The clock is back an hour, the trees are turning yellow and brown and that can only mean one thing: autumn. The summer sun is gone for good and we need to be indoors more than ever because of the global pandemic. Fortunately, there is a game that allows you to completely escape that depressing weather: Paper Mario Origami King.
Paper Mario: Origami King
Don’t be put off by the title, as you don’t have to be an expert in Japanese folding origami. It does help if you’ve played Paper Mario games before, because then you know what to expect. However, it also works against you: certainly the beginning of this game throws a lot of dialogue screens and explanations at you. This means that the adventure starts somewhat slowly, but at the same time it offers you the opportunity to immerse yourself deeper and deeper in the funny world of Paper Mario.
Developer Intelligent Systems has been making Paper Mario games for a long time. It is the Mario series in which the world of the Nintendo hero is made of paper. Nice and flat. However, that is not the most characteristic of this series, because that is the humor. The characters of Mario are constantly being scoffed at and in any case there are many comical and funny moments that you can enjoy enormously despite the fact that it all mainly goes through speech bubbles.
