An action game following Serious Sam on his bogus detour journey north of Egypt during his First Encounter in Egypt.

Serious Sam Bogus Detour #SERIOUSMOD Competition

Modders, it's time to get serious. Mod DB have teamed up with creators of the newly released Serious Sam Bogus Detour (grab it on Steam) to give you a chance to get your mod featured in the official release of the game! That is of course - if you are serious enough and I can guarantee that isn't the last pun you will see here.

So what's the challenge? Make something seriously awesome (told you). You can make a custom campaign, a horde mode style map or even Serious Sam inspired art, whatever you want - it's entirely upto you.

So there must be some serious prizes right? Right you are. 1st place mod gets eternal fame and a whole bundle of cash, 2nd place walks away with a 1080 NVIDIA GPU and 3rd place gets some logitech gear. The next 20 best mods and art submitted take home a SERIOUS SAM digital game pack, so it's unlikely any serious competitor will leave empty handed.

Your task

We want you to create either a mod for Serious Sam Bogus Detour or art inspired by the game. What you choose to make is entirely upto you, just remember if you are creating a mod the first place to start would be the excellent Hammerwatch mod tool.
