Puppeteer: Christmas card

Hi everyone and a Merry Christmas to you all! To bring a little peace and goodwill to PlayStation fans all around the world, we decided to create a special Puppeteer Christmas card, designed so that you can reach out to your friends, family and gaming buddies and put a smile on their faces. Think of it as an early Christmas present from us to you.

Who hasn’t forgotten to send Season’s Greetings to certain friends or family? I know I have. We end up rushing madly around to get the card in the post and then hope it gets there before Christmas day. With the Puppeteer Christmas card, it’s as easy as clicking on the link, adding your recipient’s email address, writing a few thoughtful words and clicking send. All from the comfort of your home, work… or even the pub.

So please go ahead and click on the link and send something that will bring a little joy to someone when they open their email in the morning.

So, ‘how is Puppeteer going?’ I hear you cry.

Puppeteer is shaping up nicely! Playing great and looking awesome. From January we will be polishing, refining and adding extra little details, to make the whole experience something fantastical and wonderful that PlayStation fans deserve.

Even though it’s Christmas, we will be working through the holiday season. Actually, Christmas in Japan is a normal work day, but don’t feel that sorry for us. We will make sure that we have a few drinks in the office on Christmas day. Then I will spend a couple of days with my family at New Year, then back for the final push towards launch.

I will be in London for two weeks doing the voice recordings in January, popping across to Budapest for the music recordings, then back to Japan with all my wonderful assets to shove them lovingly into the game. This is one of my favourite parts of game creation. Getting the final assets into the game really brings everything together.

Well, I better crack on. Have a wonderfully Merry Christmas and I hope your New Year brings you joy and happiness.

Add Your Own

Can’t wait, glad to see you’re doing voice overs on it. Is it the witch only or are you still doing it all?

That is going to make a nice Vita start screen. Happy Holidays to you and everyone at PlayStation.

This is truly exciting and a nice Christmas treat. However, my most important concern is that this game is not a PS3 exclusive. I hope that “The Puppeteer” will be available on both PS3 and PS Vita just like has been done with LBP Vita and Hot Shots Golf World Invitation. I don’t own a PS3 yet but we need to see more Cross Play games on the PS Vita like we’ve seen with Warrior’s Lair.

I figured it was doing great, I suppose it’ll be out early next year then? My real question is: how is rain doing?

A release date/window would be the perfect Christmas gift. This and Sly are fighting over my coveted “most anticipated” title.

Very awesome image! looking forward to this game releasing and that it will receive its due support in marketing. The image alone is so full of vibrant colours and a ton of creativity.
