No Rest for the Wicked
A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
Inside a manor frozen in time, a vampire patiently waits for the right moment to rise again. The time has come, and it's up to you - his not so faithful servant - to help him make the spell that will bring humanity to an end.This is a point and click game. Use your mouse to control the character.
Left click: walk to, or perform action indicated by the cursor icon (take, talk, look, use)
Right click: look at hotspot
Inventory: left click to use, right click to look. Right click with a selected object will deselect it.
Note on video: the game will start full screen. You can change to windowed in the options. When you do, the window will be 960x540, but if you select free cursor you can resize it freely.
Note on text: the game will start with both voice and subtitles, and the text will auto-advance. If you wish the game to wait for your input to go on, you have to disable voice in the options selecting text only, wait for click.

Thanks ! It was a pleasant moment ! The graphics are great, the humor, the music too ! and the voice are amazing !! 10/10
What a charming game! Loved it!
There surely must be some rest for the wicked...
aaaah this was so Good! lol, the graphics, the voices, the jokes the puzzles!! Loved it :D poor Otto lol
This game is pure fun!
I loved the witty writing, the clever and rewarding puzzles and the excellent pixel art. The brilliant voice acting is the cherry on top. So good!
This was really fun! 😁 I'm ashamed to tell that I got stuck with the Otto puzzle longer than I expected, though 😅 But thankfully I ended up resolving it.
Thank you for this nice little game.
Peeerfect! There may not have been anything as shockingly funny as the nun from Where Wolf? but overall, I think it was an even funnier game. The servant was one of your most charming characters yet. Awesome puzzles. And the voice over was extra special this time ...yay! I can't recall if you usually force look before interactions, but I like that design. Well done.
Application won't open on my M1 Mac running Ventura. Just a dialog saying "The application “NR4TW” can’t be opened."
Ah yes, this is a known issue for Mac when running games built under Windows. You should change the permission flags on the executable, try to follow these instructions.
Open up a Terminal and navigate to your app folder:
This folder contains the actual executable file which Windows apparently didn’t make executable. With the following command you should be able to give execution permissions on the file
chmod +x "No Rest for the Wicked"
Very cool, that did the trick. Can't wait to try it.
I also had to go into "Privacy & Security" in my System Settings, scroll to the bottom, and allow the application to be opened anyway.
This is absolutely hilarious! Great pixel graphics, excellent puzzles and a brilliant voice-over to boot. I love the humor, too. Only got stuck once at the beginning of the Otto puzzle. It was clear what this was about, but it took me a moment to understand how to do it. Definitely my favourite puzzle from the game.
I had a lot of fun with it. The fact that this (very polished) game was developed in just two weeks for a jam makes it even more impressive.
Didn't expect another Guga release while waiting for TWoAF after the KS :) Love the style! And thank you for being the minority who supports Mac, that made me buy it.
Clever puzzles! Only the ventriloquism puzzle was challenging at the beginning. The humor, graphics and the voice acting is great! Well done!
Thoroughly enjoyable. Well done!
In particular, the puzzles were excellent. There was a good variety of them, and they all made perfect sense (in their LucasArts-y, cartoon logic way) and were well signposted.
The writing was also genuinely funny from the get-go, with just a few minor grammatical errors here and there.
Nice art and animation, and the music fit the setting well.
Decent voice acting, although some of the sound quality wasn’t the best.
Although it didn’t take long for me to realise on my own, it would’ve been nice to have been told that clicking on a hotspot for a second or third time would often result in a different action, and right-clicking always works as ‘look at’.
Overall, an easy recommendation. Great job! 😊
Carla is the best, she totally loves her career path..*laugh*. I can tell put a lot of work into this game (pixel art, puzzles, VO). Masterful job!
This game is GOOD and hilarious :D
Okay so the puzzles were really clever, well done. The game was also funny and the voice acting was good.
