A Juggler’s Tale is a 2.5D side-scrolling adventure presented in the form of a puppet play and nominated for Best Student Game at last year’s IGF. Players must navigate the unique string based control scheme to solve puzzles, escape danger, and help the marionette Abby achieve true freedom - no strings attached.
Layers of meaning - Inspired by German puppet theatre, the string-based mechanics add a novel layer to the puzzle-solving while also tying into themes of autonomy and destiny.
A land far, far away - Become immersed in a dangerous fairytale world, brought to life with rich colours and a blend of 2D and 3D art styles.
Master storyteller - Enjoy a fully voiced and lyrical narration throughout the game, as Abby’s story is told by a mysterious puppetmaster.
Overcome great challenges - Help Abby survive, escaping traps, bypassing dangers, and gradually defying the pull of the strings themselves.
Against all odds - Experience a somewhat grim yet hopeful adventure that explores the true meaning of freedom.
"Abby, Abby... Don't you see, the threads holding you up – also hold you back."
About kaleidoscube - ‘kaleidoscube’ began with Dominik Schön, Enzio Probst, Steffen Oberle and Elias Kremer, four students with a shared love of densely atmospheric games. Together they created the first demo for A Juggler’s Tale, sweeping the Game Connection Europe in 2019 and also winning “Best Newcomer Prototype” at the German Computer Games Awards. Since then they’ve expanded into a motley crew of artists, sound designers and animators, working together to bring the final project to life. A Juggler’s Tale will launch on the 29th of September. www.kaleidoscube.com
