Here is a preview of what there will be in this version, the 3rd attack for transformations!

3rd attacks for transformations:

• Swamp Serpent: Poison Gas. He throws a projectile that will create a cloud gas which will damage enemies who get too close.
• Stone Breaker: Falling Stalactites. He throws a projectile that causes stalactites to fall from the ceiling.
• Hell Burner: Fireball nova. Flames erupt from his body out to enemies in all directions.
• Wyvern: Quick Dash. He darts into enemies and pushes them away.

Is there any planned linux port of HON or a way to use GZDoom to play it? I purchased the full game but am currently playing the windows version via wine...much better to use a native port.

Not sure where you bought it from, but the Steam version has a Linux native build.

Though as I understand, the game should work with a plain GZDoom build too; edit gzdoom.ini and add an IWADSearch.Directories path that points to the directory where HandsOfNecromancy.ipk3, handsofnecromancy.pk3, and the other hon*.pk3 files are.

Sorry I saw this and I guess I was in a rush when I read it because I didn't respond sooner.

GOG's QA team had problems with our Linux build (missing dependencies) so we did not publish one for the initial GOG release. You can download this and combine it with the Windows files to make a proper GOG Linux version of the game, but that's a stopgap to a real solution to the problem. A few of GZDoom's dependencies (most importantly, SDL2) are required in order for it to load, and if you want sound you'll need OpenAL-Soft installed as well. For Ubuntu the packages should be labeled libopenal1 and libsdl2. If I am missing anything sorry, my memory might be a bit spacey. I know Steam installs all the required packages automatically though, because it's part of the install script that it runs on every Linux system. (Admittedly we're a bit spoiled by that, who knew?)

Unfortunately for the GOG release it looks like the only real viable option for a portable installation is an AppImage but that is something I haven't had a chance to look into yet or resolve. A proper Linux release is planned for GOG, though, but I will have to coordinate with their QA team in order to do that.

Easy Exploration mode available!
The Easy Exploration mode is available on the Beta Branch of the game, you have to choose "Beta" and redownload the game.

Beta Branch option:

What is the Easy Hubs mode?

The "Easy Hubs" mode is made for people who want to spend more their time at shooting,
you have to play a map 1 time (or more if you want explore it again to get items), there is 4 keys per hub (not 6) and each map of the hubs has 1 key to find, once you get the 4 keys, you can come back to the hub last portal and leave the hub.
No more lot of come back to do to finish the hubs.

Transformations items are in the maps where you need them to finish the map.
It's like a linear progression but with a hub where you can choose the order of the maps.

In the "Classic Hubs" mode, its the original game mode, you will have to do some come back in the maps to open the doors who are locked with a key who can be in another map. This mode is for people who want also focus on exploration.

2.1.0 "Easy Hubs" update

"The "Easy Hubs" mode of Hands of Necromancy is now live! If you want focus less on an exploration hexen-like but something closer to heretic/doom, this mode is for you, in each of the 4 maps of the hubs, you have 1 key to find, once you get all the 4 keys, you go back to the hub to open the exit to the next map!
Progression is more linear in that way except you choose the first maps you want to play in the hubs!"

With 2 new musics! (in map13 and 14)
