    The Untitled 'Ski Resort' Game

    Another quick update on the untitled Ski Resort game I am working on at the moment. A new screenshot (see above) and some early gameplay footage - which can be found at this link:

    I'm having fun making this game - it is certainly vastly different to what you are used to getting from me... and that in itself is as good as a holiday!

    Design Refresh & New Actionscript Blog

    I got a little bit tired of the dark brooding vibe this blog and my Twitter page was conveying... yeah sure, it was appropriate artwork for when our main focus was Exmortis 3...

    However Exmortis 3 is now 8 months old and my focus has subsequently shifted to the project(s) ahead of me - so I wanted to brighten things up a little bit around here as I push into less dystopian and morbid territory.

    Also - for those of you who follow this blog and are of the Flash Dev breed, just a reminder that I have a new Actionscript developer blog which may be relevant to your interests...

    More good stuff to come in the months ahead here!

    New game in the pipeline...

    Hey y'all... it's been a while, huh?

    Things have been hectic of late. I've been swamped under a mountain of client work since the new year, but thankfully I've managed to get enough of it out of the way to dedicate just a little bit of my time to developing our new game...

    Snow enthusiasts are gonna love this one, as you build and manage your own alpine wonderland! More details to come in the months ahead so for now, enjoy the screenshots!

    Buy Exmortis 3 Now With Paypal

    Just a quick blurb to let you all know that now accepts Paypal as a transaction method, so for those of you who weren't able to purchase Exmortis 3 because you don't have a credit card, this will come as welcome news!

    Merry Christmas all! It's been a fruitful year. Hopefully next year proves to be another successful one.

    Byteside Appearance Online

    This past Tuesday I appeared on the panel for the Byteside video podcast to discuss all things Horror. It was a fun experience to rub elbows with fellow game gurus, magazine editors and give my 2-cents on what makes horror gaming such an important genre.

    Check it out now!

    My new game: Othexo

    I've only been back a week from my trip to Europe, and I've managed to scrape together this quick puzzle game. It's nothing huge, merely a 5 minute time waster... so have fun!

    See you in October...

    Hi all,

    Just a quick reminder that I will be travelling around Europe until October, so I will not be around for support on Exmortis 3, nor will I be able to moderate any comments left on this blog until I get back.

    Subsequently as previously mentioned, for any support issues you will need to contact the support team.

    Quick patch for Exmortis 3

    Hi guys,

    A bug that some have been reporting on Exmortis 3 has reared it's head again...

    A patch is available here:

    Unfortunately for those of you who have a saved game in Chapter 5 and the end of Chapter 4, this probably won't help you. You will need to install the attached and then load up a save game from the beginning of Chapter: Exodus to experience the bug fix.

    Apologies to those affected...
