Are You Ready For Your New Job?
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.
A true game, with a base gameplay that gets more and more complex as we play, with subtle touches and ruleset changes. But it's so much more as well : a deep dive in a terrifying dystopia, brilliantly crafted, that will put your life into perspective and awaken your political consciousness with both violence and humor. 5/5 - Gameblog.fr "Test : Papers, Please (PC, Mac)" -
Evil is performed by men in suits, golden pens in their chest pockets, and stamps in their hands. With a single move with their wrists, they sign death warrants, never seeing the consequences of their actions, maybe not even caring about them. 9/10 - Thunderbolt "Papers, Please" -

It's a tribute to the Cold War. An addictive game that's full of sarcasm and social commentary. A game that you should definitely try. 8/10 - GameOver.gr "Papers, Please" -
Papers, Please is anything but a standard adventure, but beneath the seemingly unappealing premise of bureaucratic drudgery and human misery lies a fascinating game of choices, surprises, and intrigue. - Adventure Gamers "Papers, Please REVIEW" -
"Papers, Please" is my attempt to capture the challenge of performing a difficult and sometimes tedious job under the constant threat of unknown dangers.
