Discord server for my games is up!

Hey guys,

I decided to create a Discord server for my games. Felt like a good idea, chatting with players would be easier, and I'd love to show some progress there too.

If you're using Discord, please consider joining, see you there! :)

DISTRAINT: Deluxe Edition is now available for Android and iOS!

Hey guys! :)

Quite a few people asked if I was going to release "Deluxe Edition" for mobile devices as well. At first, I told them "no", but more and more people asked... Well, it took a lot of work to port it over as I couldn't use the same dynamic coloring system. I also got rid of the black borders so on 16:9 mobile devices DISTRAINT: Deluxe Edition uses the whole screen.

It also has the "Deluxe Edition" updates same as on PC; all-new animation, more audio etc.



But yeah, like I said it took a lot of time and effort, so I decided to make it premium. Exciting to see how it goes. :)

Also, DISTRAINT 2 is coming soon. Unfortunately not this May as I first planned, but very likely next August. It will be worth the wait, I promise!

“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




DISTRAINT is a 2D psychological horror adventure game for PC.

You step into the shoes of an ambitious young man named Price.

In order to secure a partnership in 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...

"We have yet to see you DANCE, son!"


_______________________________________________________



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 and solve puzzles to progress through the atmospheric 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 - No asset flips or cheap tricks, just hard work!

"Snow... no wonder these folks are so absent."
