    Apologies for lack of updates

    Hi all,

    Apologies for the lack of updates in the past few months. There have been a lot of life changing and career definining moments for me of late - and they have subsequently taken my recent focus away from the Exmortis 3 project.

    I wish I could go in to details, but my reasons are either of a personal nature or I am being prevented from saying anything due to a variety of non-disclosure agreements I've had to sign recently.

    I've had a lot of ups and downs in the past few months, but most important of all - I have been the busiest I have ever been in my life. Things are starting to happen for me professionally and the work I am producing is starting to make major waves here in Australia. Unfortunately as a result, the water gets muddied, people important to me get neglected, and professional & personal priorities get mixed up.

    But as I've stated previously, Exmortis 3 is a labour of love for me. I promise you - it will happen. I just don't know when. Hopefully I can make it happen sooner rather than later...

    I have been copping a fair whack of abuse lately in the comments sections - and I do understand why. You guys are just keen to play the game and you are frustrated with constant delays and a lack of information coming back to you through this blog... I promise you that I am keen to let you guys play the game.

    I've received nothing but adulation for the previous two releases, and I want nothing more than to bask in the warmth of another success and soak in the knowledge that it was a job well done... I want that feeling back more than anything...

    I do apologise for the rather cryptic and informationless nature of this post... if I could say more I would... but I guess I just wanted you guys to know that my passion for this project has not died down. I am not being lazy. I am not trying to neglect it and you. Exmortis 3 will eventually happen... AND IT WILL PWN YOU!

    Ben.

    I bookmarked this site, take as long as you want. Exmortis is something worth waiting for.

    dude, life happens, go with the flow and keep afloat. your games have and will continue to rock, but ya gotta remember there's more to life than impatient teens who cannot wait for quality. listen to the voices in your head (no, the other ones) and just be true to you, all else will follow, or totally collapse in a mighty conflagration.

    thanks,
    the other guy

    IT'S ME AGAIN, the one who accused you of slacking your ass off!

    Nah, this comment is not to flame you but rather...

    All the best, Ben!

    dude, don't give up, take all the time you need, whether it'd be 1 month or 87 years.

    Just as long as the game is good we're all happy.

    Best of luck.

    well, on second thought, don't take 87 years, maybe 5 years? I dunno, just impress me like you have in the last 3 games.

    I'm bored..... -_-

    Anywayz, god bless you. good luck.

    I've been keeping tabs for a while and when nothing came up for the first few weeks I said WTF! After another few weeks I feared the worst. But now I'm relieved as hell!

    This game is very much awaited in my home, and I have put on my "list of most wanted games" Exmortis 3 comes in right at number 2, underneath Half-Life 2 episode 2, you do not need to hurry to release this game, because we all know it will be worth the wait.

    Hey shit happens it'll be finished wen it gets finished and wen it does im sure itll be better than the other 2

    Spike said...

    ay ben. don't hurry up man. if you are to fast with the game it could be bad. so take the time and look at the details... and what i also want to say... don't make quests like any kind of puzzle... do you know that kind of puzzle where 9 fields in front of you and one is empty?? please don't make such a quest because i hate that
    $pIk€... (if there are some mistakes i have to say I'm not good in the english language)

    I'd rather wait 2 years to play this game and love it than wait 2 weeks, finish in 2 minutes, and hate it 2 much.

    Even if he IS a lazy, masturbating faggot, he's got more talent and a bigger cock than you, as proven by his creative talent in his games. If you're gonna bash the guy, stop posting anonymous!

    P. S.-I am aware of the hypocrisy of using anon to bitch about people using anon. Time constraints forced necessity.

    we were just worried that you were dead or somthing and that we would never get to play exmortis 3. Lol I'm away from a comp for 2 months so hopefully you don't come out with it until after july (put in that extra special touch and release it in august). All the best.

    masturbating faggot, ben is lazy LOL that is pretty funny but seriously ben DONT RUSH IT i swear I want quality stuff, the 2nd ones story was awesome, I luv zombie films and the whole apocolypse theme in EX2 which is present in most zombie films really struck a cord with me A++++ material. I want nothing less with number 3.

    Hey man !
    Greetings from Denmark, I tell you - we just LOVE exmortis down here !
    Really can't wait for the 3. !

    Someone told me that it was being released at august 13th. and i was like counting the days xP But then i read that some annoying maggot was slowing you down x(

    Please keep up the work, and when you can come with a second release-date I'm sure I'll be counting the days again :D
