Distraint is a pixel indie horror released on October 21, 2015 by independent developer Yasse Makkonen.
The plot is based on a story about a young collector who wants to become a partner of the company for which he works. However, for this you need to kill a few more lives. But can the main character achieve the goal and not “lose himself”? ?
In the game, the main character has an inventory in which there are 3 slots. There is no combination here, and each item that a player selects can only be used once and for one target. There are also different puzzles, which are given below.
The game has a very creepy atmosphere that does not allow the player to relax, forcing him to frantically walk around the locations. However, when a gamer gets used to it, the game may suddenly give him a screamer, from which the heart “goes to the heels.”
There are ordinary people who do not stand out, but later you can see how they do terrible things.
The main character
The main character is a collector who should confiscate housing from debtors. Because of this, he is tormented by nightmares.
It is this struggle of compassion and the desire to achieve everything at the expense of the misery of others that will last throughout the game. The agony of the protagonist shows that he is not so bad, thereby forcing the player to penetrate the protagonist.
There is a variety of music in the game: there is an eerie that scares the player even more, calm, which gives the player a little rest and relax, and there is also a blues melody.
Distraint is a great horror telling an interesting story, while raising important human issues. The game has great music, logical puzzles and an unexpected ending.
Next will be the spoilers associated with the plot.
The author wanted to convey in his game that people should be more human, capable of compassion for others. You can not profit from another misfortune, otherwise you will cease to be a man and you can lose everything!
