Heretic Series Joins GOG.COM

GOG.COM announces that they've added the Heretic series of fantasy first-person shooters to their DRM-free marketplace. This anthology of Heretic: Shadow of the Serpent Riders, HeXen: Beyond Heretic, HeXen: Deathkings of the Dark Citadel, and HeXen II is available right here, launching with a 70% discount that makes the bundle just USD$2.99. Here's a refresher on Raven Software's series of DOOM- and QUAKE-engine games:
Not only does the series bring fun gameplay to the table, but it also helped usher in a new era of mechanics in the 2.5D shooter genre. Whereas many games of the time only allowed characters to look left and right, Heretic gave gamers the chance to look up and down, as well, making combat more dynamic AND more satisfying.

Past more control over your character’s aim, Heretic: Shadow of the Serpent Riders also gave gamers an early look at a staple of modern video games - an on-character inventory.

I was looking for Hexen 2 on gog after I realized the gamma slider was broken on the Steam version. I hope gog put more work into getting it to run correctly on modern systems because I'd like to give it another go round.
Have you tried Hexen II: Hammer of Thyrion port? Also included a link for PC Gaming Wiki if you haven't tried them yet.

Immediately snagged before you guys and your AI bots, buy them all up!

Thanks Acleacius ! Covetously snagged Hammer of Thyrion port !
