You might have noticed that I don’t review brand new games from big game companies. There’s good reasons for that.

I’ve followed Hank Green on YouTube for years, so when he recommended a word game the other day, I got my phone out and installed it immediately.

I've seen this game around the Steam platform for some time, and it keeps being suggested to me as something I would enjoy. So the algorithm had it right, and here I am playing Buddy Simulator 1984. It's not what I expected. Elements of cozy psychological horror and grief make it more than just a retro game.

"Throw your toys into your fire, and play with them as they burn. An adventure that takes place almost entirely in front of a fireplace - about looking up up up out of the chimney, and the cold world just on the other side of the wall. From the creators of World of Goo and Human Resource Machine."

In the game “Papetura,” you play a piece of paper named Pape. There's not a lot of explanation as to why you're a piece of paper. Perhaps this is what beings look like in this paper world - because everything in this game is made out of paper. A dark adversary follows you and has the power of fire, which threatens to burn your world. Your quest is to save the world, with your companion, Tura.
