The Serious Sam franchise is known for being pure unadulterated action overload, with hordes of enemies, buckets of viscera, and unrelenting violence saturating every nook and cranny of the series. Now, with Serious Sam 3: BFE right around the corner, developer Croteam and publisher Devolver Digital have given several indie studios the opportunity to capture the signature Serious Sam spirit by creating games of their own using the IP.
The first one to be released is Mommy’s Best Games’ Serious Sam: Double D, a 2D action side-scroller that boasts bizarre enemies, and an absolutely ridiculous gimmick called the Gunstacker. Does it, uh, stack (hurr durr) up to the original series, and do Serious Sam proud?
Uh, hell motherlumping YES.
