Dutch boutique developer Vlambeer has released a new trailer to show off Serious Sam: The Random Encounter. It's the third of the Serious Sam Indie Games (following Double D and Kamikaze Attack) - and is set to take the franchise in an exciting new direction. Or old direction, I suppose.
See, The Random Encounter is a retro-styled turn based RPG that challenges players to throw down on hordes of up to 400 enemies with a selection of weapons, characters and attacks. It looks mightily excellent, and we've got the trailer and full details after the jump.
Here's the skinny, courtesy of Vlambeer themselves:
