The world is in need of more creepy platformers. After the success of a game like LIMBO it was kind of surprising more developers didn’t jump at the idea of a puzzle-platformer with a haunting atmosphere. Luckily, the good folks at Tarsier Studios is working on Hunger, a game that just may satisfy that hole. Hit the jump to watch the trailer and see some screenshots!
As you can see, the game itself looks super creepy and has a sort of Tim Burton claymation feel to it. According to Tarsier Studios’ website, Hunger has been in the works for more than a year since it received funding last summer. The website also goes on to describe the game as such:
At its heart, Hunger is a simple idea. A young girl is trapped in a labyrinth full of monsters and wants to escape. It will be your job to help her do this. It’s a genre we’re calling ‘suspense-adventure’, on account of the fact that there will be plenty of both. Coupled with an unnerving ‘Dollhouse Perspective’, tactile controls, and characters with soft, dark centres, Hunger will take your hand and let it go at the worst possible moment!
You play as a girl named Six and it’s your job to navigate her out of this apparently horrific underwater settlement called “The Maw”. If the teaser trailer is any indication of how the game will be, I’m personally looking forward to playing this haunting little game.
