After 3 long years of sleepless nights and near fatal set backs, Exmortis 3 has finally been released. I have put my heart and my soul in to this creation, so I hope more than anything that you enjoy this tale of revenge and salvation.
Over to you now, my friends...
oh boy a pay to play demo
not trying to come off as an asshole here
people have better things to spend their money on than a flashgame, i am one disappointed seaotter MR. leffler. what happened to you? if flash has evolved then why is the mouse cursor still slower than a 7year old with autism? why does it still look like it has free flash game quality? if you were in need of money you should invest in a job(im just sayin)
if you are going to make people pay for a game then you should be pumping out game CDs and develop it like a real game(like what they did with alien hominid)
ill give it a 3 because the first two games were good, but this is just a disappointment
I guess the "free flash game quality" of Exmortis 3 is a matter of opinion, really. Without coming across as self-adulant or arrogant, I like to think that the quality of the work I produced on Exmortis 3 is somewhat better than that of the average "free flash game". If I was not of that opinion, I wouldn't be here defending my work regularly like this.
And the slow mouse cursor thing is indicative of a lower spec system (admittedly, certain effects and scenes within this game were coded in a way that would push lower spec machines to breaking point)
I am a little guilty of trying to do too much in many ways and that on the odd occasion causes lagging if you are running a slow machine/an older version of Flash or if you have more than a few browser windows open and using flash.
I do suggest maybe checking out the download version of the game on Fizzy.com if these problems persist - as that version works perfectly on most systems.
" if you were in need of money you should invest in a job " -- I'm pretty sure that is exactly what I did. 3RD Sense hired me to make this game and other games... so yep - investing in a job is exactly what I did.
" if you are going to make people pay for a game then you should be pumping out game CDs and develop it like a real game(like what they did with alien hominid) " -- Just because the game doesn't come in a box does not mean it isn't a "real game". We've invested in an alternative distribution model, and a successful model at that. So I guess the sales figures speak for themselves.
I'm sorry you are disappointed, however - ONCE AGAIN - it seems that the main issue being taken is with the pay-2-play idea, which I've resigned to the majority of people on Newgrounds never really understanding. Let's agree to disagree, shall we? :)
Cheers for the feedback,
Not that bad!
Honestly, though the first 2 were better, this one was still pretty good.
No way close to Exmortis 2, but i'm satisfied.
Some people hate the whole "Pay To Play" thing, but I say good for you!
If you keep this up, I can see a full-fledged Exmortis PC game in your future, my friend.
When I first played Exmortis 1 and 2 I loved them and wanted to see this one made. I followed the blog over its creation for a long time my face was all like :D every time I saw a new screenshot. In any case the game was ok, it had a few puzzles and stuff (the magic powers was rather random) but it still wasn't as good compared to the older ones.
Also, I was a sad panda when it got to release day and realised I was playing a "demo".
i guess its a matter of opinon...
To be honest i thought the demo was okay but as VigalanteKiller stated it just didnt have that creepy atmosphere and it just didnt have that Exmortis feel to it that the other games had it the whole power and ability concept is what helped kill it (at least for me) the old style i liked more because it kept me more interested and made me want to continue playing to see it through it gave the feeling like i was there in a manner of speaking. It just didnt work but I do give you props for trying something different but i feel like this wasn't the best way to go at it. but as i said i guess its a matter of opinion.
Another issue even though this has been addressed many times both crudely and constructively so im not going to drone on it for very long (if i can help it) is the pay for the full game. That to me is also what hammered the final nail. Im not saying that you dont deserve anything for your work but paying for a flash game just dosent feel like a wise investment to me and i suppose if i liked it i would still feel the same way. But regardless i do wish you luck with any future projects you may want to undertake and i hope to see more of your work in the future :)
P.S. if my review sounds demeaning or abusive i do give my most sincere apology for that tone was not intentional
Cheers for the feedback. No demeaning or abusive tone received - so you have nothing to worry about :)
Just to address the whole "pay for a flash game" thing. I was at first sceptical around the concept, however the availability of desktop packagers for Flash (such as Adobe AIR and MDM Zinc) has allowed the practise to become more and more common as Flash becomes more than just a plugin for a web browser.
You may think that your exposure to Flash is limited to your browser, but I can tell you that there are many other platforms that use it without you even realising that the content before you is driven from a Flash codebase.
Many Iphone and Android games are now using Air packaged Flash VRMs, as are commonly used desktop applications. Flash is used widely in the mainstream & indy game development world as a prototyping tool. Popular console and PC games frequently use it to perform both UI and intrinsic game functions. Next gen televisions are starting to come packaged with AIR based flash for content delivery & interaction.
My point being that it seems that most people that have asked the question "why should I pay for Flash content when everything up until now has been free?" - they don't realise that the platform has evolved past its traditional use... and in many cases, so has the content.
Now I'm not saying that content should no longer be free - what I am saying is that it costs a lot of time and money to deliver quality.
If a developer feels that they need more than a decent score and a pat on the back to give you the result of their hard work, then so be it. You don't have to like it - in fact, I am sure the majority of you won't... but rest assured - it will continue to happen, and like it or not - it's something people are going to have to eventually get used to.
Man, I just gotta say. -.-...
I just loved Exmortis 1 and 2 so very, very, much.
I played them when they first came out years and years ago.
I thought they were the absolute shit when it came down to Horror Flash games.
I honestly never thought a 3 would be made.
Then one day, out of the blue, and total boredum, I come back onto Newgrounds, after 3 long years, and I see a beautiful, gorgeous, looking thing... 'Exmortis 3', and as I stare at it, I am takin back to a creepy, (but awesome) time, playing the original two.
So I click on it, ready to get down to the knitty gritties, and dedicate the next hour or so to the conclusion, only to be greeted by BUM BUM BUM!!!!... the true horror. PAY TO PLAY!!!! BUUUMM BUUUMMM BUUUUUMMMMMMMM
So I read the comments, and think, 'If 80 percent of these people are wrong, then this game could still kick a whole bunch of ass. I will give the demo a try anyway.'
Well, I was wrong. Demo, really didn't portray the original two in barely any ways at all... It just wasn't Exmortis as I remember it at all. It's like you tried to do something new, that wasn't Exmortis, and went against what the fans liked. You just stuck the Exmortis theme into the background and rolled with it...
It really dissapoints me... A lot... I wont be demeaning or a douchebag towards you, cuz I know it's not fair, but as a true fan, from when Exmortis first reared it's creepily awesome head, I think you blew the series. Hard...
And I would really rather not hear that whole "Well, if you had just bought the whole game, you would have seen the rest of it." because the thing is, after people play the demo, and see how that is, NO BODY is going to want to play the full game, let alone download it.
Sorry man, just no good...
That's actually a fair call that you've made. I've never looked at it like that, but your logic makes a lot of sense.
Unfortunately the way that I wrote the storyline for this game, didn't lend itself to me starting with a claustrophobic "what's around the next corner" style that I used for 1 and 2. But in hindsight that would have been a smart thing to do.
What I can say however is that the second and third chapters in Exmortis 3 return you back to the vibe of the original 2 games. Also, the full version isn't just available as download. It can also be played online in a browser at Fizzy.com.
Cheers for the feedback. It's nice to occasionally get an actual criticism that is relevant and that I can learn from.
