In Little Nighmares you play Six, a wee lass dressed in a yellow slicker who becomes trapped in the darkest depths of an oversized world called The Maw.

You really don’t belong here and must find a way out. Meanwhile, if you’re to survive, you must reconnect with your inner child, use your imagination and be smart, resourceful, and ready for anything.

The Maw is a place of lost things. It tells tales of long arms, endless feasts and hapless wanderers. It arrives every year but never in the same place. It buries its claws beneath the water and waits for monstrous, sweating “guests” with bulging bodies and eyes dead with boredom to start stumbling up its gangway. Those who enter are never seen again. Until now, anyway.

You’ll explore Six’s world, which takes the form of a disturbingly charming dollhouse deep inside The Maw. It becomes part dream and part nightmare.

You’ll encounter the grotesque Twin Chefs, who shuffle across a greasy kitchen floor and fill each dish with blood, sweat and tears. You’ll meet playful oddities called Nomes who, while easily spooked, are open to making friends with strangers.

You must escape this place.

Little Nightmares, from Tarsier Studios and BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment, is to be released on PS4, Xbox One and Windows in Spring 2017.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
