Little Nightmares, announced just last week, has been properly revealed in this first gameplay trailer.

The ‘Deep Below The Waves’ trailer makes Little Nightmares look like a puzzle-platformer with strong horror elements, much like PlayDead’s Limbo and Inside.

The trailer challenges you to ‘Play With Your Childhood Fears’. Naturally, your fears may vary from those of the game’s creators, but that chef at the end of the trailer is pretty damn creepy.

Those weird little cone-headed things revealed by the game’s teaser site seem to play a fairly major role in the game too, although it’s not clear if they’re friends, foes, or something in-between.

Little Nightmares is published by Bandai Namco, will launch in Spring 2017 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. The game is playable for attendees at Gamescom.
