Venture into Hallowee Ville in New Puppeteer Trailer

Gavin Moore's Avatar + Posted by Gavin Moore on Oct 31, 2012

Well, it’s my favorite time of year again – Halloween, when all the ghosts and ghouls come out to scare the pants off of us for a single dark night. It’s also the one night of the year that we can all pig out on candy and sweets and not have to feel guilty. Well, not that guilty.

You all probably know by now my love for Tim Burton and his amazing gothic aesthetic.
This was something that I really had in the back of my mind when creating Puppeteer – dark and creepy but with a great sense of humor. Of course, his work on Nightmare Before Christmas is phenomenal but I also love his short movie Vincent, voiced by Vincent Price.

Hi guys, back again to give you an update on Puppeteer. First off, please let me thank you all for your wonderful, supportive comments after our announcement at Gamescom last month.

So, when I got back from Germany, I started getting ready for Tokyo Game Show. We aren’t showing a playable demo on the show floor, but I have put together another trailer for the show. This one is longer and shows a little bit more of the story, without giving too much away and ruining it for you all. Have a look up above.

Hi guys. Let’s get the introductions out the way so can get right to the exciting stuff. My name is Gavin, and for the past nine years I have been living in Tokyo working for Sony’s Worldwide Studios.

Recently, I and a small — but incredibly talented — group of game makers have been hard at work on a new PlayStation 3 game called Puppeteer. I’m excited to be able to talk directly to you guys, the heart of PlayStation, and give you the heads-up on the game first.

Puppeteer takes place in a magical puppet theatre, owned and run by the slightly eccentric but thoroughly charming Professor Gregorious T. Oswald. His latest production is the weirdly titled “The Perilous Journey of a Boy Named Kutaro.”
