Developed by Swedish developer Tarsier Studios, Little Nightmares is set within a “vast, mysterious vessel” called The Maw, where corrupted creatures reside and are on constant lookout for their next meal. Players are cast as a young girl dressed in a yellow raincoat, and must find a mean’s of escape before she is captured by one of the monsters within The Maw.
Little Nightmares combines side-scrolling, puzzle solving, and platforming, all of which you can see in the new trailer below:
Before its official announcement, Little Nightmares was originally teased under the working title “Hunger” back in 2014.
“We are so thrilled to work together with Bandai Namco Entertainment, a company that takes great pride in their work and goes that extra mile to create amazing game experiences.” said Andreas Johnsson, Business Developer & Deputy CEO, Tarsier Studios regarding the studio’s publishing partnership with Bandai Namco. “From day one we’ve felt their passion and drive to help make Little Nightmares everything it can be.”
Little Nightmares is currently being shown off at Gamescom in Cologne, Germany, so anyone in attendance has a chance to check out Tarsier Studio’s game ahead of its 2017 launch. Those interested should find Bandai Namco’s booth, located in Hall 8, booth B20 of the Gamescom Entertainment Area.
