The Nameless Mod


Download The Nameless Mod The final patch is now available!

Welcome to the release web site for The Nameless Mod — sleeker, sexier, super-er than the development site and with 100% more released-ness. The Nameless Mod is a total conversion mod for the hit video game Deus Ex, and after 7 years, it now spills forth from our servers like water bursting through a dam and into the parched and withered desert.

Here is the obligatory link to the trailer page that you saw when you first came here, just in case you want to bask in its full glory again.

And don't forget to check out the News Section for the latest updates from the developers!

    In case you haven't yet heard, New Vision was recently released! It's a mod that upgrades the world textures in Deus Ex, and it's fully compatible with The Nameless Mod.

    Now, this is very exciting news, of course, but we must still remember to be responsible and not lose our heads—saying "my vision is augmented" is NOT an appropriate use of the New Vision mod, and everyone will hate you.

    This has been a public service announcement from Cranky Layabouts Against Saying Your Vision is Augmented (C.L.A.S.Y.V.i.A.) "Let's keep it CLASY... ViA not saying your vision is augmented!"

    The results for ModDB's 2009 Mod of the Year Awards are in, and they simply must be read under a large graphic!

    So do so, if you somehow missed it on your way in!

    (Yes, I am pretending that this did not all take place about a month ago. Hush. Maybe some people won't notice.)

    I warned you that this would happen. It's your last chance to vote. The fate of the world rests in your hands.

  4. Thursday, January 7, 2010

    Welcome to the new year, my childrens. Last week (or thereabouts...) you were casually prodded to vote for TNM in ModDB's Mod of the Year 2009 event and treated to a delightful holiday tale by a dwarf with a falsetto.

    This week you are plainly asked to vote for TNM in ModDB's Mod of the Year 2009 event and forced to bear witness to a discussion of edible rodents and the loss of a loved one.

    I think you can see where this is going.

    We want your vote.

    If you were confused by the Melkmas video that accosted you, hopefully this short news post can clear a few things up. If you don't know what I'm talking about at all, you might want to check to see if you're stuck in an episode of FlashForward.

    If you've played TNM, you probably already know that the Goats are a powerful religious faction in the game (alongside the accursed Llamas). However, you may not know that they celebrate Melkmas, an important holiday this time of year which in no way resembles any celebration we have outside Forum City.

    In brief, Melkmas is the time of year when all the Goat boys and all the Goat girls put their glass Melk™ bottles on the front stoop of their Goat domiciles to be filled by Gerald, the legendary Goat prophet. Of course, since Goat City has fountains from which Melk springs eternal, you may be wondering why they do this.


    Well that wraps up this little guide to Melkmas, but why not celebrate Melkmas yourself by giving that special Goat in your life a Goat shirt, or voting for your favourite mods this year? (Hopefully including The Nameless Mod)

    Have a mirthful Melkmas, and enjoy your other holidays this season, too!

    Lots of great news today, especially if love the music in TNM, or haven't given the mod a try yet! First of all, the team is proud to announce the release of the TNM Official Soundtrack; it's 25 of the best tracks from the game, digitally remastered and available for your downloading pleasure.

    But wait; why not save yourself the trouble of downloading the soundtrack and burning it to a CD by ordering the two disc collection? You can purchase it at the price it costs to make it, and features original artwork on both the discs and the jewel cases as an added bonus.

    Also, if you haven't played TNM yet, now is the perfect chance, as the Win32 Executable download has been patched to version 1.0.4!

  7. Thursday, November 26, 2009

    Riding on the wave of the 1.0.4 patch is the TNM Software Development Kit (SDK)! Want to tweak something in the game, or add to it? The SDK will let you do it, provided you know a thing or two about Deus Ex modding. If you don't, you can head on over to the new home of Tack's Deus Ex Lab for tutorials, and drop by the new DXEditing forums. Thanks for shopping at OTP, your one-stop modding shop.

