Little Nightmares

This year's Gamescom didn't have much in terms of big news (aside from pissing in Death Stranding) - but one announcement that did sneak up on everyone was Little Nightmares 2: the sequel to Tarsier Studios' spooky platformer from 2017. Coming out next year, the game looks like it's bringing plenty of additions to the original formula, including a new character, different locations, two-character gameplay, and some form of "combat"... if that's what you can call the ladle fight going on in the announcement video.

Naturally, the trailer left fans asking plenty of questions, with many assuming the two-character gameplay meant co-op, and others wondering whether the ladle-slamming combat would form a core component of the game. I pitched these questions to lead producer Lucas Roussel and senior narrative designer Dave Mervik at Gamescom, who were able to answer some (but not all) fan queries, and also give some insight into the game design decisions behind Little Nightmares 2 and its new theme of "escapism".

Is this a direct sequel to the first game, and when does it take place?

The doughy and wonderfully unpleasant horrors of Little Nightmares will return next year in a sequel, Bandai Namco announced today. Little Nightmares II will send us out into the wider world as another spooky wee kid, this time a lad with a paper bag on our head, and our yellow-coated pal from the first game is coming along. She’ll be an AI-controlled friend keeping us company on our puzzle-platforming adventure, sadly not a chum for cooperative multiplayer. Though I’m not sure my usual co-op pals would be much use when we’re shouting “WHAT IS THIS AWFUL DOUGH-CHEESE-MEAT-MELT PERSON?” anyway. Anyway! Meet some of the new horrors in the announcement trailer.

Little Nightmares

A sequel to the creepy indie platformer, Little Nightmares, has been announced at Gamescom.

The game looks like it will follow on from Six's escape at the end of the first game, and will see her join up with a new second character named Mono.

Trailer footage shown during the Opening Night Live Gamescom stream is in engine, and shows the characters exploring the outside world and entering the Signal Tower, a main area the story will be set in.

Little Nightmares

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 third and final chapter of Little Nightmares’ DLC ‘B-side’ has been released, and the journey of The Kid is soon to come to an end. You’ve plumbed The Depths, and delved into The Hideaway, but it’s time to accept your invitation to The Residence.

Little Nightmares

Tarsier Studio's darkly adorable Little Nightmares has just received its final piece of story DLC, known as The Residence.

The Residence marks the end to the adventures of flop-haired protagonist The Runaway Kid, whose journey began in Little Nightmares' original DLC episode, The Depths. The Runaway Kid's grim tale continued through the bowels of the horrifying ocean-bound vessel The Maw in The Hideaway, and concludes with a visit to the home of The Lady - who you might remember from Little Nightmares' main story.

"Armed only with his flashlight", says publisher Bandai Namco, "The Kid will have to repel the nightmarish illusions and dodge the traps set in the twisted library. As he goes to meet his fate, The Kid will shed light on the darkest secrets of The Maw..."
