Quico’s best friend, Monster, is a huge beast with razor-sharp teeth, but that doesn’t scare Quico away from playing with him. That said, Monster does have a very dangerous problem: an addiction to poisonous frogs. The minute he sees one hop by, he’ll scarf it down and fly into a violent, frog-induced rage where no one, including Quico, is safe. And yet, Quico loves his Monster and wants to save him.
As Quico, players will build their friendship with Monster by solving puzzles together and adventuring through a magical, surrealist world. Players will need to learn to use Monster’s emotions, both good and bad, to their advantage if they want to complete their search for a cure and save their pal.

About the Soundtrack
Composed by Venezuelan-raised Brian D’Oliveira of La Hacienda Creative, this highly-anticipated soundtrack comes from live recorded artfully mixed pieces of dynamically layered melodies and rhythms triggered by players’ movements within the game. Having had a difficult childhood growing up in South America, Papo & Yo was also a deeply personal project for Brian. In these soulfully composed tracks, Brian personally plays a wide variety of “traditional” instruments such as flute(s), cello, guitar, and violin, but many others as well. Fusing rhythms, melodies and sounds from various South American countries, Brian also incorporated influences from India, Africa and early European Baroque music, evident in his choice of instruments like a 100+-year-old Sarangi, African kora, Brazilian hunting whistles, and others which he handcrafted himself.
Brian is joined by Orlando 'Vovo' Conceinçao on percussion, Kamal Sabri on lead sarangi, Loga Ramin Torkian on guitar viol, and Elinor Frey on cello.
