We’re opened for cooperative productions, distributors and all kind of people from business who want to be part of our network. ,,Studio don Quixote’’ is increasing production and we need more co-producers and distributors.
If you’re interested to invest or work with us please let us know. _____________________
Our budget depends on the government funds, investments and sponsors.
All other materials can be sent upon request. One of the future plans is to improve platform early access offers.
Ai system can be complicated. We wanted to keep it simple and add a little bit of population and gameplay options. There are few characters based on the previous movie.
Mice Humps level
Story driven game . In the game there are references to ,,Don Quixote’’ by Miguel de Cervantes. Some of inspirations come from the dark, muddy places but also from bright adventures such are those from ,,Quixote’’. What we would like to see in future developments of RH (Rest House) is some kind of open world.
C++ and UE4 as some of you know works great together.
One of implementations in the ,,RH’’ are right mouse button click where you’re able to click and read some stuff about the objects in the game. That system is procedural and interesting because developer is able to add text about items and objects trough Microsoft Excel file.
Less scary than C++ are Blue prints. It’s nice and easy to learn visual scripting program where you can make whatever you want.
We’re using it a lot. For all kind of game play, menus, interaction etc.
At the end of each level there are short movies witch are explaining the back story.
If he beat the game player can go to the secret link and watch the whole feature length movie.
– Rest House is interactive project witch is growing from inside.
You’re playing as the main character we can call him Mr. Gary for
Now. Voice that floating through the air is telling you what to do.
Main character meets friend from his childhood.
The story begins with the unnamed narrator arriving at the house of his friend, having received a letter from him in a distant part of the country complaining of an illness and asking for his help. As he arrives, the narrator notes a thin crack extending from the roof, down the front of the house and into the river.

Concepts for the cover page,
There are 4 levels that can be played in the browser, online. They’re platform independent. What is interesting that more then 10 000 players checked this versions in short period of time? Maybe this is because you can play instantly without need to download. Hope in the future browser web 3D games will be more optimized and powerful.
– Simple controls
-No Depth , no time-limit
Hope that this introduction is enough to catch your attention. We’re also hoping that you will try ‘’Rest House’’ because there are free version waiting for you.
