About me

I am a programmer, artist and it-support tech guy, but most of all im a indie game developer.
It is my passion and the one thing i truly want to do, i have been working on my games for 4+ years.
I have learned a lot through the process, and i generally work alone.
I have some connection's, and i outsource some of my workload, in order to be able to produce a better game faster.
I have a official web page but i generally update most on indiedb, if you wanna follow my work.
The game has not finished development yet, but it is scheduled to be released as full version around Q1-Q2 2017
I promise to deliver a unique terrifying game & have high hopes for Deep Rest!

Thank you for your support & vote!

In your opinion, describe to me what makes a compelling deep story, that touches your emotions and lingers on long after you complete the game?

I'm working my hardest to finish the demo now, and i have fixed all current bugs! The demo is coming soon. Thank you for your patience!

I've been without internet for the past 3 weeks, so there is a delay on the demo.
None the less the demo is still coming soon :)

The demo will contain the first chapter of the game and will be released August 31 for PC/MAC.
I've recently uploaded some new screenshots, added pause menu and soon controller support.
Development is all good.
Thank you reaching out & checking the game out, cheers!

This looks amazing, and the story seems very interesting. Am looking forward to it.

@ =DRK= Goji Pone Alright sir your opinion, now please understand my gameplay is completely different and is story based not puzzle based, also the main character is in no way related to the boy in Limbo and looks completely different. Thanks for the concern, i am aware, but don't see this becoming an issue, else i will deal with playdead myself. I'm a big fan of the game and i also have many other games for inspiration on Deep Rest, not just their game!

Kind of looks like a straight up LIMBO clone instead of an inspired product. The animations are very stiff and odd looking, and do be careful of a possible copyright infringement from Playdead.
