Puppeteer

ETA – TBA 2013
Looks proper cute, this side-scrolling title from Studio Japan, right? Not when you discover it’s about a young lad called Kutaro who gets his head chopped off and has to spend the rest of the game decorating his lonely shoulder blades with a variety of odds and ends in his quest to defeat the evil Moon Bear King. There’s more than a faint whiff of LittleBigPlanet in the ‘arts and crafts’ visual lick, but Puppeteer’s endearing visuals cloak a more sinister tone than that found in Sackboy’s primary coloured toybox. It’s more Tim Burton than Tony Hart, making Puppeteer one of the most original and intriguing titles of 2013.
