DISTRAINT now available on Android!

Hey gamers! :)

The title pretty much sums it up, DISTRAINT: Pocket Pixel Horror is now available on Google Play!
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.winterveilstudios.DISTRAINT



It's super tough to get any exposure over there, I'd really, really appreciate if you guys could check it out. If you have Android device please consider downloading the game and dropping a review. Every single download and review helps getting more exposure!

You can also help by spreading the word. In fact, this is one of the best ways to get the word out there.

I don't like asking, but quite honestly I need all the possible support to "make it" on Google Play.

But yeah, thank you for reading and thank you for your awesome support! :)

Happy gaming,

Jesse

Reviews

“I don't think I could even suggest improvements off the top of my head to this game. For a psychological horror game, DISTRAINT is emotional, powerful, well-written and a joy to play.”
PC Gamer Girl

“Eerie, surreal, and chilling atmospheric elements surround this nightmarish moral tale of heartless greed. Very well done, intentionally made with simple designs to keep you focused on the main character and his spiral descent into insanity.”
GWTW

“If you’re looking for a great way to kill a few hours with a story-focused psychological horror, you could certainly do worse than Distraint.”
Twinfinite

About This Game

In order to forge a partnership from a famous company, Price seizes the property of an elderly woman.

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.

  • 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!

Can you live with the decisions you have made?
