Serious Sam: Double D makes downloadable debut next week

Mommy's Best Games entry in the Serious Sam Indie Series hits PC storefronts on August 30, Xbox 360 edition to follow.

The Serious Sam Indie Series is set to kick off next week, as Serious Sam: Double D will launch August 30 on Steam, Get Games, and other PC downloadable game storefronts. The previously announced Xbox 360 edition of the game will follow at a later date.

This monkey means business.

Following up on Mommy's Best Games' Xbox Live Indie Games offerings like Shoot 1UP and Weapon of Choice, Double D is a side-scrolling run-and-gun shooter based on the Croteam icon. Beyond the change in genre, Mommy's Best Games is also introducing a new "Gunstacker" mechanic, which players can use to simultaneously wield a cross-section of the game's 32 firearms.

That small arsenal of options will help Sam shoot his way through Double D's 18 levels, taking on vintage Serious Sam villains like the headless, bomb-handed kamikaze soldiers and some new creatures like the Vuvuzelator, a sentient stack of pancakes with a plethora of protruding vuvuzelas. The game also includes four major boss fights and three distinct time periods.

The remaining two installments in the Serious Sam Indie Series--Be-Rad's auto-running Serious Sam: Kamikaze Attack and Vlambeer's turn-based role-playing game Serious Sam: The Random Encounter--will also be released at a later date, along with Serious Sam 3: BFE for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.

Interesting. I wish they would do something else FPS with this series. So far, every attempt at another Serious Sam FPS has ended up in failure. But, I do like that series that ended up kind of in the gutter are being given extra life through these sidescrolling games. First Bloodrayne, now SS. I wonder what next.

Ok, that sounds fricking awesome XD, I'm still wondering what are they going to ask for system requirements though, the GTX 480 recommendation of Serious Sam BFE scared me a little bit.

The Vuvuzelator sounds like the most fearsome enemy ever.

I'm most psyched about Random Encounter, personally. It looks to be a hilarious take on the series that introduces some really interesting gameplay mechanics that we haven't really seen in any RPG before.
