Tarsier Studios’ Little Nightmares wins the Gamescom Indie Award

Little Nightmares, a horror puzzle game made by Tarsier Studios and published by Bandai Namco, won this year’s Indie Award at Gamescom 2016.

The game was originally called Hunger and there were no news about it for quite a while. However, in August 2016, it was announced that the project was renamed to Little Nightmares and that Bandai Namco has taken over all publishing duties for the game. It seems like Bandai has been doing a great job, having the game appear more and more in the public eye.

According to a press release by the company, Little Nightmares will make us remember all our childhood fears as we help our hero, Six, who is trying to escape the Maw, a vast, mysterious vessel inhabited by corrupted souls looking for their next meal. The game is described as both grim and whimsical, while its art style personally reminds me of stop motion films.
