Popu the Pirate is a fictional Playstation 1 game created by artist Plastiboo, the original artwork included a game cover, as well as an eerie screen shot from the game taking place next to an area marked the “Giants Grave”. Based on this artwork, I designed a paper toy playset including Popu the Pirate, a treasure filled island, the giants grave and a Corrupted Siren to tempt Popu towards the darkness.
The playset contains 5 pieces and is just a single page. This model set also features the new ‘playset figure’ design, created to allow for a set scale and tiny representations of scenes and characters. The ‘playset figure’ design uses just 4 tabs to create an adorable humanoid shape that’s much more dynamic than previous, more cube-based designs featured in other Fold Up Toy projects.
If you’re a fan of eerie and unsettling artwork, I’d recommend following Plastiboo on Twitter here.
As well as the standard version of the paper toy template, the download includes a version with no bleed, for reduced printing cost as well as a blank version to allow for customisation.
