The Japanese Puppeteer demo was – to us at least – a disappointment. It was a hefty download for what amounted to about five minutes of play. However, the European demo – which doesn’t yet have a date – will be substantially different and much longer, according to Gavin Moore, Art Director, SCE Worldwide Studios.
“The brief interactive stage specially designed for this concept gives Japanese gamers a peak behind the curtain at the cast of Puppeteer as they prepare for the ‘big show’,” says Moore.
“The characters can be seen busily rehearsing while the crew put together the elaborate set pieces to be used in the bunraku – or ‘puppet theatre’ – that serves as the game’s setting. However, the EU demo will offer a much deeper representation of everything you can expect from the game.”
Our hands on from the E3 demo is here, and we’ll have much more on Puppeteer soon…
