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

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"

i love this game so much but it glitched and i couldn't get that far but that is ok i still love it https://youtu.be/jPOnC78erkE

The comment below me is cringe, but I too had an issue with the back arrow and now I'm stuck.

pleas fix . this game it is such classic i cannot seem to escape the hall on the right on the second fore. i think there mite be something wrong with the back arrow . i think with a little miner adjustment it will be hunky dory this game is a true gem and defiantly take me back.

When I go to the room to the right in the second floor hallway it doesn't let me click the arrow to go back, and I also can't seem to put down the knife after examining it.... the game is rlly well designed and has great atmosphere, but i literally cant progress

When I enter the second floor I have trouble clicking on the arrow to get back down after completing what I need to. idk if this is an error in coding but it doesn't allow me to go back downstairs.
