That Hunger game: LittleBigPlanet Vita dev's latest sure looks impressive

Upcoming horror adventure evokes the best of Jean-Pierre Jeunet.

Last year LittleBigPlanet Vita and Rag Doll Kung Fu: Fists of Plastic developer Tarsier Studios unveiled a creepy horror adventure called Hunger and now it's finally revealed a gameplay trailer for the stylish subterranean enterprise.

I previously described its concept art as 'Botanicula by way of Delicatessen,' but seeing the game in motion brings to mind a bit of Czech filmmaker Jan Švankmajer.

Hunger will mix exploration, stealth, platforming and puzzle solving as you assume the role of a little girl named Six who has been abducted by monsters and enslaved in an eerie underwater resort called The Maw.

"Borrowing the tense atmospherics of survival horror and the playful exploration of adventure games, Hunger employs an unusual 'Dollhouse Perspective' to further blur the line between real and make-believe," the developer explained on its blog.

Tarsier previously said Hunger was in development for PS4, but now it's expanded that description to "console and PC."

The Swedish developer is now roughly 40 people strong while it's received €200K (about £146K) in funding from the Nordic Game Program and Creative Europe.
