RedCandleGames’ Detention ($4.99) is one of the rare horror games I keep getting recommended when I look for interesting smaller budget horror experiences that have great music. My favourite of the smaller tier horror games are still Yomawari and Corpse Party. Detention did really well when it launched on Steam a few years ago and it arrived on consoles including Nintendo Switch recently. Today, RedCandleGames announced and released Detention for iOS and Android. Watch the trailer for it below:
Detention is set in a fictitious Taiwan in the 1960s and features various East Asian elements in its visuals and storytelling. The core gameplay is 2D side scrolling with point and click adventure style puzzles. If you’re interested in checking it out, Detention is available on the App Store for iOS and Google Play for Android. It is available at a limited time discount until September 20th for $3.99 before it goes up to $4.99. Have you played Detention on PC or Switch?
