DISTRAINT: Deluxe Edition – $0.99
DISTRAINT is a 2D psychological horror adventure game you can play for free from this link. The deluxe edition features more colour, better animations and improved audio for a more immersive atmosphere. DISTRAINT is around a two-hour experience where you will need to solve a variety of puzzles to progress. To get the best experience, I recommend the deluxe version which is why it’s included in today’s list of games on sale.
