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.
Small update on current department workings with a few WIP map layout shots included.

It's been 2 months since our big Roden update(which had some great feedback!) and it's been quite busy since! We bring only a small update this time around. All departments continue on their tasks. We have 2 maps ready for play and 4 currently in difference phases of development.
Maxetormer has alredy sent in some animations for Roden along with another character model on the way from our other 3d artist, andy_a. New textures and fixes to old ones continue from Mr. Rocket while squeezing in some mapping as well now. We've finally(!) fixed several troubling code bugs that have plagued us since release thanks to the hard work of solarsplace. Music has been streaming on in from our semi-recently acquired composer.
All in all we've been progressing very nicely. Below we're showing 2 very WIP shots of h3m1 and h3m2 in their layout phase in progress by ShadoW and Mr. Rocket respectively. Until next month, where we plan to display more goodies, happy gaming!
