Tarsier Studios, the studio behind LittleBigPlanet on Vita and Tearaway Unfolded, announced a horror title not too long ago. It looks a little like Sackboy having a nightmare, and not too much is yet known. Here’s what we do know.

Hunger follows the tale of a young girl trying to escape a place called The Maw, deep under the ocean. According to the trailer, someone, or something, isn’t happy about this, and will be reaching menacingly in the direction of players on their journey to the surface. I can only assume they want to play a disproportioned game of rock-paper-scissors… right?

The studio has said that "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!"

What I’m seeing is a horror LittleBigPlanet, and based on the user-created horror levels I played while I still had LBP, this isn’t a bad thing. All we need now is more information, because I’m hungry for more.
