Layers of Fear is a first-person psychedelic horror game with the focus placed firmly on story and exploration. What this means in gameplay terms is that you will have to roam around a constantly changing Victorian mansion, peruse a variety of artwork that may or may not try to scare the living daylight out of you, and naturally, figure out what in the world is even happening.

If any of this sounds like something you would love to experience, you should head on over to Humble Bundle in order to grab yourself a free copy. Just make sure to be quick as the offer will only last for another 4 hours as of time of writing!

For those of you wondering whether Layers of Fear is even worth your time, it would appear the answer is yes. I haven't played it myself so I can't give you any specifics, but according to the overwhelmingly positive Steam reviews its atmosphere and storytelling are excellent, while the various horror elements are a bit of a mixed bag. So if you're more interested in exploration than getting constantly spooked, Layer of Fear seems like its worth a try.

And finally, allow me to leave you with the original launch trailer. It should give you a decent overview of just what Layers of Fear is all about. Enjoy!
