The Great Paper Adventure (TGPA) is a French Shoot Them Up game developped with Microsoft's XNA framework by Valryon (Project leader, main developper), LapinouFou (Graphics), Aymarick (iPad version) and Minishlink (Xbox360 dev and tests). The nameless hero has to go through every level, killing everything that is on his way with many different weapons (Machingun, Flamethrower, things-launcher, etc). The Game has funny papered graphics and awesome chiptune music.

The full PC version is available here :
Texts in French and English.

If you like the music, please listen to Spintronic others creation at

I hope you will enjoy playing the game !

Hello, folks!
It's been a while since The Great Paper Adventure is over.
However, I'm still an active developer and you may be interested by my new shoot them up project.

It's called Steredenn and we just created a fresh new IndieDB page for it:

Don't miss the brutal teaser and be ready for a much more difficult shooter!
Stay tuned.

You guys must be on crack. Or maybe it's LSD or crystal meth. Maybe the three at once ?

Nice job there, the drawings are really charming.

Just downloading it now, looks really good - I absolutely love indie games and this looks to be no exception to that rule. I'll comment and/or review after having played ^^
From what I can see so far, the graphics do look awesome!

The game looks good, but you might want to use a drawing of smoke instead of practicals to give it a more cartoon like look. Same with the fire. Still, impressive.

Well, the may demo is "only" in french, so you may not understand some jokes, but menus are in english and I think the game is really playable if for a non-french reader.

Final release will include a multi language support, with at least English, French, Spanish and probably German languages :)

Coop mode is hot-seat only, but I'll try to make it interesting, and not only a "one more player on the screen" mode. (If you have ideas... :p)

Love the little guy in the ship. Very cute! The blue octopuses look very similar to a Sonic Octus, but I really like the hand drawn graphics. Best of luck with it. :)

Thank you !
Fun fact : The little guy in the ship is a kind of super deformed representation of his drawer :)
