Horror games are a dime a dozen nowadays, with plenty that fall under “mediocre” or “unoriginal” labels. But every once in a while, something comes along that looks infinitely promising.
The first Original IP created by Tarsier Studios, Little Nightmares is scheduled for release in Spring 2017 for the PS4, Xbox One and PC. Boasting wonderfully unsettling and atmospheric animations and sounds, the game design manages to instill horror using whimsical character designs and a stylized art direction. You play as a little girl named Six, and must find a way to escape confinement in a place called The Maw.
What little we can currently see of the game can be viewed in the trailer above, followed by a 10-minute gameplay video from IGN’s Youtube channel and some screenshots below.
