Little Nightmares

After years spent working on the Little Big Planet games for Sony’s Vita handheld – the most kid-friendly, cuddly games imaginable – Swedish studio Tarsier goes digging deep into its id with Little Nightmares. A Grimm’s Fairy Tales-meets-Limbo adventure, this dark and decidedly twisted take on the puzzle platformer has you making your way through a mysterious vessel called The Maw as a little girl, “Six” while trying to avoid a series of gruesome deaths that may or may not involve meat cleavers and/or meat grinders. The whole thing is dripping with atmosphere as well as dread, thanks to it’s Wallace & Gromit art style and creepy lighting effects.
