Tarsier Studios is an independent development studio who originally worked with SIE Worldwide Studios on first party projects. They are based in Malmö, Sweden. Founded in 2004 as Team Tarsier, the team eventually changed their name to Tarsier Studios when they released their first two projects involving SCE properties in 2009. In 2010, they signed a publishing deal with Sony Interactive Entertainment on a new, unannounced project, gaining Sony's lucrative first party support.[1] The studio consists of approximately 40 employees. On 19 May 2014 Tarsier Studios announced they were working on a new IP titled Hunger for the PlayStation 4, but later re-announced as Little Nightmares which is set to be released on Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms and will be published by Bandai Namco Entertainment.[2]
