About DISTRAINT: Deluxe Edition

About this game

THE 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 with 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!"

FEATURES

DISTRAINT is a horror-novel style of game. It is dark and grim but also has its share of dark humour.

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
  • A 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."

DELUXE

DISTRAINT has been doing quite well thanks to the awesome community!
Deluxe Edition is my thanks to you. Take a look at what's new:

  • Dynamic colouring - Goodbye grey, hello colour!
  • No more lanterns - Increased environmental lighting
  • Enhanced animation, graphics, and lighting effects
  • Refined audio for a better atmosphere
  • Improved user interface


"These people are treated like cattle..."

"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."
