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.

And now I'm in need of severe therapy.

I played this game using the walkthrough (I'm not very good at games) and I saw both endings. I thought to myself, "Wow, that was a really good game, especially for flash, and especially for a first try. Hm. Off to bed!"

I couldn't get a wink of sleep, and I had to walk to work alone at three in the morning. I was sweating bullets all the way there. Hope you're happy!!! haha.

Honestly, graphics were pretty decent, gameplay was interesting, but the thing that really got me was the audio. MAJOR kudos to you for having the vision to focus your energies on making the sounds scary.

And yes, I want to see more from you. Gold star for Ben. ^_~

Devilishly Clever!

Ok...for those of you who've played games like "Death Tower" for Playstation. Or "Eternal Darkness" for Gamecube, this flash game should be neither too scary, nor too difficult for you. This is an excellent game. Only Complaint I have about it is I think it could have been a little longer. But, Alas, with all the possitive reviews you're getting for this game. I'm sure you're going to jump right on top of making an even longer, and perhaps even scarier game for your next submission. The suspense level on this game was really the key element. I mean, with the eerie sound effects, and the never-ending display of bloodstains. Shit, I was half expecting something to jump out at me with every turn of a corner I made, but the fact that something "DIDN'T" jump out on every turn just added to the suspense, and made the game even better. This is a definate masterpiece. I for one will be nominating this flash game for the "NG" Hall of Fame.
