Serious Sam: The Random Encounter

Retro RPG take on shooter out in Oct.

Serious Sam: The Random Encounter, a retro, turn-based RPG take on the shooter series, launches on PC mid-October.

The Random Encounter follows Sam as he battles odd creatures alongside his mercenary mates. It costs $4.99 from Steam and other digital shops.

It is the third chapter in the Serious Sam Indie Series, and was developed by Vlambeer.

The Random Encounter is joined by side-scrolling shooter Serious Sam: Double D from Mommy's Best Games, and smartphone effort Serious Sam: Kamikaze Attack! from Be-Rad Entertainment, in the indie initiative.
