Distraint is a hand crafted adventure game series that really shows off just what a solo indie developer can accomplish, with enough effort, love and desire to accomplish a goal, release a game! The Distraint series really highlights a lot of things that actually occur in the real world and the consequences of those actions, bringing a survival horror aspect into the world of real world instances of seizing homes from people, if you have a heart at all, the series should really make you question a lot of things as you progress.
Distraint 2 really highlights a lot of internal human traits that tend to be neglected by a good portion of society, things such as finding a good balance with work and pleasure, making better choices, going for what you want and what makes you happy, never giving up hope, actually going through the grieving process for those you’ve lost and even pushing past guilt or memories of the past that still linger on in your conscious to the present day.
While i’m no psychologist, games like these really nail getting across subjects that would otherwise generally be ignored, doing it in a fashion that is not only interesting and interactive but also presented in a way that should for the most part, have your brain thinking about a lot of things.
Distraint 2 isn’t nearly as gory as the first game, it’s really just the style and story that set the mood, which for the second game is definitely much different than the first, fair warning.
A simple glance at Distraint 2 might be enough for you to think you know the game but let me tell you, it’s much more than what it appears to be and while it’s not in my list of top five adventure games, it is definitely a game i won’t be forgetting anytime soon.
