Croteam has become famous during 2001 when they have released the first Serious Sam game. They wanted to make a game without a serious plot because they wanted to focus on fast-paced gameplay, unending waves of enemies, and frantic action.
The rising of a Croteam
Their first game was a success, and it managed to accrue a cult following. Even tho Croteam is working on new games, they have always tried to update their older games – which is one of the things why the small Croatian developer is popular.
The first Serious Sam game has already been remade two times. But Croteam decided to remake the game for the third time. Today, you can play the first Serious Sam game remade in the latest version of the Serious engine for VR. The name of the game is Serious Sam VR: The First Encounter.
Developers have been working hard on rebuilding the entire game from the ground up. And it shows. The game looks gorgeous. And this time you can experience it in VR!
Serious Sam VR: The First Encounter comes packed with 15 large-scale levels, ten weapons, and all of the pesky enemies from the first game like Beheaded Kamikaze, Arachnoid, Gnaar, and Kleer Skeleton.
If you by some weird coincidence get bored with single player, you will be glad to know that you can experience the fast-paced multiplayer action using VR. You and up to 15 other people can play together against the maniacal creatures. You can finish the entire game with your friends. But you can also compete against the other players to show who can achieve the highest score. Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch are modes where friends can destroy each other in massive chaotic battles.
Serious Sam VR: The First Encounter is available on Steam’s Early Access for $39.99. If you own the previous versions of the game, you will receive a discount – this is a nice gesture from the developers.
If you own a VR device, this is one of those games that are sure to make you spend a lot of time on it. It is fun, fast-paced, funny, and affordable. Be sure to check this awesome title out!
