Horror has never been my favourite genre, be it in movies or games. The last true horror game I can remember playing was the original Resident Evil on the Playstation, and that was some time ago! However the March 2017 Games with Gold lineup included “Layers of Fear”, a game which in the video below I assumed was new but was in fact released a year or so ago. The quick pitch is that you play a deranged painter, going room to room in first person solving puzzles and trying to complete your magnum opus without crapping your pants in real life. I played the first 45 minutes or so and it was definitely effective in ramping up the tension from the get-go!
