Paperbound is a smash-up brawler with wacky, frenetic, gravity-defying combat inside works of classic literature. Play as characters drawn from these books or as popular indie game characters who jumped off the pages of a video game magazine.
Your gravity direction changes independently of the other players' as you run along curved surfaces to find the perfect angle. Then invert your gravity to fly across the arena at lightning speed in this single-screen, local-multiplayer, book-based brawler.
Up to four players run with scissors, walk on walls, and lob ink bombs in whimsical-yet-intense battles within the pages of epic tales and ancient texts. Play with AI bots when you're not schooling your friends.
Paperbound's classic books include:
A Journey to the Center of the Earth
A Book of Five Rings
The Book of the Dead
Compete in team or solo battles in a variety of game modes that will keep you laughing and screaming for hours:
Capture the Quill
Last Man Standing
Long Live the King
NOTE: Paperbound is meant for up to four players to play on the same machine using gamepads. Networked play is not currently supported.

Surprisingly fun co-op experience! Only downsides are: - Short campaign - Local only co-op - Some maps are not very fun/playable - Lack of tutorial for controls, shows controller keys by default. - Slowest cards i've gotten so far Some great laughs at all the messy fighting in small maps :) 9/10
Paperbound is a brawler taking place is arena with strange gravity. You play as characters from books or indie games and you must slash your foes in fast-paced combat. You'll need a few minutes to get used to the controls but then it will a blast to play. The game contains both single player (with coop available) and multiplayer modes. There are seventeen characters to play and the visuals are pretty neat. However, the game lacks online multiplayer. Paperboud reminds me of Towerfall Ascension but with an emphasis on melee combat. It's fun and well designed.
