Little Nightmares looks like an eerie little adventure

little nightmaresFirst revealed at E3 in 2015 as a title called ‘Hunger’, Tarsier Studios showed off their game again at Gamescom this week under the new title ‘Little Nightmares’.

“Little Nightmares presents a grim shadow-filled adventure through an interactive storyline, outstanding sound design, and a unique art-style that is sure to deliver eerie chills and goosebumps. Players will discover that LITTLE NIGHTMARES blurs the lines between dreams and nightmares as they explore The Maw in an effort to escape its nightmarish confines.”

Initially shown off at the PlayStation media briefing in 2015, I was gobsmacked by it, and hoped it would appear on multiple platforms. Thankfully, Tarsier Studios have teamed up with Bandai Namco to publish it, and it will be making its way to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC sometime in 2017.

Embark on a Grim Adventure – Confront your childhood fears in this darkly whimsical tale, set in an immersive world of great sensibility, interactive storytelling, and outstanding sound design. Discover the foul secrets of The Maw and survive the attentions of its monstrous residents as you bid to help Six escape to the world outside.
