“This looks like a very interesting combination of old-school turn-based RPG, with a very interesting modern first-person aesthetic, fantastic use of blank space and unreal design.”
Rock Paper Shotgun

“Come on people, it’s only FIVE BUCKS and it’s one of the best overall gaming experiences I've had in 2013. Pick this up; you won't regret it.”
Diehard Gamefan

“Paper Sorcerer nevertheless doesn't lose an ounce of its incredible gameplay and in this way maintains an incredible classic charm.”
Indie Locus

Na minha visão, o Kickstarter existe para que criadores com uma visão única possam encontrar seu público e conseguir financiar suas produções sem a interferência de intermediários ou investidores. E acredito que sejam merecedores de meu dinheiro aqueles projetos que não passariam incólumes ou não passariam de forma alguma pela junta de aprovação de uma grande produtora.

Paper Sorcerer é um destes deliciosos casos de um produto que jamais encontraria espaço no portfólio de uma empresa ou seria descartado com facilidade como o projeto de um louco.

Esse louco atende pelo nome de Jesse Gallagher. Sem nunca ter trabalhado na indústria de jogos eletrônicos ou mesmo ter recebido uma única aula de programação, ele resolveu criar um RPG para computador inspirado em suas ideias e na sua arte. Pediu 5 mil dólares no Kickstarter. Ganhou 13 mil.

A arte é justamente o que se destaca em Paper Sorcerer, um título de RPG medieval que parece ter saído direto da literatura de cordel, com tons monocromáticas e clima sombrio. E este estilo visual sui generis, com nenhum objeto ou ambiente realmente em 3D, se justifica no enredo: você é um mago, aprisionado em um livro mágico, que precisa enfrentar seus guardiões e soltar as linhas que prendem as páginas para que possa encontrar a liberdade. Como quem folheia um livro amarelado pelo tempo e corroído, você enfrenta uma grande quantidade de perigos, todos desenhados à mão com maestria e com animações de combate que evocam as animações pioneiras que flipavam o papel.

Gallagher poderia ter parado por aí, satisfeito com a beleza poética de seu jogo. Mas bebeu intensamente na fonte dos RPGs táticos do passado e criou um sistema de combate de turnos que desafia e empolga com suas infinitas possibilidades. Uma escolha errada pode ser literalmente a diferença entre ter todo o seu time pulverizado sem chance de reação e uma vitória impecável, quase sem danos. Eu sei porque eu vi isso, mais de uma vez.

Em Paper Sorcerer você controla um Invocador, um feiticeiro que é capaz de invocar criaturas monstruosas para lutar ao seu lado. São 12 seres diferentes, mas você precisa escolher três que irão acompanhar o personagem central em todos os momentos. A diversidade de estratégias diferentes que você pode criar aumenta exponencialmente o fator replay e certamente haverá uma combinação que será matadora para seu estilo de jogar.

No meu caso, meu primeiro escolhido foi um Troll. Arrependi-me amargamente porque ele não é tão forte nem tão resistente como imaginava, sendo mais útil para ataques-surpresa e danos críticos. Mas o jogo permite que você desbloqueie outras chances de escolher novos companheiros e meu time fechou com um Minotauro como DPS (um titã capaz de fazer mais dano que os outros três personagens juntos), um Vampiro que servia como Healer/DPS (mantinha os demais personagens vivos com curas, mas também era meu segundo maior atacante) e o Esqueleto como Tank (uma esponja de dano que raramente morria). No final das contas, o próprio Sorcerer que é o protagonista exerceu pouca influência no combate, sendo o mais fraco da minha formação.

Com itens espalhados pelo cenário e um treinador de perícias, eu maximizei as potencialidades de cada personagem. O primeiro quarto do jogo foi difícil, o segundo e o terceiro foram muito fáceis, e o último quarto deu uma boa guinada na dificuldade, com batalhas hercúleas.

O maior defeito de Paper Sorcerer é sua extensão. Uma prova de que o Kickstarter pode ser uma faca de dois gumes, uma vez que uma das metas de faturamento atingidas era a promessa de níveis extras. Com 30% a menos de conteúdo, o título seria menos cansativo e repetitivo. No total, há 10 blocos de masmorras no livro-prisão, que seguem basicamente a mesma fórmula: três andares com múltiplas salas e uma penca de inimigos antes do confronto com um chefe de fase. Por volta do bloco 7 eu já estava mais enjoado do que encantado com a mágica criada por Gallagher. Não por acaso, apenas 4,4% dos jogadores desbloquearam o achievement no Steam de atingir o final da história.

Surpreendendo ainda mais, o título também traz um humor único, sem cair no deboche ou na sátira pura e simples. Há um certo ar de jogo infanto-juvenil, seja na caracterização de alguns NPCs (o vendedor de itens é... inusitado) ou na forma fantástica como o epílogo acontece.

Não satisfeito em criar um RPG desafiador, bonito e único, Gallagher ainda inseriu um enredo sutil que se revela aos poucos, salas secretas para serem abertas para os mais devotados jogadores e compôs uma trilha ímpar, que consegue ser uma homenagem aos clássicos RPGs da era dos midis e ser macabra ao mesmo tempo.

Paper Sorcerer é o único projeto, dentro daqueles que patrocinei no Kickstarter, que foi concluído até agora. Não é uma obra-prima. Mas fico imensamente feliz ao saber que apostei certo e com muito orgulho de saber que o nome do Retina Desgastada está lá, endossando os créditos.

