Thunderful & Space Lizard Studios are delighted to announce that their mysterious cardboard cut-out thriller, Paper Cut Mansion, is set to be released on 27th October 2022 for PC, Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One. PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 versions will follow soon after.

In Paper Cut Mansion you play as Toby, a police detective arriving at the road leading to the eponymous old mansion. You will need to put those detective skills to the test as you seek to unfold the story behind this ominous place, with each run giving you the opportunity to collect another piece of evidence to be tacked on the Evidence Board.

An intriguing cast of characters will be met along your journey through the mansion and may help or hinder you: some will offer you quests that can earn you helpful rewards, some will try to hide and some have more malicious intent toward you.

In each unique run, you will unlock new abilities and discover new equipment. This will offer you the opportunity of defining your own playstyle, in addition to giving you a better chance of overcoming the challenges each procedurally generated attempt throws your way. Intrigue is further added through a dimension-hopping mechanic that lets you leap between alternate versions of the same location that switch up the aesthetics and gameplay.
