Let the Horror Wars begin! Western horror philosophy (Layers of Fear: Legacy) & an Eastern take on the subject (Detention) bundled for a limited time!

From different mindsets, to overall assumptions, to tiny little details, horror games developed in the West and in the Far East can be extremely diverse.

And there’s no better time to verify how fear tastes when developers from two different corners of the world fiddle with it – both Layers of Fear: Legacy and Detention are bundled on the Nintendo eShop.

So, if you buy either Layers of Fear: Legacy (https://ift.tt/2Jp5j81) or Detention (https://ift.tt/2IP9MmV) from the EU or US Nintendo eShop, you’ll get a 30% discount for the other game. But be quick – the promo only lasts till May 21st. It’s your last chance to get this sweet deal!

But don’t just take our word for it when we say these Western philosophy and Eastern approaches to creating horror games are two completely different stories. Read our article on Gamasutra where we discuss how our teams met, where the horror discussion came from, and what you can expect from both titles.


Layers of Fear: Legacy is a psychological, psychedelic horror game about a madness-engulfed painter striving to create his magnum opus. Learn the dark story of his past while gathering the carefully crafted personal items that can be found in the game. Traverse a vision-induced, ever-changing house full of supernatural phenomena where each move of the camera can shift the environment, and discover the artist’s true motive.


Detention is a unique atmospheric horror game heavily influenced by Taiwanese/East Asian culture, religious elements, and mythology. Set in 1960s Taiwan under martial law, in this 2D atmospheric horror side-scroller the player controls characters who venture into a school beset by hostile supernatural events to uncover the stories behind the haunted place. The game features a unique gaming experience and stunning graphics.
