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.

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 flavour of the Czech stop-motion cartoons I spent a great deal of my childhood feeling unnerved by. They re great.

It wasn t easy to reach that special state of uncanniness, especially for a small team working on its first original game, but developer Tarsier Studios started in just the right place:

Oh, how you longed to puzzle-o-sneak-a-platform past Tarsier Studios’ horrors! Good news: Little Nightmares is now out, launched last night. Here’s a launch trailer to prove it: … [visit site to read more]
