New Serious Sam Made By Serious Fans Seriously On Steam

By Nathan Grayson on May 1st, 2014.

Ever had one of those days where it feels like you're  on the moon having all your blood forcibly removed by a large man who won't stop cracking terrible one-liners? Yeah, me too

We should be seeing and hopefully playing Serious Sam 4 by the end of this year, but until then you’ll just have to make do with fan remakes of the series’ first two games with an entire new campaign, bosses, an upgraded engine, 64-bit compatibility, Steam trading cards, and buzzword buzzword buzz buzz buzz I am a bee. It’s a bit odd given that Croteam already released remakes of its own in Serious Sam HD, but here we are. The team at Alligator Pit has Croteam’s full support, so it’s not like anyone is stepping on anybody else’s toes. Serious Sam Classics: Revolution is now on Steam Early Access, and you can see it in action below.

So Many Sams: Indie Royale Gets Serious

By Adam Smith on January 24th, 2012.

On the left, press releases about bundles. On the right, the men of RPS.

How many bundles are there? So many bundles. And here’s another from the folks at Indie Royale. This time it’s what they’re calling a Lightning bundle, perhaps because it falls outside their normal release schedule. These types of bundle will, I believe, focus on one series or developer and for the first it’s Serious Sam. So, what do you get?

Serious Sam’s DRM Is A Giant Pink Scorpion

By John Walker on December 7th, 2011.

This is actually what Ubisoft's DRM developers look like.

Some companies’ DRM is stupidly cruel, punishing only those who have legitimately purchased the game, and not those who pirate it. Well, most companies’ DRM is that. Serious Sam 3’s DRM is brilliantly cruel, punishing only those who pirated it. By relentlessly pursuing them with a giant invincible armoured scorpion. As revealed by Dark Side Of Gaming, only those who unlawfully duplicate the game encounter this immortal enemy, who haunts them from the opening moments. You can see it in action below.

Wot I Think: Serious Sam: Double D

By Adam Smith on September 8th, 2011.

Outtakes from Alice: Madness Returns

Serious Sam: Double D is the side-scrolling indie spinoff to the irreverent FPS series. Sort of like the inverse of a ‘90s shareware sidescroller evolving into an irreverent FPS series, with continued 2D spinoffs. There are scattered pop culture references, gouts of blood and a wisecracking, macho hero. Observe as I try to give you my thoughts without referring to Duke Nukem even once.

Serious Sam: Double D Is Gun Crazy

By Adam Smith on August 23rd, 2011.

There is a rational explanation for this

Not too long ago, John brought you words and pictures in an attempt to describe the madness of Serious Sam: Double D. Now, Mommy’s Best Games have sent an ambassador forth to describe things in his own words. And he has some footage for us all. It’s trailer time and I’d highly recommend having some tranquilisers on hand for when this one’s done.

First Look: Serious Sam Double D

By John Walker on June 21st, 2011.

That's quite a big monkey.

There’s a lovely promotional initiative taking place for Serious Sam 3. Quintin brought news of it back in March. A few indie developers, whose games Devolver and Croteam enjoy, have been asked to make a game in their own style set in the Serious Sam universe. I’ve had a chance to see one of them running – Serious Sam Double D from Mommy’s Best Games. Vuvuzelators, chimp amputees and gun stacking within.

Gunstacking: Stack Guns On Guns On Guns

By Lewie Procter on April 25th, 2011.

We all love the Serious Sam games. Who doesn’t enjoy clicking on bad guys in the face to make them die? But it’s hard to take them too seriously when Sam’s always been limited to one weapon per hand. What self respectable action hero doesn’t dream of wielding a small army’s worth of firearms at any given time? Serious Sam: Double D looks like it’s set to rectify this heinous design oversight from the rest of the series. I introduce you to Gunstacking. Read the rest of this entry »

Serious, Sam

By Kieron Gillen on November 27th, 2009.

I write this in a classy French flat, so have the proper intellectual kudos. You understand.

A great thinker, when first confronted with the teenage delirium of Doom, made one of the most astute, piercing and brilliant observations ever to be applied to a videogame. Yes, this is pretty good…. but imagine if you could talk to the monsters. Now that would be something. And it would. It would be a glorious thing, a dream only yet partially achieved, that hundreds chase. But I come not to talk of the future – I come to talk of a present. A present where hundreds chase you.

The Singular Madness Of Serious Sam HD

By Alec Meer on November 24th, 2009.

This is Dave Bladehead. He's very good at crosswords.

Oho, we’ve not said too much about the rejiggery of Serious Sam, have we? I fear it got a little lost amidst all the wartorn modernity, ages of dragons, deadly leavings and lands of borders of recent weeks, alas. But it’s here now. As in, right now, as of today. Steam is its only current home, where it’s busy pulling the crab most muscular in the hope of earning $20/£18 (damn you, exchange rate) of your esteemed funds. I’m in two minds about Sam HD. On the one hand – been there, done that. On the other, well, you know. Serious Friggin’ Sam. Don’t make ‘em like that anymore, and all that. Sniff. Below, a glut of agreeably insane promotional videos that we really should have put up earlier. They won’t improve your understanding of the game one bit, but they will brighten/strangen/unsettle your day. Bless you, Crotream, you mad fools.

Hire Serious Sam’s Voice – For A Buck

By Alec Meer on August 11th, 2009.

Now here’s an especially strange little tale. The actor responsible for the voice of Serious Sam (i.e. like Duke Nukem, but not) has major money troubles. To fix ‘em, he’s selling his gravelly tones for a mere buck a word. Maybe you’re a game developer in need of a cheap voice actor; maybe you’re a mod team about to make the critical mistake of getting your sister’s lisping boyfriend to record all your project’s dialogue. Maybe you’d just love a personalised, unique Serious Sam voicemail message. Or maybe, just maybe, the idea of getting a part-time stripclub DJ called ‘John J. Dick’ to record any dialogue you ask of him is too good an opportunity to pass up.
