The final portion of the Little Nightmares DLC recently came out and I highly recommend gamers give it a try. Though the games original name was Hunger, I think that Little Nightmares fits with the atmosphere and the gameplay.
When you start the original campaign, you play as a small character in a yellow raincoat. Most people assume and see her as a girl, Six. As Six you meet all the bigger characters that will become obstacles and a challenge besides the little puzzles you solve on your way. The first part of the original campaign was interesting and something that kept players wondering what was going to happen next. Though the controls were a little touchy, the overall gameplay was entertaining and something to work on as you solved puzzles and ran through the large environment.

In the DLC, the Depths, you play as “The Runaway Kid.” You start out in the nursery, where you have already played in as Six, but then you follow a Mysterious Girl through some of the environment and you end up in the ‘Depths’ with the character known as the Granny. This section of the game was unnerving. Being in water through a chase always seems to be something that people dread, but this section of the game was entertaining.

In the next portion of the DLC, “The Hide Away,”, players continue to run through the Maw as the ‘Runaway Kid,’ where a player uses the help of the gnomes to get new points in the level. This part of the game wasn’t revealing any hints or anything similar to figure out what was going on. I think this level was challenging and it was good way to get to play as ‘The Runaway Kid’ without being in water. Also, when playing as the Runaway Kid, the developers made it so you could see where Six was at some points in the game. This made the level it  really fun.

In the last part in the DLC, ‘The Residence.’ you have to play in a different kind of environment. It was really hard at first to figure out what you were supposed to be doing. You take the Lady Dolls and you put them in a room where they fit into tiles on the floor. It was kind of hard to figure out how to get the dolls though. I really liked this part of the game though, as it gave away some hints and had a creepy and interesting feel to it. You also get to see the Lady’s face, which was not exactly what I was expecting, but it definitely played into the theme of Little Nightmares.

Then, at the very end of the game, The Lady catches you and you are turned into a gnome. Sadly, it is never explained why, but it lets your mind wander and gives many theories an exiting twist. As a gnome you walk into a room and stand in front of a sausage, which suggest that you are the gnome that Six eats in the campaign.
I sort of saw this coming. I had a little bit of a feeling that the gnomes were the young children and that would end up being eaten. I really enjoyed the game all together and loved how it fit into one world that you had to wrap your brain around.
