READ THIS BEFORE YOU PLAY:

Q: What the fuck this game so linear
A: Yep. Newbie's idea, actually, not mine. Personally I prefer linear games. Oh, there's a few nooks and crannies here and there to explore, but by and large you'll be heading down a straight path. If that bothers you for some reason, I suggest loading up Super Metroid and sequence breaking the shit out of it instead or whatever.

Q: Oh my god Friday I played J Project and you reused an area
A: What, you're one of the three people who actually played that? The area isn't reused. I was forced to reuse assets from a lot of stuff, and the general theme of "The Wall" is the same as it was in J Project, but all the content is 100% new. I didn't paste any old screens over.

Q: THIS GAME TOO HARD
A: I really, really made an effort to tone down the difficulty in my areas. (I can't speak for the others.) I did this primarily by being very generous with save points. The rooms can be tricky, but usually you won't have to do them twice. If you're complaining about optional content being too hard, well, that's where I can take the gloves off. Stick to the main path if you're having trouble. Also, if you're frustrated, take a break. This isn't designed for you to plow through in one sitting.

Q: OMFG THIS GAME HAS A BUG
A: I playtested the shit out of it, but of course I'm going to miss shit. I'm sorry for that. Report anything you find in the bug report thread (read it first so you don't report something that's already been reported) and if it's too game-breaking I'll patch it.

Q: How long is this game?
A: I really couldn't tell you. I can slog through the main game in about an hour and a half or so, but I've played every area 50 times. If I had to guess I'd say something like 3-6 hours first playthrough. Optional content will take longer.

Q: Why is so much of the content created by you?
A: Believe me, I didn't want to. I had plenty of work to do just with my original area. (The Abyss and Finale.) As it turned out, I took it upon myself to finish this up. We didn't have a lot of people to help. Bongo also helped out a lot, filling in areas I needed. Romosome did a lot of work on the game as well, though he never drew a single picture or designed a single screen.

Q: OMG FILE SO HUGE
A: 108 megs. Yep. There's a ton of music, and a lot of it is only used for 5 screens or less.

Q: Do you want/take criticism?
A: Absolutely! I firmly believe in the growth of a designer coming from feedback. Please, share your thoughts in the feedback thread. Remember, it's just as helpful (if not more helpful) to talk about things that were done right.

Q: What version of Kyntt Stories are you using?
A: Everything works just fine in 1.2.1.

Hardtype Download Here. (Version 1.5. Fixed some bugs, sound looping fixed in Condemned City, Wall, and a few other places. Umbrella Maze in wall extra save. This is now officially "Hardtype". See below for the Easytype download link.)

IMPORTANT

If you have a previous file version, backup your save file and then redownload and reinstall. Then put your old save file back in.


Above all, have fun! And thanks for playing! It was a blast to make.

EASYTYPE

Hey! Terrible at vidya games? Just want to see content? Don't worry, I've got you covered!

Download EK3 Easytype Here!

Please note the following:

1. Your old save file will still work! Just back it up and import it into the easytype folder!
2. I didn't change anything outside of my own areas, so yyler's, Bongo's, Kazz's, Stush's, and Zara's areas remain unchanged!
3. I forgot to change the description, so when you go to select the game, it'll show up as the same game as the original! Sorry about that! You can change this yourself if you want in the editor, but I think Easytype should always be the second one if you have both installed. FIXED, Easytype now says "Easytype" in the description.
4. Optional content unchanged from Hardtype! You! Will! Get! Raped!
5. Too much of a MAN to download and play something with "Easy" in the name? It's not like I'm putting a bow in Juni's hair! This release is specifically for casual players such as yourself! You'll have a lot more fun with this version, I assure you!

I am thrilled and relieved that you could do what I could not. I got to see my cousin Peter for the first time in almost a decade this past Christmas, and while we were sharing our enthusiasm for Super Meat Boy and other difficult platforming challenges, he actually asked me if I'd ever heard of Exquisite Knorpse. That was a very ambivalent moment. Today I get to tell him that EK3 exists, and I get to play it myself, and I get to brush aside for a while the years of guilt that this thing has been heaping on me. So thank you, Friday, and everybody who contributed, and I'm sorry I made such a mess of things. For those of you who sent me level pieces which I still don't know whether I can recover—I hope I can make that up to you. But today, let's play.

(This is post full playthrough on my part, there may be bugs, but you shouldn't find anything in the main path. I hope.)

If you downloaded any version of ek3 before this appeared next to download link, you need to redownload and install.

Versions prior to that release are unwinnable due to a bug. The Bug isn't until Kazz's area, which is toward the end, so please, do yourself a favor and get the fixed version.

I still worship Newbie for putting Ek2 together. Ek3 had four other level designers. Ek2 had something like ten. That's a lot of copy-pasting rooms and code.

Patch 1.4 is out, if you have anything earlier, I heartily recommend downloading and reinstalling.

Remember, you can copy your save file and put it into the fresh install to retain any progress.

1.4 features a Title Card and nerfed early areas, as well as a few minor bugfixes.

I promise not to montage every death with the Batman death ditty laid over it.  Honest.  Pay no attention to what my hand is doing behind my back.
