Layers of Fear - Steam Early Access Trailer
Feb 14, 2016The true masterpiece is the endless struggle to create art. Jump scares and predictable tricks in horror games won't work anymore. The story of the artist is intriguing while still making you feel tense and uneasy about what you see. Layers of Fear made story, gameplay, and atmosphere work together in harmony.
Feb 24, 2016Layers of Fear is probably the scariest game of all time. A nightmarish journey through the mind of a deranged talented painter. Riveting atmosphere, fitting music and otherworldly scenes are going to haunt your thoughts for several days after the completion of your walkthrough. Magnificent.
Feb 14, 2016On the surface, this is a simplistic horror game with a claustrophobic atmosphere and plenty of creepy moments. The straightforward puzzles and unusual visuals give it wide appeal. Beneath that there are secrets to uncover and the subliminal pleasure of playing as the monster. For those that want to probe deeper there are angles of art and psychology to ponder. Stacked up like the rickety tiers of a gothic building, Layers of Fear proves aptly named.

Wow,me e pasado hace poco este juego y la verdad es que me a sorprendido y mucho. Este es un juego de miedo perothis critic is in spanish
Wow,me e pasado hace poco este juego y la verdad es que me a sorprendido y mucho.
Este es un juego de miedo pero algo peculiar,usa mucho la repeticion y bebe mucho de P.T por no decir que es casi igual pero me gusta y mucho,el mirar hacia algun lado y al darse la vuelta ves que todo cambia es flipante de narices,de quedarse aplaudiendo en algunas ocasiones de lo tremendo que es
En cuanto al terror te digo que es bueno,en algunas ocasiones recurre al susto facil(cosa que no me gusta) pero cuando estas con los cascos a tope y la habitacion a oscuras es facilisimo sumergirte en el juego y sentir de verdad miedo.
Como no la historia tambien es buena,nose si por cosa propia(ya que me encantan las historias contadas con pequeños guiños,sutilezas y notas osea que no te cuenta la historia de sopeton)
pero la verdad que es bastante buena y el final tambien.
Simplemente increibles,flipantes en algunos casos,para dejar la baba colgando
El rendimiento en general es bueno pero aveces da una caida de framerate que no deberia de ocurrir,alomejor si tienes un pc mas modesto no podras jugar este juego a 60 fps constantes
En resumen es un juego corto (6 h max) pero intenso que no te va a dejar indiferente muy recomendado… Expand
Dec 29, 2017I really like when a game focuses on one core idea and properly execute it.
Aside the fact that we can discuss the gaminess of Layers ofI really like when a game focuses on one core idea and properly execute it.
Aside the fact that we can discuss the gaminess of Layers of Fear, the main experience could be "wandering inside the twisted mind and horrible memories of a painter trying to achieve a masterpiece". And the great visual and mechanical idea is to mess with the mind of the player by changing the layout of the house behind his back.
Once you enter the workshop room with the blank canvas, anything goes. Every room, every object, every note is a piece of a narrative puzzle for you to complete and interpret - and at the same time, your progression seems to influence your final painting.
After completing the game, many questions remains, like who is the character we play ? By leaving these question and many other open to interpretation, the game continues to haunt us in a terrifying but satisfying way.… Expand
Jun 3, 2018This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. It is very interesting the fact that everything is a madness formed by himself, or at least, is what I interpret. It contains a hidden plot in a kind of bubble that with each painting in the picture is getting bigger, and that eventually ends up exploding with several endings (depending on whether you collect the collectibles, whether or not you happen in history ...).… Expand

3/5 • LAYERS OF FEAR is a claustrophobic little chiller. It relies a little too much on jump scares, but it does also succeed in creating a fairly compelling air of creepiness and dread. The story lacks originality but the structure of the game is unusual and the incorporated puzzles are simple and yet inventive. The graphics are excellent and the limited environments are used to good effect, although it’s a shame that you remain confined to the house throughout the game – I would have liked a little variety to the setting. Overall it’s enjoyable without being remarkable, but at just 4 hours long (unless you replay to explore different options, which is possible to some extent) I think it best bought in a sale. Good, but not great.… Expand
