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

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 don't think a game has ever made me cry so much. Coming from a family with substance abuse, this game hit down to the core. It isn't a difficult game, but it has a beautiful and powerful story to tell.

First of all, I have to mention that this is quite a powerful game and can have quite an impact on people if they have ever suffered with or been aroud substance misuse although it isn't primarily focused on this. The gameplay is incredible. There is lots to explore and lots of creative elements involved such as making things in order to help you through your journey. Without giving too much away, you feel very much like you are the character playing and you quite often feel what he is feeling. This did make me cry, I will be honest but I personally, love games that has such a powerful impact on me. It makes me want to play it again and again and I have already completed the game twice and itching to go back. It's easy to forget yourself and get totally immersed. If you like adventure and a taste for real life elements, give this game a try. It was suggested to me by a friend and I can't thank him enough for putting me in touch with this game. I highly recommend it and I'm very thankful to the developers for going to so much trouble and effort to make it an amazing experience for me.

This game left me with my mouth hanging open, only able to make noises similar to "wow". Everybody, who has been cursed with an unreliable parent, will understand this game perfectly and remember it forever. It's an escape to a puzzle fanthasy world, where this boy Quico finds an answer to his unfair trouble. This game will give you more than just a few hours of fun. This is the case, where a game crosses the line and becomes art. 9/10

Played through Papa & Yo today.Not a bad game. I remember the press on this being highly favorable. The gameplay wasnt really very challenging, but it was engaging enough to convey the story, which was obvious very quickly, so no worries about spoilers really...you (but really the guy who wrote the story) had an abusive alcoholic dad, and the torment of that upbringing haunted him throughout his life until he was finally able to let go of the fear and torment and move on with his life....that is pretty much the story in a nutshell. It is put forward in a very sensitive manner, and serves to explain the writers feelings without necessarily forcing them on you the gamer. So, I can see why people liked the game based on that. I think the gameplay was probably a 6 out of 10, but the story was more like a 7 out of 10, and the presentation was a 9 out of 10.

I was expecting this to be a small indie title that was rough around the edges, which is why it was such a surprise. This has the production values of a AAA title - whatever any of that means, but it would never be released and marketed as such. You'll see amazing, world-bending things, things that haven't really got an equivalent in other games.

But you'll also get the point, which is why this could never really be an AAA blockbuster. It's beautifully sad, and definitely not for everyone. Mindful of triggers due to the subject matter, but without spoiling anything, I'll just say that the ending is as redemptive as you want it to be.

At first I thought this game was just kind of a cheery little silly platform puzzler where you bounce around with chalk markings and floating magic sugar cubes, but as it progressed the story became revealed... the game actually got legitimately unsettling, even frightening at points. The story is very carefully revealed and if you don't get spoiled through reading guides or wikis, you'll be stabbed in the stomach with feelings. These aren't 'girly visual novel' feelings, these are 'I have never cried at a movie and I'm not scared of horror games; there's just something in my eye, please hold me' feelings. For some people, the topic may actually hit very close to home.

On a gameplay note, the gameplay itself is actually fairly simple though it can be periodically frustrating if you don't know what to do. It's a short-ish game, taking about 4 and a half hours to complete if you get stuck only on a couple of puzzles. Definitely worth it, especially if you get it on sale. I've had the game for over a year and I don't regret purchasing it.

Papo & Yo is one of those titles that proves videogames are an art form. With heavy handed themes and light puzzle solving mechanics, this game speaks volumes to the artistic expression the creator was trying to convey. You can't say too much about it without spoiling the narratives intent. Play it!

8/10 Lulas!

This past couple oyf years has seen the release of a bunch of games dealing with a lot of real life issues, like alcoholism, physical abuse, death of a loved one etc... This is one of those, is a not very difficult puzzle game, with some platforming, and in this regard if you find yourself stuck most probably is because you are overthinking it, is a nice looking game, not astonishing but it looks good, the soundtraack is pretty good in my opinion, is short as most of this games are but it´s worth its price. the game has certain issues with the camera in some parts , specially when the monster chases you and in that regard i wouldn´t have mind and FOV slider (the deffault is 90 wich is good enough but i like something like 105 usually)

the core of the history goes around and alcoholic and abusive father and how the protagonist deals with it, to be honest it lacks the punch of something like brothers but is a moving one nonetheless. Overall a good way to spend three to four hours, it has a checkpoint save system but it doesn´t take much time to get to the next one and you can play it in one sitting or chapter to chapter.

