    The psychological horror game Layers of Fear is free for a limited time on Steam. No catch, click the button and it's yours forever. I've watched a few videos of it and it looks really good if you're into the genre.

    Layers of Fear is a first-person psychedelic horror game with a heavy focus on story and exploration. Players take control of a painter whose sole purpose is to finish his Magnum Opus.

    I got an invalid link after signing in but hit back to the game page (after signing in) and it worked.

    Thanks for the heads-up. Downloading right now.

    Got the game not because it was free but because it gave me a darker Myst feeling from the trailer.

    rgMekanic thanks for this. I watched a friend at a lan party play it. What he showed me was awesome I just didn't have the fund to grab it at the time. Look forward to getting to finally play it instead of just watch some of it be played.

    Got it free a while back. There's a few good jump scares, but the overall level design is boring and very repetitive.

    I grabbed it thru the steam app. For these free games I usually just search and install that way instead of any links given.

    Thanks rgMekanic! Looks like a fun one.

    Decent game, worth picking up if you like a short little visual storybook with some neat visual effects, something to spend a slow evening on.

    Lol yeah! I was looking at when this OP posted this and said WTF! Usually these free deals are 24hrs.

    I got it the last time it was free from HUMBLE BUNDLE. Its an awesome game, a great story to get lost in. The graphics might be outdated, but it still plays very well, and the atmosphere along with the music is very well done..a great mindfuck.

    Looks like the GoG version is on a 75% discount at the moment. Not as good as 100%, but interested parties who missed the freebie (me) take note!

    Did you turn the sound settings down? If I turn the sound down past around 75% there is no sound.
