The gameplay is a raw first person shooter in a monochrome open world enviroment where you defeat other armed or non-armed enemies and restore colour to your world, with the ability to switch between the two.
There are two playable characters who can be customised and dueled together online with up to 2 players or in a open free for all match.
Sometimes police will be after you if you kill innocent civilians in the city area so all weapons must be hidden to hide evidence if your caught and bodies be disposed, although enemies do explode upon contact, civilians don't.
The Case Kingdom has been turned into a monochrome land by a Rebellious Army lead by Flat Packer bringing his old army with him. Recto is summoned when a wizard knight pleads Recto to help save his kingdom after hearing of his previous feats and being some sort of admirer. They start their own force to take Flat Packer down and restore colour to the city.
Some puzzles may need to be solved to advance such as shooting cubes to open doors to keep the cube theme of the series.

- Before the game came to existance, it went under forms of Opaque View: Morning Light and MicroWorld. The two concepts were fused together and the game was born.
- It's beta name Paper Cut was suggested by Half-blood2000 (t∣b∣c), but Stelios7 (t∣b∣c) chose Alange95 (t∣b∣c)'s Graphite Wars in the end as he believed that Paper Cut better suited a hack and slash game or just knife combat.
- The second level, Under Construction is a pun on the constructive world looking unfinished and the maths equipment that are used for geometric construction are there.
- The game was originally it's own original project but the controversial more family-friendly Flat Pack liscence was slapped on it.
