Based on movie «The Thing» by John Howard Carpenter

They were on a routine rescue mission when a helicopter crash left them stranded near an abandoned Arctic base. As the survivors try to find a way back, they begin to experience strange symptoms: the longer they stay awake, the more twisted their perceptions of reality become. Then they learn the real nightmare begins when they fall asleep...

Help the survivors escape the abandoned base. Strike a balance between exhaustion and falling into a sleep from which the explorers may never awake.

Be aware of how each character is perceiving reality. Swap between survivors to observe, compare and analyze.

Decide what's real, even as you understand you can no longer trust your senses. Remember: what you see is no longer what you get!

Game Description

They were on a routine rescue mission when a helicopter crash left the two survivors stranded near an abandoned Arctic base. To find a way back, they must explore the base, moving from sector to sector, fighting the severe cold and searching for food and equipment.

There's something else, out there. Something that should not exist. It, which enters sleep and feeds on them. Stalking in the shadows, waiting for the survivors to lower their guard and drift into slumber.

Staying awake seems like a safe option, but the lack of sleep is exhausting and leads to hallucinations. Eventually, the survivors will close their eyes and fall prey to the unknown, terrifying force - unless you can somehow strike a balance between exhaustion and falling into a sleep from which one might never awake.

Key features:

Experience Distorted Reality

The longer the survivors stay awake, the more twisted their perceptions of reality will become. The manifestations of their madness can range from harmless sounds to dangerous hallucinations. Eventually, you won't be able to tell reality from twisted fantasy. To your advantage, you can swap between survivors to see their surroundings, to observe, compare and analyze, and to determine what is and is not real.

Randomly generated levels

The levels are randomly generated. Each time you start a new game, you'll encounter a new set of quests and tasks. Randomly appearing psychoses adds replay value to Distrust.

A variety of characters
