This painter is going crazy. He's using murderous terms to put the capstone on his crowning achievement. Layers of Fear has brought home 97% positive reviews ("reviews overwhelmingly positive") on Steam Early Access. That's pretty scary in and of itself.
Developer Bloober Team has teamed up with Aspyr Media to market and distribute Layers of Fear across several platforms. "It's truly been a blast working with a group so dedicated to the craft of beautifully scaring the s*** out of people, and adding in our own flavor of insanity," said Aspyr Media's vice president of publishing, Elizabeth Howard. Piotr Babieno, chief executive officer at Bloober Team, said, "They immediately got what we were trying to achieve with Layers of Fear and happily dived into our world of madness."
Layers of Fear will be on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on February 16. Horror is having a moment right now. It doesn't matter that it's nowhere near Halloween.
