What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Serious Sam: Tormental (SST) is already fully playable and good enough to enjoy. We want to use Early Access to make it bigger and better, so there will be much more content in the final version and we will also balance the game with every update. We will work very closely with the community to improve the game and release regular updates with new content, fixes and community suggestions.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“SST is planned to be in Early Access for around 2-3 months to add what we have planned. Depending on how we hit our internal milestones, the EA sales results and requested features from community, we could go up to 12 months.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version will have lots of additional and improved content, including new areas, characters, weapons and boss fights.
Improved leaderboards, daily runs, localizations and other social features are also planned to be incorporated as the community grows.
We will be directly looking to the community to determine how and when new features and content gets added.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

  • 3 areas to explore
  • 4 boss fights to survive
  • 4 playable characters to master
  • 20 weapons to shoot with
  • 20 upgrades to mix and match

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The price will start at a lower point as a thank you to all the people who supported us in this stage of development and will increase gradually as more content will be added to the game and we get closer to full release.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We will communicate directly with our community primary through the SST Discord Server ( and SST’s Steam Community Forum.

We are looking for different types of feedback:

Game balancing:
We want challenging, but fair and enjoyable experience. If you find some challenges that are too hard and unfair to players, please report them so we can fix them. We are aiming for that sweet spot between challenging game and broken controller and we’re counting on the community helping out with this.

Suggestions and ideas:
We actively encourage members of the community to contribute their ideas on how to improve the game with new content or design ideas. We have a pretty clear vision of what we want to create, but we'd like to be able to incorporate any awesome ideas we receive from you where possible.

We already worked so hard to provide bug-free experience in the current state of the game. However with new content we expect new bugs to pop out, which will be dealt promptly.”

Tormental - Serious Weapons

Hi everyone!
In today’s post we will be talking a lot about serious weapons! In Serious Sam: Tormental we are adding bunch of completely new weapons to the usual Serious Sam roster. Along with using some of your favorites from the Serious Sam series, you will be able to demolish Mental’s hordes in ways you never could before! So let’s get started, so we can finish this quickly and get back to destroying, smashing, and burning stuff!

Harpoongun: shoot deadly sharp harpoons that stab into the flesh of your enemies and take them on a ride - until they hit the wall and explode! This is especially effective when combined with exploding enemies like the Kamikazes, as it will turn your harpoons into missiles of mayhem. It's like spearfishing, but with more explosions.

Electric Shotgun: shoots quick bursts of electricity which shocks the enemies and spreads the electric joy to any other enemies that might happen to be nearby. Let’s connect!

Boomerang: this little puppy will follow you around the level, making it possible to guide it towards the enemies and hit them multiple times. If it manages to get back to you after it has done its job, it will return you all the ammo it consumed.

Most of these weapons can be also leveled up at the weapons shop. Higher-level versions are usually more effective, but also spend more ammo.

Flamethrower: unleashes fountains of flame onto your enemies, making for a nice bonfire. The only drawback is that they will start moving rapidly, and shooting frantically, so better stay back and enjoy the show until they are burned to a crisp. Can be also used to start a nice BBQ.

Flamethrower Twin: adds an additional turret, longer range of fire (literally), requires double the fuel and stronger muscles to wield.

Machinegun: transforms into the Triple Machinegun. Double cost, triple bullets, and lots more spread, making it more efficient against multiple targets. Although emptying the clip into an enemy's face at point-blank range also works just great.

Powered-up Homing Missiles: now shoots 3 homing missiles which hunt enemies down, and also destroy any wall they happen to crash into. Caution is advised when the enemies are standing right next to you, as the explosion might just take you along with them... unless you have the Atomic Skin perk equipped, that is!

In this post we showcased 7 of the 38 weapons we currently have ready for the Early Access version, and that is only to start with!

What weapon would you like to see in the game? Do you have any deep, dark desires for the ultimate weapon of impling destruction? Hit us up with your ideas, and remember: “It ain’t the size that matters, it’s how you use it!” Unless it’s a rocket launcher… then it is the size.
