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


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.

Heavily inspired by classic paintings from centuries past and the architecture and décor of the Victorian Era, 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 Painter 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.


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

Every year around Halloween, an event unlocks in the basement.

The Paintings[]

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 Abduction of Ganymede«). Some of the pictures are even cuttings of bigger paintings, like the picture of the dog in the daughter's room which belongs, actually, to a portrait of a man. For more Info go to the Paintings.
