Mel Croucher takes to Kickstarter in attempt to fund Deus Ex Machina 2
Today, our friends at Kotaku brought our attention to Mel Croucher’s attempt to, after nearly 30 years, create a sequel to the cult-classic Deus Ex Machina, which was released in 1984.
In order to bring this game to life, Mr. Croucher has gone to Kickstarter, where he hopes to gain enough funding to make the game a reality. But what will the game’s plot be, you may ask?
The Kickstarter page sums up the plot simply enough, stating, “this brand new version is a darkly comic cradle-to-grave roller coaster of your entire life. It takes you on a surreal journey from before your own birth, all the way through the temptations and dangers of your life, and beyond your own death. And the music’s great too!”
Will Croucher gain the £64,000 goal he requires in order to make the game? There’s still 10 days left, and he’s acquired £29,487, but can he get the last bit he needs, or will the sequel be doomed to never see the light of birth?
