Restless Dreams (alt. name: Project Gray) is an indie Lovecraftian J-RPG with strong survival horror elements currently in development. Gameplay wise, it is inspired by Silent Hill and the classic Resident Evil.

"You’re no Messiah, Renn. Why bother saving humanity? Are they worth saving? Is it even your own will?"


It is set six years after the event of Nightmare of the Snow. Despite so, you can still play the game without having to complete Nightmare of the Snow beforehand.



Plot:
Renn Kiriyama is an unsociable, 22 years old upcoming fighter and university student with a dark past. One night, he has a dream where he wakes up in a dark sewer inhabited by grotesque creatures. As he succeeded in escaping the sewer, he meets up with his loved one, Haruka Kurashina. She tells him that the world has ended and he has to save the world, no matter what. And with that, his first nightmare ends.

Be sure to check the game's tumblr page for more infos :D

Important Announcement

Recently something has crossed my mind while review the chapters of Restless Dreams. “Is this what I want it to be?” With that, I may or may not decide whether to rewrite the entire main story mode (Renn’s story) into one of the early concepts or not.

The early concepts for Restless Dreams are that it is going to be a Psychological Horror mixed with Lovecraftian elements (not the horror genre of Lovecraftian) mixed with classic Survival Horror gameplay. These concepts was scrapped because I didn’t want the game to be short and look similar to the games that were released at the time I planned the concepts.

Combat is still prominent in the early concepts. Hunger-thirst system along with . There are only 4 ~ 6 chapters as opposed to the planned 8 chapters of the current version. There’ll be no difficulty setting as the game’s even more story-focused and combats are definitely less challenging while also providing as obstacles.

Basically the major changes are Renn’s character and the story mode, which will be entirely rewritten while Ryuu and Kayako’s story mode remain untouched. It’ll be gloomier, more serious to the point where there’s barely any joke at all and most importantly, the story is told in an even more first-person-ish style than the current one.

But of course, I’m not gonna make this decision in a short time. It just happened to cross my mind and made me rather worried since the current RD is completely different than what I want it to be.

2019 release date? really? You are not developing a gta v. You takes seriously almost four years to create an RPG maker game? How often you progress on your project? Every six months?.

The wait will be made eternal, almost glacial XD

Dude, the game may be done earlier than the predicted date if I don't have any problem with my university life.

Besides, my previous project took me 2.5 years to complete. This project is larger than the previous one. So please understand :D

This page ain't a ninja, brother. Can you teach ninjutsu to this page? XD
I looked forward to this! You have done better than Nots, so I'm very proud!

Btw, I made a wiki already:http://restless-dreams.wikia.com/wiki/Restless_Dreams_Wikia

People have lives to live aside from making their games, and they often do most the work alone. There are people who have been working on the same game for ten years. Four years isn't too much to ask.

if but four years seems an exaggeration. I also do games and not take so long to finish them.

I study, work, go out with my friends and I have a youtube channel where I upload videos every day.

I finish more than 3 rpg maker games and took 6 months at most to finish it, not so many years.

I'm only given 2 hours to develop every weekend. My parent (my father, specifically) doesn't want me to develop games. Well, to put it simple, I have a restriction on developing games.

Anddd...I think you didn't read my reply up there. Even though I set the target completion date on April 23rd 2019, the game may be completed 1 or 2 years earlier :D

I agree with unity-san : every people has their own circumstances, so you can't just compare yourself and others, stiven202-san (^_^);

Beside, I think the author put that date based on his assumption, IF things don't work well on his side. It's just calculating based on the worst case scenario. From the previous project, I am more than know that he's really dedicated with his work. NoTS is a great game, and I believe this one can be great too, if not greater :)

Looking forward for the next chapter, Tsurugi-san!

Oh well I'm literally infront of my computer for 24 hours :P (I go to sleep at around 5 A.M and somehow still wake up early), so I do have a lot of time to develop. Parents can really suck, especially when they do not allow you to chase your dreams. I know, I told them I wanted to become a unicorn but they didn't allow me -_- Well, wish you luck with the game than!
I finished the demo of your game and I thought it was pretty good but I wish
it was a bit longer.

It was only a gameplay-showcasing demo. The longer will probably be out this winter ;)
This was pretty fun even though it was a demo. Keep improving the game and I'll lend assistance if you want. =)
This game seems pretty cool! Cant wait for it to be finished :D

hey, thanks for your support :D
Are you interested in having someone else make music for this game? I'm a sound designer/music producer with past experience.
I made the music and effects for 'Robototics' which became a featured game in appstore.

I'd like to, however, this is no-budget project (aside from the RMVXA and the resource packs) which means that I can't give you anything other than credits...
I've noticed that the grammar in the NOTS was criticized by let's players.
I will gladly check the grammar of your game for free.
Are you at all interested? :l
Also your sequel in the development page...please fix the link! xD
