Check out what others have said about Paper Sorcerer:

Rather than focusing solely on leveling and powering-up your characters, Paper Sorcerer focuses on a battle's strategy instead overall strength.

After last year’s glut of first-person dungeon crawlers, things have quieted down substantially. Luckily, we now have Paper Sorcerer to get the ball rolling again!

It's a well-written and deep-enough party-based RPG, on the evidence of the demo at least.
PC Gamer

The turn-based battles are particularly complex. You have to consider the number of turns it will take for spells to burn out, to consider when to play defensively, and to consider switching up your fighting style in accordance with the enemy type.

Paper Sorcerer does something unique that only Indie developers can: take risks.

I've had a play of that demo and have come away even more impressed by the game’s many systems, tactical mix-ups and branching gameplay than the visuals ever managed.

...the game will take as much as 20 hours to complete, but even if you make it to the end, the various character types on offer mean you can replay it an entirely different way.
