Why Sam?

Croatian developers CroTeam recently released a test version of their over-the-top all-action first person shooter, "Serious Sam", which has been getting rave reviews from fellow developers and gamers alike. But there was always one question - why on Earth did they call it that? Well, now they have explained all...

Originally "it was called "In the Flesh". But, Alen and I both had a vision. This flashy guy from the vision spoke to us and said something like, "Thy game shall be called Sam". We took the message very serious, so the game is now called Serious Sam."

All we need now is a backwards talking dancing dwarf in a red room. It's a strange, strange world... To find out more about CroTeam and their new game, read the interview with them over on GameSpy. You can download the Serious Sam demo from the CroTeam website.
