Developer Bloober Team, the studio that loves psychological horror games and messing with their players' perception of reality, has decided to give its Layers of Fear franchise the movie adaptation treatment. The developer is known for the Layers of Fear franchise, the futuristic thriller Observer, and the video game adaptation of the Blair Witch.

For now, we don't have much information on the movie itself in terms of the cast, technology used, or even if the story will follow the title's or will have its own original narrative to follow. The only thing confirmed so far is Project Nerd Boss being behind the directing wheel. The studio doesn't have any actual releases under their belt, but they might surprise all of us and go all out on Layers of Fear. 

 

The only piece of information related to the studio available online is a company by the name HIVEMIND filing a trademark application for Project Nerd Boss. A good indication is the announcement confirms the Layers of Fear movie has already been in production for over two years now. We hope to see more information coming out from Bloober Team on its current state, and who knows? A short teaser trailer would be nice too.

This is definitely not the first time we see a successful horror title receive the movie adaptation treatment, with the likes of Resident Evil and Silent Hill setting the precedent for what the public expects. In the meantime, we are still waiting for any updates on the Five Nights at Freddy's movie supposedly in the works.

 
 

Layers of Fear is regarded as one of the best indie horror titles in recent times, with its original 2016 release and 2019 sequel receiving critical acclaim for sound design, its unique world, keeping players constantly on edge, and the well-executed narrative throughout both titles. The original title recently received the VR treatment, delivering a new method for players to enjoy the title with all its creepiness.

What do you think of Layers of Fear coming to the big screen? What other indie horror titles you would like to see receiving a similar treatment? Off the top of my head, SOMA and Amnesia would make incredible horror movies if executed correctly. Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
