deusexlogoDeus Ex Machina was released back in 1984, playable on computers like the Sinclair ZX Spectrum and the Commodore 64. Back then, Deus Ex Machina was groundbreaking and one of the most popular games of that time. It was an interactive movie with a full-sync rock album soundtrack with it. No game delved into something so dark and elaborate at the time. In Deus Ex Machina, you start at the beginning of human life all together and carry on through stages (each separated by different songs) up until death.

After the Kickstarter campaign for a Deus Ex Machina sequel, the demand for a Deus Ex Machina re-released was high. Automata Source took their backer’s needs into account and for the 30th Anniversary of Deus Ex Machina, it will be re-released on PC, Mac, iOS, Android, OUYA, and Linux. This Kickstarter campaign is the only opportunity to get your hands on the re-release.

Automata Source is asking for £5,750 on Kickstarter to add a credit sequence with all the backer’s names, produce Deus Ex Machina in the multiple formats (by the original team) listed above, remastering the soundtrack and retouching artwork, along with all the production and delivery fees for the miscellaneous rewards.

It’s exciting to see such a monumental piece of gaming history resurfacing after all this time for the generations that weren’t able to experience it. Collectors, enthusiasts, and newbies-alike will all have reasons to explore Deus Ex Machina and fund it.
