Quico’s best friend, 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.

"What begins as a puzzle platformer, and very much has its up and downs, becomes a series of brilliantly, beautifully, devastatingly evocative moments."

Regarding Papo & Yo for Mac and Linux

Dear Steam Community,

Since the release of Papo & Yo on Playstation 3, back in 2012, we've often found ourselves coming back to it to draw inspiration for other games like Spirits of Spring (released on iOS in 2014), and another one quietly waiting in our backlog, Cali (planned for VR devices).

Papo was our first game, the one whose creative process helped cement us as a team. And so it's been our pleasure to port it to PC, and subsequently, to Mac and Linux to take more gamers on a journey to Quico's colorful favela.

Since then, part of those communities have been able to enjoy our game by purchasing it on the Humble Store, but it hasn't yet come to Steam for Mac and PC. We're very sorry for that. Papo means a lot to us and it feels great to see how much it means to you.

Right now, we're hard at work on a new game called Time Machine VR, developed from the ground up for virtual reality devices. We like to sum it up as a time travel dinosaur safari. Yeah, it's a mouthful, we're still working on that description. You can find out more on Time Machine VR at: http://www.weareminority.com/time-machine/

In the midst of this new adventure, we haven't forgotten about the Mac and Linux community on Steam. Although we don't have a precise time line as to when we'll get down to it, rest assured that you WILL enjoy Papo for Mac and Linux on Steam.

Thank you for your dedication!

Om detta spel

Quico’s best friend, 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.
As Quico, players will build their friendship with Monster by solving puzzles together and adventuring through a magical, surrealist world. Players will need to learn to use Monster’s emotions, both good and bad, to their advantage if they want to complete their search for a cure and save their pal.

I really liked this game. The music and visuals were pretty good with a unique setting. The game is very story focused although the story is never told in direct terms. It becomes obvious as events in the game reveal it. I think for people who enjoy games with a story to them the presentation here is something to appreciate.

The story really resonated with me personally but I will refrain from saying why to avoid any spoilers. You may find that it does with you as well but even if not it is still just as worthy of your time.


As for the gameplay itself, it is simple puzzling and platforming and I do mean simple. Anyone good at those sorts of games may be critical of this one on that account but I hope not. The gameplay is just a vehicle to deliver the story really more than anything else. It's very casual but I liked that personally as someone who does not generally get into puzzlers or platformers much at all. If you shy away from those sorts of games don't let the mention of that here scare you off. It is so easy I can do it which means anybody can. Furthermore, there is a built in easily accessible hint system that will guide you along so you cannot fail if you find yourself puzzled about how to advance. Now, I did not need this of course but I just wanted to let you know it is there and makes what you need to do crystal clear.

I played the Mac version on OS X 10.10.2 with no problems at all. It ran just fine on my late-2013 27" iMac.

I cried playing this

It was a truly immersive experience. The puzzles interacted with the environment beautifully, the protaganist is very easy to relate to, and the story telling was well done. This game can definitly change a person for the better.

3/3

Where most platformers have a full host of enemies, Papo & Yo has just one, and it's kind of important. While this very satisfyingly ties the gameplay to the deeply personal narrative, it also puts a considerable amount of pressure on the game's obstacles to make up for a lack of variety. Fortunately, the game manages to surprise throughout in that department, with level design that is elegant in both function and form.

You know the game is good when the ending can be interpreted in so many ways, while at the same time not losing any of the emotional impact. This is one rare gem in the massive library of games we have today, a true example of how one serious theme can be presented. You don't have to have a hard life as the lead character Quico has to find a little bit of yourself in this game and to learn, in my interpretation, that forgiving and letting go is an essential part of moving forward. A definite recommendation from myself.
