About

The hero in this game is called Paperman, a tiny guy made out of, surprise, paper! His job is to deliver one person´s dreams to another, making him some kind of dreamful mailman. But this tiny dude´s world is in danger: The dream world starts to drift apart, leaving our lightweight hero lost in rifts! Are you going to help him fix the dreamworld and bring people back their dreams?

But one Paperman alone might not be enough to fix the tears torn into the magic world, so grab three of your friends and glue it back together as a team! Or be quicker than your partners and take all the credit!

Do you miss the days when you where hanging out with your friends playing co-op games in your living room together? Yes? Then do not worry any longer! Because we are bringing couch co-op into your living room again.

With Super Paperman you and up to 3 of your friends can start playing the co-op madness you have been keeping in your memories all these years!

You don't have to wait until all of your friends are assembled: Other players can join or leave the game at any time.

Have you ever wondered why 3D games can offer you 2D platforming fun but 2D games don´t offer a third dimension? Well we thought so too and decided... screw that! We are doing a 2D game with another dimension.

By using foreground and background elements we add a whole lot of depth to the Super Paperman universe and give our players the chance to use various paths as their racing track.

So start smashing those controller buttons and race, jump, and wall-jump against or with your friends in 7 worlds with over 35 stages with fast-paced gameplay.

Cooperate with your friends or kick them out of the race: It's your choice! We only provide the game - how you play it is up to you.

Platformers have to be linear?

Not with us! You decide how you beat a stage. Take the same path as your friends, find a new way to avoid dangerous enemies by bypassing them in a foreground or background layer. Take a platform that catapults you over them. There's more than one way to the finish line - how you get there is up to you.

We do not provide just one way to play the game. You can take a different route than the one you tried the last time and discover hidden chambers, shortcuts or a dead end filled with enemies!

On what platform would you like to save the dream worlds? You've got plenty options to pick from because we are covering all of them. Windows, or Mac? Super Paperman will visit whatever flavor of PC you prefer. Want to take the console route? Wii U, PS4, or Xbox One - the choice is yours.

So what happens when we reach our goal and still get more money?

Do not worry we are not wasting any money on anything useless like office space or more income for us. Instead we will be spending those additional funds in getting stuff like a professional soundtrack, translating our game into other languages and many more things.

By now you are probably asking yourself what do you get for helping us fund our game. Take a look at the list below and choose a reward best fitting for you.

Oswald Weber (Programmer/Game Designer/Business guy)

I have been playing and dreaming about making video games since I was 4 years old. My entire life I have been growing up with those old school Sonic games. So since I am now creating my first commercial game why not make it the kind of game I would have played when I was still a child? How did I become a game developer? I simply did a Bachelor of Science in Virtual Reality, specialized in Game Development and programming and right after finishing university I became an Indie Developer. I also did not give up my dream about making video games for 21 years.

Olga Rudi (2D Artist)

I have been a traditional artist for over 25 years and have been supporting my son Oswald his whole life. At first I was against him studying Game Development. I even tried to talk him out of it. But seeing how passionate he followed his dreams. I some day just stopped protesting and let him go his path. Over time he even made me aware that games are not that bad and when he needed someone doing the art for his game Super Paperman I even joined the project.

Gina Vörde (2D Artist/Freelance)

Painting. Illustrating. Writing. That´s what I wanted to do when I was a child and do now for a living. I´m currently studying illustration and mediadesign in order to become concept artist in gaming industry. By participating in local developer meetups I met Oswald and recently joined his project as he needed one more artist to finish his unique Paperman universe. I only managed to finish yet unseen level concepts and these Kickstarter graphics so far, so please support us and get to see the rest! ;]

By now we have been working on Super Paperman for around one year. And even if we are not able to reach our designated budget we will still find a way to release Super Paperman on a smaller scale. But by supporting us in our Kickstarter campaign you will ensure that we can focus on the development of the game. And that we will make it bigger and better than we could without your support.

Getting a budget for making a video game in Germany is hard. Very hard. You either have to leave your independence as a Game Developer behind or you work only in your free time on your game. So finishing the game could take years longer. In fact we already compromised and worked for about a year on Super Paperman simply by living of our savings. But those are running out with time. So we decided to start a project at Kickstarter and raise the needed funds for the last year of development.

Risks and challenges

Working on old school game mechanics and doing stuff like couch co op are just a few of the challenges we are facing with Super Paperman. At worst we are going to delay the release of the game for a short timespan to polish the game. Should this happen we can assure you that we are only doing this to improve the game and make Super Paperman one hell of a fun game. For us financing and business problems are just one small stepping stone towards making a enjoyable game for you. Super Paperman is a project out of passion and we will make it so that you and all of your friends can enjoy it to the fullest.
