Little Nightmares Secrets Of The Maw DLC Announced

The nightmare continues

Tarsier Studio’s Little Nightmares, which was well received on release scoring a worthwhile 8/10 here on TSA, is to be blessed with a DLC expansion that adds three new chapters to the game.

Rather than follow the further adventures of Six, the raincoat wearing protagonist of the game, The Secrets of the Maw will tell the tale of The Runaway Kid, another prisoner who’s story will run in parallel to the main game.

The new LITTLE NIGHTMARES DLC introduces The Runaway Kid, another prisoner looking for a way out of the dark depths of The Maw, an eerie, twisted vessel filled with disturbing and dangerous enemies who are eager to devour their next victim. During his journey, The Runaway Kid will visit unseen areas of the Maw in three different chapters: The Depths, The Hideway, and a last secret location, which offers new challenges to overcome and an alternative perspective on Six’s adventures.

In the first chapter, The Depths, The Runaway Kid explores the foul and murky sewers as he tries to escape from an insidious threat that lurks underwater. In November, players will be taken to The Hideway, a machine-themed section where the Nomes reside. The third and final chapter will be releasing in January 2018, and will ultimately determine the fate of The Runaway Kid.

  1. I must go back and play the second half of the main game but i found it frustrating enough so far that i’ll probably skip the dlc.

    • My main gripe with the game was on the 1st chapter, when you had to jump on a cage & climb up a chain.

      As easy as it should have been, the camera view/perspective they used, somehow made it look like the cage lined up with a completely different part of the platform. I jumped and fell to my death about 20 times & had to run through 3 rooms & climb up a bunch of cages to get their again every time only to miss the bloody cage again and again and again!!!
      God it was annoying. Not sure whether they purposely tried to deceive you with the angle or not. If so, it was daft, as I almost quit & deleted the game.

      • The camera certainly doesn’t help at times but the overall trial and error nature of the game often means having to die several times before you can figure out what you have to do – and then die several more times trying to achieve that – combined with the odd checkpointing makes it more frustrating than it should have been.

      • I did mention the controls/camera are a little annoying at times in the review. You just have to take a little more care than other games – there’s a bit where you walk along planks in the ceiling which is… aha.. a nightmare.. to get right if you are not precise.

      • Yeah, it’s still a nice little game. It’s just that little bit i had a problem with the camera angle.
        Depending on the length of the DLC, I’ll consider buying it.

      • The caveats were mentioned in the review and i’ll certainly return to it at some point, just the frustration was outweighing the enjoyment for me so i moved on to other games in the meantime.

  2. Just looked on the store for the Secrets of the Maw DLC and it says “Save money on content for this game by purchasing the Season Pass”. Never knew there was a season pass. Can’t see one either. Does this mean they’ll be more DLC to come?

    • It’s 3 chapters, with the 2nd and 3rd coming in November and January. All for £7.99.

      Or you can buy the “complete edition” with the game and the DLC for 1p more than buying the game and DLC separately. So that’s a bargain ;)
