New Murasaki Baby gifs showcase gameplay features

Take a closer look at the dark, stylish PS Vita exclusive

Hello PlayStation fans! Since our announcement of Murasaki Baby at Gamescom last year, the team at Ovosonico has been hard at work perfecting the game. Today we wanted to share some details on the gameplay in Chapter 3 with you.

In Murasaki Baby, Baby wakes up in a nightmarish dream world with all sorts of frightening creations straight from a child’s imagination. So far, on her journey to find her Mommy, Baby has made two new friends and used eight background mood powers in the previous two chapters.

For those of you who may not recall, as you and Baby journey through this nightmarish land, you’ll make use of the various backgrounds and their powers to help, guide and protect her. Using PS Vita’s rear touch screen, you can swipe with your finger to switch between backgrounds.

Below are four new background moods that Baby comes across in this chapter of the game:


The black and white background is called the “Heart of Stone.” Tapping the PS Vita’s rear touch pad will make Baby’s balloon magically become as heavy as stone. Perfect for the occasion when you need something solid to hold on to.

The blue background is called “Frozen Hell” and will freeze just about anything, including Baby’s balloon. While it’s great to freeze bodies of water, be careful not to leave it active for too long or Baby’s balloon will shatter.

When the green background, “The eye of scrutiny”, is activated, Baby will shrink. While in this tiny state, Baby’s balloon will lift her high into the air.

Finally, there’s the red background which is neutral. While there are no great powers to take advantage of here, when the red background is active, Baby becomes calm.

We hope you enjoyed this brief look into Chapter 3. Stay tuned to PlayStation Blog for more information on Murasaki Baby!

Looking forward to this being released, the original trailer looked great.

Loved this game ever since I saw it first at the conference, it’s cool how many of the Vita’s features are incorporated into the gameplay. When will it be released?

I hope it will be cheap , it makes no sense if its more than 6 euros

The thing that interested me most about this game is the art style, looking forward to its release

This is gonna be a belter!

I’m gonna throw a wild idea in the air, that the ps4 (and maybe also the Vita) could do nicely with a .gif creator.

For your consideration, Sony.

Been keeping my eye on this one for a while. Hope it plays as good as it looks!!

Not sure what’s so special about this it looks odd plus I don’t like the name.

Looks very interesting, makes you want to play it even more.
