Visual metaphors

Isn’t it amazing how far PlayStation Network titles have come? The service was originally conceived as a means to host bite-sized titles such as Super Stardust HD, but has since blossomed into a viable platform for indie developers to realise their dreams.

Papo & Yo is one such project, as this live-action launch trailer ambitiously demonstrates. Directed by Alfonso Maiorana, it depicts protagonist Quico’s turbulent relationship with his alcoholic father.

The full game’s due out on 14th August in North America and 15th August in Europe. Are you planning on picking it up?
