Howdy! It’s single-player time!
I’m really happy that thousands of players are out there having fun with Paperbound. I’ve been listening to what people have been saying…which is that you want more. The fact that it’s local-multiplayer-only means that you don’t always have the opportunity to enjoy it. That’s why I’m adding a campaign mode that takes you through various challenges through all the maps. You can play solo or with a buddy (1-2 players, locally). The campaign pits you against various semi-random challenges as your progress through all the books. Expect all the game modes you’re used to, plus some wacky new things.
Play it early. Help guide it.
The final campaign will be available on both our platforms later this summer. But if you’re on Steam, you can play it right now and offer your input to help guide it into what you want to play. All you have to do is opt in for the beta on Steam (just a few clicks — see “Product Beta” here). And if you bought Paperbound on PS4 and want in on this, just shoot me an email. This is a chance to talk directly with me about where the campaign heads, as well as be the first to check out other improvements. You can reach me through email, or in thePaperbound group on Steam, or on Twitter.
The initial version of the campaign is already up in the Steam beta. And even if you stay with the mainline version on Steam, you’ll notice some additions such as the narrator from the trailer commenting on double-kills, squishings, and other things that you do. There’s now more flexibility in choosing teams. And you can access the secret soccer mode by hitting the Y button in the team game types menu.
The celebrate these changes and share them with even more people, Paperbound will be 40% off for 24 hours starting this Saturday, May 30, at 10 am PST. If you haven’t grabbed it yet, or you have a friend who would love it, it will be a great chance to pick it up.
