    Whilst a little tricky at times, Paper Beast is an experience every PSVR owner should play at some point as it is quite simply a one-of-a-kind experience. Pixel Reef and Eric Chahi create a gorgeous ecosystem where animals, plants, natural resources, and the elements all work harmoniously to keep one another alive. All of this is done with incredibly complex and beautiful paper creatures that you will marvel at as they walk on by you in the dry deserts and cold tundras. And, when the simulation you are in is over, you might come away valuing the life on Earth in reality, just a little bit more.

    An exclusive experience like no other, a beautiful statement on the natural world and the influence technology can have on it.

    My time with Paper Beast left me in awe. While I cannot claim to fully understand what it is that I experienced while playing this game, I’m glad that I did experience it. I would encourage others to experience it as well.

    Paper Beast is a short and simple puzzle game, but it has a wonderful world, just beautiful, full of creatures to interact with, and it has a very smart and important message about the humans and their relation with nature. Fascinating.

    Paper Beast is a VR puzzle adventure with several original mechanics and a great atmosphere, but also some very cumbersome controls.

    Paper Beast is a VR game that takes advantage of the technology's unique possibilities. When we put on the headset, we are transported to a completely different world, filled with beautiful views, a strange wildlife and clever puzzles. Unfortunately, we are also met by some muddy environments, limited controls and a few puzzles that cause more frustration than joy. In the end, Paper Beast is a different and fascinating experience, but the we miss the last bit of polish.

Even with the abstract art style, which looks great, watching the creatures interact in their own eco-system feels authentic, and while the game gives you no clear instruction on what to do, its masterfully designed to lead you in the right direction. It's kind of like being a VR David Attenborough while problem solving environmental road blocks in a surreal world. Needs to be experienced. Truly unique. Expand

    Wonderful experience. Surreal and magical from start to finish, it's an emotional roller coaster without saying a word.
    It's a little on the short side, but the sandbox mode is an amazing addition that can definitely extend it's length if you're into that.
    One of the most incredible experiences I've had on VR
