Development context

It's Paper Guy! is the final project for our 1st year of Master's Degree at Cnam-Enjmin (a french video game university).
The objectives set by our university was to create a 10 to 15 minutes interactive experience in about 3 months.
The dev was made for the PC platform as it allows us to focus on optimizing It's Paper Guy! and its mechanics the best way we can in such a short period.
We haven't made any decision yet about whether taking our project forward but who knows?

More about the game

This is such a great concept for a game! I think it would be interesting to have consequences for the things we cut since a lot of  what we cut in game is both good and bad, Great job Devs!

This game was unbelievable! I enjoyed it a lot! Great job!

im noticing a lack of options for stuff like low end computers, could this be implemented?

I was so pleasing to play this game after the first game was so stressful. I give it happy shaky hands.

This game is spooky. It DEFINITELY is, trust me..

The game was really lovely! Loved the animations and the level design, and the simplicity of the paper drawings really made it so much more! Great job on it and good luck for futureprojects!
