Little Nightmares looks like a suitably creepy offering from the LittleBigPlanet Vita devs

Ah just what I've always wanted. To meet my childhood fears. That's the promise of Tarsier's Little Nightmares. You might recognise the little girl in the raincoat though. This dark adventure was first teased as a game called Hunger but has changed to Little Nightmares after a publishing agreement with Bandai Namco.

The description uses the word 'whimsical' which always has dangerous connotations but the imagery so far looks suitably creepy as the girl explores a dark vessel known only as The Maw that's full of "corrupted souls looking for the next meal". Yum. The imagery's got more than a hint of French director Jean-Pierre Jeunet with the colours of the City of Lost Children and some oddly disturbing stop motion slicing of meat. I'm intrigued. Check out the trailer below.
