Get Nyah Home

Nyah is walking home from school when she's suddenly cast into an uncanny world where dangerous spirits linger restlessly in bottomless canyons, icy caves, and moonlit deserts. Play as Nyah and her spirit light in tandem as you immerse yourself in this foreboding, atmospheric landscape. Will Nyah use her new found light to find her way home or will she lose her way amongst the many dangers that roam in the moonlight?

Simple Controls, Complex Gameplay:
Nyah can walk on the ground and collect treasures while her light can fly in any direction - you control them both at the same time. Forming a telekinetic beam between them, you’ll create a powerful connection that can swing Nyah to new heights, destroy barriers, thwart spirits and light the way to secret locations. Your coordination with these two characters is key, as disembodied spirits can appear without warning and hurt Nyah or her light. You’ll learn their unique play style intuitively and quickly as fresh challenges emerge to test you in the wilderness.

Discover Dozens of Unique Items

Collect dozens of unique treasures in Nyah's lunchbox that reveal memories from Nyah’s past and rearrange them however you like. Decide which items to keep with you on your journey and which to offer to the mysterious spirit cat Roadkill, who can unlock secret challenge levels with special items.

We highly recommend using a gamepad.

If you are playing with a lower end graphics card (aka macbooks and such):
You may experience choppy gameplay, but not to worry - try lowering resolution and graphics quality. Also, we recommend enabling vSync. All of this can be done via the in-game options menu.

Hey i dowloaded it from my email because it came with the bundle but i cant connect it to here or play it. Anyone know what to do?

hey there! Someone else mentioned they had trouble launching through the itch launcher. If you can locate the file on your computer and double click the .exe or .app you should be good to go. Let me know if that works!

really wanna try this beautiful game :)

Thanks for letting me know! Did you get it working ok?


If you happen to want to play Little Bug under 64-bit Linux, I made a shell script to download and extract the Unity support files for it. Just run this in the same directory as the exacted game files (Little Bug_Data and Little Bug.x86):

curl -L https://git.io/fheGq | sh

It'll create a Little Bug.x86_64 executable.

Thank you! I'm super new to Linux, this is very helpful.

Ah, I played this when it was just a demo! That's so cool to see it grow up into a full game <3


Glad you could be here for the whole journey :)
