Having missed playing the original, I wasn't too sure what to expect diving into Little Nightmares II -- outside of the impressive art direction and presentation. I'd like to say it was a pleasant surprise, but tapping into childhood fear in a way we rarely see, in an experience that is terrifying without a single drop of blood that word seems out of place. Anyway, it's great.
Little Nightmares II is wonderful, captivating, creepy, and unsettling in equal measure - tapping into childhood fear and horror in a way that feels both deeply personal and like a distant, unknown memory. On that front many of its, well, ‘moments’ are memorable -- stuff that might linger and stick with you for some time. If you’ve ever had a bad dream or series of nightmares as a kid, no doubt some of the imagery here will be as weirdly familiar as it is original and otherworldly.
