Sony advertising Puppeteer with bad improv, banana heads

These amateur performances will leave you in Puppe-tears

Puppeteer is delightful. The quirky venture from Sony Japan, priced at a budget $40, takes place as a stage play with whimsically rotating sets and all sorts of theatre machinations that need to be seen in motion. It’s also gorgeous, cute, and grim.

This series of Puppeteer videos feature horrible improvisation, banana heads, interpretive dance, baby teeth and unicorn sparkle-based poisons, and more. It’s so bad it’s endearing. I just love that Sony is willing to advertise the small, unique project in a equally offbeat way.

If terrible improv by random individuals didn’t sell you on the game, check out Jim’s review. Or just take my word for it. It’s a lovely little game, the kind I’d like to see more of.
