Sony shows their Halloween spirit in this new trailer for The Puppeteer

In case you missed it, back in September we posted a video on a strange side-scrolling action-platformer called The Puppeteer — arguably one of Sony’s most unique announcements for 2013. The game is set in a magical puppet theater, and invites players to traverse a world filled with giant set pieces and twisted yet likable characters. 

This trailer does a fantastic job of capturing the mood and setting of the game, and also showcases a bit of gameplay along the way. You’ll notice that as you move through levels in the game, it’s not the character who moves, but rather the set on stage that changes behind him. 

There’s no official release date yet, but the game is expected to come out sometime in early 2013.
