SVRVIVE has announced that their ‘creepy cute’ stealth shooter, Kartong – Death by Cardboard! will leave Early Access on April 4th, 2018. The game first released for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift back in October last year and has since gotten many positive reviews from players on the Steam platform, as well as critics.
“We’re so excited to soon finally reveal the full experience of Kartong to our community and the world. We’ve been getting tons of great ideas and feedback over the past few months, and the full release will bring major updates to the story, environments, enemies, and achievements” said Nils Von Heijne, Creative Director & Co-Founder of SVRVIVE Studios in a statement.
Kartong – Death by Cardboard! takes place in a miniature cardboard city called Kartong. You’ve been shrunk down to the size of a guinea pig by a mysterious YouTuber called Sven and placed in his self-made city along with creepy toys and many traps. Why has he trapped you here with all of his evil little experiments, you might ask? Well, for entertainment of course! So now your life depends on your ability to make weapons out of office supplies and a steady shooting hand.

So as you’ve probably surmised, the gameplay in Kartong – Death by Cardboard! consists of crafting various gadgets out of paper clips and pencils, and using your head to avoid traps and finding a way to escape this crazy horror picture show. Though it seems the developer isn’t finished just yet since they’ve also eluded to some secret plans for the upcoming game.
“This is a new type of game for both us and our fans – one that our players will enjoy both at home and at VR arcades. We’ve also expanded our horizon quite a bit for what type of game Kartong could be, but we’re keeping those plans secret just a bit longer” hinted Joy Bratt Martinez, Marketing & Community Manager at SVRVIVE Studios in the statement.
Though we do know that the full release will feature new maps, traps, weapons and gadgets, as well as an upgrade to the locomotion system, and more. So we’re pretty excited to see what this game has in store for players when it finally releases next month. If you are too then make sure to channel your inner Dwayne from The Office and jump right into the action. Kartong – Death by Cardboard! is available on Steam and the Oculus Store for $8.99. Though the price is set to increase after the full release.
