EXMORTIS - THE STORY SO FAR:
You wake up in the woods with no memory of how you got there. Nightmares of blood and screams still echo through your mind. It's late and it's cold - unless you can find shelter fast, you won't last the night. You spot a house in a clearing up ahead and left with no choice - you decide to shelter there for the night. Soon afteryou begin to realise that death is a welcome choice compared to what lies waiting for you inside...

Revision V1.1 - Changes were made to actionscript for the triggering of the cellardoor. Explanation below may include game spoilers!

*** SPOILERS ***

I have altered the actionscript for triggering the cellar door. You must trigger the first 4 symbol closeups, read all 3 books and interact with Gwen to access the cellar door. I have obtained the above conditions in every possible sequence after testing last night and I am yet to fail to access the cellar door with this revision. Hopefully this will fix the "bug" a lot of people are mentioning in reviews.

This is my first Flash game, having only taught myself flash only a year ago. I wanted to create an atmospheric game with decent graphics as I have played so many flash games that kick ass with puzzles, but never pay attention to graphics and atmosphere. Unfortunately it was a situation where I had to make up the story as I went along creating it - so bits and pieces are kind of patched together here and there. If I had the time or the energy, I'd do a few things differently to improve interaction in the game - but I think that in its current form it achieves what I set out to do. Scare the living hell out of everyone. So play this in a dark room with the sound turned up for maximum scare-factor!

Note - the loading might take a while on slower machines - sorry about that, but the quality of the sounds involved were important to me. I only sacrificed the minimum amount of quality that would get the size down under the 5mb limit.

For those of you who just want a quick and easy game, I have posted a walkthrough... I have seen mirrors of it though, so maybe try googling "Exmortis Walkthrough"

Enjoy!
Ben.

Ahhh...the old memories came back as I played this game. This is one of the very first flash games that I ever played, and it introduced me to the "horror" genre of flash games.

The tone for the game is really grim and mysterious. A balance between quiet mystery-involved exploration and brutal violence presented throughout the game is pretty matched. Also, the puzzle solutions were seen all through each scenes of the game! As I continued my search to find the clues, the visual symbols and (in-game) books helped me a lot.

However, the slow translation from one place to another (like if I have to leave the one room to another room) was a bit clutchy. Moreover, there might be a script bug in the game that forces the players to click the clues in the RIGHT order as the game has intended them to. Otherwise, they might have a little problem at proceeding the game (For a primary example, I had a hard time getting to the basement room).

Nevertheless, a great horror game! I loved the story and settings behind the game, as it continued to the second one.
