Midnight Puppeteer

Midnight Puppeteer is a puzzle-solving exploration game by Mascarpone made in Wolf RPG Editor.

Mayo and her teddy bear Mister Masper are being driven home one night by their father, when suddenly the car's engine stops.
The father heads down a nearby path to find help, and when he doesn't return, Mayo and Masper decide to follow.
There, they find a large mansion. And in the search for Mayo's father, they find much more...


The latter half of the game has quite a few lengthy cutscenes.
Mascarpone recommends not playing if you don't want to deal with that.

Supported Platforms
The game's engine is made for Windows only, with no native support for other platforms.
To play on Mac, you can try a general-purpose tool like WineBottler.




Troubleshooting

Make sure to extract the game to its own folder instead of running directly from the ZIP file.
If you don't do so, any saves made will be lost the next time you run the game.


If dialogue doesn't show up or uses the wrong font (which may cause cutoff text), download and install MS PGothic.
