The Serious Sam franchise is built upon two foundational elements: 1. Story lines are stupid and 2. Giant guns are awesome. Obviously, I can’t find anything wrong with either of these elements, which is why I’m excited for the upcoming Serious Sam: Double D title.
Serious Sam: Double D will be the first game released in Croteam’s Serious Sam Indie Series. The series allows indie developers to revise Croteam’s famous shooter using their own unique styles. Double D, for instance, is a classically-styled side-scroller with Serious Sam’s stank stank rubbed vigorously throughout.
I should point out that Double D does have one very important new feature; players are allowed to stack their guns. That’s right, if you’re in a situation that requires the simultaneous use of a laser cannon and a rocket launcher, Double D gives you the means to be successful. Or, if you just like shooting several guns at once, Double D has you covered there as well. Evidently, Mommy’s Best Games, the developer behind Double D, has taken the “Guns are awesome” element very seriously.
Serious Sam: Double D is heading to your PC on August 30th.
