Looking out there - Ovosonico

In one of my previous posts i have mentioned that my inspiration goes outside the domain of animation, and this time it lands again in the domain of gaming.

This time Ovosonico falling under my radar, for their inspiring game, Murasaki Baby.
Just like the previous ones i played from Ubisfoft, Murasaki Baby was quite an emotional experience and artistic inspiration. From it i can tell that this studio has a broad perspective, they're not afraid to come out of their comfort zone and their inspiration comes from different areas.

Murasaki Baby has a Tim Burton-esque style to it, but the soundtrack is different, both its vocalist and the title is in japanese (Purple Baby), all of an Italian based studio.
The game is exclusive to PlayStation Vita, a handheld console with touch screen functionalities. It could have been available to other platforms but the experience of the player is to use the touch screen to hold the character's hand as if he was parenting her.

These are the courage to step out of a comfort zone that i was talking about. Such artistic awareness and multicultural inspiration is what would make me want to work for Ovosonico.
