I'm the first to admit that we (Crackshell) might not be the best company to advertise and post around about what we do, but at least we are not sitting on our asses doing nothing.

Our take on Serious Sam is due to be released this summer, lock stock and barrel, with the following key features:

  • Lengthy campaign, that can be played alone or for up to 4 people in coop.
  • Survival mode, fight hordes of enemies in various different locations, for up to 12 friends!
  • Versus mode, deathmatch, team deathmatch, rabbit, king of the hill, for 12 players!
  • Tons of enemies, items, secrets, weapons and some fun easter eggs too =D
  • Other than the the four difficult levels (easy|normal|hard|serious), there's multiple switches to modify your session, to make it even easier or harder.
  • A fun and rewarding upgrade system based on experience that let's you play your own unique way!
  • Highly moddable, let's you mod pretty much any aspect you want of the game, create your own maps and publish these onto the Steam Workshop. Even if it's a simple versus map or something like a completely different game.
  • Full controller support with twin-stick or keyboard and mouse (ofc)!

This game is being released by Devolver Digital (they need no introduction) this summer. We're very happy to be working with them and that the development has finally come to an end so we can share what we've been working on for the past 2 years now!

The steam store page is open for anyone who want's to take a peak, you can also already see some workshop items that we made and some that a few beta testers have made! This game will ship with mods and examples!

Take care y'all

Dont be fooled by the trailer with all those camera close ups, it's doesnt have that much action, You have 3 guys, sam and 2 his friends, you have like 5 seconds to shoot something then you have to pick what to do next for every single character attack again, change weapon or use skills. It's something between FF and SS but as this game shows FF+SS=FFS:

+This game has plenty of manly sam jokes in-between levels
+Notable monsters from the SS series
-This game is unplayable boring - you ever thought that serious sam game could be boring AF? No? Here you go. Somebody thought it would be fun to breed action and turn-base but its sucks so much, it takes like 80% of the time to pick what to do and 20% of the time you see any action + with most weapons you use shoot instantly and then you try to dodge stuff but this level design dont let you understand where the projectile going + you have 3 characters so you cant dodge all the stuff even if you want,
-This game so hard to beat, that with addition of how boring it is makes you want to kill yourself when you die from the huge wave of random crаp, because you have to play this level all over again. Wow such a nice game, so you dont want to waste your time on it, isnt it nice?
-it has no steam achievements or steamcards

So in conclusion there is no any reason to buy this sh`tty game other than to fill your library with 1 more Serious Sam game if you want to collect them all. Otherwise i highly recommend not to buy this crap.
