Sitting at a 97% positive user score on Steam Early Access, making it “one of the most acclaimed horror games in years,” Layers of Fear from Bloober Team (Brawl) is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on February 16 in North America and Europe, publisher Aspyr Media announced today.
Playing as an insane painter trying to finish his magnum opus, Layers of Fear is a psychological horror game inspired by the masterpiece paintings from the past centuries. During the game, you’ll walk through a constantly shifting house, with each turn of the camera potentially changing the look of your surroundings.
Bloober’s Rafal Basaj adds:
In Layers of Fear, the more you explore and delve into the game’s world, the more gratifying the story gets. We have left tons of personal items, notes, photos, and wall scribbles that expand the plot and immerse you in the story, while also leaving much to the player’s imagination. Chapter after chapter you will ask yourself what has really transpired in the life of the main character.
Layers of Fear is a scary and psychedelic wild ride that bends our perception of the world; it makes you think about the gravity of tragedy and how it could define our lives. Horror has always been our passion and forte, and we hope that you will enjoy this trip through madness as much as we have enjoyed putting it together for you.
Layers of Fear will cost $19.99 at launch.
