About the Game

(MAY VARY PER LOCATION)
Little Nightmares II is a suspense-adventure game in which you play as Mono, a young boy trapped in a world that has been distorted by a mysterious transmission from a distant signal tower. With Six, the girl in a yellow raincoat, Mono sets out to discover the dark secrets of The Signal Tower and save Six from her terrible fate; but their journey will not be easy as Mono and Six will face an array of new threats from the terrible residents of this world. Will you dare face this collection of new, little nightmares?
Step 1: Playing Conditions
Read below the game basic characteristics. If it is something you see yourself playing, move on to Step 2: Graphics & Sound.
Little Nightmares 2 (LN2) is a spooky puzzle adventure game. The sound and graphics build an apprehensive atmosphere and GETTING SCARED is a possibility that’s always there.
You play as Mono and have an AI friend called Six. Together, you will solve puzzles, escape from morbid creatures, kill some of them, and for completionist gamers, there are hats, souls, and achievements to collect.
Puzzles’ difficulty varies from easy to hard, to beat the game you need to complete all 5 chapters of the story. To have the best gameplay experience, HEADPHONES ARE A MUST to fully immerse in that dark world.
Step 2: Graphics & Sound
Watch 5 to 10 minutes of any video below. If you like what you see and hear, move on to Step 3: Game Evaluation.
Step 3: Game Evaluation
Build your expectations about the game by learning what it offers and how was The Partisan Spy’s experience.
The game menu brings options for graphic settings, chapter selection and that’s basically it. You can’t change control configurations, and TOGGLING SKILLS IS A FUNCTION SOME PLAYERS WILL MISS.
On the other hand, SIMPLICITY can be something appreciated during gameplay. There is no HUD. During the entire game, it’s all about you, the environment, and the challenges it brings.
Not a single word is said on LN2. At least no words we would understand.
There is no explanation why run away or why things look as they do. What you see, what you hear and your imagination will fill in those gaps. The more you play, the DEEPER THE GAME WILL PULL YOU IN, the more apprehensive you will feel, and at the end, you may be asking yourself: how could I get so involved in a story with no words?
PVE games usually don’t get the same attention from the gaming community as PVP games.
Content generation is LIMITED to the completion of the game, which results in a short awareness life span. Beyond that fact, LN2 IS A REALLY SHORT GAME with little content to be explored.
Paid DLCs may be released but with a low perspective of growing LN2’s awareness.
GAMEPLAY MOOD TRACKER
The tracker shows how my mood positively grows as the game progress and the story unfolds. The more involved I get with the story, the more excited I get with the game. When my mood reaches CAN’T STOP PLAYING IT the story ends. Frustration takes place.
LN2 IS TOO SHORT to feel any kind of grind feeling.
Every story chapter is totally different from each other and puzzles use different elements. To complete 100% of the game, you may need to play some chapters again.
LOVED THE MOST
The chasing parts are electrifying and the zoom-in moments are a nice little treat.
DISLIKED THE MOST
The game is extremely short.
How much one hour of gameplay is worth?
I think 99% of us would say it depends on each one’s likings of a game. But how to ratio likings vs hours vs money?! And how to add free-to-play games to that?
Little Nightmares II is not free-to-play, its price is US$29.99 and can be 100% completed in approximately 10 hours. THE GAME DELIVERS EVERYTHING YOU CAN EXPECT. It draws you into the story in a way few games are able to. And every game element fits perfectly to each other.
But… in my opinion, for the price it asks, it is SHORT.
How do I know? Here’s my secret.
After playing a perfect game, I usually end with one of two feelings: I want to play this game again, or does it really ends here… wtf?
You can guess what did I say after COMPLETING LITTLE NIGHTMARE II IN 7 HOURS.
Choices & Advice
DON’T BUY IT
IF YOU DON’T LIKE SCARY AND THRILLER KIND OF GAMES.
WAIT TO BUY
IF YOU DON’T BELIEVE THAT 7 TO 10 HOURS OF GAMEPLAY IS WORTH US$30.00.
((Little Nightmare is much cheaper and offers a similar experience.)
IF US$3.00-4.00 PER GAMEPLAY HOUR IS AT YOUR PRICE POINT OR YOU ARE A FAN OF THE FRANCHISE.
THE GAME CAN BE FULLY COMPLETED IN 7 TO 10 HOURS.
