Paperbark is a game that tells a charming short story of the bush, a wombat and a very hot Australian Summer.
It presents a sincere representation of Australian bushland which is inspired by
iconic historical and contemporary landscape artists and Australian children’s literature.
The player follows a sleepy wombat who spends its day exploring and
foraging, while in search for a new home.
As the story unfolds and new locations are discovered, the adventure builds
with the heat of the day.
The game has been created as a love letter to wandering through the bush
and will resonate with anyone who grew up in Australia or is interested in it.
