    Pretty sure those Hexens and Heretics are DRM free on Steam anyway, but for $2.99 fuck it. CONSUME PRODUCT.

    No exaggeration, Abe's Exoddus is one of the best games of all times and definitely in my top 10. I probably replayed it a hundred times, might even be able to speedrun it possibly - at least a glitchless run.

    It's one of those infinitely fun games. Some of the later Zulags are such a joy to play, especially the ones where you can possess the Glukkon bureaucrats to give orders around and solve the puzzles. Incredible game.

    And the very first gud old gayme they release right after the Devotion controversy is called "heretic", not only the CCP is in full control of CD Projekt, they're also sending a message of dominance to the christian west too. Better wake up while you still can, cattle.

    It's basically a high quality Doom reskin. Even most of the weapons in their base mode map onto the Doom weapons. That said it does have some fun additions like Tome of Power, and the sheer number of weapons you have considering the Tome sometimes drastically changes how they work is very impressive. The levels were designed by Raven instead of id, so they don't quite feel the same, but they were excellent too and I sometimes enjoy the less abstract approach in Heretic (especially E1). If you want more Doom, or wished Doom had fantasy trappings, it's definitely worth it.

    Hexen is in many way a better game, but it's also very different from Doom/Heretic.

    There is 'The Ultimate patch for the Steam version of Hexen 2' that includes 'Portal of Praevus'. I bet it works just fine with GOG version:

    https://hexenworld.org/downloads/archive/KUBA18i/

    Features:
    - Compatible 100% with modern Windows, both 32-bit and 64-bit!
    - You have an easy to use interface to access every Hexen 2, Hexen World, mods and dedicated servers from a single place! No need to go into folders or play with command line parameters!
    - Uses Hammer of Thyrion, probably the best source port of Hexen 2 around. Includes countless bug fixes(no more irritating crashes!), ability to change resolution within the game(no playing with parameters needed!), ability to scale HUD and text for higher resolutions(no more pain in trying to read what's on the screen!), folder based MP3/OGG music support(no CD needed for music), and it is fully compatible with vanilla saves and mods, so it's quite purist friendly.
    - Includes a fancy new title screen! There's one for the base game and one for the expansion! If you dislike it though, you can just delete "Hexen 2/data1/Autoexec.cfg" and "Hexen 2/portals/autoexec.cfg". It's only a demo that plays when you boot the game, so it's not really purist unfriendly or anything.
    - No more stupid silence! Hexen 2 has MIDI music, but it's really not as good and atmospheric as CD music, so after hearing CD songs you will not want to go back to using MIDI. This patch contains them.
    - Includes the missing expansion pack, that's not included in the Steam version!
    - Includes every map or modification for Hexen 2/HexenWorld ever made(well, at least every one I managed to find)! Mods can be easily accessed from my custom menu, no command line parameters needed!
    - Bonus videos and other files included! The "Extras" folder contains the missing intro to this game, make sure to watch it sometime!
    - Expanded "help" files! Now includes list of commands, Official FAQ and Mission Pack help!
    - Setting up multiplayer games is much easier now!

    It's like a fantasy Doom, but the enemies are more bullet spongy. Try Hexen instead. Or stick to Doom.

    Got their email, but I can't seem to be able to claim it from the site. Link throws me to their specials page and when searching for the game it list it with a discounted price instead of the giveaway.

    Just sends me to their specials list. Maybe because I'm doing it on a mobile.

    Thanks for the warning it was on my unofficial wish list.

    Kinda weird that i feel guilty for getting it for free.
    Like i cheated the devs or something. Will probably do something about that when my gaming funds improve.

    How do I stop GOG Galaxy from trying to force the Revision mod for Deus Ex 1 on me every time I start Galaxy? I've unchecked automatic updates and the mod, but it still does it.
