Play OverviewPlay Overview

A Juggler's Tale is a running and jumping game where you guide Abby, a string puppet through a dangerous world where you need to solve puzzles and avoid traps. You move crates, pull levers, jump over hazards and try to outrun chasers.

A Juggler's Tale plays like a more cheerful and colourful version of Limbo. But rather than controlling the character, you play the storyteller and puppeteer. This means you must work not only to make jumps, but also negotiate things that snag or block the strings you use to control Abby.

Your task is to escape the circus where Abby was kept captive and then face the dangers of the outside world. The gameplay is accompanied by commentary of the narrator, highlighting her fears and troubles. Puzzles revolve around the connection between the storyteller and Abby. But more than this, it's a game about trust and the things that bind us together which both help and hinder.
