From Press Release:

The day is finally here! We are pleased to announce that DISTORTIONS – the acclaimed adventure game by Brazilian developer Among Giants .

Enter a realm where music, magic, and memories take on a whole new meaning. Watch the brand-new trailer below, and you’ll quickly see what Distortions has in store for Steam users.


After waking up in a strange, puzzling place where memories roam free like ghostly echoes, a young girl must use her musical gifts to find her way home. Beset with psychological pain, she will need to make peace with her past and learn to live in the moment in order to deal with unpleasant physical manifestations of days long gone. Equipped with her journal and violin – and guided by music – the girl must protect herself from the masked creatures that inhabit this land. In fact, they may have a deeper connection with her own memories …

In Distortions, you’ll experience a breathtakingly beautiful world filled with caves, mountains, and rivers. Can’t find your way?

With the aid of a strange masked monster, you must uncover new memories and eventually solve the mystery of the journal’s unknown author to overcome your past and open the door to a happier future.
