Hexen on Modern Linux

There is a Linux binary housed at Hexen II: Hammer of Thyrion. It is in the Mageia repositories and can be installed using urpmi. The binary gets installed in /usr/bin and the rest of the game files and documents can be found in /user/games/hexen2.

I have not yet experienced Hexen2 since I don't have the retail version. The installer only installs the game engine, so I've purchased an original game CD from eBay to extract the game data files.

The Heretic DOS games can be obtained form the AbandonwareDOS site for Heretic and Beyond Heretic.

Doomsday is an advanced port of the Doom game engine, capable also of running Heretic, and Hexen games.
