While other horror games are still trying to wrap their heads around it, Little Nightmares 2 understands modern horror. The Babadook, Midsommar, Get Out, Hereditary… these modern horror classics have eschewed jump scares and gore in favour of slowly building chills, unsettling atmospheres, and a constant sense of dread. Little Nightmares 2, much like its predecessor, weaves all of these feelings through its gameplay while others in the genre are still focusing on things that go bump in the night.
