A tragic love story for all you Her fans out there
The wonderful Papo & Yo was successful enough for Minority Media to start production on a new game, Silent Enemy, which we haven't seen too much about in the year since its vague announcement.
It appears Minority is also working on another game, Cali, which the Canada Media Fund has slated for fiscal 2013-2014 release.
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.
In a GDC talk, Minority Media's Vander Caballero also confirmed Cali for the latest generation consoles. And also made a Her-like comparison of falling in love with an AI. Whatever it is, I'm super excited. I loved Papo & Yo and I'm glad to see even more games coming from Minority.
