Hey there, thanks for your feedback! English is indeed not my first language. I've noticed the mistake and corrected it.
I understand, and i take no offense, i believe all constructive criticism will only help shape the game, and make it even better.
I was aware of the mostly grammatical errors before and thought i had fixed them all for this build.
I will make sure to do extended formatting through the whole game before release, i know a great translator that can help me during development.
Again, thank you! and i appreciate your honesty.
Thank you very much, i will!
Odd, haven't tested this on win10 since i use win 8.1 - Use left mouse button in menu and click start game, once you get to the intro with text being typed, click the crow below in the right corner. Let me know if that helps. I'll try update demo with a better tutorial, thanks!
pause menu works with mouse in main menu and WASD / ENTER to select in game.
Here you can change graphical settings to increase performance depending on your machine.
Performance patch coming soon.
Silent Manor Chapter 2 Final installment will be out later tonight! Expect bugs still, and not the best performance, depending on your machine. i am a solo dev with limited resources and time. But i made this game for fun, nothing else and it will remain free. I hope you all will enjoy it anyway! I may or may not update the game again after this! Cheers!
I've replaced the old version of the demo now, the patched version contains some new NPCs, secrets and minor bugfixes/balancing. Thank you to everyone playing the game! Your feedback matters! Cheers!
Thank you, i've recently build the entire game and i am currently doing a lot of polish etc, a patch will be released for the demo adressing some minor bugs. Thank you for your support! :)
Hey, you are free to upload lets play of this demo on youtube monetized or not, my only condition is that you leave a link for the demo (http://www.indiedb.com/games/deep-rest/downloads/deep-rest-chapter-1-the-awakening-official-demo)and my official site www.azagamestudio.com if youd be so kind!
Thank you! Just wait until Chapter 2 releases!
Thanks for playing, i left a comment on your video! Cheers!
Thanks, the lightning in this build was not baked correctly so that might be why. Also our main character james is now bald, since he got he's head shaven by the killer in the cutscene. Still work in progress, a better trailer will come out
Glad you like the new design, going for that evil within mixed with silent hill vibe!
Alright your opinion. i can increase jumping height or movement speed to counter this, besides i'm using reverse time alot in video's hence why character shift position's ( not included in demo ), anyway thanks for the feedback.
Alright, thought you were a dev or something. There is a clue / tip about it in the controls, but i could have made a more clear tutorial, but it is there right when you get in the game to the left. I'll be sure to have better tutorials for mechanics, thanks for feedback
What kind of experience? You should read the controls again and play again, if you cant figure out how to interact with objects i can help
In fact, every chapter will bring new mechanics to the game!
Wow, I think you are judging too quick, you can interact with many things with your mouse and find secrets, try going left in the beginning. Look at your mouse cursors orb change colour. To call this a walking sim is just stupid, you need to understand the game in order to play properly. There wont be another demo, only full ver.
Thank you very much!
You can hold shift to walk slowly & the light will bounce less, but i will look into it, thanks for the feedback! :)
Thank you, i will do a new article soon!
Thank you - new screenshots added now!
This is the prelude to the manor added in the new demo v1.1, Evergreen Forest is a huge open world map, with many secret's, and many objects to interact with, aswell as 4 new enemy types ;) Thank you! Will post more soon!
Oh i forgot ingame, the mouse cursor is a purple orb, this orb changes to green orb when hovering over diamonds, and turns to golden when mouse cursor is hovering over other interactable objects this way you know, which one's can be interacted with.
Hit esc to close pause menu popping up when main menu start's, sorry for this minor bug, will be fixed! Else i enjoyed your playthrough, only thing is you're supposed to use the mouse and left click on interactable object's such as Signs etc. in the enviroment, you can also draw spirit energy as you drag and move the mouse while holding left mouse button! Cheers!
Thank you for playing!
Thank you, i will do more updates on story as i move further in development.
Thanks appreciate it, Some items is indeed still placeholders, but the gui fades to smaller black transparent squares when you hover your mouse over item slots. Thanks for the feedback!
The demo will soon be available for download! Have fun!
Thank you, i might do a update soon just pretty busy with my other games. What would you like to see, crafting protective nests? controlling flying pterodactyl? Need to set up more controllers and make selection screen :)
The silent hill universe as a whole is a big inspiration for the game :)
