About Detention

Set in a fictitious world in the 1960s Taiwan under martial law, Detention, the story-driven, atmospheric horror, incorporates East Asian elements rarely used in games. Taoism, Buddhism, Chinese mythology: the game draws on local Taiwanese cultural references to tell an unique and terrifying story.

In this 2D atmospheric horror side-scroller, players navigate the main characters in a classic point and click fashion to explore a high school where evil encroaches. While hiding from the rampaging monsters, you must find items to interact with in the otherworldly rooms. And as more mysteries are unveiled, the dark past of a cursed school will finally surface.
