Cracow-based Bloober Team have a fresh trailer and dev diary out for Layers of Fear 2. The theme this time around is the history of cinema; it influences every aspect of the game's subject matter and direction. Another persistent theme is not having enough time, evocatively ground out in his signature gravel by Star Trek and horror legend Tony Todd, as he narrates the new trailer. I missed the original Layers of Fear but Bloober Team's >observer_ (GN review) left me deeply unsettled, so the studio's horror chops are not in question as far as I am concerned. Layers of Fear 2 slated for a release sometime later this year.
