OVERVIEW

Developed by Ovosonico, and directed by industry veteran award-winning Game Director Massimo Guarini, Murasaki Baby is developed exclusively for PlayStation®Vita as a digital download through the PlayStation®Network.

Murasaki Baby tells the story of a little girl who wakes up in a weird world, populated by children’s fantasies and fears. Holding a purple, heart-shaped balloon in her hand, she feels lost, homesick and vulnerable. She wants her mommy.

The player can grab Baby’s hand with his finger to guide her through a nightmarish journey to find her Mother. This peculiar interaction amplifies the emotional bonding with Baby, allowing players to live a truly unique experience.

Unconventional and artistically crafted artworks shape the world of Murasaki Baby ; players will go through a uniquely hand-drawn world of wonder. Combined with the original soundtrack, fully composed and produced in-house, the game is designed to challenge convention and move its audience.

KEY FEATURES:

  • Emotional Bond with Main Character – Grab Baby’s hand and guide her through a nightmarish journey to find her mother. Experience the emotional growth as her character changes over time towards the surroundings and the player himself. Interact with Baby through a dramatic, yet grotesque world made of quirky visions, peculiar characters, and unique environments.
 
  • Truly Original Gameplay Mechanics – Guide Baby through an unknown world full of perils and obstacles connecting with her through the touch screen. Solve problems through your interactions by teaching Baby in a completely subjective way what’s good and what’s bad. Change the mood of the game using the PlayStation®Vita back touch and use the moods to help Baby and the inhabitants of her world.
 
  • Unique Art Style – Experience a uniquely hand-drawn art style world of marvel. The grotesque world of Baby has been entirely designed by hand on paper.
