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.

An update after our demo release and hints at a contest!

Posted by on

Our release has gone exceedingly well! We continue the work after having over 10,000 downloads, answering lots of questions, and organizing feedback. We've managed to pick up some new talent along the way as well: much-needed mapping talent, modelers (static and character!), an AI coder, and texture talent.

For those of you that didn't know it, we are still looking for help in the direction of a rigger/animator.
If you're up to the task, head on over to the forums and let us know: Hexenmod.com

Some issues people reported have already been reworked, assets optimized, and bugs fixed. Work on the next hub is well underway, along with some initial concept design on Episode 2 - the Berserker. While working on that is still a long ways off, it's good to start laying down some groundwork while the mappers map the rest of Episode 1.

We have also been discussing some form of community contest. We have our own ideas, but we'd like to hear from the community to gather interest in such a thing. Post your thoughts and ideas here: Hexenmod.com

We hope everyone has enjoyed the project thus far! Many people worked long, hard, and for fun to bring out a release. As we move forward, we'll continue to post news, screenshots, and gather community feedback towards our next release.

A big thanks to our mirrors who did a fantastic job hosting our project. They supplied us with plenty of free bandwidth and stable connections. Thanks to all!


Excellent work guys!! An amazing release!

There is a fix for that crash that you will find on our forums, only some people have had it, all have had NVidia cards. Try the patch, it should work.
