Aspyr Media and developer #BlooberTeam are very proud to unleash their #landmark horror #title, Layers of Fear, now #available to players around the world on Linux, Mac and Windows PC with Overwhelmingly Positive review. To commemorate this haunting occasion, Bloober Team has put together a brief letter to fans and media:
We would like to take this opportunity and thank all of our fans and the media who covered Layers of Fear prior to its full release. The abundance of your comments, constructive critique, ideas and general feedback greatly influenced the final product. Without you Layers of Fear would have been a different game, and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for taking the time and having the will to help us shape this Masterpiece of Fear.
The title “Layers of Fear” was obliging for us – we developed the game with different layers in mind that would slowly reveal themselves to a patient player. It’s not just another horror on the market; Layers of Fear is a kind of personal journey, a unique experience for everyone willing to play it. If you think you have discovered everything that is there to see in the game, then you are probably wrong. Here each and every element serves a purpose – not only to push the plot forward but to help you discover something about you as a person. We know it sounds a little pompous, but believe us when we say that if you take the time to reflect on what’s happening around you it will be the biggest reward you will get from playing the game.
You have probably read the first reviews that hit the web this week, and you may have noticed a discrepancy between them. While a number of reviewers have given the game perfect marks, there are also a few dissenting opinions. We don’t want to start a discussion on who is right or wrong here; what you need to take from this is that Layers of Fear is a game which you either love or hate. The game has been tailored to be a unique experience for everyone, and nothing will be perfect for everyone.
Once again, we would like to thank everyone involved in co-producing Layers of Fear! Have a great scare with our game, ponder on the themes presented within, and never look back!
