A lot of fan art for the franchise is centered around Sam and the monsters he fights. This is why this time, for our fan art roundup, we will share just that.
A cartoonish illustration of the Beheaded Rocketeer, Gnaar, Kleer, Adult Arachnoid, Werebull and Major Biomechanoid by BaconMonstrosity. The stylization of these drawings are pretty neat.
A nicely-done pencil sketch of the Beheaded Kamikazi by Maska322.
On the DevintArt side, we have a cartoonish drawing of Serious Sam looking badass with a large Minigun by SkunkDJ.
To the left, we have a fan art piece of Serious Sam as a professional cart driver by Kermad and commissioned by Pan for his upcoming Super Seriously! Kart mod. To the right, we have a traditional drawing of Serious Sam ripping a Gnaar's eye out by Kubi-Wan.
Hey there everyone, time for our next Weekly Showcase: A Day Late Again Version!
This week, we have four new updates, and yes, one of them is Finzy, as usual!
Something something Finzy, something something project. But seriously, this is a pretty cool new video about the Campaign version of Serious Box Solid. You can check the video below, and you can check out his showcase thread Here. As mentioned earlier, you get the new stuff at the end of the thread.
Maska322 have announced his new Serious Sam 1 Classic project, which seems to be a continuation of his "Journey to Hell" campaign! He just recently released a few screenshots, you can see two below. You can check out his showcase thread Here.
Emperor Danny have been remaking and porting SS1 enemies into Serious Sam 2 recently! It seems he is working on a project called Serious Sam 2 Advance. You can check out his showcase thread Here.
Devostator keeps on rolling with his very cool looking survival maps, that are usually inspired by locations in the Touhou Project games. It seems there are two new ones in the works! You can check out his showcase thread Here.
That is all for today.
See you next week!
This week at Seriously! we rush to a pyramid to save our best friend:
Saving Pvt. Pesko is custom campaign for Serious Sam 3: BFE featuring the usual Serious Sam 3 like gameplay through 4 long levels.After the quite different Lost Soul, we now have a very SS3-like adventure; as Marko says, "Serious Sam 3 has the influence the most. I wanted to make the level design as close as possible to Serious Sam 3 so it can feel like it's part of the story of the official game." And how he managed that! It's possibly one of the best campaigns out there, to say so myself!
We recently interviewed Marko and asked him about Saving Pvt. Pesko and you should check it out!
You can get Saving Pvt. Pesko in his forum thread
Hey there everyone, time for our fourth Weekly Showcase!
This week, it might seem that we got less updates than before. But that's actually not true, as every update is just as good as any other! (Also because we got a large project release too, which will be featured in an Interview Highlight.)
Finzy just can't sit tight for a single week without showing off yet another work of his! Now it seems to be about finishing old maps. You can check out his showcase thread Here. As mentioned earlier, you get the new stuff at the end of the thread.
noam2000 have been posting images that look like Serious Sam 2 maps converted to SS3? What could he be working on? You can check out his showcase thread Here. As mentioned earlier, you get the new stuff at the end of the thread.
Rakanishu cannot be stopped after his first release, he's already releasing some new screenshots from the rest of his projects! You can check out his showcase thread Here. As mentioned earlier, you get the new stuff at the end of the thread.
FireSeraphim just exploded into the community, displaying their awesome skills with a project thread! The mod project seems like a remake of an old, Egypt-themed FPS game called Powerslave/Exhumed. You can check out the project thread Here.
That is all for today.
See you next week!

Doodling results in artwork that is less polished, but often with more personality. And when it comes to Serious Sam fanart, personality is important. In the barrel today, we have a couple of scribbles that I found charming enough to showcase, and a couple of speed-paints of Serious Sam enemies that could work as a complete piece if they are brought together in a series.Check it out!
Here, we have a speed-paint of the Witch-Bride and the Kleer by the talented Kisek. You should check out her art blog.
A cute doodle of an angry Khnum in MSPaint, done by Arborix. She is a very talented artist who has a wide variety of styles, as evident with her art blog. She also manages a cute ask blog featuring Doom monsters.
Finally, we have a collection of scribble of various Serious Sam enemies by Lyfe.
Hey there everyone, time for our third Weekly Showcase! Sorry for the late post, but I was busy.
But others were pretty busy as well, so let us check what they released!

That is mostly all for this week. Now I know there's one more project that have been released this week... but that will get its own highlight soon!
See you next week!
On August 1st (last night), an intern at Devolver Digital was tasked to play the Pre-Beta version of Croteam's The Talos Principle. It didn't go well, but a whopping hour and 18 minutes of footage was streamed on Twitch TV.
Today, this footage was uploaded to Youtube, so if you want to know a little about the story and the gameplay of The Talos Principle, just watch the video right below!
The Talos Principle is being developed by Croteam, published by Devolver Digital, it is also written by Tom Jubert (FtL : Faster than Light and The Swapper) and Jonas Kyratzes (Infinite Ocean, a philosophical sci-fi adventure), and with a music score by Damjan Mravunac, the original composer behind the Serious Sam Franchise. Stay tuned for more news about the game as soon as they develop!
This week at Seriously! we take down Mental's Communication Tower in a large ruined city:
Approaching Hell is custom campaign for Serious Sam 3: BFE featuring Sam's romp through four levels of a large ruined city to take down Mental's Evil Communications Tower.
Considered to be one of the best early campaigns for Serious Sam 3, I'm sure that you all will have a great time helping Sam achieving his goal!
