by Paper House

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.
