Sometimes there are so many indie games coming out that I lose track, and interest. However, one game that has got me a little excited is Hunger from Tarsier Studios.
Hunger is a simple premise “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.” but when you look at the trailer you’ll see why it’s so fascinating. The design, the world simply screams Alice in Wonderland, only darker and more scary. Check out those hands half way through. No thanks!
“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!”
The good news is that Tarsier Studios are the folks behind Little Big Planet and Tearaway Unfolded. And it’s coming only to PS4.
