Little Nightmares is a dark platformer that tells the tale of Six’s escape from a mysterious world, with puzzles focusing on the environment and the corrupted souls that inhabit it. The game is beautiful and creepy, with a unique atmosphere that makes each and every puzzle even more intense. Creeping past the grotesque creatures towards the next puzzle creates a feeling of terror, and rather than making you jump after turning every corner, it can make your skin tingle with uncertainty.
However, some critics say that the puzzles are far too easy, which removes some of the tension. In a genre dominated by Limbo and Inside, Little Nightmares’ tone and inventive setting makes is stand out. You can check out our review here.
