Turin, 25/6/2018 - MixedBag, in collaboration with game developer Marco Mastropaolo, is proud to announce Waking Violet for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita and Steam!

Waking Violet is a classic 2D top-down puzzle game, but with awesome spells and a unique time rewind mechanic.

Playing as Violet, a shy teen with a desire to grow up, you get trapped in a dream you just can't wake up from. Every puzzle solved will take you closer to waking-up and getting back to your real life, but you are in the dream for a reason, and getting out might not be as easy as it sounds…


  • 42 unforgiving levels
  • Explore a magical world and discover what (or who) is keeping you there
  • Gain mana, cast spells, fail, undo your moves and try again
  • Exciting spells: shoot fireballs, walk on water, clone yourself to solve crazy levels
  • Beautiful hand-drawn graphics with a unique style
  • Amazing downtempo music to stimulate your concentration

Waking Violet is available for preorder today on Nintendo Switch for a special price of 4.99€ / 4.99$ (full game price at launch will be 6.99€ / 6.99$). The full game will be available on June 29 on Nintendo Switch and Steam and on July 3 on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. The game will be cross buy on PlayStation.


Review codes are currently available.
