“Deus Ex: The Nameless Mod” or “Se7en years in the Making”

November 27, 2009 1 comment

Deus Ex remains to this day one of the most satisfying games I have ever played. I have fond memories of it from well over eight years ago, when it was first released. The developers back then released a toolset, allowing modders to create their own worlds. However, after about 2-3 years, most mods died out or simply faded into oblivion.

One project, The Nameless Mod, trudged on steadily, and on November 22, 2009, finally reached the finish line.

It has been seven years since the modding team, Off Topic Productions, had started work on the mod.

I found out about the mod’s release very recently, courtesy of RPS. They also conducted an interview with the Chief Creative Officer (mod leader) of Off Topic Productions, Jonas W√¶ver. It’s an interesting read, and gives some valuable insight into what it takes to keep a mod alive for so long.

Eight years later, I can’t even recall where my Deus Ex CDs are, not that I would have time at the moment to check it out. But if you were ever a fan, you can check it out here.
