Little Nightmares for Mac is a puzzle-platformer horror adventure game developed by Tarsier Studios and published by Bandai Namco Entertainment for Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Little Nightmares for Mac received generally positive reviews upon release with critics praising the atmosphere, graphics, sound, and storytelling, but criticism was aimed at the Little Nightmares for Mac’s checkpoint system, long load times and short length.
In Little Nightmares for Mac a nine-year-old hungry girl named Six is trapped in The Maw – a surreal resort catering to the whims of sick and powerful creatures. After waking up in the lower depths of the Maw, Six decides to escape the harsh confines, having regular moments of insatiable hunger. Whilst ascending, she soon becomes stalked by the long-armed Janitor of the Maw; who has been capturing children and sending them on an overhead hook conveyor belt. She eventually becomes trapped by the Janitor after being lured by food, though she manages to escape. After evading the Janitor by cutting off his arms via a door, Six follows the conveyor belt upward, to a large kitchen operated by the grotesque Twin Chefs. After another bout of hunger, Six eats a rat. The Chefs are preparing a large feast, and attempt to kill Six whenever she enters their line of sight. After managing to evade them, she manages to find a way out, but finds that the entire Maw is covered by a large ocean.
Six observes a boat ferrying large and obese suited Guests, who lumber to the Oriental-style dining area of the Maw, overseen by the Lady, the supposed leader of the Maw. After wading through the feast and the Guests’ themselves, Six has another bout of hunger. When one of the Nomes, the recurring inhabitants of the Maw, offers her a sausage, Six instead eats the Nome.
