A new first-person psychological horror game? Oh boy, I’m listening. From behind the couch, obviously.

Layers of Fear is out now on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. With a unique visual style inspired by the great masters of art, it casts players in the role of a troubled artist whose crowning achievement will be to escape his inner demons and haunted past – by getting them pinned down on the canvas. I don’t mean that in the wrestling sense.

Here’s the launch trailer, to give you an idea:

Watch on YouTube

As with most horror games this one seem to have been a bit divisive; it scored very well in some reviews and fairly average in others. Worth having a click around if horror’s your bag but you’re on a budget.
