I wasn’t expecting much, just a short, free to play Silent Hill inspired horror game, but the writing, and vocal delver of said writing was just unbearably bad. The game has the gall to keep reminding the player as to where to get help in the USA if one is experiencing suicidal ideation, while having some of the most egregiously bad writing tackling topics of abuse and self-harm. I admittedly played very little of the game, perhaps it gets much better, but what I experienced was unbearable. A tone-deaf blend of self-important, heavy handed, yet embarrassing got amateurish (if not outright ignorant) in its handling of heavy topics. Or as the protagonist might summarize in a single word: “cringe.”

The worst thing about it is its length, which feels short. There is nothing wrong with short games, but while some “Journey” feel complete at the same length, Little Nightmares feels like it is missing a beat. Perhaps too much of it is sitting behind a paywall, as I didn’t purchase any of the DLC chapters. All that being said, it’s still a very good game. A highly atmospheric, artistically compelling light puzzle horror platformer. It’s well executed, exceptionally well paced, and the puzzles are always fair. If you like the way it looks, you’ll almost certainly like the way it plays, as it delivers what it promises.

Despite some rough edges, this is a fantastic sci-fi horror game, that goes unexpectedly deep into its themes. The writing is highly exceptional, the gameplay is solid, and the production values are good enough to help the story and its themes really get under your skin. Just be forewarned that this isn’t a AAA production, and there are some distractingly lower quality visual elements, but nothing serious enough to detract from the overall experience. Highly recommended to any fans of sci-fi or the existential, and a bucket list game for any fans of sci-fi horror.
