The upcoming grim adventure game from Tarsier Studios joins forces with INSIDE, the Best Independent Game of 2016, to form the exclusive pack on GOG.com.
Warsaw, Poland – April 18, 2017 – GOG.com (https://www.gog.com), the digital distribution platform with curated selection of DRM-free games, together with BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment and Tarsier Studios are happy to announce a special deal for Little Nightmares – buying the game during the pre-order period and two weeks after its release, you will also get INSIDE from Playdead.
Little Nightmares, created by Swedish game developer Tarsier Studios, presents a dark yet whimsical tale that will have players confront their childhood fears as they help Six – a girl dressed in a yellow raincoat, escape the jaws of The Maw – a vast, mysterious vessel inhabited by corrupted souls looking for their next meal.
INSIDE is the award winning 2D puzzle platformer created by Playdead, independent game developer and publisher based in Copenhagen, Denmark. It’s a story about a haunted boy, who finds himself drawn into the center of a dark project. The game won plenty of industry awards including The Games Awards 2016 for Best Independent Game, and four BAFTA Awards for Original Property, Game Design, Artistic Achievement and Narrative.
The joint venture between Little Nightmares and INSIDE feels like the perfect match. Both indie games feature exceptional art style and game design, that takes gamers on dark and grim adventures in unreal worlds. Aside of visuals, Tarsier and Playdead decided to put weight on narrative aspects of their games, telling compelling stories that give the chills and make it hard to tear away from playing. Finally, both titles feature child protagonists, whom are set on mysterious and dangerous ventures, and must confront tricky puzzles and perilous enemies.
“INSIDE is a perfect example of the great things that can happen if you follow your passions and trust your instincts. We are proud to bask in their shadow!” said Dave Mervik, Senior Narrative Designer at Tarsier Studios, praising Playdead’s award winning game.
The exclusive offer on Little Nightmares + INSIDE is now available at GOG.com for 19.99 USD / 15.99 GBP / 19.99 EUR / 26.99 AUD. Little Nightmares is set to release later this month on 28th of April, but if you pre-order the pack you’ll receive INSIDE right away. The special offer will be available exclusively on GOG.com, during Little Nightmares pre-order period and two weeks after its release, till May 12.
