My game looks similar to Limbo and Ori but i promise the gameplay is completely different! This is not a platformer in a traditional sense, i want to make something really unique!

Thank you for playing and glad you enjoyed the game! You can click multiple times on interact-able items / NPC's. Also there is a secret in the opposite direction you went in the beginning of the demo. Cheers.
It was nice, i wish i could play through the colourful levels though.
Thanks for playing, I remember you from a long time ago. Hope you're doing good. This is only a "part" of Chapter 1, and as is there is not too much revealed in this demo, all chapters in the full game have unique mechanics etc. Anyway thanks for playing!
I'm good, I can't wait to see the other levels. I'll be playing your other game Perdita tomorrow.
Thanks! I should give you a little hint, the key to the dinner room in Perdita spawns on one of the dolls in the old house after you activate the music box. Also the fishing room key is located in the bathroom on the ground near the cracked wood! Hope this helps so you don't get stuck! Looking forward to your video! Cheers.
I had no idea what was going on, but it looked cool xD

Хорошая смысловая игра, очень понравилось.
Спасибо за старание :)
Thanks for playing glad you enjoyed my game and it's meaning. There will be multiple endings in the full game and you will have the ability to influence the story depending on your choices in the game.
I'm interested to see where the story will go. And hoping there will be more interactivity. :)

You can try download the game if you want again, since the version you played was a older one, i released a minor patch addressing all previous issues and added some more content and interactivity, furthermore all chapters in the game will introduce new unique mechanics. Thanks for checking out the game!
Hello there! Really nice game with a proper story behind it! loved it! Have you considered participating in our GDWC #gamedev contest ? Check out our itch.io page for more info :)
HEY!! This is one of the best game I've played in itch io. Awsome graphics as you promised theres is actually a atmospheric feeling to the game. I also made a video which is being uploaded now. I've been hoping for games like this since it also means a lot for my personality too. Thanks for developing this games. And i am hoping to buy the full ver when it get released. I assure you this game will be a success. This game also has a meaning (Kind off like a rich story based on sadness I think)which the current game industry has lost.
I am really glad you enjoyed the demo and you think so highly of my game! It is indeed a very personal project to me, and the game-play and stuff is unlike any other, i also intended to make it a game that touches people's heart and helps people. Thanks I certainly hope the game will be a success so far i have spent 2 years developing the game and i am 80% done. The game is very story rich, and there will be multiple endings in the full game depending on what choices the player makes and you will even have the ability to play other characters and experience different parts of the story from their point of view!
I hope you will add the full game to your wish-list on Steam! Thanks for playing! https://store.steampowered.com/app/880700/Deep_Rest
Really cool. Lots of neat stuff going on in this demo. Great sound work to go along with the awesome graphics.
Thanks for playing and thank you for your feedback! All feedback matters to me! I have just released a patch addressing all minor bugs and fixed these including adding some more stuff in the demo. Cheers!
I really liked this game. I loved the style and the look of the whole game. I talked about some things in my gameplay throughout the video concerning the text in the game and some of the effects that could be improved as well as what i thought about the whole game. Overall though I did like it and look forward to when the full game comes out.
I'm really glad you enjoyed the game and i enjoyed your play through! Thank you for your feedback, I will take this with me as i continue development and i really appreciate all feedback. You can change graphic quality when starting the game and on the small settings wheel in the main menu by the way, I've also added a skip all cut scenes button. The game can be added to wish-list here:
I really like the art style of the game and how you tell the story. I wish instead of having to click on the crow, if we click anywhere, we could continue the cut-scene. Alternatively, a skip the cutscene would be a nice addition to the game as well. I look forward to the full release.

Thanks I'm glad you enjoyed the game! This is only a part of Chapter 1 by the way, not the full chapter. The storytelling is a mixture of direct and also hidden and secret cryptic stuff and much more. I will add a skip all cut scenes button in the beginning ASAP! *Skip all cut scenes button now added* Thanks for your feedback and I'm glad you look forward to the full release! You can add the game to your wish-list on Steam here: https://store.steampowered.com/app/880700/Deep_Rest/
Beautiful, I would like to see more of it!
It would be nice if you could increase a little bit the speed of the character, and a button to skip all the cutscenes in addition to the "crow button".
I wish you courage for your dev!
The sound effect when you go to the left was very creepy :p
Did you mean to drop a video link? Would love to see your play through. Anyway thanks for playing, and glad you enjoyed the game, thanks for the feedback as well! You can add game to your wish-list on Steam here! Cheers! https://store.steampowered.com/app/880700/Deep_Rest/
phew, the scrolling through the chapters is VERY clunky ^^
and it looks like i can play five of them? Oo pls clarify me XD or is the black and white just the style of the level? XD so i just can click chapter one, i guess..i'll try ^^
but the scrolling... :P
okies...the music and atmosphere is awesome! and u got me good with the goatface XD
i guess the limbo-like-style is for good reason ;) i really like those type of games, where u can overthink some things in ur life, no matter if u have depression or not...these type of games r the golden ones <3
just the flickering shouldn't be SO present, it could cause some motion sickness for one or another ^^
and well...the scrolling... XD
i'm very curious to see the full game and till then...good progress and take care ;)
Thanks for the comment. It is very responsive and shouldn't be clunky at all in the chapter selection screen. You only need to hover over Chapter 1 in the chapter selection screen and then click on QUCKPLAY>, this demo only contains a part of Chapter 1, the rest is only available in the full version. Cheers, i hope you enjoy the game and look forward to your playthrough! *EDIT* added a description now in the top* Thank you for feedback.
Thank you, you can learn more about the the game and add to your wish-list on Steam here:
Yes the game is very atmospheric and thought provoking, each chapter will also bring unique mechanics. It has been compared to Ori and Limbo before look wise. But i promise Gameplay wise, my game is nothing like any of those games. Anyway thanks for playing and have a nice day! :)
thanks for the quick response :D i already added it to my steam wishlist ;)
but is it called deep rest or deadwood? cuz it's not that obvious ^^
have a nice one 2 ;)
Awesome! It is called "Deep Rest" indeed.
Deadwood is the place inside the game that the different worlds revolve around! Cheers and thank you once again :)
I've released a patch and re uploaded the game, all minor bugs, including the menu one you mentioned has been fixed, and some new content has been added as well. Check it out if you want
