It's that time again, ladies and gentlemen! Time for an update. But not just any update! An update with a lot of fixes and features.

We'd also like to tell you a little bit about ourselves. Who's Alligator Pit, really? What's changed since the last time we introduced ourselves to the community? Read more about it here, on our latest official blogpost!

Talking about community contributors, we'd also like to showcase our brand new achievement icons! Check them out on Steam! They were made by this guy, check out his other stuff!

Also, we created a brand new documentation website for information about dedicated servers, scripting, and more! Check it out at http://docs.samrev.com/. This documentation can be contributed to on Github as well, so feel free to submit any pull requests if you have anything to add.

  • Added a new mutator: Enemies Replacer. This randomly replaces enemies in any level with random special character types.
  • Added a Pitch property to SoundHolder entities.
  • Added a default dedicated server controller addon: the Combative Creature Cutter, also known as CCC. You can add admins, kick people, or invoke votekicks. (More documentation about this soon!)
  • Updated the Bromscript scripting engine.
  • Added new (old) variants of Elementals: Earth and Wind.
  • Added some more customization options to Grunt and Firecracker.

  • Fixed stats not always saving correctly when playing multiplayer.
  • Fixed the way secondary fire, Netricsa, and Use controls were conflicting with each other. They are now all separate controls. This also avoids confusion.
  • Fixed a bunch of minor level issues.
  • Fixed a bunch of minor networking issues.
  • Fixed a bunch of minor graphical issues.
  • Fixed a bunch of crashes.
  • Fixed a few survival exploits.
  • Lots of internal code changes that will allow us to roll out fixes even faster!

Serious Sam Classics: Revolution is a unified version of the Croteam's original Serious Sam Classic: The First Encounter and Serious Sam Classic: The Second Encounter experience, which is currently in development by Alligator Pit, an indie development team made of Serious Sam fans with the support of Croteam. Serious Sam Classics: Revolution, along with newly developed content by Alligator Pit, also includes all levels from both Classics and is powered by an updated Serious Engine 1 featuring all-new advanced graphics shader support, full 64-bit compatibility, full Steamworks integration, and lots of bug fixes for a superior game experience. Serious Sam Classics: Revolution is a standalone product and it is completely free to those Steam users that already own both original Serious Sam Classic games on Steam (Serious Sam Classic: The First Encounter and Serious Sam Classic: The Second Encounter).

Development team Alligator Pit is comprised of Angelo, Rakanishu, Bromvlieg, Solais and many other dedicated Serious Sam fans from around the world.

  • Various Environments and Secrets - Unleash mayhem in 4 spectacular locations: Ancient Egypt, Mayan Civilization, Persian Empire and Medieval Europe. Discover over 100 secrets spread throughout the battlefield!

I will update this review after i play it, but I wanted to post this complaint so its seen and fixed, or so someone can tell me where to find it. I do not know how to disable mods downloaded from the Workshop. I have not been able to find a section in the main menu dedicated to it. Please implement this and I would probably have no complaints as I have played Serious Sam since its original Xbox days and still love it. 9/10 would collect more kleer skulls.

Don't bother with this, this "enhanced" port does not add or retain any significant important core features to bring it to the modern era of games, instead, a few features were cut off, and in their place a ton of minor enhancements were put. Bugs with widescreen FoV are still abound, like camera clipping, MiP Mapping issues, brush rendering bugs, instability, and netcode that has absolutely no correction algorythms to compensate for the eventual drift between the host's and the client's games. A lot of these bugs were bugs I pointed out long before the game got put on Steam, and they never got touched upon.

Another poor implementation is how workshop items are handled. Sometimes items conflict with each other and causes hard crashes, and what needed to be done is to disable items one by one until the problem is identified. The thing is, the game has no internal Workshop manager system like you see in Serious Sam HD and Serious Sam 3, and plus, SSRev doesn't even bother with cleaning up the Workshop folder, so one would have to unsubscribe from the item, then manually search out the files in question that matches said item, and delete them one by one. A proccess that has been made needlessly cumbersome.

You're far better off sticking to the original Classics version and tinkering with console commands to tweak your settings. At least then, you have access to content that will never be ported to SSrev, like fully-fledged mods.

Cheap way to get serious sam 1st and 2nd encounters with splitscreen and steam workshop.
This also includes both original versions of the games, If you want those.

Serious sam games are action packed horde shooters(?) With imaginative enemies and interesting locations.

Classic FPS shooter that's still spooky now with headphones in the dark. 100% worth it just for the nostalgia. You get Serious Sam 1 & 2 plus a new community made game with multiplayer functions. It's a no-brainer.

This is a long review so if you just want a brief summary of why I recommend Serious Sam Classics: Revolution then skip to Results and read from there.

