Minor nitpick but does anyone else feel like releasing Oct 30 is a little too close to halloween? It gives you 2 days to beat it and then spooky season is over! October 16 or October 23rd would be better but whatever.

Besides that, Until Dawn kicks ass and Man of Medan is okay, I played both with a large group and it was a total blast in that environment both times. It’s something I hope we can do with this one if Covid isn’t still kicking around and deadly.

dunno, all their previous games you can beat in one sitting.
 
Damnit I'm a sucka for little cinematic horror gems like this one, Until Dawn.

This the only Dev team from UD that makes and fills my appetite in the horror genre. I adore any project they release.

This little town is creepy AF, can't wait !!

What time is it?
Man of Medan was kind of a disappointment after Until Dawn, but this one looks more interesting.

The best part of Man of Medan was the Little Hope trailer. Until Dawn was amazing, I hope it wasn't lightening in a bottle.

It has tentacles, autowin.
Namco has become quite a juggernaut, they keep scoring all these indie like titles of high quality.

Crap, I was just wondering when this was finally coming. So much for that summer release. LOVED Until Dawn, one of my favs this gen, Man of Medan was kind of "Meh". Hoping for more of a scary title since MoM really didn't hit any of the same tones of Until Dawn.

Wish there was Collectors Editions in the US for this one, I'd probably bite

I wonder why Sony is not investigated on Europe by false advertising on trailers. Lately they are publishing tweets and videos on their YouTube channel with PC footage as PS4 footage

Men of Medan was ok for the price and the obvious small budget. The thing that disappointed me the most about it was how all the supernatural was just bad gas and it wasn't real, that was just weak sauce. That said, I will definitely get Little Hope but this time I hope it delivers some actual horror and not end with "oh it was all just another gas lol".

Oh yeah, also the ending how the military "rescue" team was two soldier dudes with flashlights and nothing else :D :D :D that was just pathetic.

Little Hope is now out. Despite its defaults, it has a great story with one of the best endings in the history of video games. It's totally underrated by the critics in my opinion.

Buy this game !

+ : the story is great, especially when you finally understand everything
+ : multiple playthroughs are fine
+ : even better with friends

- : walking is too slow
- : sometimes lacks pace in the middle of the adventure

How long does a single play through take? 😊

I played through it last night. Really enjoyed it!

1) dem’ grafix......Game looks phenomenal on pc.
2) only 1 crash!!! (If you play these game’s....that’s an improvement!!!)
3) story was ok, I liked it way better than MoM.

Worth the 30 bucks IMO and I will play again.

Finished it today, much better than Man of Medan still not as good as Until Dawn but it got pretty close. It is practically just Silent Hill without the siren. Also had only 1 crash. Pretty decent dialogues, not many cringe moments, enjoyable story. Looking forward to the 3rd game.

I felt Little Hope was much better than Man of Medan. In MoM, once you knew the plot twist, it kind of guided your choices in subsequent playthroughs. But in LH, the plot twist doesn't really matter too much as far as affecting your choices when you play again. In fact, I have more interest in exploring different choices in LH. I've already played though it twice and I'm still interested in playing again, whereas MoM, I felt basically done with it after 2 plays.

Looks better than the last one. I tried the demo of Man of Medan and I couldn't make it past 15 minutes despite loving Until Dawn. The cast was just too damn cliche. Nerdy brother, jock, bimbo gf of jock, and angry boat captain? Meh.

Gentlemen, we can rebuild it. We have the capability to make the world's first enhanced store. Steam will be that store. Better than it was before.
Seems like the game will be on sale (in the US at least) for Black Friday - $19.99 at multiple retail locations. Best Buy and GameStop confirmed, will probably also get matched by Amazon.
