Whoah! Serious Sam is 18 years old

Serious Sam is 18 years old today! It was on March 21st, 2001 that Serious Sam: The First Encounter hit the shelves. Quite literally, as digital distribution was still a distant future back then.

We were young, super passionate and, after a successful tech test launched in the summer of 2000, confident that Serious Sam would resonate well with the gaming community. Turns out, we were right. Serious Sam: The First Encounter caused quite a stir in the gaming community, won dozens of awards (including Gamespot’s Game of the Year) and laid the foundation of everything Croteam is today.

Fast forward 18 years later and Serious Sam got numerous sequels, spin-offs and remasters on most platforms. Hell, we even sent Sam to virtual reality and as with everything else – had tons of fun doing so.

Even though he’s 18 years old (and legally allowed to buy a beer here in Croatia, finally), Sam is still going strong and we can’t wait to take you on another journey of chaos and mayhem with Serious Sam 4.

Until then, we’ll raise a glass (of aforementioned beer) in Sam’s name and celebrate all of you for being Seriously awesome. Whether you’ve been demolishing hordes of aliens since day one or just joined our community we thank you for supporting us from the bottom of our hearts!

SCUM update 0.1.27.12125 is live!

The general rule is – you don’t patch your games on Friday. But, Gamepires are a crazy bunch so that’s exactly what they usually do with SCUM. They like to live on the edge. To be fair, it’s been all good so far, so we won’t judge. We’ll jump in the game instead. There’s much to enjoy.

For one, you can visit a new place, the Coal Mine, but that’s not all. SCUM got many smaller islands around the main one. You should go there, who knows what they hide.

There are more new additions, of course, along with many tweaks and fixes.

Finally, this update marks the beginning of a brand new weekly comic series that will help you understand the lore behind SCUM.
