Layers of Fear Gameplay

The player takes control of an artist who has returned to his studio. His initial goal is to complete his masterpiece, and the player’s role is to figure out how this task should be accomplished. The challenge comes from puzzles that require the player to search the environment for visual clues.

The house appears straightforward at first, but it changes around the player as they explore it in the first person. These changes in the environment provide scaffolding for the puzzles and provide regular jump scares common to games of this genre.

The game is divided into six chapters with various items for the player to find in order to complete his work. The game is heavily dimmed, and there are objects that uncover certain aspects of the painter’s history.

While completing the painting, there is a letter that is slowly pieced together, which shows the origin of his masterpiece, and objects which explain the secret of the painter through dialogue flashbacks.
