Double Fine studio lead Tim Schafer and the Cookie Monster star in this new short for upcoming Kinect title, Once Upon A Monster.

The first of the shorts showed the game’s initial pitch and reception. Schafer seems to be enjoying collaborating with the Sesame Street team to produce these live-action promos.

“The bad news is my acting has not improved. The good news is they let me keep the chewed-up xbox prop!” he tweeted.

Sesame Street: Once Upon A Monster sees players exploring a storybook populated by the famous muppets, playing mini-games in their efforts to lend a helping hand. It began life in the developer’s Amnesia Fortnights along with Stacking and Costume Quest, and is expected in October.
