    DISTRANT is a little, hidden, gem. It's a story about humanity and it's not an usual horror. In fact you can see blood only a couple of times, there aren't no jumpscares.

    And the story is something wonderful, so "human", so dark.

    Give it a try, it's cheap!

    I rated it an 9 because the game could have gone for much longer, just because the atmosphere was so awesome, and the horror bits where truly horrific.

    It's a cute little game with a nice story. It takes less than 2 hours to get through, and it has basically no replay value. I paid about $1 during a Steam sale, and it was worth that price. I would probably be pissed off if I paid $5 for it.

    Buy this game if it's on sale for $2 or less.

    Ein unglaublich packendes Spiel von einem ein Mann Team. Gelungenes Pixel Art, mitreissende Hintergrundsmusik und einige Jump Scares. Props an den Entwickler. Ein Muss für jeden Horrospiele fan.

    DISTRAINT is a game with a rich and eloquent plot, which will open up to the players the depravity of the modern world and will try to create a storm of moral conflicts within.

    Such an incredible experience, an emotional game on a genre filled with empty and uninteresting plots.

    The game is short, but it still has the ability to be incredible. Seriously, this game deals very well with issues of greed and thirst for power. Despite having a super sad footprint, I just loved it.

    A modest but oddly compelling adventure steeped in perpetual darkness, the surreal side-scrolling Distraint is a low-cost exploration of the high price of selling one’s soul.

    While the story isn’t especially long, it’s absorbing and gives you a lot to think about.

    Considering the atmosphere and the story Distrain is a job well done – instead of ostentatious horror it scares mainly with its realism and spooky normality, wrapped in occasional psychedelia. From time to time I lacked the option to control the game with a mouse and some game mechanics could be more user-friendly. These minor flaws, however, do not change the fact, Distrain is very pleasant experience.
