The story of Unfold revolves around a little paper figure that finds itself in a wasted paper world. The wilds, the setting of the game, have been watched upon by four big guardian creatures. Those guardians have been lost for a long time.
Due to that incident, the wilds have lost their energy as well. In an attempt to find them, the little paper figure starts its journey. After rescuing the first one, our little hero finds out that it has the ability to shapeshift. Ultimately the paper figure ascends and becomes a guardian itself.
