If nothing else, Sony’s Gamescom 2012 show will be remembered for its bias away from en vogue browns and greys towards good old-fashioned primary colours. From Tearaway and LittleBigPlanet Vita, to Diggs Nightcrawler and Ratchet & Clank: QForce, this year’s press conference was big, bright and beautiful. Heck, even Killzone: Mercenary snuck a bit of neon into its debut trailer!
But perhaps the most colourful reveal of all was larger-than-life PS3 platformer Puppeteer, currently in development at Sony’s Japan Studio. As explained in our announcement post last week, it’s an eccentric affair that sees you step into the shoes of a young chap called Kutaro who has been imprisoned in a magical puppet realm by the maleficent Moon Bear King.
The trailer – which you can remind yourself of at the bottom of this post – looks brilliantly bonkers, and we’re looking forward to bringing you more information on the game later this year as development progresses. For now though, take a look at our video interview with developer Gavin Moore for some insight into what you can expect from the title.
Please do mind the glare from our twin bald pates though, yes?
