Take the Train Journey of a Lifetime in Nightline

Published

on

Colorfiction, the developer of dreamy walking simulator 0°N 0°W, has released a new game entitled Nightline, which serves as a kind of companion piece to  0°N 0°W. 

The project was dreamed up and produced during PROCJAM 2018, a game jam focused on procedural-generation. The title serves as a meditation on travel, as players ride a nighttime train through a seemingly unending metropolis.

The architecture and infinite-design of Nightline hearkens back to the artistic sensibilities of 0°N 0°W, with the ambient noise being sourced directly from NYC’s MTA transit system. Much of the game’s graffiti, too, is directly drawn from photographic material of the subway.

The incorporation of real-life material into Nightline‘s trippy dreamscape implies that Colorfiction may not be done building on its previous project. The game is available for free directly on the itch.io, with the trailer embedded below:

Layers of Fear 2 Launching Late Next Month

Layers of Fear 2

Layers of Fear 2 has been talked about for a while now and is finally coming late next month.

Announced today by publisher Gun Media, the sequel to the psychological romp through artistic ego Layers of Fear is set to launch May 28 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

Gameplay-wise, the sequel looks to cover similar ground as its predecessor. As a first-person psychological horror with “an emphasis on exploration and story,” players meander through heavily-scripted set-pieces while solving puzzles and being scared a whole lot.

Layers of Fear 2, though, will be swapping the paintbrush for the dizzying heights of Hollywood. According to the game’s Steam synopsis, players “control a Hollywood actor who heeds the call of an enigmatic director to take on the lead role in a film shot aboard an ocean liner.”

Stifled by their own acting ambitions, the protagonist finds themselves alone and marooned on an increasingly nightmarish boat. The game’s unnamed protagonist must navigate their own past and the challenges the director sets them to unlock the secret to not just the film they are starring in, but their own motivations.

The original Layers of Fear was a captivating take on modern, story-driven horror, so the sequel’s inventive premise and greater scope are welcomed. While the sequel is embarking to a radically different setting, the title looks likely to recapture the original’s claustrophobic, atmospheric level design.
