The self-described “dystopian document thriller” Papers, Please is getting a brand new cell port for iOS and Android, out on August fifth as a paid, standalone app.
The information was introduced on Twitter by the sport’s indie developer Lucas Pope. Papers, Please was initially launched for PC in 2013, with an iPad-only version launched in 2014, and PlayStation Vita port in 2017.
On Twitter, Pope joked that the sport was now “On track for a console release in 2031.”

When the sport launched in 2013, Pope instructed The Verge that Papers, Please was impressed by his frequent journeys by immigration “and the realization that inspecting documents in a game setting might be fun.” The sport takes place within the fictional Soviet state of Arstotzka, with the participant staffing an immigration counter and tasked with checking vacationers’ paperwork in opposition to an more and more convoluted algorithm and rules.
Responding to questions on Twitter, Pope stated the brand new cell port would have an interface constructed for smaller screens. “No zooming. My vision is terrible and I wanted the game to feel natural on a phone,” he said.
He added that the sport can be out there as an replace to the 2014 iPad app, and that iOS 11 can be the minimal supported OS. It’s not clear what the requirement will likely be for Android or how a lot the sport will value.
