Observer developer unveils Layers of Fear 2
Finally Bloober Team revealed that their mysterious Project Méliès game is the cinema-themed horror Layers of Fear 2. The first Layers of Fear was released back in 2016 and it told the story of a tortured artist who slowly succumbs to madness.
We can expect the game to be released like the first one in PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
In the meantime check out the Trailer:
Interestingly, Layers of Fear 2’s reveal trailer features numerous sequences that appear to unfold within the extravagant confines of a luxurious ocean liner – and it seems that we’re trading the first game’s classic haunted mansion setting for more nautical surroundings this time. Which probably explains all the water we got in Project Méliès’ initial reveal.
“Set on a desolate ship, Layers of Fear 2 will rely on the claustrophobic, ever-changing environments to keep players in the dark, never knowing what horror to expect around every corner and through every door,” explains Bloober, “The feeling of uneasiness and terror will be enhanced by influences from classic cinematography ranging from the experimental works of Georges Méliès to the twists and turns used by Alfred Hitchcock.”
Elsewhere, there are plenty of hints of the kind of surreal artistry that made both the original Layers of Fear and Bloober’s sci-fi horror follow-up Observer such memorable experiences. Hopefully, Layers of Fear 2 will adopt the learnings of Observer too, which offered a far more restrained slice of atmospheric horror compared to the jump-scare-laden Layers of Fear.
