It’s a lot easier to write a story about someone who make games when he puts himself in the game. Weirdest moment: Going to a Sony press event, seeing a PlayStation-themed alcoholic drink menu with a “Papa & Yo” on it and thinking it was a strange fit for a game about an abusive alcoholic father.

(This story originally appeared on The Verge and then got ported to Polygon, so unfortunately the layout is a little messy as a result.)
