The upcoming sci-fi survival game, Distrust, is now in open beta with a free limited demo available on Steam, developer Alaware has announced.
A helicopter crash left a group of explorers stranded near an Arctic base. As they try to find a way back, all they are doing is sinking deeper into a nightmare scenario. When they sleep, they attract a terrifying force that sucks the life out of their bodies, but the longer they battle exhaustion and stay awake, the less likely they are to survive...
As the survivors try to sleep just enough to stave off fatigue without dying, they slowly go mad and eventually reach the point where they can no longer trust their senses. In time, they can't even tell the difference between reality and a hallucination. You must guide the survivors through a randomly generated Arctic base, overcome the severe climate and fight the unfathomable.
Distrust is not your usual survival game. In addition to scavenging for food and equipment in a randomly generated map, players will have tons of quests, game events and plot twists to keep them coming back for more. Adding an even deeper psychological layer, character mutations caused by a lack of sleep can range from seemingly harmless, such as a survivor giggling uncontrollably or quoting Shakespeare, to dangerous, where the survivor may see his partner as a monster and try to kill him.

- Randomly generated levels
- 15 characters with unique skills and abilities
- Tons of quests, game events and plot twists
- Altered perception of reality: you cannot trust what you see
