Deus Hex Machina

Akira meets The Matrix. The Name of the Rose meets Johnny Mneumonic.

Deus Hex Machina is the story of Isidore RAM, a hacker working as a sister for the the Church of Technology and a mysterious code fragment that leads her from the GRID into the real world of a dystopic cyberpunk Orange County as she searches for the truth behind the death of her mentor. Along the way she connects with a mech riding gang leader who is more interested in selling the artifacts Isidore is looking for than studying them. Together they must answer the most important question of their lives: What is Cri-Lux?
