When even Nintendo itself has abandoned the winning formula of classic Paper Mario games, it’s up to indie developers to carry on that beloved legacy. Bug Fables is just such a game. From its combat system to its graphics to its personality, Bug Fables is a cute little RPG that simply oozes Paper Mario. However, it nonetheless carries its own distinct identity. It tells an impactful and emotional story along with a streamlined gameplay flow that all work together to make it a truly distinctive and worthwhile RPG in its own right.

Bug Fables: The Everlasting Sapling has received some footage thanks to Direct Feed Games on YouTube. This 15 minute gameplay feature takes you through the beginning of the game and shows off some of the Paper Mario-like battles.
