The official countdown to Serious Sam 4 begins with Against All Odds, a behind-the-scenes video full of dev interviews looking back on the early days of Croteam, and the struggles to get Serious Sam “out there”.
Serious Sam 4 is launching on September 24, 2020 via Steam and Stadia. Visit serioussam.com to pre-order now and get your hands on a shiny Tommy Gun in-game weapon skin.
The long-awaited SCUM Update 0.4 is finally live, and our partners from Gamepires have outdone themselves with this one, updating multiple mechanics, adding cool new features, and making our co-production baby the best survival game there is.
The SCUM Update 0.4 introduces a cool new weapon maintenance system, as well as weapon malfunctions to make your life miserable, provided you don’t take care of your killer toys. Joining the weapon malfunction system are brand new ammo types, along with their perks and advantages, as well as brand new weapon mechanics including revamped recoil animations, and different fire modes.
SCUM is also getting some new weapons, and the option to shoot some fools while driving your vehicles. Other changes include improved sound effects, new improvised gear to craft, and a ton of bug fixes, tweaks, and smaller changes.
Check out the full changelog on the SCUM Community Hub on Steam, or simply watch the fine dev-update video below.

The wait is almost over, and the Countdown to Serious Sam 4 starts right now with a brand new gameplay trailer premiered during the totally not pre-recorded Devolver Digital Direct conference. Check it out below.
Starting today, you can also visit the Serious Sam 4 booth in the Devolverland Expo, a first-person marketing simulator set within an abandoned convention center. Check it out on Steam for the absurd price of absolutely free.
“I would never have guessed it!” This is the sort of reaction we usually get when people learn that the same studio made both Serious Sam and The Talos Principle, one we heard many times before.
Yes, there’s a stark difference between a frantic first-person shooter and a philosophical puzzler, but guess what? Some of us love turn-based games even better!
So much so, that a group of Croteam’s lead engineers and turn-based lovers decided to form Room-C Games a few years back, a spin-off studio with the sole purpose of creating a turn-based game of their own. The team was soon joined by Jonas & Verena Kyratzes, a legendary writing duo that needs no special introduction to our fans, and soon The Hand of Merlin was born.
A fantasy turn-based rogue-lite RPG, where medieval arms clash with sci-fi horror, had an interesting time in development full of fun design choices (check out MarkoP’s amazing dev blog diaries here!), including the switch to the latest version of Serious Engine, but today is an exciting day as we’re happy to announce that The Hand of Merlin has joined the Steam Game Festival: Summer Edition!
This means that you can play the exclusive demo right away, and take those first steps in Albion on your epic journey from Camelot to Jerusalem. Time is of the essence here, as the demo will vanish – pooof! – as soon as the Festival ends on Sunday.
The newly released teaser trailer will stay on the Steam game page a bit longer, as will your comments, follows, likes and wishlist actions – we’ll forever cherish those!
