Though the context of that discussion was quite different from the one surrounding Papo & Yo, I couldn’t help but think of that statement while playing. Papo & Yo is a haunting emotional ride that was just released on the PSN, and deserves to be both played and discussed. It is a game that addresses those demons that can live inside a person. These are not the hell-born fictitious demons that entice and derail lives, but rather the metaphorical specters symbolizing the unresolved psychological issues that poison minds and taint lives.
