Magadly Caballero knew that her brother Vander was making a game about their alcoholic father. She'd lived through his scary rages alongside Vander. But she still wasn't ready for how Papo & Yo would make her feel.
Vander Caballero's sister hasn't been able to play Papo & Yo yet—Kotaku's review is here—but she's seen videos of the game in action. "It was hard," Magadly says in response to questions that I sent her over e-mail. "I felt deeply uncomfortable, even though I was happy that Vander did the game. It was really hard for me to remember those memories. When Monster eats the frog [which send him into violent rampages], I felt terror and anguish."
