With its surreal setting and constantly shifting rooms Layers of Fear is a game that is both immersive and captivating. It loves messing with your perception, but also features enough jump scares to keep you on edge all the time. Unless you take the time to explore your surroundings and uncover the clues you’ll miss out on most of the story elements, so it is not a game to rush through. Thanks to its beautiful visuals and excellent audio it is definitely a cut above similar titles in the genre.
Gameplay: Minimal puzzles, but simply exploring the surreal setting of the game is a nerve wracking experience.
Graphics: Very polished and highly detailed.
Sound: Quiet when it needs to be, but also very effective at using audio to unnerve players
