Papo & Yo

Papo & Yo developer Minority has posted a heart warming response to an anonymous fan after receiving a hand written letter signed with "music notes and a heart". Community manager Rommel Romero wrote on behalf of the studio: "I read your moving letter the moment that it got to our studio and felt that the team would love to know about you. So, we called a meeting and I read them your gripping story out loud. I had to stop every other paragraph to regain my composure; your story is an overwhelming one and your courage is inspiring."

Romero continued: "Being a small company, our path is filled with many challenges and the energy that we get from our community of fans helps us to push forward. When I was finished reading your letter to the team and I looked back at them, I saw in their faces that you had given them strength."

While Romero didn't share the contents of the letter, it's clear that it touched upon some of the deeply powerful emotions glimpsed in the game, which sees a young boy struggle to deal with his abusive and alcoholic father. "In your letter, you spoke of your father and about how he tells you that your thoughts are worthless," added the response. "I am writing you to tell you that we disagree: your thoughts are powerful. I will pin your letter on a board in everyone’s view, so that you may constantly remind us why we do what we do. Again, thank you!"
