Mod Of The Year 2013 Editors Choice - Best Singleplayer Mod



- DOWNLOAD | FAQ | SOUNDTRACK -

Please install the Microsoft Visual C++ 2012 runtimes before installing the mod itself!



Initial Story
In 2049, unsavory conditions are rampant throughout the world. As soon as it becomes clear that a terrorist attack in Shenzhen, China, was carried out by perpetrators with ties to international groups and that Hong Kong may be their next target - the United Nations Anti-Terrorist Coalition (UNATCO) dispatches their first nano-augmented agent, Mad Ingram, into the city to prevent the situation from escalating any further.


Deus Ex: Nihilum (DXN, DEN or Nihilum for short) is a First Person Shooter mod taking place in an alternate Deus Ex continuity. It features new made-from-scratch original content, while also extensively featuring material from the UNATCO Born mod (used with permission from fender2k1, UB's project leader) and Deus Ex: Revision (used in accordance with the mod's license).


* Over 13,000 downloads in its first year!
* Completely new score with 80+ tracks (over 2 hours of music
)
* 2,200+ lines (more than 3.5 hours of audio)
* 7-13 hours of gameplay (estimate based on testers' playthrough times)
* Three new weapons: the Walther P99 pistol, Light Machine Gun 2049, Gauss Gun (EMP)
- Exploration is everything! Treat the levels as mazes and prepare for back-tracking! While it can be baffling that people are leaving valuable items and other belongings out in the open, agent Ingram doesn't seem to mind!
- Save often and use several savegame slots! This will hopefully save you a lot of time when it comes to handling certain odd issues.
- Encrypted datacubes: Remember, once you've hacked an encrypted datacube, you have to click on it again to make the datacube information window disappear.
- General rule on hacking: Keep in mind that you do not need this skill to advance the main plot itself. However, its general usefulness cannot be underestimated!
* One of the Top 100 mods in 2013 Mod of the Year Awards!

"Aside from the weak voice acting, Nihilum would even qualify as a commercial add-on for the original Deus Ex." - Lassi Lapintie, Pelit 8/2013

Big thanks to everyone who featured the mod!

Additional thanks to everyone who voted DXN into MOTY 2013 Top 100!

Deus Ex: Nihilum was also reviewed by the most prominent Finnish gaming magazine, Pelit, in their August 2013 issue (thus also fulfilling one of my earliest goals when it came to editing games). Suuret kiitokset!


Naturally, it's obvious that you can't please everyone and DXN certainly did receive plenty of feedback from all parts of the spectrum (you can read some of my follow-up thoughts from the anniversary retrospective). However, after going through all the trouble to finish the mod, I was very glad to find out that my efforts were appreciated by fellow DX editors like Trasher64 and {zXc}Henry from Deus Ex: Revision and SilverSpook from Terminus Machina. All in all, I'm very satisfied with the reception the mod got.

And remember, if you have any questions related to DXN's performance (or something else), CHECK THE FAQ FIRST! And if that doesn't help, the quickest way to reach me is by e-mail. I'll try to reply back as soon as I can/if I can!

In addition to having its own TVTropes entry, I'm glad that there are multiple playthrough videos of the mod on YouTube - some raising valid thoughts! If you want to see a 100% complete playthrough of DXN, here are at least two playthroughs worth checking out!


Deus Ex: Nihilum - Queens, New York City

 
To sum things up/TL;DR: With critical acclaim from most of the players, fellow notable DX editors, ModDB and the gaming press, Deus Ex: Nihilum was a definite success! I really can't thank you enough! :]

And last, but definitely not least, I sincerely hope that Deus Ex will receive plenty of great mods in the future. :] In the mean time, check these mods out!

Cheers!

90% of the doors in the Berlin-map won't open for me, even though there is stuff behind them. Is this a bug?

Hmm, I'm quite sure that most of the doors in that map were openable (if the door won't be highlighted by the engine, it can't be opened in any way, tho'). Some of the decorative archi (a lot of it used with permission from DX: Revision) might have intentionally inaccessible items in there, though...

The doors are not highlighted when I go near them, but they respond to the "opensesame"-command.

Ah yes, then they're probably not meant to be opened... I can vaguely remember removing any equippable items from such areas, though. Sorry! :\

Probably the worst voice-acting I've heard in a game yet. I'm not usually one to nitpick about that sort of thing, but the protagonist's ability to sputter seemingly illiterate lines just pulled me out of the moment far too often.

Otherwise a fantastic mod! Very well made.

More or less the consensus view of the mod: "horrible voice acting and writing, otherwise nice!". :]

So what do you think of the voice acting? :P I mean, you did hire them for a purpose, and I must say despite the bad acting, some of them added a bit of comedy to the level.
