Description
DISTRAINT is an upcoming 2D psychological horror adventure game for PC which will be released at Halloween.



You take the role of an ambitious young man named Price.

In order to gain a partnership from a famous company Price seizes a property of an old woman.
In that very moment he finds out he sold his humanity rather cheap.

This is his story and his regrets...




DISTRAINT is a horror-novel style of game. It is dark and grim but also features some black humor.

The story progresses fast which allows a lot of different settings and scenarios.
DISTRAINT is aimed to be around two hours of fun! Oh, and since the game won't be very long the price tag will also be low and well worth it!

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
  • Atmospheric soundtrack
  • Minimalist interface so the focus stays on the experience
  • Unique story full of weird and surprising scenarios



I'm very excited about this project. Let me tell you why!

I've been working on a game called "The Human Gallery" for the past 7 months. It's a pretty complicated project for a one man band and creating it takes a lot of time and involves lots of complicate code.

Well, at some point I felt I need to take a break as it was getting quite overwhelming. I needed to create something and see the actual progress. When I got that idea my wife suggested I should create a game for this Halloween.

ARE YOU NUTS?! That's... what... 3 months?
...
On second thought that is a BRILLIANT idea, I'll do it!

So here I am, crafting this cool horror-novel game and truly enjoying myself.
Now, I've opened a website where you can follow the progress:
