Puppeteer PS3 exclusive in development
Sony reveals a quirky pantomime themed action platformer
Sony and JAPAN Studio announced during their Gamescom 2012 conference a new PS3 exclusive named Puppeteer. The game is pegged for 2013.
Set in a magical puppeteer’s theatre, this title will introduce players to a strange and fantastic world, where the environment is constantly changing. Players will enjoy a rich, dark fairytale where surprises lurk around every corner.
One dark moonlit night, a young boy named Kutaro was carried away by the maleficent Moon Bear King to a black castle where the unlucky lad was transformed into a puppet.
Kutaro displeased the terrible tyrant, who devoured the boy’s wooden head and cast away his body.
But the headless hero was not alone, for he had discovered a very special pair of scissors to help him on his harrowing adventure to find his head, and his way home.
- Dynamic Changing Interactive Backgrounds: A huge variety of backgrounds that are continually changing, taking you on a journey of discovery that will surprise and thrill.
- Scissor Action: Wielding a pair of magical scissors, Kutaro cuts and crops his way through the adventure.
