Serious Sam 3: BFE is a glorious throwback to the golden age of first-person shooters where men were men, cover was for amateurs and pulling the trigger made things go boom. Serving as a prequel to the original indie sensation, Serious Sam: The First Encounter, Serious Sam 3 takes place during the Earth’s final struggle against Mental’s invading legions of beasts and mercenaries. Set against the collapsing temples of an ancient civilization and the crumbling cities of 22nd century Egypt, Serious Sam 3 is an exhilarating fusion of classic twitch shooters and modern gameplay features.

I'm the first to admit that we (Crackshell) might not be the best company to advertise and post around about what we do, but at least we are not sitting on our asses doing nothing.

Our take on Serious Sam is due to be released this summer, lock stock and barrel, with the following key features:

  • Lengthy campaign, that can be played alone or for up to 4 people in coop.
  • Survival mode, fight hordes of enemies in various different locations, for up to 12 friends!
  • Versus mode, deathmatch, team deathmatch, rabbit, king of the hill, for 12 players!
  • Tons of enemies, items, secrets, weapons and some fun easter eggs too =D
  • Other than the the four difficult levels (easy|normal|hard|serious), there's multiple switches to modify your session, to make it even easier or harder.
  • A fun and rewarding upgrade system based on experience that let's you play your own unique way!
  • Highly moddable, let's you mod pretty much any aspect you want of the game, create your own maps and publish these onto the Steam Workshop. Even if it's a simple versus map or something like a completely different game.
  • Full controller support with twin-stick or keyboard and mouse (ofc)!

This game is being released by Devolver Digital (they need no introduction) this summer. We're very happy to be working with them and that the development has finally come to an end so we can share what we've been working on for the past 2 years now!

The steam store page is open for anyone who want's to take a peak, you can also already see some workshop items that we made and some that a few beta testers have made! This game will ship with mods and examples!

Take care y'all

I would buy this game if Steam wasn't required. We don't come to Desura to buy Steam-only games, Croteam.

Valve, cause its dominant position, ****** the future of DRM Free AAA gaming on Linux.

This is the proof.

I got this game on Desura and I'm on Mac.
When I click "Play this game" it tells me to install the Desura Client. But it doesn't exist for Mac.
So my question: How do I install this game?

Too bad I have already bought this one on Steam. I really like Desura, but the regional prices are way too different (600 roubles + occasional discounts in Steam against 1221.15 in Desura - the choice is obvious).

It works on Steam but I can't run steam as I'm using Debian stable 64 bit. Maybe in the future I will be able to play this game. I just got a refund for now. Come on Steam! Make a new install file for 64 bit Debian Squeeze!

Ability to run program across different distros would have been really cool, but the problem is that many games with their shiny new engines rely on some newer features, that are only available in newer programs. For example, most of the stuff from steam is compiled against libc 2.15, which can be found in Ubuntu 12.04, that's why it cannot be launched in Debian Wheezy. I doubt the game distributors will force the developers to redesign the engine in order to support the whole variety of distros.

What the... only with STEAM ??
Come on !! I thought Desura will only let us buy free DRM games and now, we must have STEAM to play a game from Desura ?
I was ready to buy it if I can have it by Desura but that sentence stopped me. Thank you. But I don't want to rent a game, I want to buy it and that's why I am on Desura.

Some weird decisions gameplay wise after the near perfect first and second encounter.
Mostly disappointing bosses, over use of hitscan enemies at some point, infinite ammo crates, serious lost its double ammo, overall difficulties seem to all have the same amount of enemies but the worst is definitely the "explosives only" enemies.

Still a great game, but a step down compared to the previous games.

From a technical stand-point the game is really gorgeous.
