Just finished it. I wasn't expecting it to be so ambitious!
A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
From the creator of Pony Island...
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.
“A game that defies me to tell you anything about it, not that I’m convinced you’d believe me if I did.”
"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."

Just played through this, and I'm mindblown. I loved the take on many different genres. The bad guy was an awful, awful person, in a good story kind of way.
7/5 would buy again
I already bought this on Steam, but I just want to say that this game is excellent.
Surprising dark & enjoyable game.
I liked the mysteries and the take on the different game areas.
hello daniel, will you release pony island on itch??
