When playing, you will become an immigration officer who decides whom is allowed in Arstotzka, the communist country where the title is set.

You will become an immigration officer who decides who is allowed in Arstotzka, the communist country where the title is set
With regards to the plot, you will be told that Arstotzka has just emerged from a war that lasted 6 years. This war was against the neighboring city of Kolechia, which reclaimed part of the border town, Grestin. This way, your job will be control the people who enter your country from the Kolechian side of Grestin. The vast majority will be normal people, but be careful because amongst the hundreds of people who want to enter there are spies, smugglers and even terrorists.
To avoid these intruders, you must carefully inspect all credentials, note irregularities, etc. In addition, as the days go on, the game will become more difficult since new technologies and techniques to catch intruders are introduced. Besides, the more people you process, the more money you earn for taking care of your family, so you cannot be relaxed and of course, you are not allowed to have a break.
In Papers, Please you will have two game modes you are free to play: the Story mode and the Endless mode. In the Story mode, as mentioned above, you will have to check out all the papers of the applicants. At first, it will be very easy since only Arstotzkan people can enter in the country, but as the story goes on, more procedures and more people with some special features can enter. You will rely on a rulebook in which all the features for entering the country are written, and it is automatically updated when a new features is allowed. In addition, you will be reprimanded if you make a mistake, and you can also help people.
The Endless mode is quite similar since your job is to check out papers again and again. You can play it in three different courses: Timed, Perfection and Endurance. In the first one, you will have ten minutes to check out the papers of as many people as possible to get points. Each mistake removes 30 seconds to the total time. The perfection course has no time limit, but it ends when you earn a citation. Finally, in the Endurance course you are given a certain amount of points. You can earn more points as you process people, but if you receive a citation, some points are removed. The game ends when you run out of all points.

The game puts us in the shoes of an officer of the frontier that, in 1982, the imaginary communist republic Kolechia Arstotzka with its neighbor, with which it has maintained a confrontation 6 years. So, by that very precise and fantastic as system is "the draw works" We have had to decide who goes and who does not to win enough money to keep our flat and family.
Every day we have 12 hours and we are different characters from different countries, who have to meet standards that give you earlier in the day to cross the border, but ultimately we are the ones who decide if they can pass or not (with the detail added that if we fail, we penalize someone watching us, which is already a criticism of the stupidity of the society in which we are). At first the rules are very simple (or are not Arstotzka), but gradually becomes complicated more and more, and we ended up on our desk officer with a surprising number of papers, documents and other necessities to tell if someone may or may not enter the glorious Arstotzka. Luckily, we have a tool that helps us to find inconsistencies slightly (as if we were talking about Phoenix Wright) and thus explain why immigrant shift for which he has been denied entry.
Under the number of passports that we have reviewed (whether accepted or not), charge at the end of that day, and we assure you that what is charged is quite little, so that will have to make some lace when feed the family and keep them warm, because rent the apartment no one can forgive us.
- The subtitle of "A documentary dystopian thriller" you feel in handy
- The game is entirely made by a person
- It is not a game for everyone
