    Early stuff to show!

    Developed in collab with Mobot Studios (formerly Robots vs Wizards)

    We're shooting for sometime later this year, hopefully. :)

    Wow, wasn't expecting that! I liked the first one quite a bit. This will be an instabuy when it hits.

    i would like if we could get a sword and attack the monsters instead of just jumping on them.

    New costumes, Weapons, And even new FACES. like a sad face or angry face.. kinda tired of seeing that smile face

    I think almost anything could become (more) awesome by adding "this time in space!"

    Playing iOS games, duh.

    I played the original so long ago, but I remember feeling like it could have been so much more. Hopefully this version will be a more captivating experience with mechanics that will hold my interest.

    Loved the first one, great platformer with amazing visuals.

    Hope this is similar control wise, yep need a bit of variety from the first one but i'm sure the visuals will be stunning. Looking forward to this

    So they should make it into a side scrolling platformer rpg.

    A sidescrolling RPG like Swordigo but with this art style would be so amazing (plus it's in space!).

    Paper Monsters is a platformer, like super mario style, its not a side scrolling RPG.... we have some other games coming out that are more like side scrolling rpg's.

    Sorry, but RVW didn't do the art for Paper Monsters - Crescent Moon did. (which was partly my job)

    If you remember the history, Crescent Moon signed on to publish and help with the game in the early days, which included a full extreme makeover of all of the graphics.

    See article here:
    http://toucharcade.com/2011/05/12/upcoming-paper-monsters-received-a-crescent-moon-makeover/

    I did the Art direction of the game as well as designed the main character and general 'look', and David Hagemann (aka Toco Games) did all of the enemies and some props. We had a few other people working on environments and animations.

    HA! Thanks, glad you like the style. I wish I could take credit for that but, I'm just a programmer.

    also..
    Hint - look closely at the arm on box guy's space suit ;)
