Layers of Fear is a psychological horror game made by Bloober Team and published by Aspyr Media.

Overview Edit

Layers of Fear is a psychedelic horror that will keep you on-edge for the remainder of the game. Delve deep into the mind of an insane painter, and discover the secret of his madness as you walk through a constantly shifting house filled with meticulously constructed rooms.

Heavily inspired by the masterpiece paintings from the past centuries and the architecture and décor from the 19th century, Layers of Fear is a truly unique experience where each move of the camera can change your surroundings.

Layer by layer uncover the visions, fears and horrors that entwine the Artist and finish the masterpiece he has strived so very long to create.

Layers of Fear saw its full-release in the "Masterpiece Patch" on February 16, 2016.

Gameplay Edit

The game features the Artist exploring the warped and twisted version of his house room after room despite always returning to The Studio, collecting The Rat Scrawlings and delving into The Locked Cabinet as you go.

The Paintings Edit

The paintings with which the artist surrounds himself are all his real works. Many of the pictures are from known artists like Francisco Goya (»Saturn Devouring His Son«) or Rembrandt (»The Rape of Ganymede«). Some of the pictures are even cuttings of bigger paintings, like the picture of the dog puppy in the children's room which belongs, actually, to a portrait of a man.
