Puppeteer TGS 2012 trailer - Experience the magic of this puppet theatre

Scissors have never been this kid-friendly

Not since Little Big Planet have we felt this same sense of child-like giddiness when watching a platforming game's trailer. Developed by Sony's Japan Studio exclusively for the PS3, this stylized jump-and-cut puts you in the shoes of an adorable, scissor-brandishing puppet. We could go into every last detail about the ingenious mechanic of cutting your way up a curtain, or how badly we want to snip our way out of a tiger's mouth, but we'd rather you just watch the trailer instead:

Charming, yes? We haven't even played the game yet, and already it seems wondrous. It also seems to share a LBP vibe in that it appears our hero's look can be extensively customized. Until we get a chance to play it for ourselves, we'll be keeping our eyes peeled for more info on Puppeteer, in gleeful anticipation of its planned 2013 release.


Lucas likes his games like he likes his music: eclectic. With all the weird and wonderful stuff he's played over the years, the two of you are bound to feel the same way about something!
