Little Nightmares

I’ve been trying to make it my goal to FINISH more games.  I tend to start a game, get through the first chapter or boss or area, and then I’m done.  Sometimes it’s due to time, either I got a late start and need sleep, or sometimes the checkpoint/saves in the games are really far apart, so I know I wont be able to get to another save before (insert whatever life drama comes up).  Sometimes I don’t finish a game cause I’m just, not, feeling it.  You’ve had games like that, everyone tells you how great it is, and it’s just not your thing, for whatever reason.  Most of the time my reason for not completing a game….a new game!!  I have the attention span of a gnat when it comes to games.  I love playing games but for me to stay with one game, start to finish, is RARE!  

I picked up Little Nightmares from the The September 2018 Humble Bundle.  I had seen other people play it and heard good things about it, but never really could talk myself into buying it.  So when it showed up in the bundle, it seemed like a perfect time to dive into it.

First off, this game definitely struck a chord with me.  I was immediately drawn in to the world and really wanted to help my raincoat wearing character stay safe.  I loved how the hanging lights in each room created a creepy atmosphere and help create good hiding areas for me.  The art style was perfect at adding to the scariness in each area also.  

I will admit I was lost on the story some, like why was I there, why were those people eating soo much, why did they want to eat me, and who was the woman at the end?

Overall this was a fun game and about as scary of a game as I am willing to do, especially on stream, you do not need to see me scream!  I highly recommend it.  

Here is one of my favorite parts of the game.  It really shows off how the lighting and the sound can add to the experience  and the intensity of what’s going on.  

Have you played Little Nightmares?  If so, what did you think of it?  Any suggestions of smaller games I should check out?

Thanks for stopping by!
