After teasing a Human Defiance announcement yesterday, Eidos today revealed their April Fools’ joke: an 8-bit adaptation of Deus Ex: Human Revolution.
In a video posted on the Deus Ex official website, executive director Jean-Francois Dugas and production designer Jonathan Jacques-Belletete make a tongue-in-cheek Kickstarter-style plea for fan support to make their 8-bit dream a reality.
The video also features footage of the old time-y interpretation of Deus Ex in action. It is … surprisingly charming.
You can watch the video over at the Deus Ex: Human Defiance landing page.
