Pixel Reef’s Paper Beast was expected to release this year but was announced to be delayed in PlayStation’s recent State of Play presentation. The good news is that the PlayStation VR title has received a new trailer, and is now expected to release in Q1 2020. Check out the trailer below.
Paper Beast is centered entirely on origami paper, which is to say that its flora and fauna are completely paper based. Players will rely on different paper-based creatures, evolving and progressing with you throughout the journey. It’s fairly surreal but also pretty gorgeous looking.
Given the work that’s going into it – the developer notes on PlayStation Blog that creature movement had to be calculated and change in tune with the player and environment – the delay is understandable. We’re looking forward to the final product especially in PlayStation VR. For non-VR owners, the PS4 version will be releasing at a later date so stay tuned for more information.
