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.
To help us with some intricate coding issues, and help us keep momentum in the development, we are searching for a lead programmer that has experience with C or the Doom 3 SDK and the Doom 3 engine. As Lead Programmer you'll be responsible for all assets of the coding and scripting, maintaining quality control and working with our current team of two coders to fix our coding issues.
You'll be in contact with the teamlead and coordinator and divide and assign the coding work that needs to be done to the other coders. You'll also be responsible for keeping progress in the coding work at a steady rate. And ofcourse, last but not least: You'll be creating some amazing features that we've wanted to see in game for a long, long, time.
What do we offer?
We offer a position in a team that works on a prestigious Total Conversion. Several other members have had the opportunity to end up doing their dreamjob for a gaming company using this TC as a stepping stone into the world of gaming. Hexen:Edge of Chaos is well respected among developers and fans and it's the perfect opportunity to get real life experience with working on a professional quality title.
Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like Hexen: Edge Of Chaos. We love games like Doom III that have opened themselves up to modding. Because of communities like Workshop, Nexus, Curse, RTSL, GameBanana and Mod DB, more games support modding today than ever before.
Let's celebrate modding
As mods play a bigger role in the future of gaming, we believe it is important to recognize the effort the teams behind the work put in, giving us countless hours of enjoyment while asking nothing in return. We have the power to change our games and that needs to be celebrated to ensure it remains a big part of PC gaming's future.
It all started
In 2015, when the paid modding dispute left many gamers and modders worried about the direction the industry is headed. Things have since settled down, but we believe it is important to continue this small tradition to show we are not alone in our love for mods, and the open platforms that embrace them.
Mod Appreciation Week
Nothing is more motivating than knowing something you've built is being enjoyed by others. So this week if there is a mod you love on Mod DB (or anywhere else), make the effort to shout out to them, mention and link their mod in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post with the hashtag #modlove2016 (or click the icons above for a pre-built post).
