The acclaimed indie puzzle game, Papers, Please by Lucas Pope was released back in 2013 for the PC, going on to win several awards and gaining a large fan base.
Today, the developer went on Twitter to announce an upcoming short film based on the game. Although not much information was revealed, Pope did share several production images, as well as announced the filmmakers behind the project, going by the names of Nikita and Liliya Ordynskiy. Pope also tweeted links to a couple of other projects by the duo.
For those unaware of the original game's premise, Papers, Please has players put in the role of an immigration officer who is tasked with keeping suspicious individuals and those without proper paperwork out of the fictional country, Arstotzka, at a border checkpoint. As the game progresses, more rules barring additional individuals from entering the country are added, frequently giving players the choice of helping people who are seemingly in need but with the risk of being caught by the government authorities.
The shared images do capture the game's grim nature quite well, with shots of what looks to be the main protagonist and the run-down room where the paperwork inspection mentioned above will take place.
Fans can expect more details to be unveiled as the film nears its yet to be announced release date.
