Uncover the Secrets of a Dutch Billionaire’s Villa in Privacy

Published

Privacy

Codalyn, the single-developer studio behind Stable Orbit, recently released a teaser trailer for Privacy, its new narrative adventure into a Dutch billionaire’s villa.

Although the trailer leaves much to the imagination, it takes viewers into a child’s bedroom and reads that players will have to “uncover the secrets” hidden by billionaire Robert-Paul den Heer. The bedroom suggests that he leaves a son after his passing, named Daryl, who seems to be a big fan of stuffed animals.

The piano heard in the trailer offers an eerie touch, as does the description provided by the game’s developer, Jim Offerman, on the official website:

“In the summer of 2079, you are sent to the home of Robert-Paul den Heer, a billionaire CEO who is recently deceased. As you approach the lavish villa, your boss calls to remind you of your task: secure Mr. Den Heer’s latest research. Hubert, the house AI, has been informed of your arrival and will assist you in retrieving the files.”

“As you dig deeper, you slowly piece together a series of events that shaped Mr. Den Heer’s past, our present… and more.”

Privacy is set for release sometime in 2020 and will be initially available on computers running Windows and macOS. The game will be sold via Steam and is currently up for preorder on itch.io.

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.
