Bandai Namco and Tarsier Studios’ Little Nightmares sounds like an interesting concept from what we’ve heard of it so far, and its recently released trailer (above) makes it all the more intriguing.
The game’s main character is your average six-year old girl who is stuck in the “worst place you can imagine” and you’ve got to get her out by resorting to doing things that kids are good at: hiding, sneaking, and “seeing things differently than grown-ups.”
Over on the PlayStation blog, Tarsier’s senior narrative designer Dave Mervik took some time to explain the game’s setting called The Maw.
The Maw is a place of extremes. The idea is that it should encapsulate this surreal experience that kids have growing up. Where you can go from playing happily one minute, to being terrified the next. Of course, we’ve exaggerated things somewhat too, which is as much a part of being a kid as anything else!
Little Nightmares launches for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC in 2017.
