heXen:Edge of Chaos will be a new and free game, based on the original Hexen game which was developed by id Software and Raven Software. Edge of Chaos is being developed by a team of fans who have always loved the original Hexen since it came out. In fact, most of us spent countless hours with the entire series. When id Software released Doom3, we immediately saw immense potential in the engine itself; the 'Hell' maps gave us the inspiration to make a hack-and-slash game based, primarily, on the original Hexen.
Inside the zip package are instructions on how to apply the unified GNU Patch file to an unmodified Doom 3 SDK 1.3.1 installation on either Windows or Linux (Mac is *theoretically* the same) to attain the complete sources for the first Hexen: Edge of Chaos release. As a note: we use MS Visual C++ 2008 Express to build this in Windows, and GCC 4.4 on Linux.
