The timing might not be right with the disturbing imagery and storytelling found in the game, but as it’s for free, this is only a small niggle. I already wrote a review about this game, so feel free to check it out. The DLC Inheritance isn’t included, but the soundtrack is, and as it’s usually priced 5 Euros alone, this is even interesting for those who bought the Humble Spooky Bundle which featured both games.
While Layers of Fear is certainly not without its problems and can’t quite live up to its hype, it’s still a pretty good scary ride while it lasts, taking the player into the disturbed mind of a painter and into the world of a house that constantly changes, which make it rather unique in the genre. Listening to the soundtrack alone in the dark is definitely not recommended for the faint of heart, as it’s just as weird and horrifying. So maybe you’ll just grab the key and play both the game and its musical score after Christmas? But don’t wait too long, because the offer already expires tomorrow, Wednesday, December 20, 2017 at 10 a.m. Pacific time.
