If you enjoyed the side scrolling puzzle games Limbo and Inside, you’re going to love Little Nightmares.
After waking up in the bowels of a pitch black prison, you guide the rain-coated little girl Six as she tries to escape captivity. Along the way, you pass through a nursery overseen by a long-armed child grabber, a kitchen terrorized by a maniacal cook, a mess hall filled with diners willing to eat just about anything, and ultimately, the quarters of a mask-wearing, mirror averse madame who will do anything to keep you trapped.
Like Limbo and Inside, Little Nightmares is a wordless, mostly-2D puzzle game. It story is also a mystery leaving you to wonder and speculate as to just what the heck is going on. Even though correct alignment for jumping and running can be a bit tricky, not of the levels are frustratingly difficult. What is frustrating is the long load times. Waiting to revive after falling off a ledge or being caught by an enemy can be pretty annoying. Still, you should be able to get through the entire game in just a few hours.
If you have a long weekend and a high tolerance for creepiness, give Little Nightmares a try.
