Vicarious Publishing, a new game publisher from “the award-winning company” Vicarious PR, has announced its first-ever title My Beautiful Paper Smile, a psychological horror game about children trapped in a facility raising them to be “perfect.” It will be released in 2020.
The look of this indie game is interesting. The in-game world has been made from paper and uses pencils for the features and details. It definitely looks creepy. And even though I’m not a big fan of horror games, I think this title will appeal to those who are.
