A downloadable demo

Welcome, dear child, to your new home. Here you shall learn the art of perfection.  Here you shall learn to smile.

---First two chapters are coming to Steam on June 19!---

Story

My Beautiful Paper Smile is set in a dystopian world where a mad king wants every child to be perfect. Perfection to him is a giant, happy, smile that is worn constantly. Never fading and always bright.

You are one of the Joyous, a child taken by the Authorities, who has only ever known the facility and the mask that he wears bearing a smile that doesn’t dull. The Joyous are watched by the Authorities and kept on a short leash as they are tested daily to ensure no other emotions populate in their subjects' minds other than happiness.

If sadness sits on their face they are taken away and never seen again.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This demo includes half of the first chapter of My Beautiful Paper Smile.  The game takes place across four chapters. The first two chapters will be available to play on the Early Access Launch on June 19. The third chapter will release during early access and the final chapter will be available on full launch.

This game was amazing. It really hit me hard to be honest. I am usual not someone who plays Horror games so if your interested then you can check my video. Also I am not sure what happened, but my settings always reset, which was a bit annoying.
I only say my poor voice and heart.


Hi yopta! this is the most scary and fascinating 2D game I ever seen. But there are some bugs that ruin atmosphere of the game. For exemple the log that I can take from behind the wall. But still it's the frickin best 2D horror game.

This was a great, terrifying game that had me scared and tense throughout the whole gameplay. One part I definitely won't forget is when I tried to remove the mask and that slight jump-scare happened, I jumped out of my seat LOL! Also gave me lots of Bendy vibes. Loved it!

If you just want to watch gameplay without any reacting or commentary this video will be perfect for you

And if you did enjoy it please leave a LIKE and show the video some love by commenting or if you want to leave some tips on how to improve the video and gameplay.

It looks a little bit like Bendy...THIS IS VERY GOOD!!!!!

A lot of people do say that, but I'm glad you like it :)

I absolutely LOVED My Friend Is a Raven and was so excited to hear this demo was out, I've played through a few minutes of it and will DEFINITELY be streaming the whole demo and whole game when it releases.  You guys are AMAZING

Very cool to hear!  Thanks for the support!

(+1)

I Played this Demo in my latest episode of 'Quick Scares' on my Youtube channel and I absolutely loved it! The art style is magnificent! I may have to play the full release when it drops!

Below is my playthrough

(+1)

It's like looking in a mirror!

Haha, almost :)  Thanks for checking it out!

(+1)

It's an awesome game! I'm excited for the full release. :{)

(+1)

Such an awesome experience! I loved doing this game play video and will be looking forward to making a continuation to this video. Shout out to the creator. Cheers!

The game looks amazing, but it's very laggy on my computer and it keeps crashing within 5 minutes of opening the game..

(+2)

Sorry to hear that!  If you haven't already, it might be worth lowering the graphics settings in-game to help the performance :)

That'd be a good solution if it didn't crash while I attempt to do that.. ^^" 
Thank you for the suggestion though!

LOVED IT!!! I cant wait for more! The subs highly enjoyed it as well. I hope they snag it up from steam too.  

(+1)

Very disturbing but beautiful at the same time. Great job devs. Check out my great footage of the game be sure to like, subscribe and show support If you enjoy thanks.

So atmospheric and creepy!

The narrative is really cool and the art style just adds to it in so many ways! I love it!

This game is actually really creepy, not just because there are jump scares or anything like that, but the fact that this in all essence mimics reality in more ways than one. The fact that our society really isn't too far from the reality these people live in. Look forward to the full release as I really want to know what horrors awaits our protagonist. 

(+1)

This game is amazing... I genuinely believe that this will be the next horror game to get people talking and terrified! Also a massive thank you for making the Unreal Menu tutorials that helped me complete my own projects in time :D

Thanks!  I sure hope it is haha :)  And I'm really glad those tutorials helped you out!

(+1)

Just played the demo after watching Markiplier's playthru on YouTube...and BLOODY HELL if I didn't immediately fall in love with it. The art style is so unique and the creepy factor goes from 0-11 in a heartbeat. Can't wait for the full game.

So glad Mark was able to check it out!  Glad you liked it, and thanks for the support!

theres a way to play the demo on window mode? in my 21:9 it makes a zoom and cut part of the gameplay

Sorry, there is not in the demo.  That setting has been added for the full game, but unfortunately I don't think I'll have time to add it to the demo before we release.  Sorry again for the inconvenience!

its ok, just hope to see the full version of the chapters with that option, i dont want to lost some view ones i start to play it

For sure.  I've actually added a windowed mode option to the full game, so if you do play it on Steam, you'll have that feature :)

(+2)

This game is creepy and one of the best I can't wait for it to go on steam so i can play it on my channel. My experience to this game was amazing , There were good scares and was a challenge , the developers of this game definitely made something great and i can't wait to see more.  

 good job developers >3 

Thank you so much, means a lot!  Hope you enjoy the rest as well!

(+1)

It's... creepy, it's really creepy. I like the art-style and the idea behind it is very interesting. It'd be cool to see what a full game looks like, if i could manage to make it through without crapping my pants.

Yeah, the art and making sure it's creepy have taken a big effort.  Hope to see you again when the full game it out :)

(+1)

I absolutely LOVE the art style, and would love to play the whole game!
I can't wait to see what comes after chapter 1!
 

(+1)

Thank you!  Really hope you enjoy what's to come :)

(+1)

I am loving the story of this. I cant wiat to find out more. Especially who the lost child is and the king. 

(+1)

Glad you like it!  Thanks for the video :)

Wonderful game again, guys! As usual, the art style is fantastic and well suited to the tone. I really like the world building so far. It was sparse but kept me engaged, not too much reliance on notes, leaning into exploration and environmental exposition instead. Looking forward to what's to come!

My main issue, which could just be me, is the game was way too dark and with not enough contrast between the shadows and light, making a lot of the details muddy. The dialogue text in particular appeared almost faded and washed out, making it difficult to read.

So I hope to see a little more balance in those levels so the whole style can really pop and things are clear. Also possibly better visual cues to when you're going to be spotted or when the darkness is going to take over since sometimes I wasn't sure. Beyond that, it's shaping up great and I'm excited for the full release. Good luck with development!

Thanks for the feedback, and thank you for playing!

(+1)

Incredible game. I loved every second of it! The artstyle, the animation style and the story is INCREDIBLE! This game has to be one of the best games that I have played in so long. I wish there were more games like this! (ik My friend is a raven Another phenomenal experience) Thank you for this masterpiece. Cant WAIT for it's full release! Cheers! SPOILER ALERT (you can check out the video to see the gameplay!)

(+1)

I'm still so in love with the papercraft style. I have so many questions about the tickets, but I don't think they could be answered without spoilers. Good job hiding the black ones, though.

(+1)

GREAT WORK ON MAKING THIS GAME, excited to purchase the full game to play it!!
(+1)

Don't you worry Pete, I'll save you! hahaha As most have said, fantastic game so far! It's the perfect concoction of art style, creepiness, and demonic vibes. I also love how it's a bit more open with room to explore than compared to My Friend is a Raven. Nice touch with 8-bit Ryan artwork as well (if that's him lol)! Keep on doing what you do Two Star Games because it is AWESOME!

Great work!

(+1)

just what I needed haha

(+1)

Not gonna lie, its insanely creepy. I like a game that it is like this.



Thanks!

Unsettlingly creepy. Gods those smiles, I loved how much I just HATED it. And the puzzle WHILE being chased? Intense.
