Today the official PlayStation Blog revealed details regarding the upcoming platformer. Gavin Moore, art director at SCE Worldwide Studios talked about the game and the studio working on it.
Puppeteer all takes place in a magical puppet theatre, owned and run by the slightly eccentric but thoroughly charming Professor Gregorious T. Oswald. His latest production is the weirdly titled ‘The Perilous Journey of a Boy Named Kutaro’.
Moore also mentioned the story of the game which sounds a bit creepy.
On one dark, moonlit night, the star of the show, a young boy named Kutaro, is carried away by the maleficent Moon Bear King to a black castle where the unlucky lad is transformed into a puppet. Kutaro then displeases the terrible tyrant who duly devours the boy’s wooden head and casts away his body. But the headless hero is not alone, for he discovers a very special pair of magic scissors to help him on his harrowing quest to find his head, and his way home.
The scissors mentioned above can be used by Kutaro, the main character, to cut through the game’s world and take out enemies.
Currently Puppeteer has no release date except that it will be launched next year in 2013.
