While a unique and wonderful experience, the extremely short length of the game, and little replay value make it hard to recommend to everyone. But as the game has a free demo available on Steam, anyone even remotely interested should try it as soon as they have a free few minutes.
All in all, Distrust is a fun, engaging, satisfying game, as long as it’s played in short bursts; and the amount of characters for you to choose from allows for decent replay value, with many interesting strategies and combinations. Though, without much challenge outside of RNG, and without the amazing monster designs of the film from which it’s based, it can hard to recommend, unless you’re a true fan of the genre. It took a lot from John Carpenter’s The Thing, bringing all the best aspects of the horror classic into its style and atmosphere, but could have stood to take a bit more, at least to shore up its shockingly lackluster enemy design, and uninteresting plot twist.
