PRESS RELEASE

 

Madrid, Spain, November 9th, 2018: After messing with the perception of thousands of PC players, Distrust takes the leap to consoles with its premiere on PlayStation 4 (exclusively in digital format).

Distrust is an adventure that takes place in Antarctica and combines crafting and several elements from RPG and survival... as well as a number of features that bring its story close to the genre of terror.

Clearly inspired by John Carpenter's The Thing, Distrust will test your ability to survive in extreme conditions and your ability to distinguish reality and hallucination.   

A helicopter crash left a group of explorers stranded near an Arctic base. As they try to find a way back, all they are doing is sinking deeper into a nightmare scenario. When they sleep, they attract a terrifying force that sucks the life out of their bodies, but the longer they battle exhaustion and stay awake, the less likely they are to survive...   

As the survivors try to sleep just enough to stave off fatigue without dying, they slowly go mad and eventually reach the point where they can no longer trust their senses. In time, they can't even tell the difference between reality and a hallucination.  

Main features:

Guide the survivors through a randomly generated Arctic base, overcome the severe climate and fight the unfathomable!

  • Gameplay involving an extreme climate.
  • Randomly generated levels.
  • 15 characters with unique skills and abilities.
  • Tons of quests, game events and plot twists.
  • Altered perception of reality: you cannot trust what you see.
