DISTRAINT is back, bigger and better!

DISTRAINT 2 is a sequel to overwhelmingly positive little horror title on Steam: store.steampowered.com/app/395170

DISTRAINT 2 is an upcoming 2D psychological horror adventure game for PC.

You are Price, a man who sold his humanity to get a partnership from a leading company: McDade, Bruton & Moore.

DISTRAINT 2 follows the events of the first game. It's a sinister tale about restoring hope and finding your purpose.

How does one fight without hope?

DISTRAINT 2 has a dark story but also has its share of dark humor.

The gameplay is simple but effective: You move left and right, collect items and solve puzzles to progress through the engaging story.
  • Side-scrolling 2D with unique, hand drawn graphics
  • Carefully composed music specifically for each situation of the game
  • Atmospheric sound design
  • Minimalist yet efficient interface so the focus stays intact
  • Delve into a complex story full of intriguing twists and characters
  • Hand made in Finland, no asset flips or cheap tricks! :)

Still wondering if you'd enjoy this game?

Fair point! See, I like old horror-adventure games, and I believe that shows in DISTRAINT 2.
No cheap jump-scares or mindless gore but psychological horror with a deeper meaning.

Think about Silent Hill + Zelda + Monkey Island, and you got yourself DISTRAINT 2. I know that combo sounds a bit weird, but hey, it's a unique game! :)

You guys probably already know, but the competition is crazy! I mean, it's not like I'm battling with other horror games, but the number of games overall. It's extremely hard to stand out.

That said I can appreciate all the feedback and support from the players, thank you!

If you're eager to learn more about the progress, I'd say Twitter is the best place for that: https://twitter.com/jesse_makkonen
