Sony also unveiled Puppeteer, another PS3 exclusive, at Gamescom.
The PlayStation Move compatible platformer takes place in “the theatre of the strange and fantastic”, where you play as Kutaro, a boy who was kidnapped by the Moon Bear King and taken to a black castle where he was turned into a puppet.
The Moon Bear King ate Kutaro’s now-wooden head in a fit of rage and threw his body away. But as a puppet boy, Kutaro couldn’t die, could he? Instead, he started using different objects to replace his missing head. Each item adopted as a head gives him different powers as he traverses the magical theatre.
Much like in a stage show, it’s the background scenery that moves, not the character. Watch the trailer to see what we mean!
This quirky game is something macabre and definitely weird, but it’s a refreshing change from the deluge of shooters that we see these days.
