The Dark Pictures Anthology – Little Hope
If you’ve played Supermassive Games’ Playstation exclusive, Until Dawn, then you’ll know what to expect from Little Hope, the latest title in the Dark Pictures Anthology. If you haven’t, Little Hope is a cinematic horror story, with diverging paths and scenarios available based on your choices. You control five different characters at different times as the story progresses, with lots of quick-time events and mini-games to overcome.
The story begins as a group of four students, and their intense professor, get stuck just outside the town of Little Hope following a bus crash. Little Hope is of course, a ghost town, meaning that of course Little Hope has a few jump scares and unsettling moments, but rather than an in-your-face horror, it’s a slow burn thriller rather than a slasher. Litle Hope relies on the rising tension to keep you hooked, so some horror fans may find this a little too tame for their liking.
Figuring out the mystery whilst trying to keep everyone alive is the key to Little Hope, and whilst it won’t appeal to all gamers, it’s well worth experiencing.
