The PSVR game Paper Beast introduces a Sandbox Mode which offers players total freedom and creativity with an in-depth physics engine.
In Paper Beast’s Sandbox mode, players will be able to form and manipulate the environment, influence the weather and experiment with the deep physics engine. What’s amazing about Paper Beast is the way the creatures’ behaviours are profoundly dependent on the elements. Special focus is given to immersion and environmental simulation. Players can interact with eleven different hybrid animal species, as well as plants, geological elements, and even the sun.
“The Sandbox mode is the place for players’ creativity and experimentation. Imagine creatures creating dams and diverting water, but what happens if you freeze the water? It’s up to you to find out. For our part, we’ve discovered a lot of emergent behaviour while playing. I’m sure the gaming community will surprise us!”

Beyond Paper Beast’s sandbox mode, player will be able to solve environmental puzzles and follow an unspoken narrative. Paper Beast is set to launch on PlayStation VR in Q1 of 2020.
Paper Beast will make its North American demo debut at PAX East 2020 in Boston, Feb 27th – Mar 1st.
