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...
It's been out for a long time now, everyones kicked a fuss up about the pay to play thing, it's been done.
Kudos for making a 3rd and trying to profit from your craft. Not everyone can make games for fun and free. Even artists' gotta eat. :)
First off, let me say I have no qualms paying for indi games whatsoever. I wholeheartedly support the indi community of up and comers and have on many occasions bought games online.
However I did not buy this one, and I'll tell you why.
I just played 1 and 2 back to back for some nostalgic fun. Enjoying the morbid bloody story and all it's shit your pants jump scares. They both had the same feel and vibe that kept me on the edge of my seat wondering, no, fearing what was going to pop up next and do the oogie boogie to get my blood going.
Once those were finished I looked to see if there was a 3rd. And there was. This.
A quick glance made me raise a brow that it was a demo, the full came at a minimal cost.
Ok maybe worth a buy, payment usually means longer games, better quality games, etc. TO THE DEMOOOOO!!!
Forever loading... Ooo big file. Hopes are high. Read some comments below to pass the time, roll eyes at people complaining over having to pay. Meh. Hear sounds scroll up and get ready for what I hope is a good demo to make me reach for my wallet and grab a credit card to buy the game...
Unfortunately what I got was... (to me) Not 'Exmortis'.. The visuals yes were much the same, granted of a better quality and higher resolution, so it was nicer to look at... But after fudging around for some minutes and click click clicking through the tutorial bit the desired sense of fear and horror of the previous games had completely drained for me.
I wasn't scared, my pulse was normal, and I became rather indifferent to it.
I poked around for a while in hopes things would pick up, there'd be a jump scare to make me recoil and yelp, or a creepy sound to make my skin crawl.
It didn't come. I was disappointed. Other than the name and some visuals/design elements this didn't seam like an Exmortis game at all.
Originally i gave up playing the demo half way through. Which to me is sad because the other two games while maybe not as 'pretty' as this drew me in instantly and kept me clicking for more. The sense of vulnerability and closed spaces gave the previous games a certain feel this one seams to lack (from what i saw) I was hopeful upon entering some buildings, but was left wanting. Eventually I returned to finish the demo, giving it another chance... It still didn't do it for me :(
I wasn't a fan of the 'movement' arrows in this one, I know why they are as they are because of more movement directions and such, but i did find myself clicking in circles time to time. But it is what it is, and Im sure with more play time one would get used to it. The UI was slightly clunky but visually appealing.
Unfortunately, going by the demo - I find myself uninterested to play more and thus will not be purchasing the full version. The writing/story of the previous games were good, and Im mostly sure theres a good story in this game too, but without unlimited funds to spend on games I'd rather buy a game I know i'm going to enjoy throughly than one I already didn't really enjoy from the demo. The game just seams far too different from the previous two for me to want to play.
Looks nice, sounds nice though :D
I know it's years later, but I thought maybe some honest review/criticism would be appreciated amongst all the PTP ZOMG U BETRAY US WHY $$$$?? bs.
Cheers! Keep making great work!
I gave you a Zero all around because I really didn't even like the first 2, and now you're charging to play the third, and on top of that, the free version I have to sit through a download, their are at least a hundred other FREE flash games on this site I can think of that are 100 times better than this that could charge people to experience it, but they work hard and as long as people enjoy it and spread the word, thats all that matters to them, this is BS man, and this genre sucks, you're outta your mind.
I was really looking forward to playing this game, I even made cookies and got mik and I was all "Yey, I'm gonna have a cozy time playing some free and scary games :D" but guess not. I'll give you 1 star for trying.
As an artist I understand that charging money for your hard work is completely fine, but charging 20 bucks for a Flash game is a bit too much. I love how much work was put into it, and it's VERY VERY VERY well made, but lowering the price to a single digit number wouldn't be a bad idea.