We recently interviewed NHunter and asked him about Approaching Hell and you should check it out!
You can get Approaching Hell on Steam Workshop.
Please note, for Approaching Hell to work you must also have the following installed: Ultimate Resource Pack
You can also check out the project thread of this campaign Here.
August 13-17, Croteam will showcase The Talos Principle at the biggest European gaming show GAMESCOM 2014 in Cologne, Germany.
They will be at the Indie MEGABOOTH grupation (visit hall 10.1) if any of you are within walking, driving, flying distance of the event.
In 2.5 hours, our very own Sly7745 is going to do a Speed Run of Serious Sam 3 : BFE for charity under the Tourist (Any%) category. He will be running the game at the European Speedster Assembly's Marathon, which is the European version of Awesome Games Done Quick and Summer Games Done Quick. All proceeds during the event will go do the Doctors Without Borders charity. I urge you all to visit the stream and give your support, and by donating to a great cause.
Hey there everyone, time for our second Weekly Showcase!
Last week was pretty busy it seems, as we have at least FIVE new works to show!
Marko is a relatively new mapper of the community, with a steady increase in skill with every work he's done. His latest works seems to be the best one yet, and he recently released a new Beta Gameplay trailer, which you can watch below! For more information, visit the project's thread Here.
Danker/Dankzaii have been one of those members of our community who have been working on smaller things, like player models and small mods, but never larger projects or campaigns. Last week, he have revealed his latest modelpack, which is centered around memes! Find out more in his project thread Here.
FranckyFox2468 exploded into the community very recently with his brilliant Serious Sam Comic. As it turns out, he's also a talented animator using the Source engine. But his later work... what could it be? For more information, visit the project's thread Here and Here .
Devostator is yet another veteran of ours with a long history of works. Lately, he have been working on Serious Sam 3 Workshop levels based on locations from the famous Japanese indie/doujin game series known as "Touhou Project"! He has been releasing screenshots for a while, if you maybe grew curious by the two posted below, you can check out his Showcase thread Here. Just make sure you check the latest pages, as it's a very large thread!
Last, but not least, our most regular interviewed modder, Finzy have shown activities again of working on something new! Did you like the multiplayer mod "Serious Box Solid?" Then you might be interested in a singleplayer version of it! You can check out his Showcase thread Here. Just make sure you check the latest pages, as it's a very large thread!
That is mostly all for this week. Now, there's one more project that have received some update last week, which is my own. It wouldn't feel right to advertise my own project - that is, Serious Sam HD Extended - in a news post written by me, but if you are curious, you can check its project thread Here.
That is all. See you next week!
Hello Serious Fans! Today I am declaring Open Season! This is a new event we'll be doing every Sunday for the foreseeable future. Every Sunday we want you to submit screenshots of your best kills in any Serious Sam game of your choice for the chance to win a free game. The rules are simple:
This is your chance to get rewarded for slaughtering your friends.. or enemies. So gear up for the blood bath because this Sunday is going to be messy.. and oh so good!
Keep firing soldier!
I Love Let's Plays, they are one of the best ways to share your own experiences of playing a video game to the viewing public, and these are especially enteraining when it involves a co-operative session with a couple of amusing personalities.
I bring this up because every so often, a Let's Play series has fan-art drawn for it, often involving the personalities playing as their in-game characters. In this instance, a co-operative Let's Play series of the much-underrated Serious Sam II gets fan-art drawn of it by one of the players/personalities. Check these out!
If you are interested, you can check out the artist's Youtube Channel where he posts a plethora of gaming videos. More specifically, the Serious Sam 2 Let's Play Playlist that he is currently uploading to Youtube as we speak.
That's all we have for now, stay tuned next time for more cosplay and fanart round-ups from around the internet, and as always, stay Serious!
Hey there everyone, let us present you a new kind of feature we decided to start as part of the "Seriously New Direction 2014", which is about YOU!
This new feature is named "Weekly Showcase". Similar to the monthly workshop roundup, the Showcase will be about highlighting any progress, screenshot, trailer, etc. of any Sam-related map or mod that's currently in the works on our forums. So basically, instead of focusing on completed works on the Steam Forums, the Showcase will focus mainly on incomplete works on the forums only (but it will also focus on project releases, patches and the like too).
The goal of the Weekly Showcase is to provide links to the showcases of the various great modders of our community to make their works more known; and not just for the large projects like with our Interview Highlights. This way, everyone who does any sort of small mod or map for the SS games might get their place in the highlight.
Of course, it might be possible that we miss some projects. If that happens, please mention that mistake to us and we make sure your stuff will be presented next week. We'd be also curious about any feedback about this feature, how we could improve, extend it!
Now for last week's great updates, we have three to show:
Pan's greatly unique Serious Karting project have recently released a brand new beta trailer, which you can watch below. There have been also other news about new kinds of car types, it seems? For more information, visit the project's thread Here.
In Maska332's showcase thread, alongside his brilliant art, some new screenshots have appeared about a new Egypt-themed level, created for Serious Sam 1. What could it be? Find out more in his Showcase thread Here.
Rakanishu is a veteran Classic Serious Sam 1 mapper, and he shows off his skills in a new campaign that will take Sam around the world yet again, and now, even outer space! He has been releasing screenshots for a while, if you maybe grew curious by the two posted below, you can check out his Showcase thread Here.
And that's all folks for the last week! See you again in a week!
