Part puzzle game, part god game, all extremely weird, Paper Beast is unlike anything I’ve played before. A dedicated VR experience, it puts you at the centre of a unique wildlife simulation where the animals are not flesh and fur, but origami creatures roaming a harsh desert world. It’s a fascinating and surprisingly emotional experience, albeit one that only scratches the surface of its potential.
