Artistry shines in this Puppeteer launch trailer


5:00 AM on 09.11.2013



A few days ago, we posted a series of Puppeteer-ible improvisation theatre. It was as endearing as it was bad. Still, I wouldn't blame you if that weird and unexpected video set didn't sell you on the darling little game, so here's a proper launch trailer.

I know Jim's review went up two whole days ago and thus in the annals of the internet the game is ancient and forgotten, but hopefully this will jog your memory. The budget title (it's launching at retail for $40) is high on innovation and artistry, replete with dizzying color schemes and neat theatre machinations as the stage warps around, clunking and clicking. 

I want to see more unique little adventures like Puppeteer. Sony Japan still seems chock full of them, with things like Rain and Tokyo Jungle, not to mention Gravity Rush, one of my favorite games of recent years.

PS+ PSA: Puppeteer and Surge Deluxe are free

Tomorrow's Tuesday, which means today is Monday. I hate Mondays, am I right? But while your Monday is guaranteed to not get any better, well, Tuesday won't, either. Life is pretty bad. But at least you can download some free PlayStation Plus games while you suffer through it! Free tomorrow are the criminally underrated Puppeteer (PS3) and the 'what else are you playing on your Vita?' Surge Deluxe.more
