Papers, Please headed to iPad on 12th December

Rubber stamped for release.

Excellent indie game Papers, Please will be released for iPad on 12th December, creator Lucas Pope revealed via Twitter today.

Papers, Please first arrived for PC and Mac back in August last year, and earned itself a number of accolades for its thought-provoking puzzle mechanics.

The game sees you play as a border control agent for an Eastern Bloc country, and forces you to balance formal immigration checks with the emotional guilt-trip of turning away the starving and needy.

"It's hard to call such a nerve-shredding experience 'fun'," Dan Whitehead wrote in Eurogamer's Papers, Please review, "but it is absorbing, brilliantly written and causes you to question your every instinct and reaction - both in the game and in real life."
