you.
Run by run, Paper Cut Mansion will offer you the opportunity of defining your playstyle as you unlock new abilities and discover new equipment that will give you a better chance of overcoming the challenges each procedurally generated run throws at you. Intrigue is further added through a dimension-hopping mechanic that lets you leap between alternate versions of the same location that switch up the aesthetics and gameplay.
With a variety of enemies, clues, quests, secrets, loot and compelling logic puzzles scattered throughout the mansion, there is always something intriguing to discover on each run, as well as a variety of things for you to do – from upgrading your kit, to solving puzzles, to delving into Paper Cut Mansion’s twisting story. The game’s incredible aesthetics are rendered using traditional and digital means. Each texture is hand-drawn on paper, then scanned into a computer, to be modeled into 3D paper crafts. The combination of unique visuals, multi-layered gameplay and musical story interludes make Paper Cut Mansion a roguelite horror experience you won’t want to miss!
We have the debut trailer for Paper Cut Mansion below.
Paper Cut Mansion will be sold digitally on Switch via the eShop. We’ll have more about the game in the future, including a release date.
