The original Serious Sam 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 beautiful world of ancient Egypt and several diverse planets, confronting countless minions on his way to the Mental's base. [NOTE: Indie Royale's Serious Sam Lightning pack also includes The Second Encounter. Both versions are the original releases, rather than the HD remakes.]

The awesome guys over at Croteam, have a wonderful surprise for all you budding fans of Serious Sam or modding in general, With the source code out now, mods can really stretch their legs and push the limits of the game. So lets get serious for a moment and find out what Croteam had to say.

SeriousEngine2

Hey guys, today we have a surprise for you. We’re releasing the source code for Serious Engine v1.10! It’s the very same engine that we used for Serious Sam Classic: The First Encounter and The Second Encounter.

This month we’ll be celebrating Serious Sam’s 15th anniversary and we’re all feeling very nostalgic. Croteam’s Vyacheslav Nikitenko, who worked on the source code and prepared Serious Engine v.1.10 for this release, had this to say:

“Historically, this version of Serious Engine is very important for Croteam and for me personally. I created several mods for Serious Sam back in the day, before even starting the work on the source code, and it was a great tool for learning.

And it’s even better today! Obviously, Serious Engine v1.10 won’t produce top-notch graphics, but the source code is very well commented, easy to modify, and there are lots of user generated mods out there. This version has everything you need to build your own game – or just experiment.

If you’re looking to get started, just download the files from GitHub and head over to SeriousZone, it has a great community and lots of tutorials.”

Why is this Steam only when the game was clearly developed and released before Steam even existed?

Why the low quality screenshots? This game does look a hell lot better if you pump the graphics settings to the max (by poking around the options yourself, not choosing the predefined settings).
