Description

Papergame is a new computergame experience with anachronistic hardware. This game uses a dot matrix printer as graphical output, that means the algorithm draws the gamescenario directly onto the paper. The developer selected the scrolling game genre to show the users the real process of one of the important game genres.
The developer intention on these project is to transform the game structure from the digital environment into the physical world. Instead of creating an illusionistic scene, papergame shows the technical reality frame by frame or even page by page.
The low velocity of the gameplay encourages the user to reflect the gameconcepts and the inherently structures.
