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.

Well now, you all know what day it is........... Release Day! It's that special day where we gather all the lil' Afrit children who we have raised so lovingly, take them out to the wild, and let them fly away to burn the countryside to ashes. Ahh, that smoky smell is so bittersweet. Oh, and we're releasing our first demo today too. Also exciting!!

We all hope everyone enjoys themselves today while playing through the first release of Hexen: Edge of Chaos. It's been a lot of work, with many an argument and certainly lots of fun. The mod community lives and dies by the fans and the gamers, so play and spread the news to everyone you know: Hexen is an integral part of a well-balanced diet!

The Gates Are Soon to Open... Engulfed

We'd certainly love to have your feedback, good and bad. We plan on future releases and additional content, so constructive criticism will help us refine gameplay even further. So don't be shy, register at our forums, and join the community!

Speaking of the future: if you are a developer, we are looking for you! Primarily, our most dire needs are level designers, AI programmers, character modelers, and animators. For anyone else, please feel free to contact us as well since an extra pair (or pairs) of hands in other departments are always welcome.

Extra thanks as well to id software for id tech 4 as well as Raven Software and Activision!

Cheers all, and happy gaming!

*Note to all ATI users. We recommend turning off Catalyst A.I. while playing.
