Earlier this year, Layers of Fear developers Bloober Team teased a new project in development tentatively titled Project Melies. The team revealed that that Project Melies is in fact Layers of Fear II, a sequel to their first-person indie horror game.
You can check out the teaser trailer below.
Bloober Team and publisher Gun Media haven’t added any more details, even platforms, but the previous game was launched on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC simultaneously in 2016. A definitive edition came out on the Nintendo Switch earlier this year.
The first game was a horror title that put players in the role of a nameless protagonist whose paintings haunted him, both literally and figuratively. It was a fairly large success on Steam, owing to its P.T. influence at a time where appetite for the gradual haunted house horror genre was ravenous. The sequel seems to focus on acting as a primary profession versus painting.
Layers of Fear II will be released in 2019.
