THE DARK PICTURES: LITTLE HOPE Is Inspired by Classic Horrors THE WITCH, HELLRAISER and THE OMEN
It certainly sounds like fans of classic horror movies should keep an eye on The Dark Pictures: Little Hope, as Supermassive Games' next project is reportedly inspired not only by historical events, but also the works of Richard Donner and Robert Eggers. As a reminder, this follow-up to Man of Medan launches this summer.
Earlier this week, Bandai Namco shared new details on Little Hope, and if you just can't wait to play it, Game Informer has revealed some very interesting bits of information about the bone-chilling production.
According to The Dark Pictures: Little Hope Director Pete Samuels, the British development team draws its inspiration from real-world events — including the Salem and Andover Witch Trials — and famous horror movies such as The Witch, The Blair Witch Project, Hellraiser, It Follows, The Omen, and Season of The Witch.
Speaking of well-known films, Samuels also confirmed that Will Poulter (The Maze Runner, Midsommar) will portray Little Hope's central character, Andrew, and his 17th-century New England doppelganger. It doesn't mean that the title is focused only on his fight for survival in the abandoned — and ghost-infested — town of Little Hope, as the game's cast of playable characters includes four college students and their professor.
With the next entry in The Dark Pictures series debuting relatively soon, we should learn a whole lot more about Supermassive's project in the near future. In the meantime, check out its latest trailer down below:
