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.

Digging through the source and filling in all of the holes on our move to a free, standalone game.

Posted by HexenEdgeOfChaos on Dec 22nd, 2011

For anyone who has stopped by our twitter page lately you probably know that we've been making solid progress on moving the project to a standalone, free game. Our programmer, Solarsplace, has been hard at work getting all the code, scripts, and defs all set up for quite some time now. Mr. Rocket has been hard at work creating any needed art to fill in some of our lingering holes.

Fortunately for the majority of the project we kept fairly strict rules of avoiding anything from Doom 3 as much as we possibly could throughout the development of the project. While some things inevitably inherited Doom 3 things, the amount has been incredible low compared to what it could have been. This has made our move progress at a rather fast pace. We'll have some more detailed information on that next month when we hopefully are in the final stages of the move. We'll continue to be posting small updates via twitter until then, so be sure to check us out!

Also recently we posted a track from our new composer Mystic Realmz. It's one of his first, complete tracks and is already being used with more on the way. The whole team is quite excited with all the new music!

excellent soundtrack, it matches the type of game.
Good to know the progress and you're taking out doom 3 dependencies, that could be hard but still.
Keep going guys, your mod is absolute.
