Goliath The Soothsayer

Posted by LefflerWebDesign - December 18th, 2007


Hi all,

Just letting everyone know (because for some reason, posting the trailer up in the Alpha section isn't working) that my new "Point N Click" horror/supernatural themed game is coming to Newgrounds very soon.

I was contacted by Universal Records in July this year about producing an Exmortis style game to help market the release of the new Mars Volta album, The Bedlam in Goliath. The story is based upon the real Mars Volta tale of using an Ouija Board that Omar picked up in Jerusalem. Following the group's use of the board, many strange things and bad mishaps began happening to the group and those around them.

Goliath the Soothsayer's story will follow the tale of a person caught in the middle of the board's curse, and his attempt to break free and destroy the board before it can claim any one else's soul.

Not as lengthy as Exmortis2 due to dead line and time contraints - but packs a whole duffle bag full of punch, polish and puzzles. Additional screenshots are posted at http://exmortis3.blogspot.com

Goliath the Soothsayer hits Newgrounds on the same day as The Mars Volta: The Bedlam in Goliath is released :: January 29th, 2008.

Cheers,
Ben.

neat

messy, actually... ;)

sweet and ur still #1 spot on my favorite authors list lol and read about how some of your stuff got stolen, is that true? lookin forward to this game

Thanks brother. I continue to look for new and exciting ways to further the horror point-n-click genre by introducing new animation styles, pushing the boundaries of what can be done in Flash and finding new ways for the player to interact with the game.

At the moment I have an idea that may revolutionise flash gaming, but it's a long way off before I work out all the kinks... :) If I told you any more, I'd have to kill you.

thats pretty awesome lol
hope its get done soon

The game's been done for a couple of weeks now. It will be released initially at Amazon.com at the pre-order page for the new Mars Volta album, The Bedlam in Goliath. Then it will be here at Newgrounds on Jan-29.

oh yeah ive heard some of ur stuff got stolen is that true

It did indeed. Unfortunately I was at the time about half way through creating Exmortis3 at the time. Which means it's a start from scratch scenario. Unless another time intensive paying job comes up, Exmortis3 is my working project...

Sweet man, I am a huge fan of your work. =)

looks sweat and will exmortis3 be the last exmortis

It will indeed... The be-all-and-end-all of the series I'm afraid... You heard it heard 1st :)

I love your work and know that this is going to be great. Jan. 29th? I am counting down the days right now!

Thanks mate... I'm looking forward to the reaction from the community. When I say this title has a lot of parallels with the original Exmortis - I'm not kidding... :)

kewl, this looks scary so after i play it i will have to change my pants agian. Btw, i still think that your first exmortis is the best, but i still can't wait to play #3.

Gonna be hard to top the original Exmortis experience... because it was a trend setter at a time when Flash gaming was still in it's infancy... I'll have to come up with something special for Exmortis3... :)

dude they mention the the goliath game on wiki

Word to the Wiki... :)

beaten your game (little help from a stragety guide for a few parts) and the endings were pretty good keep it up man

im just wondering (this question been bugging me) what if someone made a parodie of your game lol

it is such a great game, a little short though, but it is excellent.

it's quite creepy

Someone made a parody called the house of jeff and lee. Just do a title search here.

yeah really cool. can't wait. is it gonna be as scary as the exmortis series? also i was wondering if you would make a flash game with me, but yeah, i have a story with twists and everything, but i can't draw it.

I played the game on Amazon. IT IS AWESOME. Now get going! I wanna play Exmortis 3 already. Exmortis 1 and 2 were unbelievable. simply amazing.

where is it? it's supposed to come out today.

What happened to Exmortis 3??? I was really looking forward to that. :(

Nice game!
I played it before I even knew you helped make it.

TMV 4 LYFFFFFFFFFFFFFEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

Hey man! Im kinda like a new member here and I WAS making a horror flash game until my 30 day trial expired. I was inspired by your game Exmotis, the game Alone in the Dark and that flash game Trapped. I wanted to thank you for that. (Scared the hell out of me Exmortis)
