From the maker of Markistan RPG 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 we think 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, we don't think you'll see what can be done in the frame of Deus Ex the same ever again.

The mod is expected to take quite some time, as many of its aspects 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 a technically practical reach with enough time and effort.

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

Would love to see a full run-down of your process of getting from Blender 2.7 to Deus Ex. I've been trying to figure that problem out for forever, and at one point I 'kind of' got it by using Milkshape 3D as a pipeline.

Still, if you have a cohesive route for this, I'd be much obliged! Dunno if you want to post a huge thing in comments, or if you have a blog that you could link to with a more in-depth instruction set on that.

Been meaning to do some work updating character models for the vanilla game, myself. :D

I'll shoot you a PM with the current methodology. Used to use 3ds2de, but that was inferior and the new Vertex Animation addon for 2.7 onwards is vastly superior in many ways. I'm happy to share, but it's a lot of text and may not make sense out of the box.

I would love to help in any way, whether it's models, textures, sound design, etc.

On that note, join the OTP Discord if you need any extra modding help and such. Discord.gg

Awesome! Always happy to get hands on deck. I'll try to navigate this, but I'll join the discord either way!

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.
