Paperbound is a smash-up brawler from the mind of a former Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare developer that combines platforming, twitchy combat, and gravity redirection in a competitive couch multiplayer setting. Experience 360 degrees of gravitational freedom as 1-4 players run with scissors, walk on walls, and lob ink bombs in whimsical-yet-intense battles within the pages of old books. Local multiplayer only.

Play as one of Paperbound's 11 original characters or as characters from Guacamelee, Monaco, VVVVVV, Cards and Castles, or Tumblestone.

Paperbound features challenging AI bots that adapt to your skill level. Each character has his or her own personality. The bots are great for solo players or just for extra chaos.

Fight in arenas from classics including…

A Journey to the Center of the Earth
Skull Kingdom
A Book of Five Rings
The Book of the Dead
Dante's Inferno

Compete in a variety of free-for-all and team game modes:

Classic Versus
Capture the Quill
Last Man Standing
Long Live the King