Alligator Pit manufactures the original in all new light with dazzling new interface and cleaned up visuals. Serious Sam Classics: Revolution revitalizes the classic games taking on similar ideas as the HD remakes by creating a game with cleaner performance.

Serious Sam: Revolution includes the first and second encounters, which means instead of paying $34.00 for both the First and Second Encounter you can get them both for $9.99 (without being on sale). Although, what you are probably wondering is what else is included in Serious Sam Classics: Reovlution? To name a few better graphical options, steam support, new campaigns, new bosses, improved UI, level editors, and much more.

Campaign:
The First Encounter:
For those who already own the first encounter you should probably skip this. This campaign includes thirteen main story levels and two secret levels. All of the levels take place in Egypt and are about the story of how Serious Sam began his quest to save humanity from Metals domination. The original campaign offers hours of gameplay as the levels are incredibly large and filled with secrets. The levels are composed of fighting mass hordes of enemies, solving puzzles, and completing objectives. During the campaign you will fight three bosses: Highlander Aludran Reptiloid, Lava Golem, and Ugh-Zan III. The brilliant group fights and epic boss fights keep you on your toes constantly engaged in a changing environment.

The Second Encounter:
For those who already own the second encounter you should probably skip this. This campaign includes twelve levels (no secret levels), but it also includes the entire campaign from Serious Sam The First Encounter. The campaign is divided across three kingdoms: Mayans, Persia, and medieval Poland. Similar to the First Encounter the second encounter is incredibly long, the levels are large and filled with secrets. The Second Encounter creates even more puzzles, crazier secrets, and throws more enemies at you than imaginable. Not only will you be engaged in all the mysteries abound, but the campaign also provides four bosses: Kukulkan, The Wing God, Exotech Larva, Mordekai the Summoner, and The Ram-God. The Ram-God is from Legend of the Beast DLC, which I assume is going to be implemented into Serious Sam Classis: Revolution.

Bright Island:
I have no information on this campaign, as it is not available in the early access beta.

Space Crusader (Possible Additional Campaign):
This campaign will include the following levels: Water Planet, Lava Planet, Green Planet, Ice Planet, Tropic Planet, and Rock Planet. Although none of this is mentioned, there are hints that this is being implemented based on the screenshots. The screenshots show that they may finally implement the scrapped levels and weapons from the Original Serious Sam. One of the weapons in the screenshots is the Ghost Buster (it looks like it shoots electricity) which was never implemented in the original campaign. it looks like this weapon is being used on the Rock Planet, which is one of the many various planets that was never included in the Serious Sam Campaign. The original campaign would have been over double the size if they finished developing most of the levels they had planned, but for various reasons they were cut. This makes me hope that this edition is finally fulfilling the original dream for Serious Sam and bringing the campaign in its full glory.

Graphical Additions:
The actual quality of the textures is the same as you would see in the HD remakes, although what Serious Sam Classics: Revolution offers is more than just a HD texture experience. It provides modern day graphical elements including: lens flares, fog, object bending, object translucency, smoother particle animation, haze, high resolution reflections, better portal animations, cleaner lighting, higher shading controls, and more. You can see all of these in action by checking out the Technology Test, which provides you with clean visuals of how these will be seen when implemented into the new campaign.

Steam Functionality:
Finally Serious Sam will have access to the workshop, and proper steam servers. The game is supposed to offer up to 42-player multiplayer and even support split screen. The game will come with a level editor, so if they don’t come out with space crusader or sky city someone will. Review Update Serious Sam Classics Revolution has been out now for almost two-half weeks, since then there has been a bundle of added content to the workshop. These include remodeling of textures, multiplayer maps, and even a custom campaign. SSCR has a lot of to offer, and if the community support continues in this fashion this will be an amazing addition to the series.

Results:
At this current point Serious Sam Classic: Revolution is not complete, but lets be honest Croteam and Devlover Digital completed Serious Sam HD in a timely manner; I am sure that you will not be waiting forever, unlike some Early Access Games. This game has a lot of potential with its new graphics engine, level editor, providing the original campaigns, better menu UI, cleaner animations, steam support, and so much more. I would buy this game at full price, but on sale it’s like you are robbing Croteam.

Pros:
+Great new OpenGL shaders and 64-bit support to create a much cleaner and graphic intensive game.
+Steam workshop support
+Steam servers for multiplayer (supports up to 42 players)
+Includes Serious Sam First and Second Encounter
+New Survival Mode
+Already mention of new Bright Island Campaign
+A level editor, so you can go crazy and make your own Serious Adventures
+Loads of enemies and bosses
+Lots of guns to choose from
+Already downloaded my first custom campaign, thanks Workshop support!

Cons:
-Its early access
