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.
Brief update on puzzle talk and NPC. Screenshots included.

Welcome again to our monthly news post! We're going to keep it short this month with just a brief update. As has been the case since release much of the team has been working away on just about everything and you can see our daily additions to the build that we feed to our twitter account. Be sure to check it out.
Most recently we've started sorting out puzzles and details for Roden's Library as the level has progressed very nicely. Some structural shots below, the level has seen items and monsters ready for balancing this earlier this month. Puzzles, quests, and story elements have started being planned out just this week!
Also fresh from the studio just the other day, we have finished recording the dialogue for our next character encounter. None other than Roden himself. What he has to say is of utmost importance and our Cleric would be wise to listen.
Like always, feel free to stop by our forums or join IRC for a chat. We've had some increased activity lately which is always welcome. See you next month!
