Papo & Yo’s Launch Trailer Shows a Wildly Different Take on The Fantasy Adventure Genre

Papo & Yo is the first release from developer Minority, straight outta Montreal, where a shitload of good games are being made these days. It's a PS3 exclusive, and was even supported by Sony's Pub Fund scheme. This one, whether it's good or not, is surely different. Here is the developer's description of the story:

Papo & Yo is the story of a young boy, Quico, and his best friend, Monster. Monster is a huge beast with razor-sharp teeth, but that doesn’t scare Quico away from playing with him. That said, Monster does have a very dangerous problem: an addiction to poisonous frogs. The minute he sees one hop by, he’ll scarf it down and fly into a violent, frog-induced rage where no one, including Quico, is safe. And yet, Quico loves his Monster and wants to save him.

After watching this cinematic trailer you'll know it's much deeper than what the developer is describing, and they don't really sugarcoat it either. As you'll see, his friend Monster represents some serious issues in Quico's life.   

Yes, good to be back in action, I took yesterday off to sweat in the overbearing heat and sand of Redondo Beach, watch 21 Jump Street (the new one, review at some point in the future) and basically get nothing done while enjoying what I call a "day off". It was somewhat awesome, except the heat and sand, and the getting nothing done part.

It pretty much drives me insane when I'm not working these days. Even though the website is finally nettling me dollars instead of cents, it's literally dollars, as in one dollar or so, per day. But believe me that is fucking incredible news, considering there were months and months where I would get one fucking penny most days. Anyways my point is that it drives me insane because I know I have to put work in every day to get it to the point where DouBle B Reviews IS my only job. But that day is approaching, faster and faster. You can seriously help me by LIKING MY FACEBOOK PAGE, or FOLLOWING ME ON TWITTER. I love my followers, and they know it too.  Oh yeah, I'm now on Tumblr now, if that's your thing. Share all of these with your friends. Every little bit helps, and it doesn't cost you shit. Thanks in advance!
