[Watch] 7 minutes of Little Nightmares is enough to make you reflect on your childhood fears
One nightmare at a time
Little Nightmares is a game that takes aim at your childhood fears in the form of a LIMBO-inspired puzzle platformer. It's not a horror game in the traditional sense, but rather it chooses instead to have a more whimsical side to its story, not unlike that of something like A Nightmare Before Christmas. In Little Nightmares, players guide the protagonist through The Maw, a vessel home to some corrupted souls looking to eat you.
Undoubtedly, the monster under your bed kind of stuff, right?
Here's the game's official description per its Steam page:
"Immerse yourself in Little Nightmares, a dark whimsical tale that will confront you with your childhood fears! Help Six escape The Maw – a vast, mysterious vessel inhabited by corrupted souls looking for their next meal. As you progress on your journey, explore the most disturbing dollhouse offering a prison to escape from and a playground full of secrets to discover. Reconnect with your inner child to unleash your imagination and find the way out!"
Little Nightmares releases on PC, PS4, and Xbox One on April 28th, 2017.
