Tarsier Studios is an independent development studio in Malmö, Sweden. Tarsier developed the 2017 game Little Nightmares, along with its 2021 prequel, Little Nightmares II. As of August 28, 2020, Tarsier Studios employs about 70 people.


Tarsier Studios was founded in 2004 as Team Tarsier. Tarsier Studios changed its name in 2009 when the studio released its first two projects.

In 2010, Tarsier Studios signed an agreement to publish games with Sony Interactive Entertainment and Microsoft Windows, thus becoming their first studio.

In 2019, Embracer Group AB (formerly known as THQ Nordic AB) acquired the studio for $10.6 million. They will release internal projects with them, but Little Nightmares II will be released under copyright by Bandai Namco Entertainment.

Some days after the release of Little Nightmares II, Tarsier Studios no longer work under Bandai Namco. The series was handed over to Supermassive Games for Little Nightmares III.
