While you were battling the evil forces of D'Sparil, the other Serpent Riders were busy sowing the seeds of destruction in other dimensions. One such dimension is the decaying world where Hexen takes place. A world littered with the mangled corpses of nonbelievers and inhabited by the undead followers that executed them. Only three humans &endash; a warrior, a mage and a cleric &endash; have escaped the leaders' vicious spell. Now these brave souls have sworn to crush the evil regime that threatens to destroy the world forever. Separated upon entering the mystical portal, the three are forced to attempt on their own what they had hoped to do together: find Korax's stronghold, destroy him and restore order in the physical world.

(Backdated News Post 26/11/2016 - Original Post HERE)

The time has finally come to announce the first of my 2 big projects that I’ve been secretly working on over the last 2 years, Quest for Glory IV 3D!

QFG4 3D is a total conversion single player 19 map mod for the classic game Hexen with the ZDoom enhancement. The mod contains new levels, textures, decoration, weapons, monsters, NPCs, cutscenes, music & sounds taking players on an old-school linear 3D action adventure set in the world and story of the great classic Sierra game Quest for Glory IV – Shadows of Darkness. I worked on QFG4 3D to retrain myself in Doom editing skills so I could return to my old labor of love, the Star Trek Doom Project (GZDoom Doom 2 mod).

Before anyone else says it I’d like to say that QFG4 doesn’t need to be in 3D, nor is my project an attempt to convert every single part of the game to 3D (if you want to do everything in QFG4 then go play QFG4 haha). I created QFG4 3D just for fun and to see if I could actually do it lol. Plus it was rather fun to create new areas/views not seen in the original game (eg I show more of the town & give you 360 degree views of each original game location). So if others happen to enjoy this project too then that’s a bonus, but if you’re not a fan of retro gaming & graphics then this probably isn’t going to be of much interest to you.

I used the old Hexen/Doom engine as I lack the graphic & programming talents to use a modern game engine, plus I wanted it to retain the look at feel of the era when QFG4 came out. However the ZDoom/GZDoom extension updates the old engine quite a bit to use true 3D, OpenGL effects & now in 2016 it even supports VR! So if you ever wanted to walk around Mordavia as if you’re there then this is your chance (at least until someone else does a much better job haha).

Hope you enjoy this first demo below. Be warned that it will likely be a long time before there’s another demo, I’ve spent nearly 2 years on these 2 projects and have sacrificed a lot. I’m burnt out & want to do other things, including getting back to PLAYING games instead of making them lol!



For more information, more screenshots, downloads, animations+descriptions of all weapons & monsters you’ll face check out my QFG4 3D website here:

Go buy some Hexen, then download GZDoom on Mac. If you don't have OpenGL requirements for GZDoom, then download ZDoom.

I agree, between the gothic buildings and the incredible (and sometimes impossible) sights of the outdoor levels, Hexen definitely pulls off some of the most awe inspiring views of old-school fps games.

The Hexen games feel much more fun and better put together than the Heretic games, at least to me.

Heretic's extension of two more episodes still wasn't good enough, they didn't even bother to add a new boss or any boss at all, they just felt mostly like extra filler.

Man, what I would give to see the modding scene for this (and DooM) up and running again.

It was kinda always up and running. But now its more underground and finding real life friends who are into it is tough. I actually have a few who are into it like I am.
