Papo & Yo Announced, New PSN Exclusive

Posted by on June 2nd, 2011 | 0 Comments | Tags: , ,

Minority has thought up something rather interesting for their partnership with Sony’s Pub Fund. Papo & Yo is a puzzle platformer, due out in early 2012, and a journey of friendship between a boy, Quico, and his best friend, Monster. Sadly it seems that Monster has a rather serious problem… he is addicted to poisonous frogs. It is your quest to find a cure and save your friend.

After Monster chows down on a frog, he becomes your worst enemy, adding a rather unique dynamic to the game’s puzzle solving. There are times when you will need to use both his good and bad side to further the quest for a cure. Monster’s mood is also directly related to the world you are in. When he is happy everything is bright and sunny, but when he is mad it becomes dark and dreary.

As you can see from the trailer below, the world changes as you are solving the puzzles. Lights will illuminate rising rocks and even entire bulidings will be moved around through out you puzzle adventure. The game is also not to bad to look at, with what looks to be a rather impressive engine for a PlayStation Network title.

This is all I have for you now, but I will be checking this out first thing on Tuesday at E3.