    It's been long in coming, but the final TNM patch has arrived, and is sure to put a smile on your face (or a sneer, if you're an evil villain who hates fun).

  9. Thursday, August 27, 2009

    You may or may not have noticed that on the left column of this site (note to time travellers: this may or may not currently be true in your alternate timeframe/dimension/multiverse), below Action Trestkon's mighty stumps, is a rack of logos linking to the web sites of some of the fine contributors who used their professional skills and equipment to help make TNM come alive.

    Today, I am announcing the addition of Leo Badinella's web site to The Rack. You may be thinking, "OiNutter, TNM has been out for months; What took so long?" Well, I'm afraid that quite some time ago I was given the misinformation that Mr. Badinella had made personal remarks to the media that slandered my good name. Thus, when The Rack was being put together, I did not feel motivated to use his logo as one of its adornments.

    Recently, I was informed that this was not the case, much to my dismay. It was actually Justin Timberlake. So, Leo Badinella, please accept my humblest apologies for this grave misunderstanding, and Justin Timberlake, prepare for a shunning.

    ModDB is running a mid-year promotion showcasing the best mods and indie games from the first 6 months of the year, called The Summer of Mods and Indies.

    PCPowerPlay has published a 3-page interview with Lawrence Laxdal, Jonas Wæver, and Shane Tapp of Off Topic Productions, the development team behind The Nameless Mod.

    GameSetWatch has interviewed Jonas Wæver and Lawrence Laxdal as part of a series of articles looking at alternative games, indie titles, and mods.

  16. Friday, May 8, 2009

    Australia's PCPowerPlay Magazine has gone completely crazy over The Nameless Mod! The game has been given an ecstatic 2-page review resulting in ratings of 10/10 for Gameplay, 9/10 for Innovation, 7/10 for Polish, and 9/10 overall. There are also numerous TNM references throughout the magazine and the game is mentioned on the cover! You can check out a few scans on Jonas' Blog.

    German magazine GameStar, perhaps the best-selling computer gaming magazine in Europe, has given TNM a full-page review in their June 2009 issue, giving it a perfect score of 5/5 in Design, Scope, and Fun!

    The moment you've been waiting for is here! Patch 1.0.2 is yours for the downloading, installing, and playing. It contains an astounding amount of bug fixes (by which we mean over 200!), and should eliminate all but the most elusive problems. As is customary, the patch may be located on the Downloads page. It's compatible with either version 1.0.0 or 1.0.1 of the mod, and should also be compatible with previous savegames as well, but we recommend that you begin a new playthrough just to be on the safe side.

  19. Thursday, April 16, 2009

    TNM Version 1.0.2 approaches! We've been paying very close attention to all the bug reports people have been kindly sending our way, and are just about ready to release a 1.0.2 patch. If you thought the first patch had an epic change log, just wait until you see 1.0.2! This patch should polish up most all the remaining gameplay issues and reduce a lot of the nasty crashes that some people have been having. Expect it to hit around the 20th of this month!

  20. Thursday, April 16, 2009

    We're shocked (and ridiculously pleased) that TNM has now been downloaded more than 7000 times! We'd like to thank everyone for the awesome responses that we've been getting. We absolutely love it when people drop by the forums and let us know what they think of the mod!

  21. Thursday, April 16, 2009

    The Reticule has posted an in-depth interview with our Jonas Wæver, lead designer extraordinaire. Jonas sheds some light on the development of TNM and how we managed to keep things rolling for seven years.

  22. Thursday, April 16, 2009

    We were pleased to learn recently that not only do we have fans, we have talented fans. Forum user Teknikal has created some absolutely eye-popping art featuring several pivotal TNM characters. Check them out on, or check out her thread in our forums and shower her with some much deserved praise!

  23. Thursday, April 16, 2009

    Richard Cobbett, of PC Gamer UK fame, has written up a rather positive review of TNM. Here's my favourite bit: "The Nameless Mod is one of the best mods I've ever played."
