So, before we embark on this grotesque journey to The Maw, let's go over a few important tips that will surely aid you during your walkthrough.
Tips for Surviving in Little Nightmares
- Nomes are the little guys with the pointed caps you've probably seen in the Little Nightmares teaser and launch trailers. Hug them when you find them. They'll run away at first but there's no need to chase them since you'll find them hanging out in one spot eventually.
- The Statues you'll see periodically are collectibles. When you see them, break them!
- Your lighter is your best asset. It never runs out of fuel and it doesn't alert enemies of your presence. The game will also save your progress whenever you use it to light candles and lanterns.
- Running and jumping makes platforming across wide gaps easier. This also applies to moving faster.
- Grab items and ledges using the right trigger button on your controller. Use this whenever you're jumping from one platform to another because it can save you from a careless death.
- Hunger will strike and cause slowly but surely debilitate Six if it isn't resolved. If you follow our walkthrough succesfully, you'll find food before it the hunger can get that bad.

You'll have to have a good eye, sharp intuition, and a good strategy to beat this game and we're here to help you with that.
