Paper Trail is a puzzle game with adventure game elements, standing out for its unusual world, created from double-sided sheets of paper, which we manipulate during gameplay. It was developed and published by a small, indie London-based studio Newfangled Games.


Paige, whom we take on the role of, is a freshman and leaves her hometown neighborhood for the first time to reach the University and continue her studies. During her journey, she discovers many new picturesque places and the secrets associated with them, and learns about different people, their stories and wisdom. He moves through the world using her stealth skills and by combining his two sides, which she must expand.

Game mechanics

We move through a 2D world made of interconnected double-sided pieces of paper. Using the extraordinary abilities of our heroine, we have to bend them in such a way (from eight sides) to create a path forward. We do this by appropriately connecting paths, moving and rotating their mobile pieces, recreating patterns, or using pressure fields and moving objects. Often this requires multi-step movements and the ability to retrace one's steps back to the starting point.

For the more ambitious, stars are hidden in some nooks and crannies of the maps, the collecting of which requires extra thinking.
