Exclusive: Serious Sam 3 Headless Kamikaze

By John Walker on July 8th, 2011 at 12:01 pm.

It's good to personalise the infinite screaming hordes.

Here’s something you’re seeing here first. A new trailer for Serious Sam 3 BFE, following the life of one of the game’s many headless kamikazes. Because that’s the correct way to trail an old-school shooter – a documentary about a headless man with bombs for hands. We’re all agreed on that. So head below to take a world exclusive peek at the new video.

A leaked document explains the purpose of the video:

“In preparation for the launch of Serious Sam 3: BFE, Mental’s Horde (NYSE: MNTL) has announced a plan to fill over five billion henchmen positions that have opened up since the release of Serious Sam HD. While admitting company morale is low after a decade of defeat at the hands of Serious Sam representatives, the Horde have confirmed that the organization will be redoubling their efforts to take down their longtime nemesis.”

The company’s HR director apparently said,

“We’re seeking recruits for every division from Headless Kamikazes and Scrapjacks, to accounting and risk management. But honestly we’ll accept anyone with a high school education and the willingness to have their head surgically removed.”

    Brett was a good man. Knew him personally, used to have a really big nose that we made fun of in the office before he joined up.

  6. DeathHamsterDude says:

    Is anyone else getting a major Modern Family feel to that trailer? I don’t really know much about that show, but from seeing it on in the background it looks pretty similar.

    Also yay Sam!

  7. ZIGS says:

    I hope they do more House of Sam trailers for Serious Sam 3

    This is the kind of marketing I can get behind, I just hope the game can live up to it.

    They can’t really fail can they. Can they?

      2 gun limit, QTE’s and a four hour campaign. And no quicksave. Blood on eyes injury, rooms of waist high walls, regening health. NPC companions that invariably get in the way and do nothing or do everything. Either one is bad.

      Not saying they’ll do any of this though, just… I’m fucking jaded. But I have faith in Serious Sam.

      But how can it survive this modern shooter led market without those game enhancing features?
      Well strike this one off my to buy list.

    • Bhazor says:

      Well given the games tag line is “No cover. All man” I’d say chest high walls will be banished.

    • drplote says:

      They’ll make up for it all with 6005 polygons per krundle.

    • mwoody says:

      Darkelp: because you seem to have missed the joke, I’ll go ahead and ruin it lest you mistakenly avoid this game: he’s talking about Duke Nukem, not Serious Sam 3.

      Thank you Mwoody, however I must admit my response was in a sarcastic tone and I will be buying this game.

    • mwoody says:

      *sigh* Sorry ’bout that, I’ll get my sarcasm detector adjusted.

      No need to apologise my friend, I didn’t take offence. It’s all good.

      Always bet on Sam.

  10. Echo Black says:

    That was actually pretty funny. Really like Serious Sam’s retarded brand of humor

  11. Oneironaut says:

    Serious Sam has the best promotional material. Magicka is good, but still only manages second place.

  12. Strangeblades says:

    Serious Sam will save us all. From what I have no idea but Serious Sam will save us. Yeah. That sounds good. This is the kind of idea I can get behind. But not behind Serious Sam. Like not standing behind Serious Sam. ‘Cause that’s kinda weird and it would probably make him nervous.

    ….

    I should get back to work.

  13. JuJuCam says:

    If only we could talk to… oh… ok…

  14. Alphabet says:

    But how do they smell?

  15. geldonyetich says:

    Do you know?

    85% of headless kamikazes used to work in telemarketing.

    It’s true!

    • frenchy2k1 says:

      And them moving to headless kamikaze was both a promotion AND made them less annoying.

      FACT!

  16. Prince says:

    More of this kind of thing, please1

    This is silly PR done right, not by introducing every video with farts and pissing noises.

    Excellently, excellently done. Well done Croteam
