The Bloober Team, a small team of independent developers based in Poland, offers us with Layers of Fear free pc not a video game, but an experience. Here, you will be both player and actor both in the interactions with your environment and with the scenes that you will have the choice to undergo. In Layers of Fear, you play the role of an investigator leading his little investigation on the tortuous past of a painter whose psychotic penchant is cold in the back. Locked in a manor, you will visit, piece after piece, all the nooks and crannies in search of reading allowing you to better understand what it returns. What’s interesting in Layers of Fear is the point of view that the developers have decided to make you take. Far from the role of player that we usually embody with our small inventory and pickup of objects of all kinds, here the interactions are minimal and the inventory does not exist. No need to think about storing any object, they will automatically register in a small corner of the screen and will be used as soon as you face the appropriate place.
Another rather interesting experimental point is how you will interact with your environment. One example would be the phrase gesture to speech to illustrate the point, except that here it will be more a question of joining gesture to action. Thus, to open a door, it will not be enough for you to simply click on it, but you will have to hold down the action button while using the mouse to create the opening movement. It will be the same for drawers, lights and other closets. It does not seem like anything, but in the circumstances of a first-person game like Layers of Fear, it brings a most functional immersion.
The immersion is most total and the alchemy implemented by the Bloober Team is excellent. The soundscape, the graphics and the atmosphere to make a frozen maggot shudder work perfectly. At each step that we make, we apprehend the next staging effect. All the codes of horror are present. We find in disorder the doors that open or close by themselves, the strange voices whispering behind your ears, the shadows that pass, the swinging windows and so on.
