Departure Lounge: The heart-stopping art in Layers of Fear

Some art isn't for the faint of heart, and neither are some games. In this week's episode of Departure Lounge we venture into the unsettling gallery of a bizarre painter, desperately trying to bring his disturbing works to life in Layers of Fear. Though it's already available through Steam's Early Access, this creepy story is the next game coming to the Xbox One's Game Preview program. Sadly, we don't yet have access to the escape route of "Xbox, Go Home" if this broadcast gets too eerie for us to handle. It all goes down today at 6:30PM ET / 3:30PM PT.
