The highly anticipated sequel to the nerve-wracking horror game. Layers of Fear was announced recently in the wake of a partnership. This was the collaboration of 2 game developers with a passion for the horror genre. They are Bloober team and Gun media. You may know them from >observer_ by Bloober or Friday the 13th: the game by Gun.
Layers of Fear 2 plans to provide a memorable experience to horror game fans, as described by the teamed up developers. Wes Keltner of Gun Media stating
This collaboration between Gun and Bloober team is a perfect pairing. Our collective passion for crafting memorable and terrifying experiences lines up so well and both teams have an encyclopedic knowledge of horror. Add in the fact that the iconic Tony Todd is lending his commanding voice to this project, and I truly think we are creating a new masterpiece here.
Tony Todd for those of you who don’t know, is an award-winning actor that played the part of The Candyman most notably. But you might also know him from works such as Final Destination or even Star Trek.
Following this statement, Piotr Babieno of Bloober also added:
Revealing Layers of Fear 2 alongside the horror aficionados at Gun Media is an unprecedented moment. This partnership secures a passion for horror not yet seen on the market and puts a seal of quality on the game. To which no horror fan should remain indifferent.
Regarding the story itself, the developers had this to share with us:
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. 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.
Definitely, good news for horror game fans around the world if I do say so myself. Although for now, we don’t have a confirmed release date beside it being in 2019. It’s safe to say that the experience will be one to not miss out on, as we anticipate the release of “Layers of Fear 2” fueled by the passion of these two developers.
