Independent game development studio Minority Media has announced that its critically-acclaimed emotional adventure game Papo & Yo is now available internationally for pre-order on Steam, Amazon and other PC-based direct download platforms. Starting today through the PC launch on April 18, 2013, gamers can pre-order the game to receive 10 percent off the $14.99 purchase price and a free copy of the wildly popular Papo & Yo original soundtrack (OST).
Previously exclusive to PlayStation®Network through Sony’s Pub Fund, Minority Media is excited to present their innovative interactive journey to a broader audience through PC. Papo & Yo has received widespread critical acclaim from mainstream media and a huge outpouring of deeply personal fan mail from all over the globe. Upgrades to Papo & Yo’s PC release include improved graphics and visual effects, improved controls, improved character animation and cinematics, more robust gameplay, full controller support for Steam Big Picture mode and multi-monitor support for a fantastic new player experience.
The Papo & Yo soundtrack, which has been recognized by critics as a key element of the game’s unique, magical setting, will also be released later this month on iTunes and other popular digital distribution platforms for $5.99. Created by composer and sound designer Brian D’Oliveira of La Hacienda Creative, the soundtrack features traditional instruments and recordings taken directly from the jungles of South America. For a sneak peek, download a preview track titled “A Strange New World” from SoundCloud.
