Layers of Fear is a first person horror game. The game creates a dark, psychedelic experience combining themes of madness and classical paining. The creators mixed up elements characteristic to classic horror movies, as well as solutions used in Amnesia series and games like Antichamber, Dear Esther, or Gone Home. In the game you take on the role of a 19th-century painter striving to finish his masterpiece. In order to reach that goal you have to explore his manor in search of needed items. However, the protagonist struggles with mental problems, turning exploration into chaotic travel through the artist’s troubled mind, during which you learn of his past and the history of his family.
You explore the game’s world and interact with various objects in first person perspective. This pattern resembles what was used in Amnesia: The Dark Descent, where seemingly simple tasks (e.g. open the door with a key) turn out to be long and terrifying journeys. In the game you can use various objects (grand piano, chains, levers, buttons), open cabinets, drawers, or doors, and read notes left here and there. You cannot use a weapon or any other self-defense tools, and the game features no HUD bars (like a sanity bar), although confronting visions haunting the hero may lead to his “death”. Occasionally, sudden bogeys come out from nowhere, raising the tension.
Layers of Fear is built on Unity 3D engine, whose potential was used to create richly detailed locations. In order o make the game even darker, the developers created a network of claustrophobic rooms and narrow hallways, and properly used scarce lighting and specific color saturation. The protagonist’s house – a vast Victorian-style manor – is filled with disturbing paintings, most of which were created specially for the game. The game engine proves its worth especially when rooms are shifting their shape or laws of physics are diverted.
