little nightmares 2

Developer Tarsier Studios Publisher Bandai Namco Format PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, Xbox Series Origin Sweden Release February 11 Child’s play isn’t just for fun. Sometimes it can be a survival strategy, a response to environments that frighten because they simply aren’t built for the body you inhabit. Thus the creeping heart of Tarsier’s Little Nightmares: a series that casts you as a lost child in a world designed not just for grown-ups, but grown-ups as a child might see them – huge and distorted by perspective, the grotesque masters of spaces that dwarf and entrap you. To move through those spaces you must play around with them, always at the risk of being caught and punished. “A door is such a mundane object for adults, but for kids – almost by necessity, they have…

When we call up Hosni Auji, he’s just putting the finishing touches to a game that simulates a six-hour economy-class flight in real time. So we’re caught off guard when we ask how his debut got started, and he reveals he is – or was – an anxious flyer. “Generally, a week before I had to fly, I’d always read anything I could find online to calm myself down and reassure myself that flying is fine.” In that process, and from talking to people about their airborne experiences, he ended up with what he initially thought was “a useless bag of factoids,” albeit one that prompted a keen interest in civil aviation. As such, when Auji was tasked with developing a thesis project for a Masters programme at the NYU Game…

We’ll be candid, because somebody has to be: our next-generation transition has not exactly been going swimmingly. In all fairness, we imagine much of the rest of the industry, from the CEOs to the developers to the marketing teams and beyond, might say the same thing. The arrival of COVID-19 has thrown even the best-laid plans into disarray, and everyone has scrambled to readjust. But never have we experienced such a dearth of information when it comes to the new consoles from Sony and Microsoft. Normally, we’d have had at least a few opportunities – E3, absent this year, being the big one – to speak with the top execs on both sides by now, to quiz them on the finer details of the machines and the strategies around them. We’d…

“The big game showcases which have only been viewable this year virtually have meant I look forward to them like I do live-event, appointment-to-view TV.”“We’re supposed to paint this picture of nirvana; however, I just don’t think it’s nirvana. Nirvana is making great hits, and people will find them.”“After more than 30 years, I’ve decided to stop working on videogames and fully focus on my second passion: wildlife!”“Real change will take time. But I am determined to do everything in my power to ensure everyone at Ubisoft feels welcome, respected, and safe.” ARCADE WATCH Keeping an eye on the coin-op gaming scene Cabinet Astro City Mini Manufacturer Sega Alright, so it’s not exactly coin-op: you’d be hard-pressed to cram a quarter into this dinky thing. Nevertheless, the spirit of the arcade is very much present…
