Horror title 'Layers of Fear' is free to claim on the Humble Store

The Humble Store kicked off its Indie Mega Week sale earlier today and staying true to its recent parade of game giveaways, the store has once again put a game up for anyone to claim for free. This time around it is the indie horror title, Layers of Fear, from the Polish developer, Bloober Team.

The game released in early 2016 and lets players follow the story of a deranged artist who is trying to finish his masterpiece. The gameplay is puzzle based, and players are tasked with searching the game's various dimly lit environments for items to finish the "work of art." Obviously, being a horror game, be prepared for bizarre and creepy sights, as well as for some jump scares.

A list of features taken from the game's store page reads:

  • Psychedelic horror – A sense of insanity means each turn of the camera may completely change the look of your surroundings.
  • Victorian setting – Explore a game world inspired by masterpiece paintings, architecture and décor from the 19th century.
  • Original and classic art – Numerous pieces of original art and music flesh out the story and environment.
  • Story-focused exploration – Only through exploring the environment can you uncover the details of the painter’s dark and tragic past.

The game's soundtrack is also included in the giveaway, which comes with 16 tracks that supposedly, "perfectly manifest terror and fear."

Usually available for $24.99 on the Humble Store, Layers of Fear is free to claim for the next two days. The store will provide a key that is redeemable on Steam, and the game is playable on Windows, macOS, and Linux.

Be sure to have a peek at the store's aforementioned indie sale as well, which features some big hitters such as Hollow Knight, Cuphead, and more.
