Papers, Please is another Indie full of quality and by time pass people realize games don't need good graphics to be good (because this one doesn't have it anyway). In Papers, Please we are immigration inspector, and we are working on fictitious country called Arstotzka (it has some similar to Union Soviet). Well our work there is choose if people can pass through or not and while we do this we will have some side quest.
Our main character is full unknown, the only thing we know is that he has a family to take care of and later on he will also will take care of niece, this man works on the boarder after a war that end 6 years ago.
About the game himself, at very beginning i was bit bored and i though to myself, is only this? And 1h30 pass by and i got in "love" by this game. So we get a rule book, and morning paper with information about if important people will arrive or if need to take any specific passport. You will often be faced with smugglers, spies and even terrorists arriving at your border gate,and you will determined if they can pass or not (this game is good because of that, give freedom). Also this kinda "plays" with your emotion because sometimes you need to chose between your family or the other people family (you will get what i mean when you play it).
There are a total of 20 endings, each occurs as a result of you doing things a certain way, and there are still a lot of choices in this linear story, and each ending is determinate by the action you do like, accept cash, let someone cross the boarder or even let your family starve. We also have some secret Government organization called EZIC, we have the change to do some quest to those guys, although is not an obligation. In the end of the day we have more choices to make, we get our pay check and is so small that we need to chose were to spend like, on food, heat, rent or even when is our son bday. So when you are at boarder working you need to less errors as possible to not get discounted.
The game is set to have 31 days of work (there is an endless mode for those who complete the story) and once complete a day, you are allowed to start a semi-new game from that day and make a different decision. When each day takes around 15 minutes to complete.
Since this is and Indie title i think we all are waiting for good OST, but this is not the case, at the main menu we have decent BGM but that all, during the game you only hear noises nothing else.
So for sure i would recommend this game to anyone, is super good and worth the money they are asking!
Glory To Arstotzka!
