Your daily dose of crazy – Serious Sam HD Infomercial
Although it’s been a while since I played CroTEAM’s Doom-inspired shooter “Serious Sam” back on the PC, I can say, pretty definitively, that shooters are just not made like this anymore. Released at a time when Half-Life was redefining what a FPS could be, CroTEAM did a hardcore 180, effectively saying “screw that”, and created a wonderful throwback to a time when psychotic, headless creatures with bombs for arms and massive guns with endless amounts of ammo were more important that silly things like story or motivation. In fact, the game play couldn’t have been more skull-numbingly simple: grab some big-ass guns, shoot down any ugly that gets between you and an open space, and repeat until the credits roll.
Now, CroTEAM is bring the crazy back with an HD version of the original Serious Sam game. In classic Serious Sam form, the infomercial for the game is as nonsensical and tongue-in-cheek as the game it’s promoting. While we’re quite afraid to find out what a “krundle” is, we’re sure you’ll get a kick out of this video.
Serious Sam HD is being developed for PC and Xbox Live Arcade. A US release date has yet to be announced.
