Little Misfortune is a dark adventure starring a sweet little girl and other Eldritch horrors

All Misfortune Ramirez Hernandez wants is to be happy. With an abusive father and an alcoholic mother, her life isn’t all sunshine and rainbows – but perhaps a bit of glitter will solve her problems.

Little Misfortune is the newest game from Swedish studio Killmonday Games, developer of one of our favourite creepy point-and-click adventures, Fran Bow. It stars the aforementioned Misfortune, a sweet little girl, on her quest to find the gift of Eternal Happiness.

Check out the trailer below.

Directed by a mysterious voice to leave her home and enter the dark forest, Misfortune sets out on her quest and is almost instantly confronted by the dark horrors found in the deep. But again, maybe glitter will help?

The recently released demo – available on Steam and itch.io – is brilliant, and sets the scene for Misfortune’s refreshing innocence and obliviousness to her surroundings.

If you’ve played any classic point and click adventures, you’ll be familiar with the mechanics – as you travel throughout Misfortune’s house, you’ll discover a variety of tools and make game-changing choices.

Will you bring your pet rock on your journey? Or perhaps your unicorn? Every choice has consequences, the voice tells Misfortune – so it’s important to choose wisely.

The demo, which comprises a 15-minute glimpse into Misfortune’s new and terrifying world, is defined by choice, and it was enough to tickle my fancy.

I want to know more about the world of Little Misfortune now. I want to know the story of Benjamin the Fox. I want to know more about the Satanic world that Misfortune stumbles into. And that’s exactly what a good demo should do.

Little Misfortune will release in 2019. Stay tuned to @Killmondaygames and @misfortunegame for all the latest news.
