Patch #8

Getting close to one month after launch! Whew! The pace of these patches is slowing down as the bugs are becoming less severe/urgent.

  • Added small EXP bars in Chandrelle's flashback to show how close a character is to the next level.
  • Fixed: Tarot cards getting erased when using chapter select. Now you can have "The Inn" card read without hacking the save.
  • Fixed: It was possible to screw up your save file by killing all the pixel raiders in Rust's flashback with the secret cheats.
  • Fixed: Some older dialogue from Chandrelle in the Six Pint that gave the wrong directions to her guest room.
  • Fixed: An issue in Lazarus' chapter in the scene where Super Weasel Kid is beneath the surface.
  • Other minor bug fixes and improvements.

Thanks for playing!

Patch #7

Patch #7

  • Added another extra chapter select button for Lazarus' flashback.
  • Fixed: "Ice Cold" achievement not unlocking after using chapter select.
  • Fixed: When ending Rust's chapter with the headlamp equipped, it was supposed to return to the wardrobe in Chandrelle's room. This was broken until now.
  • Fixed: Removed a debug command that made its way into the game.
  • Fixed: It was possible to replace more than one of your abilities with Jack's "Ankh Storm" spell.
  • Rather than Jack simply not appearing in the R&D department if you gave him 100% real ankhs, he now appears to thank you before letting you past unharmed.
  • Minor bug fixes.

Thanks again to everyone who has posted on the forums and emailed me regarding bugs!

“A game that defies me to tell you anything about it, not that I’m convinced you’d believe me if I did.”
Rock Paper Shotgun

“The Hex is a poignant, witty, cleverly written adventure spanning six protagonists and six very different – but smartly cohesive – stories.”
Jim Sterling

“I’m just gonna cut to the chase: The Hex is this year’s Frog Fractions, Undertale, or—perhaps most aptly, given that it’s from the same creator—Pony Island.”

About This Game

In a creaky old tavern, in a forgotten corner of the video game universe, a storm is raging. The barkeep gets a patchy phone call. It's hard to tell what the caller is saying, but this much is clear: someone in The Six Pint Inn is planning a murder.

There are six patrons; all of them are video game protagonists trying to escape their past... But The Six Pint Inn has a way of bringing back old memories. Each flashback plays out in an entirely different genre, sometimes blending multiple. By exploring these memories you may discover the identity of the murderer... or you may learn much darker secrets.

In The Hex you will...

  • Control the six patrons and explore The Six Pint Inn
  • Delve into the memories of these cast-aside game protagonists to learn the truth of their past
  • Learn the identity of the would-be murderer... as well as the victim

The Hex takes roughly 6 hours to complete on the first playthrough.
