"Little Nightmares" is a creepy and mysterious horror game by Bandai Namco which was announced at Gamescom last August 2016. It is a puzzle game developed by Tarsier Studios which is set to release in 2017.

The "Little Nightmares" game was originally titled "Hunger." Some say it is like looking something out of a Tim Burton movie. The game has equal parts of weird and astounding creepiness in the best way possible.

The nine-year old girl main character of the "Little Nightmares" game is called Six. Six is kidnapped from her home and taken to work in the place called Maw, a surreal underwater resort catering to the whims of the powerful elite people.

When an unexpected twist of fate offers Six a chance of freedom, she takes a journey through the bizarre and unpredictable world of Maw and catches a look at the heart of modern happiness. "Little Nightmares" will test the player's analytical ability with this puzzle like game.

Tarsier Studios first announced the "Little Nightmares" in 2014 under the title "Hunger." The game maker became silent about the game in February 2015 after they released a teaser. Nothing was heard about the project until August 2016 when Bandai Namco Entertainment announced their entry into a worldwide publishing agreement with Tarsier.

The "Little Nightmares" game focuses on the creepy factor rather than the cheap jump scares that typical horror games rely and succeeds. Even in a loud convention hall, the haunting vibe of the game is very clear to the player. The graphics are also obviously haunting, but being chased by characters like the large and twisted-looking chef is genuinely tense.

According to Mirror, "Little Nightmares" graphical design is its selling point and so long as the idea of another puzzle platformer game doesn't completely turn you off. The footage of the game should be enough of a selling factor in itself. The game will launch digitally on PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One in spring 2017.
