In time, they can't even tell the difference between reality and a hallucination. Guide the survivors through a randomly generated Arctic base, overcome the severe climate and fight the unfathomable!

Distrust is a refreshingly unique take on a familiar horror setting, where both players and survivors alike are gradually worn down by a lack of respite, and victory is a hard-fought push to the finish line. Though it's not quite The Thing as billed, Distrust manages to carve out its own fascinating niche with a devious cycle of madness and decay.

Distrust is one of the best Indie games, with smart use of horror elements. Atmosphere completely matches with the game narrative and constant feeling of danger makes distrust an entertaining game. Still, I believe Distrust had more potential in itself, and could have been an amazing game. If gameplay were more detailed and had more depth. In the end, Distrust is a game that i recommend it to every gamers looking for a unique survival experience.

Distrust is an excellent survival game. It doesn't hurry you and it doesn't suddenly kills you. What it does it make you watch draining energy bar while your survivors scour for a cup of coffee. It makes you sit on the edge of your chair when your character is about to eat molded tv dinner. It's great, not for consoles though.
