Little Nightmares is currently free to keep on Steam

Little Nightmares can be yours for nothing on Steam.

The rather dark and whimsical Little Nightmares is currently 100% off on Steam for the next few days.

It stars Six, a little girl trapped in a prison called The Maw where every room is a puzzle. Six’s mission is to escape, evading a particular enemy who probably wants to eat her.

As you progress on your journey, you will explore a disturbing dollhouse offering a prison to escape from and a playground full of secrets.

The game won at The Games Awards 2016 for Best Independent Game and took home four BAFTA Awards for Original Property, Game Design, Artistic Achievement, and Narrative.

It was such a hit that a sequel was developed. Released on February 11, the sequel stars a young boy named Mono, who with the help of Six, is trying to escape Little Nightmares 2’s horrific world. Six is AI-controlled this time out, and you’ll need to work with her to solve puzzles and evade terrible creatures.

At certain points in the game, Mono will also be able to wield a range of items picked up in the environment. There will be times when stealth remains the best option, and there will also be times when you will need to do a bit of thinking to save yourself and Six.

So, if you are interested in LN2, you should definitely give the first game a download, and why not? It's free.
