The Wolf Among Us – € 4.94
The Wolf Among Us can easily be considered one of the best episodic productions of Telltale Games.

Little Nightmares – 3.99 euros
Little Nightmares is a puzzle-platformer that relies on the innermost fears of childhood. The protagonist of this singular adventure, which seems to have escaped from Tim Burton’s mind, is a girl named Six, trapped on a huge boat inhabited by corrupt souls called Le Fauci, from which he must absolutely escape. In accompanying her on this journey, you will be encouraged to reconnect with the child within you and to unleash your imagination.
Like two of the most illustrious exponents of the genre, Limbo and Inside, the production of Tarsian Studios also aims to immerse a world as fascinating as it is desperate, which is the background to a hermetic and never explicit narrative canvas. Despite the inspiration, Little Nightmares is not a derivative product, and manages to shine with its own light thanks to intelligent playful solutions and to some moments that we do not hesitate to define memorable. Are you not convinced? Read the Little Nightmares review of our Francesco Fossetti.
