Hedon for Windows
Not Available
Hedon is a mix of classic and modern action-adventure game running on the GZDoom Engine and bearing bits of inspiration from titles such as Hexen, Unreal, Thief or Arx Fatalis.
Custom Hedon

➣ Large, sprawling levels that show no mercy or hand-holding for the player. Exploring, hunting secrets, backtracking, patience and having to figure out what to do next is key. Monsters and pickups are hand-placed and vary according to the difficulty you play on.

➣ Original story packed with lots of lore and a focus on subtle details and world building, all doubled by a strong atmosphere inspired by titles such as Arx Fatalis, Unreal and Thief.

➣ Gory, fast paced shooting, a solid arsenal of weapons and magic items. Combat is projectile-based, movement is essential, enemies are unique and vary in type and abilities. Experiment with weapons and items and improve your skills to face every challenge!

➣ Original soundtrack ranging from tense to serene ambient, with occasional bursts of metal. All spiced up with a few Alexander Brandon tracks that never released in Unreal and Deus Ex!

➣ Thousands of hours of work put into an original concept, story, digitally hand-drawn graphics, scripting, sound effects and level design, all by a one man dev team aiming to create a purely hand-crafted game and experience.

➣ Over eight hours of good old singleplayer action with five difficulties including Brutalizing, which changes the gameplay to allow interesting second playthroughs (different fights & pick-ups, companions etc.) and Bearzerk, which radically changes the combat by replacing guns with new melee weapons.

➣ Thicc orcs.

➣ No DRM. You buy it, you own it.

Custom Philosophy
Hedon is built upon elements of classic game design, most importantly the idea that the player needs to be treated with maturity by the game, which should never function as an automatic gratification machine, and require a degree of investment to be fully enjoyed.

Custom Gameplay
You will be dropped in a hostile world that has its own workings, characters and intrigues, and you will be expected to fend for yourself. The build up is slow and steady, the story is simple but consistent, the combat is fast paced and ruthless. You will sometimes find yourself lost in a non linear level design with various aesthetics (forest, caves, forge, barracks, snowy mountain etc.) where exploration and learning by yourself is the key to improve.

You may find that Hedon takes a certain amount of atmosphere, gameplay, color and inspiration from games such as Unreal, Blood, Thief, Arx Fatalis, Serious Sam etc. but nonetheless aims to be authentic at all times.

Custom Story
You play as Zan, a half Orc - half Demon warrior who, after suffering a hellish vision, wakes up in an abandoned mine, with no memory of how she ended up there. The story will focus on our hero's descent into a strange underground world which is threatened by the sudden attack of a massive Cultist force.

There are many characters and interests caught in the conflict.

Custom ZanTiatiDura

The Iron Division
A faction of amazon-like Orcs and Goblins, the Iron Division are the keepers of Hedon's greatest secret - crystal technology. Various magical crystals sprawl across the underground, providing energy, heat, oxygen and often forming entire biomes around them. Combining this power with crafting and the ancient art of magic, the Iron Division has founded a whole new civilization within their mountain stronghold known as Valc.

The Cultists
Fallen to sin, the raving husks of what were once human now worship various figures of the Underworld. Little can be done to cull their addiction to pain and suffering. Little but a spray of frag fire or an explosive bolt that is...

The Demons
Chaotic Demons dwell in the deepest parts of Hedon, lashing out at the weaker minds of the inhabitants of the Overworld. Along the ages, they have subdued entire towns to become their cultist slaves and feed their endless hunger through pain and suffering. Demons only care about feeding, and they will stop at nothing to do so.

The Earthborn
Ancient dwellers of the underground, Minotaurs and Dwarves have built their own civilizations, ever clenched in warfare with the Demons spawning from below. However, their great cities and heritage were lost hundreds of years after their inevitable defeat in front of Hell's armies, and now they have been scattered and forced to live in small clans and towns.

Custom Collaboration

Akhzul - Hedon's OST dedicated composer. A one guitar man band.

Alexander Brandon - The man himself. I bought few licenses for some of his personal tracks (and other songs that didn't make it in Deus Ex/Unreal) and fit them into Hedon!

Breathelast - A band of underground sharks who pitched in with instrumental tracks of their songs. Also one of my favorite bands ever.

Methadone Skies - Another solid band from the underground, guilty of creating dreamlike musical atmosphere.

Shivaxi & Xenofish - 5 Michelin Star chef and his cool friend who made an awesome remix for Alexander Brandon's Underworld.

Rachael - hGZDoom Engine fork programming and compilation.

Daerandin (Daniel Jenssen) - Linux version compilation and testing.
