What would happen if you took the mechanics from Papers, Please but added a science fiction element and limbs to the equation? The result would be Limbs Repair Station, a game about repairing futuristic hands for customers.
This simple free to play browser title has a large amount of depth to every single customer visit and can prove tricky even for a veteran Papers, Please player. It doesn’t have the additional features and same depth though, making it only worth a few hours of play.
To assist with your hand repair players are provided with a manual that details everything. Additionally players are provided a practice hand to take apart to learn all the inner workings of these robotic marvels of technology. Each hand comes with a cover (various colours), a red board that houses the resistor, CPU and barcode. A final board underneath the red houses the capacitor and the five fingers. All of these components are screwed or soldered onto their respective boards and are replaceable.
Each hand repair starts with players being provided with a client data card which summarises any of the persons important details and a warranty card. Your first step from this point is to generally confirm their warranty details which involves a mixture of checking that it hasn’t expired, is from a support seller and the barcode on the hand matches that on the warranty slip.
Once players has verified that information they can move onto the bulk of the repair work which is meeting the client requirements. While simple customers will merely need a repair which involves finding the broken component and swapping it for a new one.
Meanwhile the more complex customers will have particular jobs such as detective, doctor, guard, miner, spy and many others. Each of these occupations has a precision and/or grip requirement along with special parts that can replace fingers. Precision and grip are modified by the resistor and CPU type and thus need to be mixed and matched appropriately.
While all of the above are easy to complete if you take your time players will want to complete each as fast as possible to see how many repairs they can successfully complete in a single game day.
