Of all the things video games are ideally suited for, horror is almost assuredly up near the top. The combination of interactivity with immersive aesthetics both visual and aural means that the medium is uniquely capable of creating and maintaining the kind of atmosphere horror relies on to an outstanding level. Small games can have a powerful impact and we've seen this before many times. Distraint is a small title from Jesse Makkonen, developer of Silence of the Sleep, which is scheduled for release on Halloween. Makkonen has just launched a Greenlight campaign to get the game on Steam in time for its planned release.
