Deus Ex Machina 2, the reimagination of the classic 1984 Game Of The Year, Deus Ex Machina, a pioneering multimedia video game developed by Automata, has launched a Kickstarter campaign as Mel Croucher, creator of the original, needs £64,000 to perfect the user-options, gameplay and scoring of the game as well as make iOS and Android ports.
As Mel Croucher states Deus Ex Machina 2 it’s a cradle-to-grave roller coaster of your entire life. “Imagine if your life was nothing more than some electronic game. Imagine if you knew then what you know now. Imagine if you could replay your little life all over again.
Battle your way to the womb, fertilize that egg, navigate the birth canal to get born, then focus, crawl, stand, balance, run, jump, learn and obey! Battle the hairs and zits of adolescence. Discover pleasure, love, pain, guilt and betrayal. Mess around, run away, hide out, suffer under, heal up, sell off, struggle through, knuckle down, tip over, cave in, dance on! Exploit your power, peddle your guilt, bust your body, embrace your decline, swallow your pills, lose your mind, dream your dreams and fly!”, reads the game’s description.
For Deus Ex Machina 2 Automata has teamed up with the oldest actor ever to be knighted, and brought the godfather of punk back from the dead. In more detail, Sir Christopher Lee will have the role of The Narrator in the game, while Ian Dury will be The Fertilizer, remixed and remastered from his original brilliant performance. Other notable artists involved in the project are, Joaquim de Almeida of Desperado and 24 fame, and singer-songwriter Chyna Whyne.
