Play an immigration officer in Papers, Please
is the latest from Lucas Pope, creator of unsettling developing world newspaper sim The Republica Times
. A "dystopian document thriller", Papers
simulates the pleasure of immigration inspection in a grim Soviet-style republic: "Among the throngs of immigrants and visitors looking for work are hidden smugglers, spies, and terrorists. Using only the documents provided by travelers and the Ministry of Admission's primitive inspect, search, and fingerprint systems you must decide who can enter Arstotzka and who will be turned away or arrested."
