DESCRIPTION

DISTRAINT is a 2D psychological horror adventure game, originally developed and released on Steam (PC) in 2015.

You step into the shoes of an ambitious young man named Price.
In order to forge a partnership from a famous company, Price seizes the property of an elderly woman.
In that very moment he finds out the price of his humanity.

This is his story and the tale of his regrets...


FEATURES

DISTRAINT is a horror-novel style of game. It is dark and grim but also has its share of dark humor.
The story progresses quickly which allows for several settings and scenarios.
Your journey will last around two hours!

The gameplay is simple but effective: You move left and right, illuminate the way with your lantern and solve puzzles to progress through the story.
NOTE: The mobile version of the game does not include lantern!

  • Side scrolling 2D with unique, hand drawn graphics
  • Atmospheric music and sound design
  • Minimalist interface so your focus never wavers from the experience
  • Delve into a unique story full of intriguing twists
  • One man effort - Graphics, animation, coding, music... You name it!



  • HISTORY:

    After releasing my debut game called Silence of the Sleep 1st of October in 2014, I started working on a game called The Human Gallery.
    At some point, I faced so many technical difficulties I decided to take a break from The Human Gallery. At this point, my wife suggested me that I should create a game for the next Halloween (2015).
    Back then it was only a three months away, but I liked the idea! I started developing DISTRAINT, knowing I only had so little time.

    A little before the Halloween, I was able to release my game, awesome! :)


    Late 2016 I was quite surprised how popular DISTRAINT got and decided to port it over to Android devices.

    I released Android port in late 2016. Again it took me by surprise... so many downloads!

    I decided to release on iOS, and I did in April 2017.
