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.
Paperbound surprised many at PAX East with its frantic gameplay and striking art.
