    It might be short, but Inheritance adds a new layer of drama to an already well conceived story, while giving the madness that you encountered in the original a fresh touch.

    No, the Inheritance DLC doesn’t stray far from the feeling the base game gives, but it is definitely it’s own, separate story with its own protagonist and endings. If you didn’t enjoy the main game, you won’t enjoy this. But if you are like me and found the way the game tells its story interesting and worth the time to play through, then this DLC is perfect for you.

    It may not reach the heights of the original game, but "Inheritance" is still a commendable return to this creepy house.

    Inheritance is a great piece of DLC for Layers of Fear. While it still does suffer from performance and the studio’s reliance on jump scares, this five-dollar expansion provides a satisfying hour-and-a-half to two-hour experience with the most interesting content that Layers of Fear has to offer.

    Good horror is so rare - that balance between atmosphere, sound, progression.... This game has it in spades. The main game nailed it, and thisGood horror is so rare - that balance between atmosphere, sound, progression.... This game has it in spades. The main game nailed it, and this expansion actually builds on it even more. I would say to any true horror fan - this is a must have. Expand

    Layers of Fear Inheritance
    Ending all the mystery
    Layers of Fear Inheritance fills in all of the mystery surrounding layers of fear and answers the questions of all speculation as to what happened to the daughter and her mother…
    As the name suggests, the daughter inherits the home layers of fear takes place in from her father after he dies, she returns to see what hes left her
    As you explore the home youll run into objects and areas that will trigger you… and no this isn’t a feminist simulator… these triggers take you back to traumatic events in your life and you view them or play through them as a child…
    Much like the main game there a few jump scares, ever changing rooms and puzzles, notes to give even more insight into the story, and every subtle choice you make in the game will effect the ending you receive
    While this dlc is great for people intrigued by the games story.. theres not much else here for anyone else…
    This DLC is only about 1 hour long your first time through…
    And theres nothing all too special about the game play or puzzles this time around.. you do a lot of find the missing piece and move on while the main game you had to actually stop and think every once in a while…
    The environment also isn’t really that creepy.. there is a neat in drawing section in the game but its only neat to look at.. actually exploring it is pretty bland.. same with the rest of the game…
    There are a few maybe 1 or 2 unsettling moments in the story.. but the actual environment you explore is just messy and foggy…
    you never really feel tense outside of those very few moments
    youre just going through sections that are hard to see in…
    IF you want some questions answered pick inheritance up,
    if you were a fan of the gameplay in layers of fear and didn’t care for the story or just a horror fan in general, theres no reason to pick this up as I never felt any real horror vibes
    I give Layers of Fear Inheritance a 7.0/10
