Some article a while ago about how the guy who made this based the game on his relation to his alcoholic dad.

Isn't this the PSN game with a guy that has a monster friend that hulks out when he eats a frog and is supposed to represent drug addiction?

Is this the game that Patrick put an interview up with the creator and it turned out it was about his abusive dad? Because that sounded pretty interesting.

Also, clunky looking jumping...

I was going to say, those animation stood out too much as everything else looked fine.

I played this at Fantastic Arcade in Austin about 6 months ago. It was really interesting and unique.

This "imagination brought to life" gameplay mechanic is awesome. Reminds me of being a kid and pretending to manipulate the word around me at will.

This looks a lot less interesting now that I know what the gameplay is.

Woah,looks really imaginative

Oh man, this is one of those games that's going to make me all weepy.

Edited by mrcraggle

@Philzpilz: Yea, is it. They recently change the design too because he found the monster to be more like his dog rather than his father.

I think the jumping really stands out as it does look as though the jump lacks momentum with the running and it's more straight up.

The movement animation looks bad but the concept and implementation looks intruiging.

WEIRD JUMP ANIMATION IS WEIRD

Jet pack robot and voodoo boxes, I'm in.

Posted by Keithcrash

The jet pack think kinda killed it for me. I was initially grooving on the low techie, imagination vibe thing it had going on, but then it turned Boba Fett.

I dig the cardboard box part

this looks like a good game to get high to or drunk to

The title of this game really bugs me, because I read it as "Papo and Yo," as if 'Yo' is the name of a character. It should be Papo y Yo.

interesting to say the least

This game looks like it could be really good. The graphics looks nice, but I am not really sure what the main play mechanics are all about. I didn't see the father figure in the demo video, so I guess we'll just have to wait to find more out about this game. @DeF: Thanks for the repost of the earlier story. I never read that article.

I guess Brazil is the inspiration.

Hmmm this game is missing something.....................

Geomod?
