Map 1 - The Obsidian Tower
Map 2 - The Abandoned City
Map 3 - Wanderlust
Map 4 - The Buried Temple

Map 7 - The Chaos Realm Part 2
Map 8 - The Chaos Realm Part 3
I started working on this megawad in the middle of 2019. I made the very first room at the very beginning. However I got a computer virus called Maze Ransomware that encrypted half of my data and the .wad file with the room was among them. I had only one screenshot from the room and nothing else.
Couple months later, at the end of the 2019, I simply made the room again out of my memory and based on the screenshot. And because of my Maze Ransomware experience I thought I had better back-up the .wad file after almost every single change I made.
Eventually I made the whole megawad. The sixth map should be one huge map, however due to vanilla Hexen limits, the node builder suddenly can't handle it anymore and as a result, you could noclip in the map without noclip. So I separated the map into the three smaller maps.
I decided to call it Penumbra. Lots of people were salty about my previous names for my .wads like "Fucking Hexen" and "It's Real and It Kills AKA Everything Sucks!", so this time I used Penumbra. Too bad there is already a computer game called Penumbra, but it's actually a physical term. If an object casts a shadow, the shadow usually consists of three parts. Umbra, antumbra and penumbra. Umbra is where the shadow is darkest, while atumbra is the brigtest. Penumbra is in the middle.
So anyway, here it is, my new megawad for Hexen. They're rather tiny little projects and can be beaten within an hour.
To run this use ZDoom.
