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.

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.

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.  
  • Original Soundtrack. All in-game music and sounds effects have been composed, created and produced in-house.
