The reviews for Little Nightmares have just landed and the game has been praised for its creepy aesthetic and its simple yet enticing gameplay. You can check out some of the reviews it has received below.
Polygon – 8.5/10
“Little Nightmares is the creation of the Swedish Tarsier Studios, which previously worked on the far cuter and cuddlier LittleBigPlanet series. For all that Little Nightmares is unquestionably a horror game, there is something a bit precious about it; like Limbo and Inside, it’s a game about someone small and helpless working their way through a dangerous and frightening world.” [Read Full Review]
Video Gamer – 9/10
“Little Nightmares is frightening. Not in a jump scare way, like turning a corner in Outlast and having an angry man yell at you, but in a way that gets under your skin. A way that whispers in your ear that you won’t sleep well tonight. Little Nightmares takes things you were afraid of when you were a kid, and reminds you you’re still afraid of them now.” [Read Full Review]
Destructoid – 8.5/10
“Little Nightmares could use better pacing, perhaps more build-up in the first chapter, but even in its calmer moments it retains your interest with its macabre world and simple yet goosebumps-inducing gameplay. You constantly feel like a crippled gazelle limping around a lion’s den. I’m excited to watch others play and panic the way I did.” [Read Full Review]
Eurogamer – Recommended
“Little Nightmares is everything you may have loved about LittleBigPlanet thrown into a sausage grinder with everything you may have dreaded in Silent Hill. A side-scrolling 3D platformer that conjures up a wealth of grisly implications within a brisk five-hour runtime, it reapplies Media Molecule’s conceit of playing a nimble tot among gargantuan domestic objects to a fetid, ocean-going warren of beaten metal and oozing flesh, touched a little questionably by imagery derived from the atrocities of the 20th century.” [Read Full Review]
Little Nightmares will be released on April 28 2017 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
