In Forum City, the Internet is serious business. As its name implies, the city is the physical embodiment of Internet forums and bulletin boards. It's more like The Matrix or Tron than Second Life, however, as the troubles of the city are no laughing matter. Embracing the style of Deus Ex, Forum City has as much crime and conspiracy as the world of JC Denton — but most citizens would have it no other way.

The lust for power seems to come easily to those who call the city their home; everywhere there are factions scheming to increase their reach, or even wrest control of the city itself. Were it not for a peacekeeping triumvirate of invulnerable Moderators the city would quickly plunge into chaos.

This has been the way of things for as long as most care to remember.

But now, the balance of power has been upset. Unthinkably, a Moderator has disappeared, and panic is gripping the city. With the remaining Moderators spread far too thin, the lawless have found themselves with the freedom to prey upon others, and formerly suppressed rivalries threaten to explode into open conflict.

You are called upon to silence the discord.

Throughout the course of the game, you take on the avatar of Trestkon, a former intelligence agent whose reasons for leaving the city are mysterious, at best. Negotiating for his return was an act of desperation, but having known him personally, the remaining Moderators trust that he can find their missing colleague before it is too late.

Two years can change a man, however, and Trestkon's loyalty is not set in stone. Now imbued with legal authority, he could tip the balance of power in virtually anyone's favour, and the multitude of factions are well aware. Corrupt corporations, religious fanatics, cyber-terrorists, and even deadly computer programs will stop at nothing to gain Trestkon's allegiance.

Your task is simple: Save the world. The rest is up to you.

TNM graphically enhanced TNM graphically enhanced TNM graphically enhanced

If you're one of the people who've been casually following the gradual disassembly of Off Topic Productions after the release of The Nameless Mod, you might be interested to know that three of the TNM developers are behind a new tactical party-based roleplaying game recently launched on Kickstarter: Expeditions: Conquistador.

The lead designer, the composer, and the animator of the Conquistador team all held those same positions on the TNM team. The new game is a stand-alone commercial indie game built with the Unity engine and set in Central America at the beginning of the Spanish conquest in the 16th century. A tactical roleplaying game with a touch of strategic resource management and a pinch of choose-your-own-adventure. The setting of Conquistador is a rarely visited part of history which is rife with mystery, political intrigue, and good old-fashioned violence.

You will take on the role of a Spanish Conquistador in South America in 1518-1520. Select the members of your expedition and explore campaign maps based on the actual topological maps of Hispaniola and Mexico. Through intricately branching dialogue, you will engage with the characters and situations that you encounter across these uncharted areas, and when it’s time to spill blood, a tactical combat system of great depth and brutality will let you control your individual troops in battle.

Here's the game's feature list from the Kickstarter page:

  • Engaging and intricately branching storyline with difficult decisions and long-term consequences.
  • A gallery of unique expedition members who chime in during events & conversations and react to your decisions - pay attention to their morale or you may have to deal with mutiny!
  • Random events that throw you into danger, present unexpected opportunities, and build relationships with the members of your expedition.
  • High replayability - dynamic endings reflect decisions you've made throughout the story, how much gold you bring with you back to Spain, and how many expedition members you've lost (or gained!) along the way.
  • Detailed and tactical combat - make use of flanking, traps & barricades, attacks of opportunity, interrupts, cover & concealment, character abilities, and more.
  • Character management - unlock special abilities by promoting your expedition members, assign equipment to your troops, and treat injured or sick characters with a triage system.
  • Dynamic trading system - barter with different merchants and buy & sell resources based on local market conditions.
  • Campaign maps based on actual topological maps of the Dominican Republic and Mexico.

If all this sounds like something you might be interested in playing, please consider backing the Kickstarter to ensure that the game is finished, and that it will be able to live up to the legacy of interactive narrative and uncompromising attention to detail that made The Nameless Mod so popular.

Is this mod compatible with either of the following:
- Deus Ex: New Vision (which replaces 75% of the textures with DirectX 10 textures)
- the fixed "DeusEx.exe" and other files with the modified fixes of DirectX, resolution and GUI
- the fixed "DeusEx.u" with some of the bug fixes repaired.

Probably not the fixed DeusEx.u (TNM's code references a ton of classes in that package, and the fixed version would have to be very carefully made not to conflict with TNM's changes - even so TNM would probably still override a lot of the fixes). It's fully compatible with New Vision and Kentie's DeusEx.exe, however (you'll need to make a copy of Kentie's exe and rename it to TNM.exe, overwriting the original one).

Yikes, Didn't work out. first it didn't recognize my save files, so i tired launching it anyway and it didn't change anything. now it won't launch. looks like I need to reinstall :(

Jonas Aug 17 2011 replied:

If it doesn't recognise your saves it's because Kentie's exe moves the save folder of the game to your My Games folder in your documents. You'll need to copy your saves over to that location from the DeusEx folder.

Amazing mod. Is there anyway I could launch this through kentie's custom .exe like i can with the original deus ex? I'd love to get an FOV easier on the eyes for TNM

Jonas Aug 9 2011 replied:

Hmm! Yes I'm certain you can. Try renaming TNM.exe, then copying Kentie's, and then renaming the copy to TNM.exe. I can give it a shot myself later and see if I'm right.

It's launching through kentie's, but without any change
