Lucas Pope, developer of Papers, Please, has been working on a new game called Return of the Obra Dinn for four and a half years. It’s about insurance and murders on 19th century ships and today he announced it will finally release on October 18 for PC and Mac.

The Papers, Please film adaptation now has a trailer. If you were wondering what a game about reading through documents would look like as a movie, the question has now be answered. Created by Nikita Ordynskiy with the full support of developer Lucas Pope, the short film is due out in 2018. 

I’m really looking forward to Return of the Obra Dinn, the next game from Papers, Please creator Lucas Pope. The version at PAX West is much improved from the early demo you may have played, with a much more extensive “ship’s log” interface that lets you keep track of all the murder mysteries you have to solve by
