Veteran Indie Outfits Behind 3 Spinoffs!
Devolver Digital has announced that it's set to reveal three new licensed Serious Sam titles today - and after a little digging, we've got a few details for you prior to the official announcement. Three established Indie studios will be developing the projects and are set to deliver a serious take on traditionally casual games. Nathan Fouts, the weapons designer behind the Resistance and Ratchet & Clank series, has confirmed to us that his studio is working on one of the projects.
UPDATED: We have the full details below, courtesy of a new press release!
According to a new tweet from Devolver Digital, the publisher behind the Serious Sam series, three new games are set to reveal today. Mommy's Best Games, Be-Rad Entertainment and Vlambeer Games will each be developing a project for PC and possibly mobile devices.
Update: And here are the three new titles in all their glory!
- Serious Sam: Double D: Mommy's Best Games are on the case to apply their intimate knowledge of 2D sidescrollers to the Serious Sam franchise. Considering that Explosionade deserved a whole Indie Game Of The Week column to itself... and he's the developer behind the weapons from Ratchet & Clank... this should be awesome.
- Kamikaze Attack! In this mobile release, players will control the iconic headless Kamikazes in a race to destroy humanity. Be-Rad Entertainment are no stranger to making slick mobile games, so we'll keep a close eye on this one.
- Serious Sam: The Random Encounter. Dutch studio Vlambeer are taking a very different tack with their offering. It's going to be - wait for it - a turn-based RPG of all things. We can't wait!
Nathan Fouts, the CEO of Mommy's Best Games and no stranger to our interviews/Indie roundups, has told me that the title is indeed in development and more details are incoming.
Yes, we are working on a new Serious Sam game! They (Devolver Digital) should be making the full announcement today. It will have screens of our game too! Our game is not Kamikaze Attack, but a 'half screen' is the one on the FB page with the pie as the sun. Once they announce, I can talk more! - Nathan Fouts via email
Devolver Digital are set to make their official announcement today, and we'll update this article with all the details.
