Among other amazing mods available on ModDB's top 100 most popular modifications is Deus Ex: Nihilum, a newly released total conversion mod for the original Deus Ex. Nihilum features "new made-from-scratch original content" to the tune of a 7-13 hour campaign.
That campaign also includes 2,200 voiced lines of dialog, over two hours of brand new soundtrack music, and as close as an amateur designer can get to the original gameplay. Creator FastGamerr writes:
- Exploration is everything! 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!
- 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.
I am installing this so hard right now. You can too by getting the TC mod from the ModDB page.
