10 Strangest but Compelling Games on the Vita

Murasaki Baby

For something developed by Massimo Guarini (of Shadows of the Damned fame), this game was always going to be weird. It's about an abandoned baby who is searching for her mother and is very fearful. Players are tasked with guiding this baby through an eccentric world, holding her hand and protecting her from dangers.

But more than that, it's a look into how children rationalize the world around them and work through their fears of being alone. 

With a Tim Burton style artistic style, it is the player’s role to prevent the life balloon from popping. But when baby meets other people, sometimes the balloon needs to be popped. This is never explained, but simply experienced.

The game works great on the Vita touch screen too. You swipe through to move the baby or complete puzzles -- and dexterity is very much required to undertake different tasks at the same time, such as moving baby whilst killing flying baby pins.

A perfect choice for Vita that is strange but works well. You can buy Murasaki Baby for $14.99 on the PS Store.
