The World of PS VR–Exclusive PAPER BEAST Comes to Life in This Enchanting Launch Trailer

Paper Beast is available on PlayStation VR, giving fans of Éric Chahi's previous work (the artist also directed Another World, Heart of Darkness and From Dust) the chance to experience a strange odyssey through a wild and simulated ecosystem.

That's right, the colourful world of Paper Beast is a simulation created from the remnants of the internet.

Currently sitting at a great 81% score on Metacritic, Paper Beast is yet another fantastic adventure that PS VR owners shouldn't miss — as the next major PS VR exclusive, Marvel’s Iron Man VR, is coming on May 15.

"The main challenge [during production] was to create a home-made physics engine that suits our needs. We wanted creatures to have fully simulated locomotion. We started by working on the sandbox for two years, which gave us the foundation of the engine," Chahi said in an interview with the PS Blog. "Then, we worked on level design. We were looking for large environments with lots of landscape elements. As we progressed, we zeroed in on a balance between design and technology."

Without further ado, be sure to take a closer look at the ever-changing Paper Beast universe down below:

Somewhere deep down in the vast memory of a data server, an ecosystem has emerged. Decades of lost code and algorithms have accumulated in the eddies and flows of the Internet. A small bubble of life has blossomed. Paper Beast is born.

Paper Beast is currently available on PS VR.
