First off, Happy Mother’s Day! Go tell your mom you love her and give her a hug for me. Ok, skip the hug for me part, because that sounded weird. Recently I’ve played and completed a creepy, little game called Little Nightmares. The game was amazing. Very short, yet a ton of fun. The ending sort of left me with the shock faced emoji. It left me desiring more, so I wanted to share some of my thoughts on what this game’s purpose is and all of that jazz. This is only my theory 🙂
Ok, so in Little Nightmare’s you play as a nine year old child named Six. Six wanders around a mysterious ship full of quirky characters. Basically you start out on the bottom of the ship and make your way to the top to escape. She gets chased by a kidnapper with freakishly long arms, two speedy chief’s and finally a mysterious woman with some type of energy reducing magic. The game ends with Six escaping the ship, yet danger could be lurking close by.
Like TheRadBrad said on his channel” This is a vegetarian’s nightmare,” Constantly we see chunky sized sailors on board this cruise ship. They eat raw meat like it’s their final meal. The mysterious woman seems to have some type of control over them. I think of her like the evil witch from Snow White and the Seven Dwarf’s. She finds herself ugly. By using her dark magic, she’s making everyone else around her uglier then she believe’s she is. Many agree that Six and this woman are perhaps related. Some argue the mother found Six’s beauty as a threat, so she tried removing she and her husband. I think this game was representing a broken family. This game hardly touches on other notable figures such as the gnomes, the children, and other things lurking about the ship. There were so many questions left unanswered, so I’m positive they will create a sequel to this creepy, yet beautiful game.
