Description

You take another drink as the canvas looms in front of you. A light flickers dimly in the corner. You’ve created countless pieces of art, but never anything like…this. Why haven’t you done this before? It seems so obvious in retrospect. Your friends, critics, business partners—soon, they’ll all see. But something’s still missing…

You look up, startled. That melody… Was that a piano? It sounded just like her… But, no—that would be impossible. She’s gone. They’re all gone.
Have to focus. How long has it taken to get to this point? Too long, but it doesn’t matter. There will be no more distractions. It’s almost finished. You can feel it. Your creation. Your Magnum Opus.

Dare you help paint a true Masterpiece of Fear? Layers of Fear is a first-person psychedelic horror game with a heavy focus on story and exploration. Delve deep into the mind of an insane painter and discover the secret of his madness, as you walk through a vast and constantly changing Victorian-era mansion. Uncover the visions, fears and horrors that entwine the painter and finish the masterpiece he has strived so long to create.

Game Features:
• Psychedelic horror – A sense of insanity means each turn of the camera may completely change the look of your surroundings.
• Victorian setting – Explore a game world inspired by masterpiece paintings, architecture and décor from the 19th century.
• Original and classic art – Numerous pieces of original art and music flesh out the story and environment.
• Story-focused exploration – Only through exploring the environment can you uncover the details of the painter’s dark and tragic past.

Very good game, i was streaming it on Discord to my friends and we all had fun. It has some nice jumpscares, the atmosphere is absolutely insane, sounds are terrifying (in a positive way). You should absolutely give it a shot especially for this price.
  • Price
  • Scary
  • Well optimized with nice graphics
  • Haven`t found one yet
Very scary, Very cheap! I think it was super scary, I like the spookyness. It was way cheaper then on steam and i like that cause i need to save money. Because it's my birthday soon, very soon, 27 days actually. And for my birthday i'm getting a switch, very nice.
  • Very cheap, Very Scary
  • Too scary even

Great horror game. It has an amazing atmosphere that sometimes makes you really uneasy. Jumpscares are great as well. But the best thing about this game is storytelling and multiple endings that you can get based on how you play. All in all a great horror experience.
  • Great visuals and details.
  • Story.
  • Soundtrack.
  • Multiple endings.
  • Atmosphere.
  • Short game.
I was unsure about this game at first. I downloaded it and gave it a try. After about two hours of gameplay, I'm ready to give a solid review. This game touches emotions in a way I haven't seen a horror game do. The game can be best defined as straight-up trippy. The game is very unsettling and there are many disturbing scenes throughout. Map design is beautiful. The mechanics of the game are amazing, and never seen before. Definitely a good purchase for horror fans.
  • Emotional storyline.
  • Amazing mechanics.
  • Good graphics.
  • Repetative gameplay.
  • Boring at times.
bof, pas si effrayant que ça, l'histoire n'est pas très attractif difficile d'avoir la bonne fin même si on "tryhard" par contre le jeu est beau et le DLC trop court dommage. PS: Rapport qualité prix rien à redire.
  • Jolis graphismes
  • Pas effrayant
  • court
So far best horror game ive ever played maybe its becose im 14 xD
but if u want to be scared and dont want to sleep im giving this game 9/10 stars
i woud say best horror game in the year 2015 gl palying :)
  • perfect feeling
  • good story
  • not so long
  • nothing more
A story of obsession and loss
There’s a lot to wrap your head around in layers of fear
I’m still not even sure exactly what happened.
I was really impressed with how frequently things would change around me out of nowhere, I would turn around and there would be a door that wasn’t there before, or a hallway I just walked down is now a wall, maybe a creepy painting or a doll, every time you walked through a door you would be somewhere new, there is no back tracking in this game, its constantly taking you forward which is very appreciated and is ultimately what will get its hooks in you. The constant switching is hands down the highlight of the entire game for me, I’ve never seen anything like it, at least not at the level that its at here.
  • jump scares
  • creepy noises
I can recommend this game as an fairly interesting experience if nothing else.

I would recommend this game, but not highly. It was a good experience but not a great one. The story was good enough to keep the game moving. The presentation was fitting for the atmosphere of a horror game. Creepy but not scary. Overall, don't expect great gameplay or heart pounding, pants wetting moments. Expect a creepy story wrapped in a likewise presentation.
  • Creepy atmosphere fits well.
  • Tells a decent story with decent voice acting.
  • The soundtrack is very good.
  • Inheritance DLC adds a new perspective to the story.
  • Mulitple "endings" although...
  • I don't think I'll ever replay the game over again.
  • I did not find it very scary.
  • Attempted jump scares were lame
  • Gameplay was lacking. There were "puzzles" throughout the experience but these rarities came off as boring filler to me.
Great game with a great atmosphere.
I recommend buying.
excellent story.
The game I really liked. :)

I like being able to play the game again. :)
The graphics at a high level.
I recommend also buy DLC released.
