Paper Boats is a small, experimental game about sharing and contemplating. There's not much to do, no enemies to kill or puzzles to solve. You can just look around, interact with the things around you and take screenshots.
Every once in a while, though, a paper boat will come sailing and stop in front of your dock, carrying a message for you, written by a stranger. Maybe it's a kind word of encouragement, or somebody emptying their worries into the void.
Good thing is that you can also send a message in your own paper boat, and let it sail for a stranger to read.
When you need a small break from reality, you can just hang around on the dock, watch the day go by and read messages from strangers.
this game is just perfect, the fact that you can write a positive message to someone, vent about something that has been bothering you or write poems (which is my case) without knowing who will receive it, and still receive a letter from someone else completely randomness is very mysterious and relaxing at the same time, apart from the landscape of the game of course. one thing I would like to see implemented would be a playlist of songs that would match the game's environment, if they put this on while sitting on the stool in the back waiting for a letter it would be even more amazing
And i'm a brazilian so if the text above have something written wrong sorry, i'm not that good at english so i used google translate a little
Thanks for your comments, I'm really glad you enjoyed the game =] Currently there's no plans to expand on this specific project, but I'm open to revisit the concept of message exchanging in the future again :D
I meet this game and this platform by a brazilian youtuber called Tropia. I have never ever seen a kind of game like this before and I liked a lot. There is a lot of potential. My suggestion is create a system where you can send letters specifically to a person.
Thanks =] I wanted to keep the scope real small with this one in order to see it through, hence there's no walking or further exploration. My plan is that my next projects will offer more in terms of interaction and movement!
So peaceful... kind thoughts and calm, clean environments are always refreshing! Thanks for this!
