Welcome to my new Patreon page!
Here is where you can free handedly support the revival of the long lost art of FPS making, by tagging along this ass kicking 0 budget passion project.

ModDB/Download

The Game
Hedon is a total conversion Doom 2 mod/standalone game that runs on the GZDoom engine. Gameplay wise, it is similar in style and features to Build Engine games such as Duke Nukem, Shadow Warrior or Blood.
By dropping a hunky half Orc half Demon into an underground universe filled with evil cultists and monsters I want to make full use of the timeless formula of an old school shooter. Mature level design and focus on gameplay, maps that vary in aesthetics and concept, engaging monsters and weapons, freedom of approach within a limited, well defined environment and so on...

Some Interesting Gaming Critique
Here are some links you might find related to my general concerns for the gaming industry today.
Dom Giuca - Thief vs. AAA Gaming
Chubzdoomer - If Doom was Done Today

The Creator
I am a one man dev team handling both art and code (the game's soundtrack is composed by my friend, Akhzul, and some extra bands that have been so kind as to pitch in with some tracks).
I have started developing the game in October 2016, and will probably do so for a very long while on.

Although the game does not depend on a budget or crowd funding, I greatly appreciate your support and feedback, and your donations definitely help me speed up development and invest myself more and more in this project. Every bit of your interest helps me improve the game.

Software used:
Engine: GZDoom
Coding/Scripting/Resource Management: SLADE3
Level Design: GZDoom Builder
Graphic Design (Textures, Sprites, Animations etc.): Adobe Photoshop Elements 8
3D Modelling: Blender
Sound Editing/Recording: Audacity
