### NEWS ###: Read up on the development progress of Exmortis3 at exmortis3.blogspot.com

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.

A Truly Chilling Experiance

Very few games have the ability to really freak me out, but this one has creepy in spades. With meticulously detailed areas and lighting "Exmortis" excells by delivering his scares like the best horror directors do, with mood and intesity. The storyline may be the best in Flash gaming, rife with poetic prose and original twists that rises it above the average point and click horror game; so good in fact I think if he ever gets the chance to do so, the creator should do a fully realized 3-D version for a gaming platform. I actually jumped at a number of the scares in this one, putting it up there with some of my past horror favorites as "Silent Hill" and "Condemmed: Criminal Origins". My few complaints hinge on the action layout. The game allows for exploration, but only one pattern of the commands allowed access to the last part of the game, making me have to replay most of the game twice to get to the end. The creator claims to have fixed it but I still wound up running to a walkthrough to get the correct pattern. Still this is one of the best if not the best Flash game ever released. Kudo's to the whole team, they desurve it.

So Damn Exciting!

It was my wussy friend who first got me on this game because she was too scared to do it alone, she wouldn't have the volume on so each time I have played this I haven't heard anything because I don't know what will happen We played on it but we couldn't complete it, I went home that night and read what Ben had written, I became obsessed with the game and found it really easy and brilliantly fun! I play on this game all the time now! I never expected that the player would be the murderer, I found this game the best horror game I have played on! These games by Ben Leffler have to be the best! 10/10! Oh and at the end, Get out fast! Don't dawdle like I did the second time I played it! =D
