SSVR: The Last Hope – Valtos Update Available on Early Access

SSVR: The Last Hope – Valtos Update Available on Early AccessSerious Sam VR: The Last Hope just got bigger with an all new Valtos Update landing on Early Access. The update features a new planet – Valtos – featuring four different locations/maps including The Swamp, Ancient Breeze, The Old Forest and Green Dream.

Also featured in the Valtos Update are six different enemies including Kalopsy, Siren, Swamp Monster, Air Trooper, Technopolyp and Air Sniper Trooper. After dealing with them Sam will have to fight toe to toe with the Swamp Hive boss, as scary as it is slimy.

To help him in his mission, General Stone’s arsenal got even deadlier with new additions including a bow with piercing/explosive arrows and the deadly Devastator.

Valtos Update also includes many different tweaks, fixes and optimizations such as vastly improved precision for the default sword projectile casting mode and improved shield energy display.

For more information visit Serious Sam VR: The Last Hope on Steam.

Save big on the ultimate The Talos Principle Gold Edition featuring base game content as well as all of the post-release content, and more.

Let’s be honest here. We’ve spent all our virtual ammo in the recently released Serious Sam VR: The Second Encounter, and while completely ignoring reality we got stuck in an existential crisis.

Challenge yourself with the Road to Gehenna expansion and Follow Uriel, Elohim’s messenger, through four episodes as he explores a hidden part of the simulation in an attempt to free the souls of the damned at all cost. Jump in the game in a different role with the Serious DLC and enjoy the completely new and humorous Serious Sam script. Finally, explore new levels and solve over 100 puzzles from the early development stage in the Prototype DLC.

But you know how this goes, things don’t stop here. Also included in The Talos Principle Gold Edition is the Bonus Content featuring a making-of documentary and a digital terminal booklet with over 100 pages of text from the in-game terminals. Of course, The Gold Edition includes the official soundtrack featuring 27 amazing original tracks from the game.

Serious Sam’s Bogus Detour Coming This Summer From Creators of “Hammerwatch”

Looks like we’ve got ourselves the next great entry in the Serious Sam Indie Series – Serious Sam’s Bogus Detour! It’s a retro-styled action-adventure in the Serious Sam saga made by Hammerwatch developer Crackshell.

Battle through beautiful Mediterranean locales, dangerous biological weapons labs and even high-tech moon bases as a one-man wrecking crew or in four-player online cooperative for maximum chaos! Dominate the chaotic Survival and Versus modes or make your own mods, modes, and even total conversions with the included game editor. Serious Sam’s Bogus Detour is the biggest little Serious Sam game ever made!

“Our boys in R&D have been looking into ways to combine this hot wave of so-called indie games with the tried and true Serious Sam profit formula and it looks like they’ve hit a homerun with Serious Sam’s Bogus Detour,” said Devolver Digital CFO Fork Parker.

Serious Sam’s Bogus Detour marks a return to indie roots and a continuation of the Serious Sam Indie Series that includes Vlambeer’s Serious Sam: The Random Encounter and Mommy’s Best Games’ Serious Sam Double D.

For more information on Serious Sam’s Bogus Detour visit crackshell.dk or Steam, and follow @RealCrackshell on Twitter.

Serious Sam: The First Encounter – 16th anniversary today

Today we are celebrating the beginning of Serious Sam glory, the release of first series in Sam’s universe, The First Encounter. We were young twenty-something guys that shared one mutual dream – to develop video games. Serious Sam: The First Encounter was our breakthrough title and, oh boy, it caused a commotion in the gaming community. Demo for the game became the most downloaded demo of the summer 2000. Croteam partnered up with the Gathering of Developers (Devolver Digital today) and they became our publishers for this and all future Sam’s titles.

 

 

Fast-forward 16 years later and we are in 2017., year of virtual reality. We love VR and we love experimenting with it and one of our newest experiments is Serious Sam VR: The First Encounter. It’s a full locomotion game for the brave ones with the possibility of teleportation for the entry-level VR players. Game is in Early Access on Steam and it’s set for the full release soon.
