Detention is a unique, atmospheric horror game heavily influenced by Taiwanese/East Asian culture, religious elements and mythology. Based on the 1960s Taiwan under martial law, in this 2D atmospheric horror side-scroller, the player controls characters who venture into the school beset by hostile supernatural events to uncover stories behind the haunted place.




At Greenwood High School, located in a remote mountainous area, two students found themselves trapped and vulnerable. The place they once knew has changed in unsettling ways, haunted by evil creatures. To escape, they must explore the mysterious campus filled with ominous objects and puzzles. How will they survive in this ever-threatening environment? Can they return to safety in one piece?

Set in a fictitious world in the 1960s Taiwan under martial law, 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 a unique and terrifying story.




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