“Flat Kingdom Paper’s Cut Edition” Coming to Consoles on 1 April
Indie publisher Ratalaika Games recently announced that Flat Kingdom Paper’s Cut Edition is coming to PS4, PS5, Xbone, SeXbox and Nintendo Switch on Friday, 1 April.
Developed by Fat Panda Games, Flat Kingdom Paper’s Cut Edition has been available via Steam PC for several years. The game combines 2D action and puzzle solving as your hero fights to prevent a three-dimensional invasion on a two-dimensional world.
Here’s the official breakdown of Flat Kingdom from Ratalaika Games:
Flat Kingdom is best described as an action platformer filled with puzzle-styled combat in which you’ll have to switch shapes in order to gain different abilities to progress.
Akin to rock, paper, scissors style combat, each shape beats the opposite. Sharp triangles can defeat the soft circles, heavy squares beat the fragile triangles and squishy circles can triumph over the slow squares. Both enemies and puzzles can be beaten using the correct shape and strategy, so you’ll have to observe them and come up with the best solution.
Immersive gameplay as you explore different detailed worlds with confrontations against dangerous enemies. Huge bosses are waiting for you, but remember with three shapes you can beat them all!
A long time ago, the Flat Kingdom was threatened by the wicked Third dimension. Just when all hope was lost, a wise sorcerer appeared and created six magical jewels, keeping the dimensions stable and restoring the peace. But one day, the masked thief Hex kidnapped the princess, also taking one of the jewels with him. That caused the 3D chaos to come back, putting the Kingdom in serious danger again.
When everything seemed to be lost, King Square thought about the only one who could fix this mess. His name was Flat, a little but brave 2D doodle-like creature that had the ability to change shapes at will, that way he can overcome all kinds of obstacles and beat the geometric foes.
