    Alarm Hot Vest


    My previous post with regards to an August 13th release date for a new project has now been post-poned... which is good news for you Exmortis fans out there because it means I can refocus attention on that title.

    I won't elaborate on the "Alarm Hot Vest" conundrum from my previous post just yet, because the project is still going to happen around December/January...

    Without giving away any confidential information, I was contacted by a company (a brand that you are all very familiar with...) to put together a new spooky viral point-n-click game to help market a VERY VERY COOL new product release of theirs... However they have had to delay the release date, so my immediate attention to this project is not required until later in the year... suffice to say, working with this client on this project is going to be a glowing addition to my portfolio... possibly more so than the noteriety associated with the Exmortis series thus far.

    The delay on the Alarm Hot Vest project is also great for me because my current workload looks like this (this list more for me than it is for the public):
    • Continue development on the Exmortis3 title.
    • Finish up work on a website for an internationally branded Health Club.
    • Launching and developing a new Internet TV channel that I am very actively involved in. (This is going to rock hard! More on this in the coming weeks...)
    • I'm on hiatis at the moment from another big DVD/Flash based project while legal wranglings are being sorted out by the customer. But once legalities are sorted, this will smash up all my spare time... I guarantee it!!
    • A new website is needing to be developed from scratch for a baseball club here in Sydney before the summer season starts in September/October.
    • Developing a small eCommerce site for online procurement for a technology company before end of July.
    • Developing a quick and easy website for a Water Tank business here in Sydney.

    And all this needs to be done inbetween my full time sales job, me finding a new home for me and my dog, buying new furniture/general household appliances, a trip to the alps to get a week of snowboarding in, my 30th birthday extravaganza later this month, my commitment to playing baseball, AND a holiday to Great Keppel Island in November (plus whatever else pops up between now and then)

    That list looks bloody daunting on paper - it was a lot shorter in my head!! I swear - if I'm not burnt out by year's end, I haven't worked hard enough!!!

    Just finished 1 & 2 tonight, and my word: what a fantastic series.

    Silent Hill didn't creep me out nearly as much as these games did -- fine work you do!

    Thank you for your time and dedication to this game, it's much appreciated.

    I will be anxiously awaiting the release of 3, and hoping dearly you don't run into any more troubles with the game :(

    Thank you again.

    Hey its me again I have a question for you. What made you think of a title like exmortis?

    The Key To Darkness said...

    hi, im a huge fan of the ExMortis series and i think your doing a good job Ben!! Though i expected you fans to be more knowledgable in legibility, or for those fans directly, YOU KNOW GOOD AT GRAMMER, UGAH-UGAH!! Anyway I probably sound like a geek but thats just cuz my parents rased me that way...... I'm not really, lol also, i think you work on ExMortis is highly credible. (lol, most of the people reading this probly have no clue what I'm saying, and thats why I'm saying it!) I'm waiting patiently for ExMortis 3 and the rise of Lord Vlaew, I was struck the most by the spine chilling saying, "where's your god NOW?" and i urge you to add that as a part of ExMortis 3.

    i have a sneaking suspicion this has something to do with A-T&T, but its really small.... :(

    you deserve an applause.
    all that means i'll be seing your name more often on the web, sweet!

    Isn't 'Alarm Hot Vest' an anagram of 'Mortal Harvest', or something along those lines?

    Whatever it is, I hope it's as good as your other projects. I've always loved horror and point-and-click games, so thank you for combining the two so well.

    Good luck

    first of all, i just found out about exmortis at the beginning of the summer, having nothing better to do than play room escape games on the computer all day.

    When i found the exmortis games, i was amazed (but first grossed out) at how awesome these games are. The story is amazing, and so are the visuals and sounds. You have flat out made the coolest game on the internet.

    Keep up the awesome work, i know plenty of friends who love the game too, and can't wait for the 3rd. Just wanted to thank you for the great experience. G'day, mate!lol.

    One day i had nothing better to do then to find something to do online and here i come across these Exmortis games and they were amazing dude its unbelievable.

    After i finished 1 and 2 i was praying for a thrid game to come out and i cant wait for it.

    It struck me that the storyline u had going would be a great movie i mean if that could be published somehow and go hollywood it would be ill dude =D. Thx for the games
