A shaggy lonely dog embarks on a dangerous journey which can have two outcomes: the dog either will realise its wild nature, or it will trust people. The hero is vulnerable to the cruelty of this world, he has to survive. However, the dog is still able to see some vivid dreams.

Paper Bum is a dark adventure in a semi-realistic world, as if drawn by a sad child who has no crayons.

We're a beginner game studio from Russia which presents our game Paper Bum and we've decided to start from a dark theme. Now we're inventing semi-realistic world that looks like it was drawn by a sad child who haven't got crayons. Of course, there's maximum of hardcore - our game is hand-held penciled! Yeah, there's Mundaun-like, but our paintings become sprites and background without any processing.
