Border Patrol is an upcoming first-person virtual reality take on Papers, Please (2013), putting you in the shoes of a booth operator at an AI travel border who must accept or deny entry to robots trying to enter the region.

Featuring some elements clearly borrowed from Papers, Please, you inspect potential entrants for contraband (which changes day by day) and cross compare to known dissidents and enemies of the state.

Created by Paw Print Games, the studio known for VR side-scrolling co-op brawler Bloody Zombies (2017), the studio has just released a playable pre-alpha demo.

Now available on Steam with support for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift, the demo gives an early preview, featuring a single day and giving an introduction to the robotic world.

    Cool demo, but I’ve never seen a title on steam with no ability to leave a review, and no discussion forum. Are they developer-optional or something?

    there is a Border Patrol Demo on Steam, but I can’t seem to see if there is a full version, or if they plan to develop one.
