• 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. However, Monster has a dangerous problem: an addiction to poisonous frogs. The moment 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. As Quico, you will get to know Monster by solving puzzles together and adventuring through a magical, dream-like world. You will learn to use Monster’s emotions, both good and bad, to your advantage if you want to complete your quest for a cure and save your pal.

    Papo & Yo is available on the PlayStation® Network, Steam (Windows only), Humble Store (DRM-free Mac, Linux and Windows) and other digital distributors. The original soundtrack by La Hacienda Creative is currently available on the iTunes, Steam and PlayStation® Network. Systems: PlayStation® Network Windows (Steam and DRM-free) Mac and Linux (DRM-free).

    • “One of the 12 best games for PS3.”


      “Like a hard-to-interpret dream that you just can’t shake when you wake up, your mind will keep coming back to Papo & Yo long after many cookie-cutter action games have faded from your memory. For that alone, it’s worth investing a bit of your time and money.”


      “Now Papo & Yo, a lyrical tale of a boy and a monster, has set a new and altogether different standard in gaming for representing the world as it is.”

      The New York Times

      “… a breath of fresh creative intent and a piece of left field storytelling, Papo & Yo beats games with ten times the budget and man power.”


      “[Papo & Yo] tells an incredibly personal story about love, loss and growth that serves as an example of how far the video game medium has come as an art form. Like any good story, the ending leaves some room for interpretation, and it can serve as a focal point for discussion for a while to come.”


      “The team at Minority set out to make an emotionally compelling, creative game, and they succeeded. Even if Papo & Yo didn't have its roots in reality, it would still be an enjoyable experience, but the way that the real world events are interwoven into the fantastical story make it truly stand out, in a way that most games don't even attempt.”
