Little Nightmares authors working on a new game

With Little Nightmares 2 released now over a year ago, the talented team at Tarsier Studios have hailed their dark series. Many have enjoyed both the first and second installments of this franchise and now we wonder what these Swedish guys will churn out in the future. We already know that the team has something completely new in the works, but until a few hours ago no one had any clue about the next game from the software house.

To allow us to take a first look what will be the future of Tarsier was the same Swedish team, which updated their social profiles with a curious content to say the least. The authors of the Little Nightmares series are back in action by releasing a short teaser that allows us to take a look at the studio's next project. At the moment we don't know anything about the game, but from the teaser a series of details emerge that will raise the antennas to the fans of the team.

We've been busy.

The last image is the most difficult to decipher, but if you stop on the details you can peer a kind of monstrous presence at the top of the image. That's all we know about the new project from the Little Nightmares writers. We don't know how long it will take before we see something more concrete about the game, but three unclear images were enough to raise curiosity about this new project.

Little Nightmares studio teases something new and just as creepy

Little Nightmares developer Tarsier Studios has published an ominous video to their Twitter account, teasing the release of something new. 

Shared on May 24, the studio published a tweet with the caption: 'We’ve been busy.' Along with a vague video containing several unrecognizable images. The video is only six seconds long (a coincidence?) and contains what looks like an old decrepit building, a car driving along an empty highway, and several goblin-looking legs and a pair of hands sitting on top of the previously mentioned building. 

See what you can make out from the mysterious video below. 

Of course, we’re all hoping that it could be some kind of Little Nightmares follow up, either in the form of some Little Nightmares 2 DLC, or maybe even Little Nightmares 3. But unfortunately for die-hard Six and Mono fans, it may actually be something completely new. This is due to the fact that it was previously reported that Tarsier was shifting to new IP after the release of Little Nightmares 2. 

Don’t hang up your little yellow raincoats just yet though, as there have also been hints about more Little Nightmares content ever since the release of Little Nightmares 2 back in February 2021. First of all, there was the fan that discovered potential DLC integration in the Little Nightmares 2 menu. Although a very small hint, we wouldn’t be too surprised if the sequel did get some additional content as the first game in the series did, in the form of the Secrets of the Maw DLC. 

It was also revealed shortly after this that Tarsier was working on 'two new games' via a number of job listings at the studio. These two games were, and still mostly are, a mystery but one of the job listings did ask for 'an art director with a strong portfolio and passion for creating games within the visual style of Little Nightmares.'

This doesn’t confirm that we’re getting a new Little Nightmares game but if anything, it kind of confirms that we may at least be getting another game similar to the horror-puzzle platformer, which is also great news.
