Ragnarok Online Developers
Make Paper FPS on 1UP.com
(thanks Mike Martinez) announces Paperman, a new PC first-person
shooter in the works at Gravity (Ragnarok Online). Details are scant at this
point, but they have an outline of what will make the game different:
an attempt to create a different atmosphere than the typical military or science
fiction-themed FPS, Paperman is a 3D FPS where everyone is made out of 2D paper!
Characters in the game will have a Parappa the Rapper-style 2D cutout appearance
as they move around in the 3D environment. When shot, the paper beings will
become full of holes like in the classic comic books, fold in half, or burst
into fire. Basically the way the paper people react should give a feeling of
fighting living paper. According to Gravity, the game will be a new style of FPS
that's very original and tons of fun.
