Killmonday Games released its newest game, Little Misfortune, on September 18, 2019. This is the same game development company that brought us Fran Bow. However, this game is NOT a sequel to the critically acclaimed Fran Bow.
Little Misfortune is a story-driven exploration game that follows our little lady, Misfortune. A new friend, Mr. Voice, leads Misfortune on an adventure to find Eternal Happiness for herself and her mother.
Along the way, Misfortune runs into Benjamin the fox, who she’s been watching from her bedroom window. The 8-year-old gets to visit the zoo, ride the bus by herself, and visit a theme park that she’s always wanted to go to.
During Misfortune’s adventure, you will be given choices that can affect what happens to her along the way. Even with all the choices, the outcome will remain the same. You simply cannot stop what happens to our little lady in the end.
The game advertises itself as horror, and while it does have some aspects of the genre, it’s mostly just spooky. The game is adorable and fun if you love point and click adventures. You will come out of it wishing you could sprinkle glitter on everything to make the world happier, just like Misfortune.
The game is rated M for the girl’s use of profanity, spooky cut scenes, drug use, and adult situations.
All in all, Little Misfortune is a game that you can play again and again in order to see every cut scene and every possibility. If you’re achievement-driven, there are a total of 35 Steam achievements to collect. However, it will take multiple playthroughs to get them all.
The game is available now on Steam for $19.99 for the PC. Check out the trailer below to see if you’re interested.
