Deus Ex Design Documents

An article on called the "The deleted scenes of Deus Ex," examines Warren Spector's original design documents for Deus Ex, ION Storm's cyberpunk action/RPG. The look at various changes the project took from the original outline, leading lead writer Sheldon Pacotti to say "Warren once commented that in the beginning he envisioned the game as X-Files but he somehow ended up with James Bond." They also note the original working title of Deus Ex was Majestic Revelations, which might seem like a classic now had it stuck, but sounds pretty awful.

How does Warren Spector go from System Shock to Epic Mickey 2?

Epic fails...

Epic Mickey really isn't that bad a game. No idea about #2, but one was pretty decent.

It's just marginal steps, and suddenly you're doing stuff that nobody could have ever seen you doing. Look at Richard Garriott: His latest game was a fucking poker game for Facebook.

As for the name, yeah, that would have sucked. Imagine Majestic Revelations:Human Revolution. Urk.

Edit : Fixed tag.


It's really a bad game... already the price dropped down to $19 here from $59 for all platforms. You can see the general consensus shows that it got an average of 60%, but user score average is lower being at 4.3/10. (Metacritic link.) That's already a travesty. Ask a game store how many copies they sold and they'll tell you nobody's buying it, sales is very low.

You say you have no idea about #2, but that's because you know you won't play it. Remember what Warren said earlier, that after this he'll already be working on Epic Mickey 3? I can't imagine it being that much better.
