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.
