Here's one game I've been dying to play since first checking it out at a Sony PlayStation event awhile back. Part of the PSN PLAY summer program, Papo & Yo is puzzle-platforming adventure about a young boy named Quico whose troubled childhood leads him to an imaginative new world -- a manifestation of his real life. Here he interacts with several characters, including his best friend, Monster, and builds relationships with them. Papo & Yo is a personal coming-of-age story you need to see to believe.
Developer Minority Media took a real leap with this story which refelects upon Creative Director, Vander Caballero's upbringing with his protective mother and abusive, alcoholic father. Papo & Yo's story is emotionally moving, depicting a child's escape from reality while yearning to help his father break his addiction.
Everyone and everything in Papo & Yo is a manifestation of someone or something in Quico's life. It's a deep, thought-provoking new game that approaches creative direction in a personal level, recreating a heartbreaking memory within the game, yet maintains a hopeful, optimistic light that I truly admire.
I still have yet to sit down with Papo & Yo, but it's been one of my most anticipated downloadable titles in the last bit. Look out for my review of the game within the next week where I'll interact and bond with the game's many characters, solve space-bending puzzles and piece together Quico's life.
