Codex Gamicus

Papetura is a point-and-click adventure game developed and published by Petums. This game was released on Steam for Microsoft Windows on May 7, 2021.


Papetura tells a story about lonely paper creature Pape, trapped in a flowery prison. One day Pape escapes and finds little Tura, a magical being that he’ll take care of. Together they will have to face dark and flaming monsters which will try to burn down their beloved paper world.


The game was being developed for many years, inspired by old classic games like The Neverhood, Machinarium, movies of studio Ghibli, and fascination with architecture and paper sculptures. The game was handcrafted entirely out of paper, by Tomasz Ostafin, the main creator of the game, with the two other people from the team being Tomas Dvorak (Floex), the music artist, and Juraj Mravec, the sound designer.
