Little Hope, the Follow-Up to Man of Medan, Has Its First Trailer

The next installment of The Dark Pictures looks bewitching.

The next horror game from Until Dawn developer Supermassive Games is set for this summer. Little Hope is the second installment in The Dark Pictures Anthology, and it already looks pretty scary.

Set in the town of Little Hope, the narrative looks to jump around in time much like the first entry in The Dark Pictures, last year's Man of Medan. Little Hope was a hotbed for witch trials, much like real-life Salem, and anyone who's seen a few horror movies knows where this is going: things go awry, some malice seems to manifest.

In modern times, a group decides to explore Little Hope, for reasons that escape me. According to the Dark Pictures Twitter account the group ends up stranded in the abandoned town in the dead of night. What's the worst that could happen?

The Dark Pictures Anthology is Supermassive's follow-up to Until Dawn, a horror-infused narrative adventure game seemingly tailor-made for fans of slasher flicks. Each entry of The Dark Pictures is its own game, with a new cast, story, and endings, held together by a singular narrator. It's reminiscent of horror anthologies like Creep Show, and Man of Medan was a fitting follow-up to Until Dawn, especially in the ways it leaned into the multiplayer experience.

Little Hope is currently set for a summer 2020 launch on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Pop that popcorn, and maybe leave some lights on. If it's anything like the last few Supermassive games, Little Hope will probably make me jump a few times.
