Vicarious PUblishing is a new games publisher from the award-winning company Vicarious PR, and they have announced their first title: My Beautiful Paper Smile. This upcoming game is a psychological horror title about children trapped in a facility, being raised to be “perfect”. Players in My Beautiful Paper Smile control “Joyous”, a child in this operation to make all children perfect, by always smiling. The protagonist doesn’t appreciate what’s done here and wants to escape.
Through the four-chapter series, players will learn about the children’s imprisonment, and undertake thrilling puzzles in this eerie, supernatural setting.
Michael Brown, CEO of Vicarious Publishing had this to say about the title:
“My Beautiful Paper Smile will touch everyone when they play through it as it takes on sensitive issues we all acknowledge but never talk about. This title puts childhood experiences of mental health into perspective with horror environments.”
