Paper Pilgrim: The Crystal Case is a strange, stylish and funny first person puzzle adventure where you and your brother set out to investigate reports of people going missing in a nearby city.
Drawing inspiration from classic point and click adventures, Paper Pilgrim: The Crystal Case is a first person point and click adventure set in a wonderfully weird paper world. In the game you take on the role of a detective who is investigating the disappearance of the citizens of Crystal City. Something strange is going in in the city and you’ll get to the bottom of it, along with your brother (who is also part of your investigation team, but you do most of the work while he hangs out in a bar!)
Paper Pilgrim: The Crystal Case plays very much like a modern first person reinterpretation of a classic Lucasarts point and click game. You explore the beautifully crafted paper world, search for useful items, chat to NPCs, discover secrets and solve puzzles. Some puzzles require you to use certain items with objects or people, while other puzzles require a little problem solving and code cracking. There’s a wide variety of puzzles to discover as you explore the world and experimentation is encouraged and usually throws up a fun little easter egg.
The current build of Paper Pilgrim: The Crystal Case takes around 1-2 hours to play through and it’s a delightful little adventure. A lot of care has clearly gone into crafting the world and it’s full of clever puzzles, stylish visuals and fun little gags that make your smile. It’s the characters that are the star of the show though – each one has their own quirky personality and pretty much every one of them will make your smile or laugh in some way. Highly recommended.
