LittleBigPlanet Vita co-developer Tarsier Studios is working on a new intellectual property and game called "Hunger," which the Swedish studio describes as a 3D action-adventure with elements of stealth and exploration. Tarsier announced the news at the Nordic Game Conference today, where it was awarded 500,000 Danish Kroner (around $91,850 dollars) in supportive funding from the Nordic Game Program.
There's no word on platforms, but Tarsier did sign a first-party deal with Sony back in 2010 on an unannounced project. Also, today's press release notes the studio is "working closely with Sony Computer Entertainment," although that's not specified as relating to Hunger.
Whatever the platforms, Tarsier's concept art and synopsis for its new IP has our interest piqued. Hunger centers on a young girl called Six who's kidnapped and forced to work in The Maw - no, not the purple alien, but a "surreal underwater resort catering to the whims of the powerful elite." We wonder if there's an element of the classic British TV series The Prisoner in there, since Hunger also has a Six trying to escape from a super-weird retreat.
Anyway, as soon as we get more information, information, information. we'll let you know.
