Layers of Fear, one of the biggest surprises in the scary games of recent years, was an adventure of psychological horror in the first person focused on the narrative and exploration that put us in the skin of an artist and led us to explore a mansion full of sinister paintings. And at the end of 2018, its managers announced the sequel with a brief teaser. At the moment it is all we know, but we are willing to go back to immerse ourselves in this portrait of terror. It is one of the scary and horror games in 2019.

After the terrific demo PT Silent Hills, developed by Hideo Kojima with the collaboration of Guillermo del Toro and Norman Reedus, there were many “spiritual successors” that were announced to cover the gap of their cancellation. One of the most promising is Visage: a first-person horror game, set in the early eighties in an old mansion, which was funded by Kickstarter. It is one of the scary and horror games in 2019. And after several delays, it seems that Visage will finally launch in 2019 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
Set in a terrifying universe of strange shapes and grim finish, Scorn is an atmospheric first-person horror adventure that draws on the designs of HR Giger, the master responsible for Alien aesthetics (Ridley Scott, 1979), to put before us a world where flesh and machines come together to give life to our worst nightmares. The first part, Scorn Part 1 of 2: Dasein, had planned its release in 2018 for PC. So we crossed our fingers so that we see it in 2019 (and if possible, on more platforms).
