Layers of Fear Walkthrough

2. General hints and tips

Please read all points before continuing. They are very helpful!

  • Fortunately, the way the game saves collectibles, it means you do not have to pick them all up in one playthrough.
  • Chapter select/new game will allow you to find any missing collectibles. I will have a checklist for every single collectible on a later page.
  • You can check collectibles in the Magnum Opus room on the wall and in the book on the cabinet. Words cannot be checked.
  • There are 59 collectibles in this game.
  • Throughout this WT, I will list each collectible as soon as it appears during the story. I will list them as Word#1 = W#1, Memo#1 = M#1, Rat Drawing 1 = R#1 etc.
  • I'd advise you to turn up the brightness more than the default, but not all the way up. This will make searching a bit easier. It doesn't ruin the atmosphere in my opinion.
  • Change your in-game sensitivity up to the highest it can go. You'll be doing a lot of turning in this game.
  • You can die in the game. Although there are no consequences for death, it may potentially be linked to which ending you receive.
  • You can walk faster using cn_LT
  • Open as many drawers and cabinets as soon as possible to get:

Inspired OCD in Layers of Fear
Search 100 drawers and cabinets
  • Unlocked by 34,799 tracked gamers (68% - TA Ratio = 1.20) 51,013

  • Please read and understand the Legend before starting.
