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...
i wish i could..
i wish icould side with you about how if you never made it comercially you never could have released it. sadly, thats not so true. you never could have released it going into the detail you did. if you would have gone with the layout of the rest of the games all the reviews would be 10s, 9s, or 8s. the reason no one really wants to buy it is the fact that they will play it once and never care about it again. i could llok up the story line online and never have to see the actual game to get closure. i will not be buying this, because i do not believe it deserves it. adding the powers and all may have been a good idea (yes, i did play the trial) but to what extent? you could blow off this review and say "do i care what one person says?" or "It's evolution, buddy. Get used to it. Sorry that your paper run doesn't cover the cost of a game. Maybe you should go throw a stick around the local park... at least that's free." but realize that i played the other two and loved them. i like the trial, but i will not buy something online without a physical copy. blow me off or whatever. but i am a big fan of yours, and by doing so you are just losing more and more of the original people who made it worth it for you to keep going on.
Sure the game doesn't have a great deal of replay value - but hey, I can't think of a single game in the same/similar genres that do - both free and commercial.
Physical copies of the game vs Download games... ever heard of a DVD-Burner? What does it matter if something is physical or cloud based? Is it the real life "trophy" of owning a box with a CD? I don't get it. Someone please explain it to me. I take it you would never buy a game from Steam?
And yes - I stand by my comments - Exmortis 3 would never have been made without financial backing. I'm not some guy with copious amounts of time on my hand to make this stuff for free anymore. I am a professional designer working up to 12 hours a day and I have a wife and a child on the way. Do you think I have a massive amount of free time to build this stuff short of the vision that I had and to do it all for free? I'm sorry, but you are kidding yourself if you do.
Exmortis 3 as it is - or no Exmortis 3 at all... that was the choice that had to be made, and I stand by it.
I realize that my decision polarizes the community and compromises the fan base that made the series a success in the first place - but it was a necessary decision to ensure that the series was given the conclusion that it so deserved. It is the evolution that the product needed to ensure its continued life.
And buddy, I only give blow off responses to people that review Exmortis 3 with a cop-out "WTF?! YOU ARE A SELLOUT. NO PAY TO PLAY ON NG. I rate you 0. EAT A DICK AND DIE" -- Because my smart ass blow off response is what that kind of review deserves... Not to mention I am tired of giving the same justifications and explanations as to why the product evolved - especially to people that are only interested in expressing their views in an abusive manner and/or a series of indecipherable words.
At least you took more than a fleeting moment to discuss the issue with a level head and a non-abusive review... which is why I take the time to respond in kind.
It's a pity
I was a huge fan of Exmortis 1 and 2, and I'm very disappointed that I have to pay for #3. I honestly think you'd make more money making it free and asking for donations. At least make a NG friendly free version, please. Let me know if you ever decide to make this free.
As someone that understands what its like from artists perspective to need to get paid for ones skills and knowledge and time in the real world,I dont think its out of line to put some monetary value on usage of the game.
I mean,this boils down to the same thing as musicians getting paid for performing or for the right to hear their music. Its SOMEONES "blood,sweat and tears" and time out of their life to produce this creative material.
They have rights to their creation.Thats what copyrights are all about.
I really dislike whiners that dont really know anything about creating art or music performing a craft-skill...,let alone games such as this.
People have no concept of the amount of effort that goes into these things.
Every doofus thinks everything in the world should be free to them I guess.
I am a professional restorer of clocks and mechanisms, and let me tell ya,people have no idea how much work really goes into my craft and thus dont respect the issue of needing to get paid fairly for my knowledge and skill and experience.
So I understand the author/developer's need to be compensated.
I cannot really review this yet,but it looks good and I would be willing to pay for the privilege to use it. :)
Dude what happened,
ur games were awesome why did u have to go and make us pay for the third i can understand the need for money but dude the first 2 games were free if u we're planning on making us pay u should have did it from game one not get us all psyched up for the third and be like well I'm broke so pay me... that sucks. ur probably the best flash game maker ever, but this one disappoints me... This game looks so epic but yet i can't play it cuz i have no money if u ever make a free full version let me know... sorry for sounding so angry I was looking forward to this game and when i saw it on here i was like "YES" then I played it and it kept saying hey this isn't the full version play it now and oh it'll cost u... that annoyed me once again sorry for being angry
I don't like putting my details out on the internet, and so refrain from internet buying, neither do I really enjoy signing up to things that i don't want to just to play a game. If you released it on PC CD, or on console (even better) I'd probably be willing to pay at lot more than the current price, but as it is, I'm not at all interested.
