Devolver Digital have acquired Serious Sam developers Croteam

Not-so-serious publishers Devolver Digital have announced today in a not-so-serious post that they've acquired Serious Sam developers Croteam. Seriously. Well, the tone of the announcement isn't serious but it has seriously happened. It's a business love story for the books.

Serious Sam 4 has hotfixed some crashes, with performance improvements to come

A little shouting is to be expected when playing a Serious Sam game, considering one of the enemies is a headless fella with bombs for hands who'll come charging over the horizon with an "aaaAAAAAAAAA!", but Croteam's latest circle-strafing shooter did bring some bad shouting too. When Serious Sam 4 launched last Thursday, some players were yelling at technical issues including crashes and poor performance.…

Serious Sam 4 will let you pilot the Pope’s personal mech

I had heard that Serious Sam 4 would let us drive a Popemobile. I had not heard that the Popemobile in question is a giant heavily-armed mech whose boot-up sequence dialogue concludes, "All systems ready. Let God sort them out." A new trailer hot out of Gamescom today shows the Popemobile in action, smashing a tentacle monster in the middle Vatican City and alright, yup,…

Serious Sam 4 sends its release date screaming into September

Call yourself Serious Sam 4, do ya? Well, you don't seem so "serious" about this launching in August lark to me. Unfortunately, the next entry in Croteam's run-and-gun-and-scream-and-explode 'em up won't launch this month as planned, with the devs today announcing that Sam's fourth shooting gallery has been delayed into late September. It takes time to pack 100,000 baddies onto one screen, after all.

Serious Sam 4’s new trailer looks like Serious Sam to me

The new trailer for Serious Sam 4 coming out of Devolver Digital's notE3 stream today didn't show much of the game, but what it did show looks like Serious Sam to me. Wacky cartoon monsters roaming around arenas in real-world-ish locations? Yup. Quite a few of those monsters at once? Quite. Unnecessary story? Seriously. Explosions, lasers, and gibs? Oh my! Check out the trailer below.

Serious Sam 4 will send Mr. Stone up against 100,000 enemies at once in August

Suit up your arsenal of shotguns, minguns, handguns, and uh, cannon guns, because Serious Sam 4 is packing the heat at the end of the summer. The Sam Serious prequel game has launched a new trailer showing just a bit of the lovely hordes streaking over gorgeous grassy hills. Croteam claim they're pitting Sammy up against over 100,000 simultaneous baddies when the game launches in…

Croteam’s anniversary Steam sale includes a bargain bin VR bundle

Here's one for the space-goggles crowd to jump on. Croteam, the plucky studio behind the Serious Sam series and the lovely philoso-puzzler The Talos Principle, are running a 26th anniversary Steam sale for the next two days. While offering good deals across the board, the most surprising thing is a bundle of all their virtual reality games, currently going for 92% off its usual price.…

Survival sandbox Scum adds rude gestures, cave networks and human skin masks

Scum may be detailed enough to let you urinate or even defecate on your foes, but that requires you to be up close. A raised middle finger? Well, that's your new ranged option for offensive offending. In today's early access update, prisoners attempting to survive the zombie and robot-infested hell that is Gamepires's Scum have a few new options. These include hiding in caves, making…

Feature: Health kick

Premature Evaluation: Scum

Premature Evaluation is the weekly column in which we explore the wilds of early access. This week, Fraser’s trying to lead a healthier, happier life in Scum, the multiplayer survival sim. Scum’s wall of data is mesmerising. From the moment I arrived on the island, every spare second, and even seconds I couldn’t spare, was dedicated to staring at it. The readings and statistics told…

Scum adds anti-cheat to fight the real scum

It's always galling to be murdered when you're on the pot, but doubly so when killed by a cheater. The 'DayZ but with robots and pooing' survival sandbox Scum has (hopefully?) solved that shitty problem over the weekend by adding anti-cheat tech, which is a feature I'm honestly surprised to hear a high-profile murderous multiplayer game had launched without. Known cheats for Scum included an…

Survival sandbox Scum enters early access and looks a lot like DayZ

Survival sandbox Scum may boast astonishingly detailed health management systems (shown above) but under that veneer of hyper-complexity beats a familiar heart. Published by Devolver Digital and entering early access today, Scum resembles zombie survive 'em up DayZ, brief source of zeitgeist before battle royale shooters took over. Set in a massive open-air prison, up to 64 players per server try to feed, clothe and…

Devolver’s survival sandbox Scum enters early access August 29th

Devolver Digital's whole brand is edgy nostalgia but it is weird they're casting a misty-eyed gaze back to the distant year of 2012, when "Friendly!" shouts in DayZ were the sound of the summer, with multiplayer online survival murder sandbox Scum. We'll get to relive those halcyon days soon, as Devolver have announced an early access launch date of August 29th. Prepare to once again…

Serious Sam 4 trailer visits Planet Badass

The unpausing yell of a headless bomb-handed man charging towards me should fill me with dread, and yet I'm happy to see the daft gits again in a new trailer for Serious Sam 4. Four years after the game was once due to launch, developers Croteam are finally starting to open up more about their frenetic backpedalling first-person shooter. It's called Serious Sam 4: Planet…

Bang bang! Serious Sam’s Bogus Detour released

Devolver Digital and Croteam are continuing their experiments in throwing the Serious Sam name at small teams on condition that the resultant game in some way includes: 1) sand; 2) big guns; 3) screaming shirtless men with bombs for hands. This has previously given us such games as the gun-stacking side-scroller Double D and turn-based RPG The Random Encounter. Now Crackshell, the makers of Hammerwatch,…

Serious Sam’s Bogus Detour is already great before it’s even finished

Croatian developers Croteam have proven themselves a developer of two extremes. For many years they were about dumbfest shooter fun Serious Sam and Serious Sam alone, and then out of absolutely nowhere produced the cerebral and utterly brilliant The Talos Principle. Since then we've had a splendid expansion for Talos and a frankly peculiar number of Serious Sam VR games. Now comes Serious Sam's Bogus…

That's the mega-bang top-down shooter with online co-op from the makers of Hammerwatch, which is a good thing for a game to be. And yup, it looks like it could be a lark in a new trailer released by Devolver Digital to…

Jack in for chum shootyfun with Serious Sam VR co-op

Serious Sam VR [official site], the cybergoggle first-person shooter Alec declared "VR at its most stupid and most brilliant", now has co-op. You and a pal can stand virtuaside by virtuaside waving your arms as imaginary guns, mowing down hordes of monsters. A sensible adult would suggest that you never play in the same room lest violent and terrible accidents occur but mate, come on,…

Serious Sam VR Is VR At Its Most Stupid & Most Brilliant

I guess I don't feel entirely comfortable saying that a game about nothin' but shooting restored some of my damaged faith in VR, but what the hell: yee-haw! In my fond imagining, VR was going to take me to brand new places, not strand me in the blood-strewn alleys of modern videogaming's norm. There's no avoiding it, though: Serious Sam VR: The Last Hope [official…

Serious Sam VR Jacking Into Early Access This Month

As much as I think the current wave of VR is a fad, mate, even I wouldn't down turn waving my hands as two giant ridiculous guns in Serious Sam VR: The Last Hope [official site]. Well, I wouldn't if cybergoggles worked properly with my eyes. Anyway! Point is: the virtual reality spin-off from Croteam's silly FPS series is coming to Steam Early Access on…
