Need more Serious Sam? Serious Sam's Bogus Detour arrives this summer

Posted by , | Views: 4,583
Serious Sam's Bogus Detour [Steam, Official Site] is another Serious Sam title, but this one is a top-down manic shooter for up to 12 players. It's not actually being created by Croteam, but rather Crackshell, who developed Hammerwatch.

We have a fair amount of top-down action games, but with a bit of Sam thrown in, it might be one to rise above the crop. Something I imagine would be great for our livestreams to play with the community.

It has been in development for quite some time, with the developer showing it off on TIGSource back in 2014.

It's due sometime this summer, with no clearer date set yet. While they have a Steam page set up for it, they also plan a GOG release too.

About the game
Serious Sam’s Bogus Detour is an all-new action-adventure in the legendary Serious Sam saga from 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 include game editor. Serious Sam’s Bogus Detour is the biggest little Serious Sam game ever made!

I hope they do a good gamepad support. The video only shows it being played with mouse/keyboard, witch is a Serious® no-no for me for this type of game.

Hammerwatch is fully playable with any controller so there's no doubt this one will be too.

I'm afraid that it will be the same thing as "always"... Like a dev release a "little" game on GOG but not their big one(s)...
I really want to have wrong.
And if a dev doesn't talk about it, it's pretty clear for me, like some don't talk about linux versions.

Hammerwatch is a nice game, so it should be the same for this one.

So this is the secret title the Hammerwatch guys were working on before making Hammerwatch 2. Guess as a serious Sam fan, I will definitely buy this one. The game looks freaking cool, especially Survival Mode
