Papo & Yo creator Vander Caballero has revealed a new project in development, titled Cali. No date has been set, but this will be its third release from his studio Minority Media after Silent Enemy comes out this spring. Cali is set for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, iOS, and Android.
IGN reports that Cali appears to tell a tragic love story, and is set in an Aztec-like environment. It had only been announced for the new consoles during the Game Developers Conference, but a listing on the Canada Media Fund site shared more details.
Set in an advanced civilization long before the Conquistadors arrived in the Amazon, Cali is an adventure game developed for iOS, Android and the Cloud. It tells the story of Massi, a teenager caught up with his peers for the Sacred Rite, a centuries-old tradition that sends the strongest adolescent boys to the Second Sun. In a tragic mix of circumstances, Massi is separated from the group. As Massi, players will navigate to the Second Sun with the help of Cali, a beautiful and mysterious creature called a pixan, with features of both a majestic butterfly and shy human girl. And while Cali is the secret to Massi’s future success, there is a deadly reason why she cannot, or will not, help.
