This 30th Anniversary Collector’s Edition includes the entire original version, a digitally remastered soundtrack, plus a brand new DIRECTOR’S CUT with all-new graphics.

“Perfection! You’ve got to play it to believe it.” BBC

"An experienced unparalleled by any other game. Deus Ex Machina is a classic." PC World

"The most original concept since the Spectrum was a gleam in Clive Sinclair's eye. The computer equivalent to Pink Floyd's The Wall." Computer & Video Games

"Staggeringly original, unique and impressive." The Sunday Times

"The most unusual program ever released. A bizarre mixture of Aldous Huxley, rock album, psychedelia and the Marx Brothers." The Listener

An experience!

I first played this game on an emulator for the ZX Spectrum when I read about it from the book “1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die” and now I own the remade port on PC/MAC/Linux and now iOS. This game was ahead of its time in many ways. Deus Ex Machina feels right on iOS as you can do what the music narrates with your finger instead of clunky keyboard controls... or don’t play and enjoy the story.

Insanely ahead of its time. One of the most unique/ambitious games ever made.

Seems incomplete

Looks promising, but not sure how to get past the DNA welder scene at the very beginning of the game. This is true on the 8-bit version as well.
