INTERVIEW QUOTES / Ben Leffler, Creator and Designer of the Exmortis trilogy:
“We have spent three years refining the detail and audio-visual effects for the final instalment of the Exmortis trilogy. The third chapter is a combination of the most successful, horrific and enjoyable elements of Exmortis 1 and 2, and builds on the traditional Point-n-Click genre by adding puzzles and shooter sequences.”
“Considerable planning has been undertaken to perfect the Game’s sense of timing, horror atmosphere and narrative. My advice for gamers is to turn the lights down, sound up and immerse themselves in the journey and terror of Exmortis 3.”

“Fans have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of Exmortis 3 and they won’t be disappointed. The frightening storyline, intricate detail and chilling sound effects of the final instalment of the Exmortis trilogy we hope will set a new benchmark for the‘Horror Point-n-Click’ genre.”
