Little Nightmares, the haunting and disquieting horror game from Tarsier Studios, is free right now. If you're an aficionado of the genre, we cannot recommend the game enough, and we advise you to hop to it if you want a code.
You might not have heard of Little Nightmares, but you will definitely remember the striking direction which is reminiscent of stop-motion horror movies like Coraline and Corpse Bride. The game, which is a blend of puzzles and platforming set on a mysterious submarine, follows a tiny child named Six. She awakens to discover that children are trapped in the submarine's prison, and she is stalked by the enemies wandering across the ship. Grotesque and savage creatures who seek to consume the captured children for their vitality, the player must evade these characters while attempting to resist the darkness within. It's got to be played to be believed, and luckily, it won't cost you a dime.
There are two ways to snag yourself a copy of Little Nightmares. Number one is to head on over to the Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe store where the game is being given away for free. Number two is a sweepstake, which is offered in a pop up on Bandai Namco's own website, where you enter your email address for a chance to claim a free copy. Theoretically, you could walk away with a minimum of one code and a maximum of two codes, so there really is nothing to lose. These Steam codes work for PC only, mind, and the promotion ends on January 17th.
Recently, James got the opportunity to dive into Little Nightmares 2, and he did not find it wanting. "This world may be populated by menacing monstrosities, but its somber, melancholic feel is the true horror. Colours exist in a trapped state, mid-fade into a listless monotone devoid of warmth," he said, and though he played only two levels of the sequel, he thinks its a "stellar" experience so far. Mono is the protagonist of this game, and this little guy is accompanied by a familiar face, which ups the stakes of the tense puzzle-solving and heart-wrenching stealth sections. One could say that Little Nightmares 2 is in shipshape, and that we cannot wait to sink our teeth into the rest.
