Croteam are having a big sale to celebrate 25 years

Posted by , | Views: 4,967

Croteam, developer of the Serious Sam series and The Talos Principle have stuck around for 25 years and so they're celebrating with a big sale.

They've supported Linux really well and they're easily one of my favourite developers. They got in really early with Linux support when the Steam client on Linux was still in its infancy, so they deserve our support.

Most of their games are on sale, including their VR versions. As a reminder, even though titles like Serious Sam HD: The First Encounter and Serious Sam HD: The Second Encounter don't state they support Linux, buying them will give you access to Serious Sam Fusion to be able to play them in an updated game engine that supports Vulkan.

If you're missing some of their games, this is a perfect opportunity to grab them while they're really cheap.

Have a look at their special Steam page for the sale.

Love Croteam, and if it all goes well it looks like SCUM will come to Linux eventually.

That's a pretty outdated statement though, nearly a year old and neither have replied to us about their plans so I wouldn't give it any hype yet.

Yeah that's why I said "if all goes well", but it's definitely one to watch out for.

(...)Linux will be very likely supported very soon but not on EA release date.(...)

I think something's coming. This is only one, but in terms of time it is the last statement. There are more statements in the Steam forums that there will be a Linux version.

Ah nice, will wait and see on this one then

Would be pretty fun.

First time I even heard of SCUM. Might be interesting to keep an eye on for now. Also interesting is that Vulkan support for UE4 appears to be getting pretty decent now, so this may help reduce the dev work load for Linux ports.

So you're a smart bunch, having chosen Linux and all. So let me pose a brain-teaser to you.

If I were to buy only one Serious Sam game, which would it be?

Depends what you like.
For me the first and second encounter hold more nostalgic value and I find them more colorful.

You could try BFE for something newer. I just felt the stink of modern warfare shooters on that one.

Fusion

Fusion can't be bought directly. It's included with the games that are supported by it.

As for choice, what razing32 said. Depends on taste. Although, with these prices there's little reason to actually choose one. Other than a thought experiment.
