Ever since I told you about Layers of Fear officially launching this month, I haven’t been able to stop thinking about the horror game. How can I ensure that I never have to play it? Can I outrun Geoff when he tries to hand me a review copy? Should I feign sickness, or even death?
All these thoughts and more have been circulating my brain for weeks, because honestly, Layers of Fear looks goddam terrifying. I don’t ever want to touch it. Never, ever, EVER.
I’m running out of time to think up an escape plan however, because the release date of the game looms closer and closer. Just looking at my calendar now nearly gave me a heart attack – the horror will be out on February 16, which is in just 5 days time… SH*T SH*T SH*T!
You know, maybe I’m just being silly. It can’t be that bad, can it? I don’t know hey… this brand new gameplay trailer doesn’t exactly come packed with roses and butterflies or anything (via PC Gamer):
Delve deep into the mind of an insane painter and discover the secret of his madness, as you explore a vast and constantly changing Victorian-era mansion. Uncover the visions, fears and horrors that entwine the painter and finish the masterpiece he has strived so long to create.
“Wow! Let’s all rush out and play that!” – said no rational, sane person ever. No seriously, Layers of Fear is covered in NOPE material, so I won’t be playing it, thank you very much.
And now I’m back to wondering how I’m going to escape the inevitable review copy landing on my desk. Shall I leave the country? Grow a beard and pretend to be a hipster? The potential solutions are vast, but I don’t know which will be most effective at getting Geoff off my case!
