Paperman: First Paper Shooter

One of the few pieces of PC-related news to emerge from the Tokyo Game Show comes in the form of the extremely slick trailer for cartoon shooter, Paperman. It’s an arena-based multiplayer shooter, where the flat characters will be able to take advantage of their flat-physics in combat – such as being able to turn side-on to avoid incoming bullets.

The game is being developed by a Korean studio, Cykan Games, who are in turn part of the technology company, Gravity. They’re affiliated folks who developed one of the better Korean MMOs, the charming Ragnarok Online. They’re also developing Ragnarok 2, which has, rather mysteriously, been in and out of beta since December 2006.

Thanks, Game Trailers, you are best.

    Wasn’t there a UT2004 mod that had paper characters? Although I don’t think it was a shooter, more a survival/puzzle game…
