Be a gravity ninja as you battle your friends within the pages of old story books. Run up walls and on ceilings, and then invert your gravity for a surprise attack. It's chaotic yet strategic. Sometimes, it's madness. Sometimes, it's a cat-and-mouse game. You'll laugh and swear at your friends. In Paperbound, you play as characters who come from the pages of old tales. Inside Journey to the Center of the Earth, you discover the ability to have your gravity adapt to any curved surface as you run along it. The fight continues in four other books: Skull Kingdom, Cleopatra, Myth of the Ninja, and Inferno di Dante. Paperbound will feature several dozen maps, a plethora of playable characters, and multiple game modes such as deathmatch, soccer, chase mode, and capture the flag. Paperbound has received several awards and recognition from events and prominent sites such as Rock, Paper, Shotgun and Den of Geek.

March 31, 2015:
The Paperbound team is extremely happy to announce that Paperbound is now available for purchase on PS4 via PSN in North America and on Steam worldwide! The European PS4 version will be available next month. Also, in case you didn't hear the news, AI bots have been added to both the PS4 and Steam versions of the game. The inclusion of these skillful bots allows solo players to enjoy
the experience and is also great for simply filling out additional slots--perfect for team games with an odd number of players. Each particular AI character has their own play style and personality. For example, Juan Aguacate is aggressive and prefers melee, while Ninjeddy is more cautious and makes
adept use of all available weapons. The bots also adapt to player skill level, and can be used in all game modes. We believe that players will find the bots to be a challenging and welcome addition to Paperbound when they play it either solo or with their friends!

About Paperbound:
Paperbound is a smash-up brawler that combines platforming, twitchy combat, and gravity redirection in a competitive couch multiplayer setting. Between one and four players (with AI bots added in the mix) run with scissors, walk on walls, and lob ink bombs in whimsical-yet-intense battles within the pages of old books. In addition to the 360 degrees of gravitational freedom, several other twists add to the tension and drama of a match, such as the "escape through the page tear" victory mechanic which brings a second phase to the combat and causes players to momentarily team up with their adversaries.

Paperbound looks really fun in a bizarre and wonderful way !

A small suggestion, perhaps you might introduce a link to your Kickstarter page in every news post so that it remains visible on the main page ? And add the Kickstarter demo to your download section on IndieDB ?

Good Luck.
