New Blip: Serious Sam's Bogus Detour

Serious Sam's Bogus Detour is a 2D Serious Sam game from developer Crackshell (devlog), the team behind the top-down dungeon crawler Hammerwatch. While Serious Sam is known primarily for his enemy-spewing 3D outings, this is not his first foray into the land of indie-developed 2D, as he has previously blown up baddies in Serious Sam: Double D XXL, Serious Sam: The Random Encounter, and Serious Sam: Kamikaze Attack!.

In fitting with the developer's previous work, Sam's latest adventure sees him blasting his way through an isometric top-down environment with his traditional array of armaments, from standard small arms to lasers, rocket launchers, and miniguns. Familiar foes return in the form of Gnaar, Kleer Skeletons, and the infamous Beheaded Kamikazes, spewing forth in large numbers, per series conventions. Players can move and aim independently - although aiming is restricted to 8 directions - and destroyed enemies leave behind sprays of blood and chunky bits when killed. The game also offers 2P cooperative and competitive modes (no word on whether Huff will make an appearance).

The game is headed to PC, but does not yet have an announce release date.
