Little Nightmares’ third and final DLC chapter is out now

Thinking back, the first half of 2017 feels like an age ago, and it's hard to believe that Tarsier Studios' brilliantly creepy Little Nightmares came out less than a year back. Adam loved it to bits, with one of the few complaints being its relative brevity, although it did a lot within its limited run-time. Perhaps it's time to return to The Maw, then. The…

Little Nightmares first expansion chapter surfaces today

The first DLC story chapter has arrived in wonderful horrorshow Little Nightmares [official site]. The three-part 'Secrets of the Maw' expansion introduces another child trapped in this awful place, and the first chapter drops him into The Depths to solve watery puzzles and dodge the grasping arms of something awful named The Granny. It's out now. Have a wee peek in this trailer:

How Little Nightmares’ horrible characters were animated

This is The Mechanic, where Alex Wiltshire invites developers to discuss the inner workings of their games. This time, Little Nightmares [official site]. The figures you encounter in Little Nightmares are grotesque. Disproportioned and baggy in places they shouldn’t be, the way they look is one thing, but it’s the way they move that really clinches the deal. Their staggering, shuffling and lumbering captures the…

Little Nightmares has crept onto PC to creep you out

"I've loved almost every minute of it," our Adam said about Little Nightmares [official site] last week. Only you had no way to play it then, as it wasn't out, so all you could do was stare at it through the shop window, face pressed up against the glass. Oh, how you longed to puzzle-o-sneak-a-platform past Tarsier Studios' horrors! Good news: Little Nightmares is now…

Dodging the long-armed horrors of Little Nightmares

Little Nightmares [official site] stars a fairy tale terror tot, cloaked in a yellow hood and traipsing through a world that is a couple of sizes too big for her. She's being held captive in a horrible floating dollhouse full of long-armed, stubby-legged man-things and sad, grasping cooks. We know all this because we’ve been told before. But there’s a new trailer out which shows…

Pleased to meet BOO! Little Nightmares out April 28th

What I dig so much about Little Nightmares [official site] is that the nightmares aren't little - you are. Vast hands emerge from the shadows on snaking arms. Clammy chefs bloated like drowned corpses reach for you cowering under tables. A sea of shoes. The world of Tarsier Studios' puzzle-platformer looks dreadful in the most wonderful way. Adam will tell you it's pleasing to play…

Little Nightmares Finds True Fear In Unusual Places

It's always an odd experience, playing a horror game in a crowded convention centre. At EGX, I sat down with Little Nightmares [official site] and that it managed to work its way under my skin despite the surroundings is as glowing as any praise I can direct toward this gorgeous, uncanny creation. The graphics and setting, somewhere between the Grimmest of fairy tales, Dark Water…

Little Nightmares Dreams Up Grim But Whimsical Trailer

There's a new trailer for Little Nightmares [official site] - a kind of sneaky fantasy horror puzzler with an art style that nods to stop motion hand-animated films. We wrote about it before when it was called Hunger but it looks like there's been a renaming in the run up to the devs taking a playable build to Gamescom.

Charm And Chills In A Big Scary World: Hunger

We oohed and aahed over the revelation of Hunger [Hunger] in the RPS Treehouse, circling around and holding our hands up to the teaser trailer as if it were a beautiful little fire warming our spirits. It looks like the sort of Eastern European stop-motion short you might find on Channel 4 late at night years ago, coupling a beautiful miniature-ish, dollhouse-y look with a…
