Croteam has been around for almost three decades, and to be honest, we have dedicated much of that time to Serious Sam. What was once a childhood dream – developing video games for a living – became a reality because of a shooter game with an arguably ridiculous but certainly catchy name.
Serious Sam is a product of our passion, and it has been a part of our lives, even beyond our working hours. Because of that love, we have always tried to share the Serious Sam experience with every shooter fan out there, and bringing the series to Xbox One is another significant step towards our end goal.
Ever since launching Serious Sam on the original Xbox back in 2002, which was incredibly well-received, we knew we would return, and this time with a bang – the mighty Serious Sam Collection, an anthology of sorts, that includes some of our finest work in the series, including Serious Sam HD: The First Encounter, Serious Sam HD: The Second Encounter, and Serious Sam 3: BFE.
Whether you’re roaming the old tombs of Egypt in The First Encounter, exploring the pyramids of South Africa in The Second Encounter, or fighting giant flying alien spaceships in BFE, you are guaranteed to have endless unfiltered fun. Blowing up enemies never gets old, and from our experience, it’s a perfect way to relax after a hard day’s work. It allows you to let off some steam, whether alone or with friends. And finally, while we never promoted Serious Sam as a game that relies heavily on the story, the narrative is there, and the universe provides much to those that are looking to explore it.
We take immense pride in the fact that our game development mission hasn’t changed since day one. So, while every subsequent Serious Sam game is quite different from the previous one, with new enemies, environments, and game mechanics, they all share the same core and feeling you get while playing, and you immediately know that’s Serious Sam. This Collection allows us to provide players with a single package that captures everything special about our beloved series, and we can’t wait for everyone to get “Serious” on Xbox One, now that’s available now!
