This month we're mixing things up yet again: the game for August is Deus Ex, but with a twist! Deus Ex was released on PC, Mac, and PS2, but we're going to be playing the PC version. Most of you are probably familiar with this game, but for those of you that have been living under a rock for the last decade, here's Wikipedia's description of the game:
Set in a dystopian world during the year 2052, the central plot follows rookie United Nations Anti-Terrorist Coalition agent JC Denton, as he sets out to combat terrorist forces, which have become increasingly prevalent in a world slipping ever further into chaos. As the plot unfolds, Denton becomes entangled in a deep and ancient conspiracy, encountering organizations such as Majestic 12, the Illuminati, and the Hong Kong Triads throughout his journey.
The twist this time is what we're dubbing the Ultra-team Challenge: Rather than voting for the next game, we will instead be taking sign ups for the challenge itself. Once sign ups are over, participants will form small teams. The goal of this challenge will be to play through the entire game by swapping a single save file between each other. Think of it like a high tech game of hot potato!
To accomplish this task, players will be taking turns. Each team member has the entire day to play the game when their turn is up, but they must play the game for no more than 60 minutes before sending the game off to the next team member, who will then continue from where the last person left off. When the team reaches Hong Kong, play time per turn is increased to 90 minutes. Teams are limited to one turn per day, so make it count! If a team member is unable to play when their turn is up, they may pass the game off to the next team member.
Sign up ends on Thursday, August 9th at 10 PM EST.
Working together is a must, so be sure to post tips, tricks, hints or anything else you can think of. You are not required to make a progress report of the game as you play, nor do you have to take screenshots, but it certainly might help your team out if you do!