So if you are into this kind of experiences is a game you should check out

The gaming industry is at its best when a developer manages to turn a personal story into an enjoyable game.

Papo&Yo is a wonderful experience: the gameplay is fun and gimmicky, turning the landscape and urban architecture into puzzles, thanks to all sorts of imaginary devices, the kind a child (or a talented graffiti artist :) ) might draw on walls. Many times I just surprised and delighted by what my next click did, never bored and always looking forward to the next area to solve.

The game looks and sounds just right enough to draw you into the world and the story it wants to tell. Just stand still in the sun, look around at the colorful houses of the South American slums and listen to the silence. And the crickets :) Just beautiful.

Everything feels organic, in its right place and I don't want to tell you anything more specific, for fear it will spoil your own experience. I'm just sorry I didn't pick this up sooner, it's been sitting in my Library for months.

Do yourself a favour and put a smile on your face with this gem.

Pleasantly surprised. I love the way the kid's imagination is used to introduce game elements and portray a very sad story. Solid gameplay mechanics with enough variation throughout, and the music is very good as well. It's a looker too, I found the game is more beautiful than portrayed in the trailer.

If you like puzzle platformers and love a good story that is mostly told using mechanics, not words, then I can safely say you will enjoy this game.

This game deals with a very hard, sad subject, but it does it so well, and in such a powerful way.
Such a well made game, it's not perfect, but I definitely recommend everyone to play this.

A boy and his monster,

PRO:
+ Handles difficult subject matter wonderfully
+ Filled with magical, empowering moments
+ Quico has no control over his chaotic home life, but his imagination lets him escape and feel empowered.
+ There's no penalty for getting caught, but you still understand and empathize with Quico's fear of Monster.
+ 10 Achievements
+ Steam Cloud

CONTRA:
- Puzzles are too easy to be rewarding

CONCLUSION:
You don't have to be a child to be enchanted by Papo & Yo. Even adults need to see the world through a child's eyes once in a while.

One of the most involving and emotional games I've ever played.
One hell of a story, which, at first, is unexpected... Making it a great "twist".
The graphics are amazing. The story and, especially, the way it's told, are what made me like this game the most. It's one of a kind, truly.

Everything is gorgeous, everything is surreal, everything is an allegory.

Papo & Yo is a 3D puzzle platformer adventure, in which you are a boy running after a girl, avoiding a monster while using it to solve puzzles, and playing with your robot toy. You use platforming to reach various stuff in the environment to change the the world around you to progress. Well, on one plane. On another plane, and this is made clear right before the game proper starts, this is a game about overcoming a drunk abusive father. Papo & Yo's story isn't the best, but it has a reasonably well put together theme and a very strong subject matter. There were a few story elements that felt somewhat jarring, taking you out of the immersion. For example, the tone of the girl changes dramatically and unexpectedly at times.

It's puzzles are on the easy side, all difficulty in this game comes from either finding the things you are to interact with or with your 3D platforming skills, sometimes together with a timed element in the puzzle. Some times, it's hard to judge the distance to items and when using the robot overshoot. The platforming control does feel well implemented and I did not encounter any situations where I had managed to block progress by going somewhere I was not supposed to and with no recovery options.

Graphically, it's a nice looking game with a very consistent style to it. Textures and effects aren't the very best, but on the other hand, that's not really to be expected from a game like this. It does some world building through the environment, but over all, it is a very linear world that does not present mane chances for exploration outside of your immediate puzzle surroundings.

Game world isn't the largest, and the game doesn't take more than maybe 4-6 hours to complete if played with no prior knowledge, but for what it provides for the price, it is a solid and well designed game.

Wow, is all I can say, this game has sooo much sentimentality attached to it before you even meet it, it's like that friend that you just want to help, the secret garden or the hidden path that you only imagined as a child. I found myself in my gameplay just wanting to play more and yet I had to stop for each recording.....

Get this game guys, you will not regret it and I do hope the Devs expand on this must tell story!
