### 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"



Very Nice

Now where to begin where to begin? First off, very nice idea, a story that really draws you in and gets you to wondering, graphics that are very nice and hold to that dark forboding feeling. And the sound! I agree very much with what others have said, the sound makes it all. The soft whispers and such really add a nice touch to get the skin crawling. Reminded me of the movie House on a haunted hill, the remake one, those soft sounds that really get you jumpy. Puzzles were nice, all be it a bit annoying having to go though the house again and again. Like the added one time effects, not going to say anything there so as to not spoil it for anyone. And this is all your first try?! I can't wait to see another from you, infact I wait with baited breath. Only thing that might need some improvement is the controls, mouse clicking is great, but at times it was just clicking as fast as you can around the screen to find what you needed. Maybe make the mouse into a differnt pointer when you hit something, or can move that way? Other then that, wonderful work!
And a note for those going to play this, don't do it at four in the morning, with no lights on in your room, not a good idea in the least, even more soon when you play with headsets on.


i'll make this quick...More!

And now I'm in need of severe therapy.

I played this game using the walkthrough (I'm not very good at games) and I saw both endings. I thought to myself, "Wow, that was a really good game, especially for flash, and especially for a first try. Hm. Off to bed!"

I couldn't get a wink of sleep, and I had to walk to work alone at three in the morning. I was sweating bullets all the way there. Hope you're happy!!! haha.

Honestly, graphics were pretty decent, gameplay was interesting, but the thing that really got me was the audio. MAJOR kudos to you for having the vision to focus your energies on making the sounds scary.

And yes, I want to see more from you. Gold star for Ben. ^_~
