    A Juggler’s Tale – A runaway marionette searches for freedom in a grimm fairytale world on PC, Xbox, PS4/5 and Switch this September 29th

    Indie studio kaleidoscube and publisher Mixtvision have published a new trailer, announcing the release date for their upcoming adventure game ‘A Juggler’s Tale’. The string-based puzzle platformer is due to launch on PC, Xbox, PlayStation 4 & 5 and Nintendo Switch on September 29th.

    ‘This has been an ambitious project from the beginning – also because we developed the game during our studies. But thanks to the hard work of everyone on the small team, we are hopeful we were able to realize those ambitions and that players will experience the game just as we first imagined it. It’s a very nice feeling.’

    Dominik Schön – Game Designer of A Juggler’s Tale and co-founder of kaleidoscube

    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.

    “We are glad that kaleidoscube trusted us to help them develop and bring this indie gem to the market. It is amazing to see how the team’s passion and spirit really shines through in every detail of the game. We can’t wait to have players who are looking for a very special cinematic platformer play this wonderful puppeteering adventure.”
