Heart. Papers. Border. is an optimistic strategy game about travelling, freedom and changing the world. You are a freelance adventurer who wants to experience everything planet Heart has to offer, regardless of the inherited privileges determined by the country of your birth, and by the bureaucracy you encounter while crossing so many borders. You travel to learn, and as you pay a closer attention to what each country has to offer, you gather wisdom that you channel in a blog that grows in popularity. Eventually you come to grasp the power of your influence: where you pass, things change to the better, and locals that you have met increasingly demand openness from their governments. You have always been an optimist and dreamed of a completely border free world, but as you travel, you realise your influence could make your dream come true in your lifetime.


Heart. Papers. Border. was born as a concept in spring 2016 and full development started in the autumn of the same year. We intend to develop Heart. Papers. Border. with full transparency and as a long term service.
