DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE ANDROID AND PC VERSIONS

In order to make the Android port as playable as possible I needed to make some small changes to the game.

In PC version you have a lantern, but porting this over to Android brought too many problems. I decided to leave the lantern out from the Android version and instead expand the environmental lighting. While doing so I also added more color which makes the Android port more pretty to look at.

To have as smooth experience as possible I capped the Android version to 30 frames per second. However, DISTRAINT has a very little motion so this is barely even noticeable.

I'm having the same issue as a few others. At the very beginning after getting the key and unlocking the door, I enter the door, but the screen is just black. The controls are still there but nothing happens. If I close the game and reopen, it is just a black screen and nothing else. Can't even play. Boo. Edit - I reinstalled and gave it access to external storage and that fixed the issue! Now I can play! Seems super cool so far!

I loved this game! It is a lot of fun, challenging at times, doesn't take up too much space, and was a very immersive experience. I was hooked! any time I got a little free time I'd play. I'll definiteky be downloading the second one ! it's hard for me to find good games, I won't forget this one any time soon. I also love the controls and the fact that it really does seem the creator thought of everything as far as different objects, possible player choices/actions, and responses ! Extremely good

Best game app I've played! An actual story. Took 3 sit downs to play. The ads aren't annoying and popping up every 3 minutes. Felt like a short commercial break and did not impede on any of the play! I should have supported in Steam. The mood, design, story, sound, character development, and puzzles all 5 stars! It could really get you at moments when something DISTURBING was happening. 10/10 would recommend.
