We’ve previously heard that the Puppet Master video game is coming along slightly later than intended because the developers decided to go ahead and add a single player mode to the game. The multiplayer side of things has been their main focus, but now a single player sandbox game is in the mix as well. Single player mode is called Toulon’s Journals, and will allow players to complete challenges, fight bad guys, earn experience points, and find the lost pages of puppet master Andre Toulon’s journal. The journal pages dive into the back stories of franchise characters and were written by Nat Brehmer, author of the book Puppet Master Complete: A Franchise History (pick up a copy HERE). These journals will be unlockable through audio log form in the single player mode, so you’ll be able to listen to them as you play. And listen to them again later at your own convenience, outside of the single player mode.
In a developer vlog, it was also confirmed that there will be multiplayer bot support for the human characters. So players will be able to play as the puppets, battling human bots. There’s also a game mode called Thief Game, where a player will be able to play as a human, taking on three puppets while seeking to steal the puppet master’s formula.
