Murasaki Baby | Vita

I love to cover games that catch my eye, and I was downright captivated and creeped out by the visuals in the upcoming Vita game Murasaki Baby. Developed by Ovosonico and directed by Massimo Guarini (of Killer 7, No More Heroes and Shadows of the Damned fame) with art in the style of Edward Gorey and music by Akira Yamaoka, it will launch this September as a digital download.

The game has a very distinct and off beat style that looks like a mixture of Nightmare Before Christmas and Where the Wild Things Are. Using touch controls and by rotating the Vita, you can control where Baby ventures and get her from point A to point B safely. Lead her through a land of nightmares to reunite her with her mother (who, given Baby’s looks, I can only imagine is utterly terrifying). Mood will apparently play a large role in the game, and by swiping the Rear Touch, you can affect the moods of Baby and other characters, such as Bunny Boy.

From what I can see, the game looks pretty unique, and should make a welcome addition to Vita owners. It will launch for $14.99 September of this year. Until then, enjoy this freaky little trailer.
