Last Day of June is the Next PS4 Game From Murasaki Baby Developers

Murasaki Baby developer Ovosonico has announced its next project will be the PS4 game Last Day of June.

The game - a puzzler about love and loss, according to the developers - has already attracted some talent from outside the gaming industry: musician and record producer Steven Wilson and Jess Cope of Frankenweenie fame are on-board for the title, and similarly to the last game from the studio, it'll have heavy Tim Burton inspirations.

Last Day of June is a poignant single-player journey that progresses participants from a viewer joining Carl and June on what begins as a magical outing to their favorite spot, to a character deeply intertwined in the narrative, as they try to unlock the sequence of events that could save the day – and June’s life.

In this cinematic experience, players will solve emotionally challenging puzzles in an attempt to turn back time, compelling them to ask themselves “What would you do to save the one you love?”

“With Last Day of June, my vision is to create a riveting emotional experience that connects with the broader audience of human beings,” said Massimo Guarini, founder and CEO, Ovosonico. “People feel comfortable broadly saying they don’t like videogames without ever really trying them, but never say that about movies or music or art – there’s always something they can identify with. I believe games can be just as universal and relatable, and that’s what we’re attempting to show with this project.”

The game will be published on PS4 by 505 Games in 2017 - a more specific release window does not yet exist.

Check out the launch trailer below:

  • Steven Wilson is a seriously talented musician. That alone has piqued my interest.
  • Considering how broken their last game was, I'll be avoiding this until the user reviews come in.
  • I'll be a little upset if this doesn't release on the last day of June.
  • First suda and yamaoka and now Steven Wilson...Now thats what i call going balls to the wall for a developer!!
