Games Like Little Nightmares
These two games from Playdead are clumped together because they are so similar in both gameplay and tone. Like Little Nightmares, both Inside and Limbo are creepy side-scrollers where you encounter dangerous enemies in very dark and mysterious environments.
Limbo has much more simplistic visuals releasing first in 2010, while Inside released later in 2016 and had a more detailed art style than its predecessor. Between the two, Inside is going to be a closer match to Little Nightmares due to the way in which the player goes about solving puzzles as well. There’s even a portion in both that is extremely similar where search lights move methodically back and forth and you have to dart behind cover to avoid being seen.
You can even buy both games in a double pack on Xbox One and PS4 for $29.99, and on Nintendo Switch, PC, and iOS separately as well.
