From the maker of DSTNM comes Hatchet. Hatchet is a heavy duty conversion mod for Deus Ex with a campaign all its own. Hatchet contains a unique storyline & employs free-roam mechanics to present a world will shock, satisfy, & puzzle you to the end.

Most of Hatchet's Plot has to be kept hush hush for proper reasons, but be aware it has been heavily thought out and layered with the concept of 12 different endings in mind. Additionally an all-new world style of mushy cartoon-like presentation and brutal action up its sleeve, you won't see Deus Ex the same ever again.

The mod has only recently started production and will take some time, as many mechanics are ambitious, such as all-new gameplay mechanics, totally remeshed characters, weapons, & decorations, and a large world with many fascinating locations to travel to and visit. A lot of ambition is set, but it's all within practical reach with enough time and effort.

Check regularly (or "watch" the mod) for updates in screenshots, videos, and more.

Edit 1/8/14: We have just signed up with an up-and-coming company, Ex Unitae Vires, for development, and are very excited for their benefits they'll bring the mod and what we can offer them.

So funny story. Funnier than the article name typo last month. Down with a cold, and then bronchitis, and went to make a video discussing the event and how it's slashed half my work capacity this month. And then windows movie maker has bugged out and is generating corrupt files.

We're talking it's using 1/4 of the frame (the bottom left), spinning it 180 on its head, then corrupting all the visuals to alternating shades of bright green and bright pink. Ironically, the audio's just fine, though, but it's not worth the bandwidth to just post the audio.

How unlucky can one guy get? Despite the delays, here's a transcript of what I got done before the great plague struck:
-Some level design and redesign.
-Some mild item work.
-Fire extinguisher modeled (not yet refined, so no preview)
-Keypad modeled, with card scanner (not yet refined)
-3d printer modeled (not yet refined)
-Slight bug fixes in some decorations related to parent class inheritance.

Was hoping to be miles ahead of this point by now, but it is what it is. Thanks for hanging in there as I try to do the same.

i've been reading through the articles and it looks like a lot of work building a game from the ground up in terms of resources. Are you by any chance monetizing/featuring on steam or a similar platform?

I don't think it's possible due to the inclusion of assets owned by Eidos. Moreover, I'm in this for the fun I get to hand people and the fun I have solving the puzzle to get there.

And yeah, we're aiming to make this memorable in every area. We have the technical ability and experience, so it's just one foot in front of the other.

I see you putting that work in. I know you probably know this already, but make sure that whatever happens, you try to stay the course and don't lose your motivation.

Wish you the best of luck, Shanana.

Oup! Yup. Well, yeah, I can't say I liked who I was in high school. Although I guess that's to be expected, and man am I glad to be out of the dramasphere these days.

Thanks for the words of encouragement, in any case. The wind in my sails, often times.

I'm working for some time on an OpenGLDrv for Unreal Engine 1, however I just ran a quick & dirty test for using some sort of cartoon like effect in Nerf Arena Blast: Coding.hanfling.de and imho such an approach could work fairly well for Hatchet, so contact me if you have some interest in it.

Thanks a ton for the offer! We'll talk more in PM's when we get the chance.
