Studio behind Vita version of LittleBigPlanet originally revealed horror adventure title in early 2014

Tarsier Studios partners with Bandai Namco to turn Hunger into Little Nightmares

Swedish independent developer Tarsier Studios has resurfaced with a new publishing partner and a fresh name for its horror game Hunger.

Hunger was first unveiled in early 2014 as an atmospheric horror adventure game starring a raincoat-clad girl attempting to escape the monstrous ship, The Maw.

Tarsier has inked a publishing deal with Bandai Namco, and has subsequently rebranded the game as Little Nightmares.

While further details remain scarce, the pair have teased further details for next week’s Gamescom.

Little Nightmares is Tarsier’s first fully independent project, with the team having previously contributed to other studios’ games, including LittleBigPlanet Vita, Tearaway Unfolded, Rag Doll Kung Fu and LittleBigPlanet 3.

"Little Nightmares symbolises the evolution of our strategy to further strengthen the company portfolio with titles developed from all over the world," commented Bandai Namco Europe marketing VP Herve Hoerdt.

"As we continue to explore new ways to experience our IPs, we couldn’t have found a better partner than Tarsier Studios to fulfill this vision and we’re extremely proud to show their incredible talent to the world by publishing their first in-house project."
