Stylized FPS Prodeus just smashed its Kickstarter funding goal and it still has more than a week left to go.

The official Prodeus Twitter account confirmed the news yesterday with an elated gif and caption. With 1,632 backers, $61,482 raised, and 11 days to go, this old-school-looking FPS looks to be on the right track.

A few weeks ago, OnlySP’s Ben Newman spoke with the game’s developers to talk about post-release support, modern FPS titles, and level design. Check out the full interview here.

So far, launch is only confirmed for PC players, though the game’s Kickstarter page does list an eventual console release as “targeted […] but not guaranteed.” Hopefully, the massive funding success leads to availability on all platforms.

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.
