Papo & Yo (PlayStation Network) marks a new chapter: our first full-length video game and first sound implementation project. With the assistance of Wwise, we set up a sound implementation system in our studio so that all elements of audio and audio programming can be done at La Hacienda Creative (Montreal). For indie game developers. instead of having to set up an audio wing, companies are able to bring our sound treated studios, Foley pits, voice over booth, and mixing rooms into their gaming audio with this off-site system.
For Papo & Yo, Minority, Inc/Rezolution Pictures took this new indie approach that is slowly beginning to re-define the gaming industry. The Minority team developed the first playable (a demo level) independent of the mainstream companies in gaming. They presented the impressive playable to Sony who is now financing Papo & Yo for release on the PlayStation 3 - PSN.
At La Hacienda Creative, we were also impressed by what Minority Inc/Rezolution Pictures were doing and decided to help bring the music and sound design of their first playable to a professional level before their presentation. We are now doing the music, sound design, and sound implementation for the entire game.
We have also been working on all the promo material, including the above trailers.
