Spook yourself silly with a free copy of Layers of Fear from Humble Bundle

Matt Sayer 19 December 2017 NEWS


What better way to get in the Christmas spirit than by giving yourself the gift of goosebumps?

Ah, Christmas. A time for indulging in far too much chocolate and terrifying yourself with campy costumes and shlocky horror films. No, wait, that's Halloween, isn't it? Apparently I've been watching The Nightmare Before Christmas a few too many times and got my wires crossed.

Someone at Humble Bundle must be in the same boat because they've gone and made the bone-chilling horror game Layers of Fear completely free for the silly season. For the next 48 hours, you can grab yourself a copy of the mind-bending first-person title without handing over a single cent. Giving definitely fits in with the Christmas spirit, and even free spooks count as a gift – albeit one you might want to return after receiving it.

Unlike the many jump-scare-focused horror games that have emerged since Amnesia: The Dark Descent popularised the genre, Layers of Fear takes a more psychological approach to its horrors. Playing as a painter committed to finishing his masterpiece no matter the costs to his life or his psyche, you explore a creepy mansion in search of inspiration for his art. As you progress, the painter's sanity gradually crumbles, turning the world around him into a shattered amalgamation of personal fears and memories that would give M.C. Escher a run for his money.

Head on over to Humble Bundle to grab your free copy of Layers of Fear, but don't come knocking on our door if you find yourself dreaming of your own disturbing masterpiece.
