Serious Sam developer Croteam has released the source code for the Serious Engine, the backbone of both Serious Sam Classic: The First Encounter and The Second Encounter.
Croteam has revealed it's working on the next instalment in the Serious Sam series.
Serious Sam was the most first-person shooting first-person shooter in the world (even if you were mad enough to try and play it in the third-person mode). Serious Sam 2 is the same game, but prettier, madder, bigger and packed full of more options, so is obviously not nearly as good.
Let me explain.
Let's play alternate history.
2K Games has released a new demo for PC and Xbox shooter Serious Sam II, now available from the game's website.
Croteam is going all-out for Serious Sam II, providing a co-op mode that allows up to 16 players to tackle the game, which is due out this autumn.
Croteam has revealed more details of the enemies you can expect to encounter in Serious Sam II, the forthcoming PC and Xbox FPS. There are also some nice new screenshots to look at.
If you're one of the millions of people who hate and fear clowns, SSII's Marcel is likely to give you nightmares. He lobs cakes containing plastic explosives that detonate on contact - but the good news is you can shoot them from long range, and they'll kill anything around them when they explode.
Then there are the Harpies, which were created out of leftover chicken legs and Levitating entities, and will rip you to shreds with their razor sharp talons if you're not careful.
A new trailer for Serious Sam II, the first fully-fledged sequel to the super-fast FPS for PC and Xbox, is now available on Eurofiles.
For only 5MB of hard drive space, you can take a look at the further adventures of Sam "Serious" Stone in a game said to feature more enemies on screen than any other.
More details can be found here, and screenshots are here.
