For a majority of the 2010’s, developer Playdead captivated the gaming world with its eerie and thought-provoking work on games such as Limbo and Inside. But they weren’t the only studio creating gorgeous yet grotesque sidescrolling spaces for players to delight in. Back in 2017, Tarsier Studios introduced players to the character Six and the world of Little Nightmares.
The game follows our raincoat-clad heroine on a twisted tale through The Maw, a creepy underwater structure that houses only the most ghoulish of creatures. Six is tiny compared to the rest of the inhabitants of The Maw and can’t hang in a fight. Thus our small protagonist must sneak around and solve the many thrilling puzzles littered throughout the decrepit world. Its design lends itself nicely to the category of little person, big world, so you know Jeff Cork is all in.
Speaking of Jeff, join Andrew Reiner, Cork, Marcus Stewart, and me as we sneak through the harrowing hallways of Little Nightmares and try to make it through without dying (I have my doubts).
