A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

This game is inspired by "Papers, please" but it uses a different concept.

14.12.1983 - 122A Salevsk square

You got a new job in the "Ministry of Decisions" in Salevsk.

2 years ago, the war ended - The current economic situation in Salevsk has stabilized, but still fragile. That is when you come into action. Do your job right and lead Salevsk to glory.

How it works:

You have 10 formulas of each paper and they only restock if both stocks are empty, which will force you to think more about the decisions you make. Your goal is to keep all stats balanced for as long as you can.

Please fix, i'm using mac and this game was crashed when i opened this. I really want to play it

Very good game. you made nice tribute to papers please. 

here is my video btw


Thank you so much for playing. I really appreciate your video :)

When I open it, it immediately tells me that it quit unexpectedly.

I know this is a common error with my mac builds. I am using GM 1.4 which isn't supported anymore, so the compiler also doesn't get any more updates. That is why the game only works on older mac OS versions. I am sorry, but I can't do anything about it.

I uploaded your menu theme song. 


Nice nice. The theme song isn't made by me, you'll find the creator in the credits, make sure to credit him please, his work is amazing!


I like the concept, but it's a bit too repetitive and boring. I gave up after not even 5 minutes. Maybe if you would add more stuff like in Papers, Please (where you get more tools at your disposal,more things  you have to be wary about) then it would improve the game drastically.

On it

Viewers of good content, UNITE! We all want to change the world, but since I'm the Great Dictator of Salevsk, I can actually do it. This is a very entertaining (if slightly repetitive) game where I decided the fate of my people. 

Thanks soo much for playing ^.^

I enjoyed the video! I know that the game is repetetive but I'll add more content in the future. All updates I publish now are focused on new mechanics

it's the same paper please

When I try to open the game on mac, it crashes. I will attach a photo to this comment of the error message if that'll help you fix what looks like a game that will be amazing to play. 

Hello there. 

I get that error too when trying to start the game on mac. Its because of MacOS not allowing you to start apps from unregistered developers. Its kinda useful for protection bc its almost impossible to get a virus. But I found an article explaining how to (hopefully) fix this issue.


I tried that already, it just crashes. I have it so it will open any programs without any problem or questions.

Thats weird. Maybe your mac version is too new for the app? Idk really... I tested it with older macos versions and it worked... weird..

Here is the error log, if it helps:

I can't open the app


Can you make a MacOs version of this? Also will this game be free when it is complete 


Yes! It will stay free forever! I can make a mac build, of course! Just give me some time bc it's more complicated ^^


yes thank you so much! :)

What should I do if i can't open the app

(1 edit)

If it says that the program is damaged, its a safety thing by apple. By default, apple only lets you open programs with certificates, but I havent got one. So you should allow it to run any program. Or try downloading it on windows, and then open it on mac. 

Other solution: I tested it with the unzip-tool "StuffIt Expander", and it works. (You find it in the App-store)

It said that stuffit is unable  to determine the file format

Hm. Ok. I tried it and it worked... then u gotta try allowing to open the apps without certificate...

Good game, liked the "papers please" syle though this game can become repetitive and you can easly reach 100 days by simply spamming accept even on top difficulty. but apart from that, good job!


I know that this is a major and HUGE problem. There are 15 questions atm, I'm looking for more. It's just soo annoying for me to think about those questions. But I'll add more soon!

Anyway thx 4 ur feedback 

Can you try to make it for chromebooks? I would love to try it but I only own a chromebook :(

First of all, I'm sorry, but I can only create games for Windows and MacOS. I didn't even know there is a notebook by google, is it?

LMB dos not  work


LMB = left mouse button


Its like reings and papers please.Good work comrade


That was the intention! I really like both games so I wanted to create a hybrid ^^

Nice game


Thank you :)
