    Play as Zan, a half Orc half Demon warrior in an old school shooter DOOM II total conversion. Slay factions of Cultists and Chaotic Demons in a totally unique fantasy world. Wield an arsenal of magical weapons, explore, solve puzzles and fight along-side Orcs, Goblins, Minotaurs and Dwarves.

    Note: Hedon is still under development
