Little Big Planet Vita co-developer Tarsier Studios announced their upcoming project today at the Nordic Game Conference. Called Hunger (working title), the game is described as being a 3D action adventure game incorporating stealth and exploration.
At the center of the game is Six, a young girl who has been abducted and sent to work in The Maw, a “surreal underwater resort catering to the whims of the powerful elite.” When she’s offered the chance to escape, Six goes on a journey through the Maw that allows her to catch “a glimpse at the corrupt heart of modern happiness.” It’s unclear at this time on which platforms the game will appear, although the team did sign on as a first-party developer with Sony four years ago, making it likely for the game to make its way to PlayStation platforms.
Although not much about the game is known at this time, it definitely seems like a departure from the cute and quirky world of Little Big Planet. Given how well-received the game was on Vita, we’re hopeful that Hunger is equally as neat an experience. .
