    Avoiding all the jesters, it's a videogame mod for Deus Ex.

    Its site is here:

    No really, I was. Hey Bremy, is there any initiation that the Cassandra Project will be completed?

    No, it's dead. Dead as dead can be. Find the earlier thread in this forum for a host of hints as to where the plot was going to go..

    And then go back and play it one more time for nostaligia value.

    I thought it might be. How sad. It started off so well! And dosen't that mean that this forum should be - not deleted - but thrown into the archives?

    EDIT:

    Brem X Jones
    None of us are the same person who made Cassandra. As I think I may have said upthread, Cassandra was a direct response to me having a particularly horrific break up with a girlfriend. Other people had break-up poems or songs to write. I tried to channel the emotions into the game, with Charlotte as my clear avatar of insecurity (Which I didn't really entirely understand until having done it for a few months. Most of Charlotte's speeches to her Exs are just gender switched me). The basic theme of Cassandra's staff - expressed by Anna: "First rate at their jobs, distinctly third rate as human beings" - was what bothered me. That's pretty much how I considered myself, and most of my friends and lovers. Cassandra was processing all that. And since I don't feel that way anymore, I feel it'll come across insincere if I kept the same timbre. If we *did* pick it up, it'd have to change to fit our new instincts and loves.
    Fcuk.

    Oh, don't worry. Life is life.

    And if it were not life it would be death, and as it was so well put in the movie Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are dead:

    Guildenstern: No.
    Rosencrantz: Nor do I, really. It's silly to be depressed by it. I mean, one thinks of it like being alive in a box. One keeps forgetting to take into account the fact that one is dead, which should make all the difference, shouldn't it? I mean, you'd never *know* you were in a box, would you? It would be just like you were asleep in a box. Not that I'd like to sleep in a box, mind you. Not without any air. You'd wake up dead for a start, and then where would you be? In a box. That's the bit I don't like, frankly. That's why I don't think of it. Because you'd be helpless, wouldn't you? Stuffed in a box like that. I mean, you'd be in there forever, even taking into account the fact that you're dead. It isn't a pleasant thought. Especially if you're dead, really. Ask yourself, if I asked you straight off, "I'm going to stuff you in this box. Now, would you rather be alive or dead?" naturally, you'd prefer to be alive. Life in a box is better than no life at all, I expect. You'd have a chance, at least. You could lie there thinking, "Well, at least I'm not dead. In a minute somebody is going to bang on the lid, and tell me to come out."
    (bangs on lid)
    Rosencrantz: "Hey you! What's your name? Come out of there!"
    Guildenstern: (long pause) I think I'm going to kill you.

    Not sure how that actually relates to the topic, but the movie has been playing recently and thatís a great bit worthy of sharing.
