Paper Beast: Enhanced Edition is an adventure game that offers a unique blend of first-person view and puzzle-solving gameplay. The game features an opening calibration for audio, tutorial-like prompts, and a fascinating world to explore. You walk around, grab items, swing/throw them around, and help paper beasts navigate the world.

The game also includes a full physics system and fantastic-looking creatures. However, the game has some drawbacks. It loses a lot of its wow factor outside of VR, there are invisible walls, and there’s no help with what needs to be done. Despite these issues, Paper Beast: Enhanced Edition is a unique experience that rivals a Journey or an Abzu game. Yes, you lose some of the wow moments outside of VR but even then you still get sucked into the world, and it is a fascinating experience.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
