Papers, Please: Multiplayer

#1 Posted by JasonLeeson (201 posts) -

  • Added pressure of having to out perform others, or face exile.
  • The worst performer at the end of the day is eliminated.
  • Once out, the player then becomes a person in the line, able to forge their papers as they see fit. (Must make equal amount of passes through each of the remaining player's checkpoints)

Could be pretty neat/this is completely ridiculous.

Actually looking at the info on this & seeing the quick look, seems quite interesting. Maybe not eliminate the people who are the worst performers but if they do not have enough money for rent/food/heat then they are put into the line to live with family. That way people have a fighting chance to get back & out perform the rest.

Not every game needs multiplayer.

I agree that not all games need multiplayer, but it would be kind of neat to either have a competitive mode like the picture or even a versus where one person runs the booth and the others are trying to trick the guy in the booth. Either way, this game is fantastic regardless!

So does this game go longer than 9 days now or whatever it used to be? Or is that just what the game is.

@sackmanjones: It's extended out quite a bit from the original demo.

I think this sentiment applies more to 'Bioshock Infinite doesn't need team deathmatch'. I thought this idea could be kinda neat. Please don't be so mean to me :(

A Tetris multiplayer-style game of Papers, Please sounds cool. I would play that game.

@audiobusting: Yes! This could totally happen. Perhaps even as DLC for the existing game.

If you've got several people in the room, Papers, Please is great for 'cooperative multiplayer' -- you could see some of this going on during the quick look. 'Okay, I'll sit at the computer and spread out the documents as soon as I can. I'll check the stuff on the passports; you check the work permits; you check the identity supplements. Shout if you see something. Glory to Arstotzka.'

I'm under enough stress as it is. My hair might turn grey if Lucas added this.

@jasonleeson Free DLC I hope...
