** In a straighter example, the player character is Trestkon, the project lead.
*** Though this is more of a benevolent case of an EnforcedTrope, as the Lawrence "Trestkon" Laxdal didn't actually want to have himself represented as the main character, but the rest of the team convinced him.
** Then we have the Narcissus Entity, pretty much the embodiment of this trope for the entire dev team.

* AnticlimaxBoss: All of the bosses you fight are still human, and fights can result in this if you carry stuff like Vortex Grenades, [=LAWs=], GEP Guns...

* AnnoyingVideoGameHelper:[[invoked]] You can ask an NPC called Beeblequix to help you open a few doors in one area, but his primary function is to distract you with his inane comments about his favourite soaps, dead rat anecdotes and even some music while you are attempting tricky platforming sections. You are unable to quicksave during his remarks. This is deliberate and lampshaded when he points out it was SO ANNOYING when this sort of thing happened in Deus Ex.
** Thankfully you can turn down his help, and have the option to murder him [[AndYourLittleDogToo (and his cat)]] if he pushes you over the edge.

Naturally, the developers are fully aware of the ability to "grenade climb" and other oddities in the Deus Ex engine. They have been working on a 9-year-old game for over 7 years.



* GoodBadBugs: [[invoked]] (The real) Jonas has mentioned that an unimportant NPC sometimes accidentally provoked a particular robot into killing her while the player was in a conversation about whether or not that robot is able to kill at random. This "bug" was found too funny to remove.
** [[invoked]] Also before patch 1.0.1 Kashue will call Trestkon a "sick bastard" and attempt to kill Trestkon himself (as a moderator, he is immortal) if you kill anything in PDX... including fish or rats. This gets joked about in the patch notes.

*** Which explains why Guest forum goers look like tools and talk like they're high on helium.

The game is set in Forum City, a virtual representation of exactly that, a social internet forum. Forum City is a hub for myriad industries and social interaction, as the virtual forum has become the medium of choice for running society. This makes all the problems endemic to forums magnify a thousand-fold: flame wars are actual REAL wars fought between people of opposing ideologies, and crime committed in the forums is actual crime with real-life consequences. The Moderators of the forums, therefore, are powerful entities indeed, nigh-invulnerable beings with the power to stop anyone cold in the name of maintaining order.
