An RPG That's Drawn Entirely On Paper (And Not A Mario In Sight)

This game was made by one man. And is entirely hand-drawn. Using actual paper and ink.


Jesse Gallagher is the developer/artist behind Paper Sorcerer, a successful Kickstarter project that's due later this year on iOS and Android.

It's an old-school RPG, but it's the art that's got me leaning closer, not the genre. Gallagher tells Pocket Tactics that “All the graphics are hand-drawn high resolution sprites and textures."

"The game doesn’t use any cel-shading, all the visuals are manually done. I started by drawing them all traditionally on paper with pencil, pen, and ink.”

Wow. Just. Wow.

You can play a demo of the game on the developer's website, below.

For the love of God, sidestep! Watching him navigate with only forward/backward/left/right was painful.

It looks pretty neat overall. I dig a good dungeon crawler and the addition of the "outside" bits adds a lot.
