Welcome to "RESTING PLACE", a Survival Horror Game in Second Life, Sponsored and Produced by the Pulse, Nomine, Vapor, New Kadath & Sn@tch City  Sims, Planet Ash and Hez Scripts along with all our vendors. Happy Halloween! Don't skip this part. It's VERY IMPORTANT to read this in order to play the game.

QUICK LIST OF INSTRUCTIONS & TIPS:

2. YOU MUST HAVE A MESH ENABLED VIEWER TO PLAY SUCH AS THE OFFICIAL LL VIEWER OR FIRESTORM.
3.  YOU MUST WEAR THE HUD TO PLAY. IT WORKS AUTOMATICALLY. CLICKING THE "WAKE UP" BUTTON SENDS YOU BACK TO THE CLINIC.

8. EXPECT LAG & ADJUST YOUR VIEWER SETTINGS APPROPRIATELY. BE CONSIDERATE OF OTHERS. PLEASE DON'T SHOUT, CHEAT OR GIVE PUZZLE ANSWERS IN OPEN CHAT.
9. THE GAME IS NOT EASY OR SHORT. THE HUD WILL REMEMBER YOUR PROGRESS IF YOU NEED TO LEAVE & COME BACK.
10. HAVE FUN, TELL YOUR FRIENDS AND PLEASE VISIT OUR GENEROUS VENDORS' SHOPS AFTER THE GAME!

Now for the details... Resting Place was designed based on our love of Survival Horror Video Games and Classic Horror Films and is intended to scare the crap out of you. We hope you enjoy it, but there are some things that may help you enjoy it even more.

The build was designed for Darker & Night time Windlight Settings AND a Mesh Enabled Viewer. Please choose your favorite!

Please Turn your Master Volume at least 3/4 of the way up as there are many sounds you will want to hear and turn your Music Volume Down or off.

We have provided a GAME HUD to wear. This HUD IS NECESSARY to play and complete the game. Please wear it before leaving the Front Desk or you will not be able to play. You may need to adjust it a bit to fit the resolution of your screen.  If you need to leave and come back at any time, the hud will save your item progress and the "Wake Up" button will take you back to the clinic.

The Build is spread out over five sims and you will need to teleport between areas but it is worked into the game so treat it like you would a screen load, Just click Teleport when the map comes up to travel between the levels, but make sure you have checked everything in the area before you leave or you may miss valuable information, storyline or prizes.

Basic Gameplay:
Each clinic bed has an item on it or near it. Click this item to teleport (dream) to each level. You will need to collect a special item from each level and solve simple puzzles to advance. Some levels are short and some are longer, some have puzzles to solve and some don't. You can do the 10 levels in any order or come back to a level later. We tried to make the puzzles simple yet challenging. We found out that some players do better helping each other in groups and that is definitely encouraged but please don't cheat. It's really not as much fun if you do.

To Operate "Keypads", solve a number, picture or color puzzle, enter the keys (click items) in the correct sequence then hit Enter. If you wish to start again, click Reset. If there is a teleport exit, click the button that says TELEPORT on the map when it pops up. To use some teleports you may need to click to open the door, then click again to enter.

It is in your best interest and much cooler to read everything you find on the story of "RESTING PLACE". You are a new employee at the clinic and in order to move ahead you may need this information. Notes, pictures and objects will contain clues for puzzles as well as add storyline.

We ask that you PLEASE not give solutions to the puzzles in open chat or teleport people into the game. Everyone must start at the beginning to get their hud and instructions. Anyone found cheating or giving out puzzle answers will be banned from this and any future events so just DON'T DO IT!

Gifts from our generous sponsors & vendors are hidden throughout the build in medical bags & syringes. There are treats hidden all over so check everywhere. You don't want to miss those. (This however does not mean there are not fun things and gifts at the end!) AND we have a souvenir shop where you can purchase holiday themed items after you play!


WARNING:
We have done our best to use a minimum of textures and preloaded most of them to keep load times easy. There is GOING TO BE LAG. Please remove as much of your primmage and scripted stuff as possible to make things easier on others and yourself and turn down your draw distance to the minimum. Screaming out lag and being an ass during the game will make the experience less fun for everyone so PLEASE be considerate of other players.

This is NOT a hunt. This is a game with donated prizes hidden throughout. It is NOT meant to be run through quickly and could take over 2 hours of your time. If you don't understand these things, then this game is not for you and we can give you LMs of some hayrides and haunted houses with spinny alpha ghosts.

Please tell your friends about us and share the landmark and we would love if you visit the stores of all the vendors who donated prizes or even send them thanks. They were so generous to give to this event and have our gratitude.

Now, turn the lights down and the volume up and prepare yourselves for a trip into the psyche so deep you may never get out...Pack wisely.
