Papo & Yo Developer Tackles Bullying in Next Game

Papo & Yo developer Minority Media took the wraps off the next project it is working on – a game about bullying. The game is called the Silent Enemy, and explores the topic of bullying and what people who see bulling tend to do (not get involved). According to a promo video for the game, it will feature an "Aboriginal character" who embarks on a quest to find springtime in Northern Quebec. During that quest the protagonist will be bullied by crow-like creatures that hinders his quest.

The development team is drawing on its own experiences as victims of bullying in the creation of the game, according to the video (several are shown holding up hand written signs during the presentation).

GameSpot has a the teaser trailer for the game here. A game about bullying is a good fit for Minority Media considering that its first game delved into the topic of being the child of an alcoholic parent…
