At last year’s Gamescom convention, the world got its first glimpse of the PlayStation Vita exclusive, Murasaki Baby. Back then, it was confirmed only for Europe but today we learn that this game is also heading to North America.
Sony Computer Entertainment of America’s Michael Pulst had this to say about the game:
In the game, Baby wakes up in a dream world, envisioned by a child’s fantastical imagination and populated by weird and wonderful characters. In her hand is a purple heart-shaped balloon. She has lost her mommy, and it’s the player’s role to be her guardian. Take her hand, and guide her on a fantastic journey through the nightmarish land.
As you travel through the dream world, you will encounter many situations that will require lateral thinking to navigate. Using PS Vita’s rear touch pad, you can switch the mood of the game from serene green fields to a scary hellish world. It’s up to you to figure out how to use the tools at your disposal to keep Baby safe and navigate through the story.
Judging by the description and the trailer, this looks to be one of the most unique and twisted games that will come out this year. The touch mechanics seem well implemented and the art style is visually striking and disturbing.
