Upcoming Games

‘Papers, Please’ Comes to the App Store This Friday

TouchArcade Rating:

If you haven’t played Papers, Please, I don’t really blame you as it’s a PC/Mac game and this is (obviously) an iOS site. It’s a real weird game that’s hard to describe. The core of it is the incredibly repetitive task of checking passports in a dystopian future. Things happen though, which I’m really reluctant to spoil on any level, which make the game remarkably interesting.

Here’s the trailer:

I totally dug Papers, Please when I played it on my PC, but much like FTL ($9.99), playing it felt like it should be running on my iPad instead. Well, good news:

The above image is all the details we’re working off of. It’s definitely running on an iPad, and it’s hard to say if it’ll be on the iPhone or not. The good news is, we won’t have to wait long. It’s coming this Friday the 12th, but it wouldn’t surprise me if it shows up earlier as that’s just sort of the way things go on the App Store when people are shooting for a specific date.

Thanks for the tip, Justin!

Update: Additional details have come out on Twitter, it’ll be iPad only, and there’ll be no nudity.
