Video: Puppeteer Out Today, PlayStation 3 Launch Trailer Unveiled

31w ago - Sony Worldwide Studios Art Director Gavin Moore announced that Puppeteer for PS3 is officially out today alongside a PlayStation 3 launch trailer below.

To quote: Hi everyone. At last, after more than three years of hard work, we finally get to launch Puppeteer today for PS3.

It's a true labor of love, and we can't wait to see what you all think of it. Take a look at the launch trailer for a taste of what's to come.

When I started with Puppeteer, the idea was to take a lot of inspiration from Japanese culture and mash it up into a crazy game. I really like that old look, but I'm glad we decided, as a team, to move the art direction to where we are now.

Mixing both Western and Japanese influences and moving more towards a darker, grimmer fairy tale. Besides, it would have been hard to be as creative and crazy with the characters and the world if we had stuck to the original look.

Looking back over the three and a half years of production, Puppeteer has been a lot of fun to make. Half of me is glad that we finally finished, but the other half feels a little sorrow because I won't be able to direct Kutaro on his crazy adventures anymore.





The best thing, though, is that...
 

Dragon Fantasy Book II is Out on PS3 and PlayStation Vita Today

31w ago - Muteki Corporation Founder, President and CEO Bryan Sawler announced that Dragon Fantasy Book II is out on both PS3 and PlayStation Vita platforms today.

To quote: After almost two years, four PAX showings (as well as GDC, E3, etc) it's almost bittersweet to be finally announcing this.

It was just over a year ago that we first announced this game was coming to PSN. But you can't understand why that is until you look at what really went into this game...

Looking Back

Dragon Fantasy Book II's origin is a long tale, going back almost 20 years to when myself and Adam Rippon, the game's writer and creative director were just teenagers. Knowing nothing about what it takes to make games, we looked at the JRPGs we loved at the time and wanted to make our own.

Over a dozen failures later we eventually gave up and went on with life, ending up in the game industry and working together at a number of companies. It wasn't until just a few years ago that the passing of Adam's father brought back the desire to make Dragon Fantasy (now titled Dragon Fantasy Book I).

As far as generic 8-bit style JRPGs go, we had a great response and added a ton of content until it became the game we eventually released on PSN earlier this year.
