Little Nightmares is one of the most promising releases of 2017, and Titan Comics is bringing this unique and terrifying world to fans in a brand new series. Now fans can get a first glimpse at what Titan is doing with the celebrated visual style with a special preview of the first issue.
The book follows a mysterious character named six, identified by her trademark yellow trenchcoat. In the original demo fans saw the character on the run from a murderous (and quite grotesque" chef, but the comic will go far beyond just the kitchen, allowing fans to delve deeper into this world and explore just who the Maw are and the community of survivors that does their best to find a way out.
Hopefully, this tease also means fans will be getting more information on Six, how she was brought into this world, and what exactly this Maw society is. It seems there are others like her, but for some reason, they don't necessarily want her around.
As for the game, it's developed by Tarsier Studios, and will be released from Bandai Namco Entertainment on April 28, 2017, for PS4, Xbox One, and Windows. The book is written by Alex Paknadel and Dan Watters, and is beautifully illustrated by Aaron Alexovich, who's visuals perfectly fit this universe. You can view an exclusive preview of the interior art for Little Nightmares #1 in the gallery, and the official description can be found below.
The book will also launch with several variants, and those can be found in the gallery as well.
