Little Nightmares II is produced in partnership with Tarsier Studios. The previous installment was well-received by gamers, praising the game for its graphics, atmosphere, and visual storytelling.
In the sequel, the player follows the story of a young boy named Mono who is ”trapped in a world distorted by the humming transmission of distant Signal Tower. Mono, and a young girl by the name of Six, must find their way through this nightmare of a world and discover “the grim secrets” that lie underneath the shadows. Be careful, though. Mono and Six will not get through their journey without a few hair-raising encounters.
