The new DLC is available as part of the complete edition of Little Nightmares or you can buy it separately for $3.99. For gamers curious about the new expansion or who need help with the puzzles, there’s a walkthrough available.

YouTuber Shirrako has a 45 minute video up covering the small expansion for Little Nightmares from start to finish that you can check out below.

The latest episode in Little Nightmares starts with a boy inside the sack. He manages to tear himself out and fall down into the depths below.

For those of you who don’t remember, the boy was captured in the last episode and thrown into a cage. The long armed man had taken the boy and put him in the sack so that he could be diced up into fresh mince meat by the butcher brothers.

With the boy having successfully escaped from his most imminent doom, he’s greeted by the gnomes, who examine him and then scurry away.

Follow the gnomes into the next room, where you’ll find one of them lounging about by a set of dresses in the corner of the room. Interact with the gnome and he will stand around in the room. Interact with the gnome again and he will attempt to get through the door but can’t. Pick him up.

Hold ‘A’ on the Xbox controller (or ‘X’ on the DualShock 4) to throw the Gnome at the door handle to open the door, which will lead you into the next room.


In the next room, throw the gnome up on the box, and then pick him up. Hop down and move over to the lever hanging from the ceiling. Get directly underneath it and throw the gnome up to pull the lever and open the door to the next room.

There’s a chest in the corner you’ll need to move out of the way so you can crawl through the cubby hole into the next area.

There’s another gnome in a cage on the work bench. Throw the first gnome up to the bench and he will stand by the chest on the desk.

Go over to the drawer to the far right of the room and open it; a gnome is inside. Throw him up onto the desk and the two will push the chest off the desk and onto the floor so you can get up top and free the third gnome in the cage.

Pick up each of the gnomes and bring them to the door to get all three of them to help you push the door open into the next segment.

In the next area you’ll need to climb the stool, pull the lever, grab a piece of coal, carry it into the next room and place it on the ramp. Climb up on the stool and throw press the lever to open the furnace.

Help the little gnome throw coal into the furnace and it will lower the ladder on the left side of the room and open the door on the far right side of the room. Inside you’ll find another gnome trapped inside a tipped over coal cart. Free him.

There’s a ladder on the side of the wall. Climb up the ladder and head into the next room. There’s another lever you’ll need to flip so you can get a light. Proceed into the next room and use the light to navigate around uncle long-arms. Proceed into the next room and go north toward the staircase. Head up the steps and jump across the coal carts to get into the next room.


Go over to the locker on the far right side of the room and pull the locker door open. There’s a stool in side. Drag it out.

Inside the room there are three file cabinets. Pull out the first two drawers and then pull out the middle drawer of the middle file cabinet to climb up top and get the light that’s turned.

Throw the light at the switch on the far left side of the wall.


Sneak through the next room to avoid uncle long-arms.

Bring the working light all the back to the room with the two slots for the light fuses. Plug both working light fuses into the machine and take the elevator up to the next floor.

There’s a small hole in the upper right hand corner of the room. You can go through the hole to get to the other side.

In the next room there’s a tipped over file cabinet, banging. Inside is a little gnome. Free him.

Grab the other gnome inside the room and push the rolling tray to the far right of the two desks; climb up across the file cabinet and the organizing drawers to get to the other side where the gnome is located on the desk.

Take the three gnomes over to the left side of the room; push the crate close to the door. Throw all three gnomes onto the switch and push the crate under the door.

Take the three gnomes into the room with the dumbwaiter and bring them downstairs into the room with the charcoal. Throw one of the gnomes onto the switch on the left side of the room to open the door.

Take all four gnomes back into the furnace room.


Climb up the ladder on the left side of the furnace room.

There’s a second ladder. Climb it.

Continue up into the next room and jump on the broken floorboards until you break through.

Turn on the power by flipping the lever in the room with the crank and then push the switch on the table with the saw to distract long-arms.

Head back into the other room and crank the wench to open the door and jump down below.

Once down below, climb up the boxes in the northwest corner of the room and move through the little hole. Hop down into the coal pit and pick up the gnome. Throw the gnome up top and use the gnome to flip the lever and use the momentum from the conveyor belt to swing across to the other side. Turn on the conveyor belt on the other side and then hop down into the coal pit and pick up the other gnome.

Take both gnomes back into the other room and throw one of them up to flip the switch.

In the next room, use one of the gnomes to pull down the ladder by throwing it up to reach the ladder.
