When Grasshopper Manufacture showed off its platformer-in-a-puppet-show Black Knight Sword at TGS last year, I thought, "Well, that sure is a neat idea." But then it never came out, and now here's a game that takes the same concept and runs with it. I'm stunned by how great Puppeteer looks and can't wait to play it this week at TGS.
I have nothing against Grasshopper, but I might have to root for Japan Studio in a world where only one puppet platformer can exist. I'm not sure if we live in that world, but I'm putting that out there just to be safe.
