Scene Selection #1: Jensen’s Apartment

Jensen apartment

In this week’s pilot of Scene Selection, we look at the significance of environmental storytelling and atmosphere in Adam Jensen’s apartment, the augmented protagonist of Square Enix’s cyberpunk, philosophical neo-thriller Deus Ex Human Revolution.

Adam Jensen has faced death, struggled with mechanic limbs and leave’s his apartment in the same state as any student flat (or ‘dorm’ for you Americans). We examine the tragic beauty of Jensen’s backstory through subtly suggestive environmental details such as the broken mirror, the obsessive need for posted notes and blue prints, and even a lot of cereal… Yeah, you can get some meaning out of that.
