Man that's crazy looking. Aesthetic reminds me of Zeno Clash.

I could've sworn the trailer was up already. Still, looking good.

This is really intriguing but I still don't feel like I understand what the gameplay is...

Run or frog addicted monster will eat your brains. Oh, and there's puzzles

I like the backstory to this game, it's actually an interesting allegory for the guy who created it's early life. Weird as fuck, but I still find this infinitely more interesting than a lot of games with seemingly randomized plots and archetypes stapled onto every character.

Getting soooo much hype from the press right now and we still haven't really seen anything.

#10 Posted by Seraphim84 (415 posts) -

Woah, definitely seeing Zeno clash too. Maybe a bit of "Where the Wild Things Are". Really neat feel to it.

Zeno Clash - Neverhood - Last gardian mashup hmm

Love that a game is trying to comment on drug use and its affects on relationships. Hope it all comes together. If I remember correctly, the developer talked about how it's about his (or his fathers?) experience with drugs and what it did to their relationship.

This looks fucked up.

In a good way.

Made me think of that too. Seems to be from a child's perspective, that you can find a "cure" for this person's addiction while they're not being the monster, and things will turn out ok...nice if it were that simple.

I hope this turns out to be a fun game. Totally in love with the unique premise and setting.

Yep.  I just hope the narrative comes together and is supported by the rest of the game.  Would love it if it came to PC.

They showed an article that linked to it. Now it's on site.

#33 Posted by pixieface (122 posts) -

Absolutely digging that music. I hope this one will take us all by surprise.

#34 Posted by Damodar (1501 posts) -

Wow, I'm totally taken with the premise of this. 
 
It's like a serious allegory presented through the imagination of a child. It brings to mind equal parts Pan's Labyrinth and Calvin & Hobbes...

Glad to see a game commenting on issues deeper than just shooting dudes in the face. Although honestly, I kind of wish that the whole game had that awesome doodled style at the beginning of the trailer.

This kinda makes me bummed about not owning a PS3.

His father's, and it was alchoholism, I'm fairly sure.

You took the words right out of my mouth.

Why is it called Papo & Yo if the characters are named Quico, Yula and Monster?

#40 Posted by face15 (1306 posts) -

The fact that there are multiple instances of clipping in the trailer doesn't bode well. 
Still, it looks interesting.

#41 Edited by Tesla (1944 posts) -

The game isn't coming out until 2012 and it already looks this good? I think we have a winner on our hands.

#42 Posted by Cirdain (3152 posts) -

That music is incredible. I'm sad that it's PS3 exclusive :'( 
But I'm glad that a game like this being made :)

#43 Posted by Farbot (3 posts) -

I love the story behind this game

Because it means "Father and I"
