Serious Sam: The Second Encounter, the highly anticipated arcade action FPS sequel to the Serious Sam: The First Encounter, is a high-adrenaline arcade-action shooter heavily focused on frantic arcade-style action. In a world where cyberpunk meets fantasy-fiction and advanced technology is mixed with black magic and psycho-powers, Sam travels through the three beautiful worlds, confronting countless minions on his way to the Mental's base.

11 comments by Henley on Jan 24th, 2012

The Indie Royale game bundle website is launching a new series of 'lightning packs' - more focused, 'niche' collections of PC games with a shorter time-limit to buy.

The first surprise pack, the Serious Sam Lightning Pack, is available to buy immediately, with a starting price of $2.99 and a total of six Serious Sam-themed games, including four new indie-developed games riffing on Croteam's gonzo FPS franchise, plus the two original games in the series.

Serious Sam's recent indie spinoffs were commissioned by rogue micropublisher Devolver Digital and franchise creator Croteam (still an independent developer themselves!) around the launch of Serious Sam 3: BFE, but gained some notoriety thanks to their entertaining spinoffs of the shooter franchise.

Of the previously available titles in the bundle, Serious Sam: The Random Encounter -- available on PC as a DRM-free download, on Steam, and on Desura -- is a refreshing take on the RPG genre, developed by acclaimed indie developer Vlambeer (Super Crate Box, Ridiculous Fishing). Its gameplay is a clever pixelated hybrid of turn-based battles with real-time, run and gun offense and defense maneuvering.

Also part of the pack, Serious Sam Double D -- available on PC as a DRM-free download, on Steam, and on Desura -- is a hand drawn, side-scrolling shooter featuring over-the-top gameplay and chaotic action from arcade-loving indie Mommy's Best Games (Weapon Of Choice, Explosionade).

Next, making an exclusive debut on PC in this Lightning Pack is a DRM-free download and Desura PC version of Serious Sam: Kamikaze Attack. Developer Be-Rad Entertainment's offering (originally available exclusively on smartphones) is an Canabalt-style action-platformer where players control the Headless Kamikaze enemy, striving to accomplish the bad guy's dream of blowing up the vile Serious Sam on every level.

Finally, as a world exclusive Indie Royale debut, Serious Sam: The Greek Encounter is an 8-bit, top-down "demake" of Serious Sam, specially commissioned by Team Fortress Arcade and Halo/DJ Hero demake author Eric Ruth. It's available for PC as a DRM-free download and on Desura, and sees Serious Sam in ancient Greece battling the relentless hordes of Mental's army in an all-new retro 8-bit adventure.

And as a special bonus, Croteam, the indie team who originated the Serious Sam franchise, offers the original Serious Sam: The First Encounter and Serious Sam: The Second Encounter games for PC, redeemable on Steam. These two original titles are packed with the arcade-action style first-person shooting that the Serious Sam series is known for, including gonzo single- and multi-player modes.


This new Lightning Pack will run for just 100 hours, under the same pricing model as before: the price will automatically increase as more people buy the pack. Those generous buyers who pay more than the current minimum can decrease the price for other purchasers.

I have already purchased both episodes for PC back in the day, I purchased the Xbox game (they were combined), I purchased SSam2 for Xbox, the GameCube exclusive game, and the HD versions of these games on XBLA. I already have the linux bins running with the data from my PC copies. Regardless, I am willing to buy both these games once again if the Linux side is supported without the "beta" label on Desura.

(Double Miniguns, that's all i want,i don't care about the rest of the weapon :D) ...and btw, This Game Seriously Rocks !!
