My Beautiful Paper Smile Final Chapter Released
My Beautiful Paper Smile dropped its final chapter yesterday on Steam. This marks the fourth chapter into the atmospheric thriller developed by Two Star Games. A mad king has ordered the player character to always wear a mask. Showing emotions can spell their doom.
The dystopian thriller features hand-drawn imagery, giving it an eerie, unnerving vibe. All of it, from characters to objects to locations, is pencil art. Not only is there a mystery involving the player, but the world itself brings up a number of questions through environmental storytelling. Minimalist sound design means that what you do hear (and, perhaps, what you don’t) is important and relevant to the atmosphere.
In addition to My Beautiful Paper Smile’s focus on worldbuilding and story, there are a number of gaming genres which diversify gameplay. One minute, you could engage in combat with giant monstrous spiders. The next, you could try to hide from the authorities and avoid capture. Beneath all of it, however, is a lurking feeling of dread and entrapment.
Find My Beautiful Paper Smile on the official Steam page. From there, you can Wishlist and follow the latest news. It has a slight discount now at 10% off, but it will be 25% off for Steam’s upcoming Halloween Sale. Don’t forget to check out the spooky trailer the team dropped yesterday for the full release. It’s pretty intense.
