Sony's Japan Studio gives new IPs a chance at Gamescom

Along with its focus on Vita at this year's Gamescom, Sony also demonstrated a refreshing willingness to take risks on new IP, revealing Puppeteer and Rain (both from Sony's Japan Studio) along with Supermassive's Until Dawn.

Puppeteer casts players as Kutaro, a boy turned into a puppet by a cruel king and trapped in a magical puppet theatre. The game is immediately reminiscent of a Tim Burtonesque LittleBigPlanet with its chunky visuals, 2D platforming and playful incursions of the fourth wall.

Whimsical and charming, with a creative art style, unique looking gameplay while still giving you the feel of old school.

It reminds me in a way of the old Sega Saturn game "Clockwork knight". Also dynamite headdy...

Also when I first saw it I thought this was a super charged new LBP level...

I love when games take a risk, and stay away from genric as much as possible...

I hope we get to see some more hands on soon, perhaps from the show we will get an upload. Along with more details.

This game looks incredible. Bringing back a 2.5D Platformer with an extremely unique style and interactive pallet to play on. The way it looks, I bet if it was in 3D it would be unbelievably interactive in real space. Regardless if it is or not, it's mine day one. I love the unique and creative. And it's something charming that will hold me over on the sidescrollers until Oddworld Abe's Oddysee HD releases next year as well.

Reminds me of Full Metal Alchemist. Sounds like the butcher serial killer dude, who has his soul transmuted to an armor similar to Alphonse. I think he was rename "66" or something.

On Topic, The game has a great atmosphere for sure, I'll be picking this us for the girl. She already finish Gravity Rush and had a blast.

I love the look of this game.
Still wish they would have hinted at anything towards a new Ape Escape game though