Mal posso esperar pelo próximo projeto de Jesse Gallagher e sua Ultra Runaway Games.

This is one game i picked up on a whim as i had enough in my wallet to buy it and thought "OH THIS LOOKS DIFFERENT I WILL GIVE IT A GO",and boy i am glad i did.
The graphics really do,do the game justice and the way they suit the name of the game "PAPER SORCERER" is uncanny.When you are walking round the different floors of the prison you have been incarcerated in the game looks really good and flows really smoothly.It does look at times (when in fights and stationary in the sanctuary) that the art work has been drawn on paper and then transferred into the game,with the artwork reminding me of the artwork found in the old D&D books i used to read and play through with my friends when we played D&D when i was a kid.This works really well and the music in game adds to the feeling that you are actually playing a D&D board game but in actual game form,the graphics effects for spells are all ok and each one looks different.
The characters you amass on your journey all look different and all have different play styles from the heavy classes which include the "MINOTAUR" who is good at heavy attacks and powerfull special attacks to the defense classes which include the "SHADOW" who has great defense magic and also spells that prevent status effects.
The music in game (what is there) does a good job like i have said of putting you in that world of sword and sorcerey and never does outstay its welcome (could have done with some more sound effects in game though).
The story is both entertaining and a joy to watch as it unfolds the further you progress through the tower and it is both a mysterious and wonderous journey to take as you progress from level to level.The further you get the more the enemies change and the more you have to look at your play style and change up the tactics you have been using as what worked on the floor below might not (and usually doesnt) work on the floor your on,this forces you to look at your team and make changes accordingly as you get further into the game.
This brings me to the difficulty level which at first can seem quite punishing,but believe me it isnt,the more you play the game the better you get (YEAH OF COURSE DUH) and the more you learn the little intricacies the game can throw at you.Many a time i have got to the gaurdian who stops your progress to the next level just to be beaten (sometimes by my own lack of in game time to be honest) and therefore have to load up again,but then when you do you learn what he/she does and when he/she does it and what they are vulnerable to and also when they summon companions to fight you and also when they are going to use spells (some of them use certain other spells to prepare for the spell that they usually crush you with "WHY YOU PAIN IN THE A...") and with this you learn and evetually you will "CRUSH THEM AND TAKE THEIR SOULS".
There are a few in game quests to do that you dont have to do to finish the game and my favorite is finding the "LOST SOULS",when you do find these you hand them in to the creepy old man who lives in the abandoned house (all by himself so run away kids if you know whats good for you) and he then opens up a level of the "REAPERS DUNGEON",these are worth doing and handing in as you get the oppertunity to explore a level of the reapers dungeon and this means you can find some really cool gear and other items that just cant be found in the main game.
Will you like this game,well yes if you like a good sword and sorcery romp and have the patience to play through what can be at some times quite a tough and challenging game then by all means "STEP FORWARD ADVENTURER" if that doesnt sound like your cup of tea then look elswhere as this wont be the game for you.

Kickstarter success! What a steal, only $5. This is a great FP dungeon crawler RPG, heavily influenced by some of the best old school games such as the Wizardry titles. Very unique looking art design, and most importantly: no hand holding at all! The enemies offer fun challenges, it's not just generic trash mobs, with each level having its own unique elements and combat will require some use of tactics. There are different companions you can choose from, with many different viable party set-ups. Each main level has optional puzzles and hidden secrets; exploration is very enjoyable. The only downside is perhaps the music, which I thought didn't really fit the game. It would have been a much more atmospheric experience had the music been darker, more suspenseful. I chose to mute it and play to the Fallout 1 soundtrack ^^

I've said it on the forum, and I'll say it again...

Sometimes you shouldn't wait for a sale..

Sometimes you NEED to support the smaller developer when they attempt to recreate your childhood memories...

This game plays hard, is hard, it feels BRILLIANT!

Original looking, fresh yet familiar feeling...

It's Knightmare for 2014!

I'm a big fan of old-school dungeon crawlers, but Paper Sorcerer ultimately attempts to crib a lot from 2009's The Dark Spire, and instead delivers a buggy and underdeveloped slog. The trailer, screenshots, and overall aesthetic are impressive to be sure, but they belie a cumbersome user interface (for a genre that is 90% menus, why are the menus so annoying to use?), a sluggish battle system, and overall very dull mechanics that offer little in the way of exciting character molding or customization. A dungeon crawler must dangle the excitement of pushing forward and advancing your characters bit by bit, but Paper Sorcerer's skill system has no appeal and the battles are a chore of poorly-telegraphed information and so, so much waiting.

I want to like this game, and I truly do appreciate the efforts to bring more dungeon crawlers to the market, but Paper Sorcerer is a meandering and unfocused product in serious need of more thought-out game design and revised UI design.

As a $5 game, it is admittedly worth a try, even with the simplistic gameplay & numerous bugs (none of them game-breaking so far, at least) -- but if you value your time even moreso, my suggestion is to try out Legend of Grimrock on Steam or The Dark Spire on DS, two games in the same style that deliver a much more captivating experience.

In short: be wary. The paper aesthetic is so fresh and appealing that it's easy to assume the rest of the game is just as polished, but unfortunately the core gameplay is miles behind what I would expect from a 2014 Wizardry-like. Will you find it fun? It's hard to predict -- but if you keep up with the scant few post-2000 dungeon crawlers like I have, the answer will probably be No, because Paper Sorcerer decidedly does not want to do anything unique with the core genre.
