It was initially released on September 20, 2009 in Japan, and on October 15 in Europe and North America, it is the second demo released on the PlayStation 3 after Linger in Shadows.

.detuned features a man sitting in a chair surrounded by a psychedelic environment.

The player is also able to load their own music in.
