Sony’s Platformer Game Puppeteer Celebrates Halloween with a Trailer

Sony Computer Entertainment has given its upcoming release Puppeteer a special Halloween themed trailer. The game follows a small boy Kutaro in a dark fairytale world, where he is transformed into a puppet and his head is bitten of by the Moon Bear King; Kutaro must defeat the Moon Bear King to get back his head. Although, his is not the only head in this world, as he can pick up different heads to give him certain abilities, and a pair of giant scissors help him to cut through obstacles and enemies. The game is set for release in 2013.

The game’s striking aesthetic is inspired by its creator Gavin Moore’s love of Japanese Bunraku (puppet) theatre.

Happy Halloween!
