Game release: “Little Bug” (PC)

Buddy System and Fig Publishing, Inc.‘s puzzle-platformer Little Bug brings dreams and nightmares as well as memories and childhood together.

The imagination can run rather wild when children are involved. While this game might not be as scary and unsettling as Little Nightmares, it doesn’t mean that throwing a child, in this case 8-year old girl Nyah, into a spirit world that has enough things trying to grab her isn’t a bit unnerving, too. Only together with her spirit light that helps her to jump higher, destroy obstacles, and drive away evil spirits, is it possible for Nyah to find a way out and get back home to her little sister and estranged mother.

Platformers usually involve lots of collecting, and Little Bug is no different, as Nyah finds treasures on her adventure, just as she did in real life with a lunch box. But these aren’t used for buying any upgrades or weapons (as there aren’t any), but help her to find out more about herself or even unlock special challenges. While the gameplay doesn’t look particularly innovative, the neon art style and some neat dream/nightmare-like changes of the level architecture is quite interesting, especially since it doesn’t simply rely on darkness to scare players, but uses vivid images that could be right out of a strange painting or animated movie. In a way, it’s all a bit reminiscent of platformer Never Alone in the way how despite the otherworldly spirits, it all somehow feels connected to the real world.

The game is out now on PC with a 10% launch discount that will last until October 2nd, 3pm UTC.
