Hunger: A New Game by Tarsier Studios

     Tarsier Studios, developers of Little Big Planet Vita and the wonderful game Tearaway, have released a trailer for their new game Hunger.  As with their past games they've got a lot of atmosphere and highly stylized animation.

     Hunger is the story of a small girl named Six trying to escape a strange and dark place called The Maw.  It has a very claymation-esque look and reminds me a lot of the game Puppeteer.  Tarsier's official site has this listed as a small description:
     "At its heart, Hunger is a simple idea. A young girl is trapped in a labyrinth full of monsters and wants to escape. It will be your job to help her do this. It’s a genre we’re calling ‘suspense-adventure’, on account of the fact that there will be plenty of both. Coupled with an unnerving ‘Dollhouse Perspective’, tactile controls, and characters with soft, dark centres, Hunger will take your hand and let it go at the worst possible moment!" 
     It's good to see small studios creating artful things like this.  Hunger is different and interesting, getting away from the typical game blockbusters we so often see, and it make me hopeful for the diverse types of games we may look forward to.

     No release information or platforms have been announced.
