The adventure from Eric Chahi available on PC without a headset.
We are so happy today! Our game Paper Beast, originally designed for VR, is now coming on PC for every player. That means everyone will be able to play on their PC, with this “Flat screen” version we called “Paper Beast: Folded Edition”.
Paper Beast: Folded Edition includes all the latest updates of the VR version of the game, as well as reworked lighting. On top of that the game features all-new controls for mouse and keyboard and controllers that have been completely reworked from the ground up to provide the optimum experience on PC.
You can enjoy this experience with a mouse and a keyboard but also with a game controller!
Paper Beast is out now on Steam, Viveport and Oculus store.
Paper Beast is available for $19,99 / €19,99 and will launch with a 10% discount on Steam, Viveport and Oculus store for the first week.
“Paper Beast is a very immersive adventure game that has been designed for VR. You explore a believable and surrealistic natural world. You will be like in an awakened dream. Imagine a cocktail, with a bit of Dali, Lynch and BBC Planet Earth. Shake it! You got a kind of crazy universe to explore!”, says Eric Chahi, founder of Pixel Reef. “In VR you can feel it, for me it is really what VR can bring to players. The craziness of this adventure is more than a journey, more than a game, it becomes a piece of life, full of meaning”.
The PC version of the game will see a host of new features including continuous move support, upgraded visuals, gameplay tweaks and an expanded sandbox mode.
Our VR exploration and adventure game, Paper Beast, will be coming to Steam, Viveport and Oculus Store on July 24th at 19,99€/$. It’s compatible with Valve Index, Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, Windows Mixed Reality.
The PC version of the game will see a host of new features including:

In sandbox mode:

- Smoother gameplay
A special note from Eric Chahi:
“The PC version represents a more polished version of the game in almost all aspects but also offers continuous move support, which we are very proud of because we handled it without compromise. Special care was also given to the rendering of water and sand. You will be able to see the turmoil at the surface of the water, and the delicate flow of the sand. You’ll be able to dive even deeper into the fantastic world of Paper Beast”.
We also released a new dev diary video today about the technology behind the game. We give a behind-the-scenes look of the unique tech we made driving its complex ecosystem.
