Little Nightmares, the hit horror platformer and puzzle game, has just announced that it will be available on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. No release date has been confirmed, but it’s expected sometime in Winter 2022.
If you’re unfamiliar with the original title, you can check out some classic gameplay in the new announcement trailer on YouTube here:
Little Nightmares released back in 2017, both profoundly creative and genuinely unsettling. The art design is nothing less than brilliant, and the puzzles found an ideal level of difficulty with clever solutions.
The game remains one of the best platformers of all time, and eventually spawned a prequel in 2021. However, the closest fans have ever gotten to a mobile Little Nightmares experience is the spinoff game Very Little Nightmares, which had the same aesthetic, but with a different visual approach.
It was certainly atmospheric, but also isometric, creating a different experience altogether. For reference, you can check out the gameplay launch trailer here:
It seems that enough time has passed, and now the original Little Nightmares will be available on devices small enough to terrify you anywhere you go. It has also arrived just in time for the Halloween season. The game has a unique approach to horror that is both elegant and fierce.
Of course, some of the immersion might be lost in translation, without a larger screen to capture all of the details and a television speaker to fill the room. And mobile gameplay might create a more casual setting for some.
However, the mobility would be perfect for bedtime or camping chills. It’ll also invite new players who may be unfamiliar with the series, or even renew interest in fans of the original.
