What is Layers of Fear 2?
Layers of Fear was a best seller in 2016 across multiple platforms, winning industry accolades. We reviewed it when it released and called it “a finely-tuned psychological horror.”
Set on a desolate ship, Layers of Fear 2 will rely on the claustrophobic, ever-changing environments to keep players in the dark. You will never know what horror to expect around every corner or through every door. The feeling of uneasiness and terror will be enhanced by influences from classic cinematography ranging from the experimental works of Georges Méliès to the twists and turns used by Alfred Hitchcock.
