A Puppet Wants to Know its Purpose in A Juggler’s Tale
A Juggler’s Tale is an artistic and aesthetically pleasing indie title that follows a puppet’s journey to discover its identity and purpose in the world. The journey to self discovery is tough, and even humans who go down this route sometimes never find the answers they are looking for, so will a puppet survive to answer the question?
A Juggler’s Tale follows the story of Abby the puppet, who escapes her masters and wanders through the world searching for answers. Players will have to overcome physics-based puzzles and challenges, and you will have to use the environment and elements around you to your advantage. Here is a brief description of the game’s background:
The string puppet Abby flees from her captors into freedom and adventure: a world of beauty and wonder – but also danger!
She finds herself in a war-torn, medieval fairytale, surrounded by ravaged, starving citizens and hunted by the relentless cut-throat, Tonda.
Who can she trust? Can she avoid the traps and betrayal?
Despite dangling from her threads, Abby learns that she can still influence her destiny – if only by winning over the audience.
Help Abby navigate a traumatized, yet hauntingly beautiful world.
Lead her forward through riddles and around traps, evade her pursuers and find – perhaps – freedom!
A Juggler’s Tale is still in early development but already won several awards in indie-focused conventions. Check out the game’s wonderful trailer below.
