After a few years of 'on and off' working on the mod, which is supposed to be my take on what Hexen 2 should have looked like, I decided to release it once it is done. The progress was very slow at the beginning, however, releasing Trenchbroom map editor together with tools and ports, which made the mapping less painful, speeded up the process. The name is just a placeholder. No story, yet. The mod tries to be more like the first Hexen - gameplay wise - more monsters, more open spaces with large battles, funnier level design, while keeping the puzzles of the second.

The first HUB containing first 7 maps/levels is being tested this month. If not issues are present, I hope to release it by the end of this month.

Don't worry, it will. Can't say if in the same scope as intended, but the first HUB is mostly done, only waiting for items/monsters placement. The second HUB is missing only 1 map to be complete as well.

looking forward to this. currently working with the latest ftequake engine, and it's working great. i may be wrong but i'm suspicious trenchbroom would let you map with the level of detail of wrath aeon of ruin. from the screenshots it looks like your architecture work is 1st class.

I'm not a huge fan of the Heretic stained glass in that one shot (the Hexen II palette conversion doesn't do it any favors and the overall Heretic style was more cartoonish than the Hexen II textures) but aside from that all the shots look ace.

I hope you manage to complete this.

Thanks for the feedback. It all depends on my free time. Even if I do not realise all my plans, I do have enough material right now to release a decent hub. And I will, otherwise all the time I spent to create this was wasted.
