Amazing!

Hi Ben,

The quality of your games never ceases to improve. This third installment of the EM series makes no exception. It feels very professional. The sounds are amazing and they match the exceptional artwork. I can't emphasize enough how I am amazed by the quality of the game.

The interface is polished and intuitive. There is a lot of attention to details so that every element blends in. One particular example is the button to close the 3rd sense video: it is a "x" in a circle, all animated and it feels like fire. It is reminiscent of an occult symbol. Nice one.

The only small negative point is the navigation, which could have been a bit clearer. Sometimes there is a red arrow indicating that we can progress in that direction... sometimes, there is nothing to indicate that we can move forward or examine closer an object of interest. I think the furnace is one example of a location that is not highlighted by any sort of visual hint. So I personally feared that I had missed something. As I said, no big deal though...

As a "point-and-click adventure game" developer myself, I just can't imagine the amount of work and sleepless nights devoted to the making of this game. It is quite an achievement. I am impressed and respect you a lot for your work, not just this episode, but this whole journey that started what? 5 or 6 years ago...

In view of the quality of the game and all the efforts involved, I understand that you try to go commercial and I wish you the best of luck. This whole monetary problem prevented me from making more games and forced me to publish games of lower quality than what I was aiming for. I see that you didn't make that compromise and always delivered high-quality games.

I also juggled with the idea of demo vs full games, freeware vs donationware vs commercial. etc. without being able to make my mind about these issues. I've rapidly read the comments from the previous reviewers and I think that there is a lot of truth in some of them. Newgrounds and your previous fanbase were instrumental in the previous ExMortis's success. They brought exposure to a dedicated community that freely advertised your games via word of mouth. But do you really owe your fans something? Do you owe them more free games because the first two were successful? I don't think so. You provided them with two free games that you develop yourself at the expense of your personal life/leisure time. If you choose another path and to explore the pay-to-play avenue it is ok and you are entitled to. ExMortis is your creation. It doesn't belong to the fans who should be grateful for the first two episodes, that's it.

Be that as it may, a demo might not have been the best choice. It is indeed a good way to alienate some players. It might have been more judicious to develop a mini-chapter that could be played as a stand-alone and/or served as an introduction in the full-scale game. I don't know. I am not throwing you the first rock here (you didn't do anything bad). I'm just brainstorming out loud.

Anyway, congrats again dude.

Awesome

I want to buy the full version, but alas, I cannot. It looks very promising and seems much better than the first two, which were already amazing as is! Keep up the great work, man.

Pretty awesometastic

I enjoyed the previous two and granted I was dissapointed when I learned you would have to pay for the third I plan on purchasing it when I grab a few bucks. I enjoyed the demo. It provided more than just a post-apocalyptic world, it offered the chance at revenge according to the game. I mean you just came back from hell and you want to kill the destinaed ruler of the demon race. And you want to complain about the tag and say everything as terrible? The graphics are very...breathtaking to say the very least! Now the music was dark and spooky, and the gameplay was easy to handle other than going to a menu without pausing to use a power. But it's fine. Overall it was enjoyable and I am glad to have played the demo to prepare for the full game.

Played the full version also

When the game first came out I immediately got the full version cause I didn't want to miss out and I already knew this game was going to be awesome. Exmortis 3 was incredible and I loved your additions of different gameplays such as the shooting scenes like with the sniper rifle, the little tricks and twists with the story, you did not disappoint me, once again I have played an awesome Exmortis game
