Anyone who played games on the PC seven or eight years ago ought to remember Serious Sam. The franchise revived mindless, Doom-style action and melded it with massive (for the time) environments, ancient Egyptian pyramids, and a Duke Nukem-style main character bulging with muscle and witty one-liners.
Well, the development studio behind the original game, Croteam, has come up with a remake of Serious Sam: The First Encounter with new-and-improved high-definition graphics. As Shacknews reports, Croteam plans to release this remake tomorrow on the PC. An Xbox 360 version will follow in December.
You can already pre-order Serious Sam HD: The First Encounter on Steam for $17.99 (two bucks off the regular price). A teaser video showing off some of the game's cartoony action and high-def graphics can be viewed here. Gameplay looks mostly unchanged from the 2001 game, and Croteam has preserved the co-operative multiplayer mode, as well.
