The EMP Minisode we're releasing today is one that takes the team a little off-guard, in a good way. Click the play button to hear how Deus Ex: Human Revolution game director Jean-Francois Dugas, lead narrative designer Mary DeMarle, and game designer Antoine Thisdale answer the question below.
"I have Asperger's syndrome, a form of autism. To me, the most interesting mechanical augmentation was CASIE. However, CASIE, not counting its pheremone emitter, actually made me worse at in-game interactions. I thought long and hard about why CASIE hindered me rather than help. I concluded that Adam's CASIE was calibrated for his non-autistic mind. For an autistic, CASIE, I imagined, would have to be specially calibrated for his or her autistic mind. Does that sound plausible?"
