Update: Two new levels!

We just updated Little Bug with two new bonus levels!
They're both heavily centered on gaining momentum with big swinging motions - something that we would have liked to explore more in the main story.

This brings the current bonus level count to 16. We'll leave it up to you to discover which items unlock these new levels, but we plan on adding more in the coming months. There are 33 items after all.

We're designing new bonus levels and we want to hear from you!

When we were in the home stretch of Little Bug, we had some gameplay ideas that didn't quite fit in the story - so we put them in bonus levels.

Very soon, we are going to upload a few more - but before we do, we want to hear your thoughts on what would make a fun, wacky, bizarre and/or challenging Little Bug level!

No idea is a bad idea here. I made one where the camera is flipped upside down, and the only way I can beat it is by physically flipping my monitor upside down! The point is to mess with the design however possible.

We've been loving the feedback from our community and we want to put some of that directly into the game. If you want to contribute your bonus level idea, leave a comment here or join us on discord: https://discord.gg/littlebug

“Little Bug definitely is setting the bar on how much more interesting indie games can be, especially when it comes to gathering lore and stories...”
8/10 – IGN

“This dreamy little platformer is far more than it seems at first glance. It's a story about intergenerational trauma, magic, fungi, and healing, all told through the eyes of a little black girl on a journey between worlds.”
Forbes

About This Game

Get Nyah Home: Nyah is walking home from school when she's suddenly cast into an uncanny world where dangerous spirits linger restlessly in bottomless canyons and moonlit deserts. Play as Nyah and her spirit light in tandem, using their shared swinging mechanic to gain incredible momentum.

Gameplay Features
  • Coordinate 2 characters who share a physics-based swinging mechanic.
  • Discover hidden collectibles and piece together Nyah's backstory.
  • Offer your finds to Roadkill the cat to unlock bonus levels featuring unique gameplay challenges.
  • Generous checkpoints let you play at your own pace.

Simple Controls, Complex Gameplay: Nyah can walk on the ground and collect treasures while her light can fly in any direction - you control them both at the same time. Forming a telekinetic beam between them, you’ll create a powerful connection that can swing Nyah to new heights, destroy barriers, thwart spirits and light the way to secret locations. Your coordination with these two characters is key, as disembodied spirits can appear without warning and hurt Nyah or her light. You’ll learn their unique play style intuitively and quickly as fresh challenges emerge to test you in the wilderness.

Discover Dozens of Unique Items: Collect dozens of unique treasures in Nyah's lunchbox that reveal memories from Nyah’s past and rearrange them however you like. Decide which items to keep with you on your journey and which to offer to the mysterious spirit cat Roadkill, who can unlock secret challenge levels with special items.


About Nyah: Nyah is a curious 8-year-old who loves exploring nature and studying life science. She shares treasures from her explorations with her teacher, Ms. Bisbee. Nyah lives with her single mom and baby sister, Isa, but Mom seems tired and different from how she used to be. Sometimes Nyah stays with her grandma who feeds Nyah's imagination with her quirky wisdom, but maybe grandma’s stories have more truth than Nyah ever could have believed.
