Find out why critics praise ‘Layers of Fear’ so much...if you dare.

Many horror games are mindless, gore-spattered escapades through zombie country. Layers of Fear couldn't be more different.

This first-person adventure is set in a beautiful Victorian mansion, filled with original artwork. You take the persona of an insane artist whose goal is to complete your Magnum Opus—but the game keeps messing with your mind at every turn.

Critics universally love this game for its intense story and stunning (but creepy) visuals. You’ll encounter frights around every corner, many of them psychological: doors disappear before your eyes, and paintings warn you of nearby danger.

While Layers of Fear is very much a horror game, it plays like a twisted scavenger hunt. The mansion is huge, and there are so many notes and pictures to find, all leading to your ultimate goal.

You can grab this Steam-powered favorite now via the Daily Dot store for $9.99, which is half the regular price. Order now to start playing one of the best horror games ever made. Buy it here.
