DISTRAINT is a 2D psychological horror adventure game.

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.

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

Ratings and Reviews
A rare game on the app store!
These are the kind of games that I just can’t help but smile when I come across. It’s very well made and a perfect length at two hours. If you like phycological horror type games then this is a must play. The controls are simple and the games runs butter smooth. Other developers should be following in the footsteps of this developer and remember that they are making a game on a phone and create everything built around that notion. I can’t wait to play the second one!!
I’d left this unplayed for about a year, just another title in my backlog of games. I decided to play it this Halloween, fully expecting a creepy horror game. What I wasn’t expecting was to get emotionally punched in the gut.
Yeah the controls are a bit finicky (gotta face just so to get the interaction prompt), yeah there’s one crazy segment where I got thoroughly confused and had to check a walkthrough, but oh man none of that matters because the story will knock the wind out of you. Especially these days, when evictions are absolutely through the roof and people everywhere are being thrown from their homes into the streets.
Timely game, especially if you like emotionally charged horror, or if you dislike landlords.
A game everyone should talk about
I’ve stumbled upon Distraint randomly few years ago, when it was just launched and I was mesmerized by the story. Not just the overall story (which is truly astonishing) but the story of Price and every poo soul he meets in his path. Without a doubt - I knew I played the best horror game for mobile, I’ll remember the sad and haunting story forewer. I won’t write down any spoilers, so I’ll end the review with saying that I’ve played it in two days the first time I got it. I’m glad I have the deluxe version now. Looking forward to part 2.
