Creep yourself out with this interactive Little Nightmares video demo

October 31, 2016 by Kris Ligman

This upcoming indie horror taps right into your subconscious.

Independent horror game Little Nightmares (nee Hunger) isn't due out till next year, but in the meantime you can explore its skin-crawling Jan Švankmajer- and Jean-Pierre Jeunet-inspired world through a new interactive video demo.

Structured as a choose-your-own-adventure, the demo walks you through several of the game's puzzles as you try to navigate the poor, raincoated protagonist through a terrifying meat processing facility -- where the "meat" in question isn't always clear, and the butcher preparing it is maybe not fully human either. Controls in the actual game will be a lot freer, of course, but this should give you a good idea of both the atmosphere of Little Nightmares and its simple-but-not-simplistic puzzle design. If you're put off by the first room, stick with it: it gets a lot creepier as the demo goes on.

Little Nightmares is expected to land on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC when it releases in spring 2017. Check out the official site to learn more.
