Puppeteer on PS3: Japan Studio on Taming Its Unruly Teenager

50°
28w ago - Sony Blog Manager Fred Dutton shared details on Puppeteer for PS3 today from Japan Studio on taming its unruly teenager below.

To quote: All games are the product of individual creators, and while it's occasionally hard to see it, all are duly imbued with the personalities of the artists that first breathed life into them.

As anyone who's played it will surely know, this is no more true than it is with PS3 platformer Puppeteer. Japan Studio's sublime adventure drips with charisma, character and, above all, passion.

With its launch last month now disappearing into the rear view mirror, we stopped by creator Gavin Moore's Tokyo office recently to find out how such an idiosyncratic and personal project got made, and what it's like having to let go and hand it over to the game-buying public after three years of hard work.

Read on for some fascinating insight into the creative process, and for an exclusive glimpse at some never-before-seen artwork from the game.

Oh, and if you haven't found the time to play it yet, I urge you to do so! It's one of the year's finest. To see more trailers, screens, and, of course, grab...
 

Video: Puppeteer Out Today, PlayStation 3 Launch Trailer Unveiled

100°
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...
 

Sony Introduces The Boss Battles of Puppeteer on PS3 - Part 2

50°
33w ago - Following up on Part 1, today Sony Worldwide Studios Art Director Gavin Moore returns with the second installment introducing the boss battles of Puppeteer on PS3 below.

To quote: Hello everyone! I just got back from Germany where I had the amazing opportunity to discuss Puppeteer with so many people while at Gamescom. And, since Puppeteer is on the brain, I figured why not showcase the rest of the bosses in the game to you all.

So, take a look at the final six Generals as well as some small details about the Moon Bear King. Puppeteer is almost out and I can't wait for everyone to lose their head!

General Dragon

Appearance: Not a typical, solidly built Western dragon, but a Chinese-style flying, serpentine beast, with gemstones in his hands.

Personality: Brought up on the streets of the city of the Moon, Dragon is a wise guy. He is always saying "forget about it", although no one ever does and Dragon makes sure they don't.

Relationships: Dragon obeys the MBK like a "Made Man" to a "Don." Though Kutaro does not realize it, it was Dragon who snatched his soul from Earth and brought to the Moon.

35w ago - Sony Worldwide Studios Art Director Gavin Moore introduced the Boss Battles of Puppeteer on PS3 (Part 1) today, with details below as follows:

The stage is set, and the show's about to begin for Puppeteer! I'm excited to share some of my craziness with you today.

But, before Puppeteer is released across the globe, I wanted to provide a glimpse of whom our friend, Kutaro, is really up against as he battles the Moon Bear King's (MBK) Generals. So, take a look below and get acquainted with six of the 13 bosses from Puppeteer.

Can't picture yourself going up against the Generals? No need to worry! We created these lovely snippets showcasing the magic you will soon experience. Make sure to check back soon to see the final six Generals!

General Tiger

Appearance: A gigantic tiger with a Moonstone shard for his left canine. His tail ends with a spiked iron ball, like a mace.

Personality: A true paper tiger, kowtowing to the tough, and browbeating the weak. Reflecting his personality, General Tiger has a slightly lewd turn of phrase. Earlier in his life, he was a complete coward.

Relationships: Tiger is overawed and obsequious to the Moon Bear King to an unnecessary degree. He treats the Witch, Ying Yang, the puppets, and the grubs with...
