Galaxy of Pen & Paper - Review

I had some spare time today, so I decided to throw together a quick review for "Galaxy of Pen & Paper" by Behold Studios.

It's a casual RPG with a focus on humor, and an even heavier focus on repetitive grinding.

Galaxy of Pen and Paper - Review @ Toucharcade

Galaxy of Pen & Paper Review

The original Knights of Pen & Paper was a goofy, grind-heavy RPG with a novel set-up that allowed it to poke fun at the many tropes of the genre. It painted over its repetitive mechanics with a sweet candy coating of enthusiastic charm and only slightly overstayed its welcome. In spite of its flaws, it was a great starting point both for the Pen & Paper concept and its developers Behold Studios. Oddly, the two went their separate ways when Behold opted to work on Chroma Squad instead of putting together a direct sequel to their popular game. The task of crafting Knights of Pen & Paper 2 fell to Kyy Games, and it's safe to say they didn't quite meet the expectations of many of the fans of the first game. Now, Behold is back to try their own follow-up to Pen & Paper. Instead of trying to reinvent the wheel with a similar setting, however, they've decided to take things to space with Galaxy of Pen & Paper.

[...]

Nevertheless, the core design of Galaxy of Pen & Paper represents a solid improvement over the original game. It has more new ideas and executes on them better than Knights of Pen & Paper 2 did. The production values feel a lot higher, too. Overall, you can feel the years of gained experience between the game that made Behold's name and their return to the brand. I just wish they would allocate more points into their bug-busting and difficulty balancing skills.
I suppose it says something that even with its flaws, I still think RPG fans definitely ought to check this one out.

Score: 4/5

Galaxy of Pen and Paper - Review @ GameZebo

by Hiddenx, 19:42

GameZebo has reviewed the Space RPG Galaxy of Pen and Paper:

Galaxy of Pen & Paper Review: Space… You Know the Rest

Let’s face it: when you say “RPG,” you’re almost certainly making it synonymous with “fantasy RPG.” We all do it, as swords and sorcery is more or less the default setting for role-playing. Yet there are many other worlds out there to explore, which is what Galaxy of Pen & Paper acknowledges in an excellent addition to the series that made meta-RPGs so much fun.

If you’ve played either Knights of Pen & Paper or its sequel, you should already have a feel for the set-up, which involves a group of friends coming together to play a tabletop RPG which then ends up as the game you actually play. Space is the place for the questing this time around, and as the meta-game year has moved up to 1999, the graphics and audio have stepped it up a notch as well.

[...]

The humor is also more subtle than before, though it’s fresher because it’s taking aim at a whole new segment of pop culture. Galaxy of Pen & Paper may not fill you with exactly the same delight as Knights did when it first came out, but it’s a welcome way to extend the fun and probably the most logical direction to go after two journeys into fantasy. Space, we welcome your vastness and look forward to taking these new quests as far as they go.

Score: 4/5
