Papo & Yo trailer details alcoholic abuse and escape in the favela for anticipated PSN launch.

Papo & Yo is the forthcoming magical-real, semi-autobiographical adventure puzzler by Vander Caballero, a former EA Montreal developer who broke off to form his own studio called Minority. Here, a cinematic splicing augments the game’s deeply personal narrative: how the young Vander coped with his father’s violent alcoholism and abuse—imagined in-game as a grotesque game hide-and-seek through a surreal favela. That’s just the surface—our interview with Caballero last spring guides us through the transference of his haunted childhood into a videogame.
