Papo & Yo is a downloadable puzzle-platforming adventure for the PlayStation Network that marks the debut release of Montreal-based studio Minority. Players take control of a young boy named Quico as he tries to save his best friend, Monster. A gentle, docile beast with a love of yellow fruit, Monster has a serious problem: he is addicted to eating frogs. Once he does so, he turns into a flaming, raging beast that only wants to attack people. Together, Quico and Monster must journey through a colourful and constantly shifting favela in search of a cure before it’s too late. Papo & Yo was released on the PlayStation Network in Europe on the 15th August 2012.
