Distraint is a two-dimensional point & click adventure, representing a genre of psychological horrors. In production we play the role of a young, ambitious man, facing a difficult choice, who may ruin the life of an elderly woman. The title was developed by the Finnish independent producer Jesse Makkonen.


At Distraint we control the fate of a young man named Price. In order to secure his shares in a well-known company, a man has to occupy the apartment of an older woman. In making this decision, he embarks on a path that will force him to discover the price of his humanity. Distraint tells the story of his dilemmas, actions and guilt.


Distraint is a classic point & click adventure. The player moves around the locations, collects objects, talks with characters and solves simple puzzles (usually using some piece of equipment, getting to the right place, or finding something on the screen). The main attraction of this production is a disturbing and thought-provoking story.

Game modes
