Serious Sam Forever Official Press:
|June 3rd, 2016||Final Version 1.009 Release
It has been six years since Serious Sam Forever entered the limelight as one of the coolest mods for Serious Sam 2. And today we are releasing the final version that we made (v1.009) for your enjoyment!
This version contains various minor bugfixes over v1.008 and a lot more asset files in case people want to pilfer some of our stuff for their Sam projects. It also contains a new mod launcher and updater so that it will work on the new website hosting. FYI, the additional assets are there for the next update to the mod: the Singleplayer Campaign.
Yes, we are going to release the campaign, in all of its very broken glory. Most of the maps are not finished and some seem to be barely even started. But we will be releasing it so that you can see what we did. If there are interested parties who want to continue development of these maps, please let Louva-Deus know.
To celebrate this new release we are hosting a launch event on June 12th (full info here). The download for this is available now
This version is compatible with the 2.070 retail version and the "old" Beta of the Steam Version. To get the "old" Beta you need to go into your Steam Library, right-click on Serious Sam 2, and go to the Betas tab. Once there select the "old" option and it will revert you back to the retail version.
|January 27th, 2010||A Word From The Project Manager
"After releasing the Multiplayer Demo I realized that I made a mistake in not including some key information about this project that has led to a lot of confusion outside of the Seriously! community," said Rexter Caed. "Serious Sam Forever, for those who are not aware, is a total conversion mod for Serious Sam 2. This means you must have Serious Sam 2 installed in order to play it."
"This is not a standalone product and it most certainly is not a mod for Serious Sam: The Second Encounter as one site has described it. It is a mod for a game we feel has been underappreciated: Serious Sam 2. It is a gift to a community we have loved for a very long time and it is a tribute to Croteam."
"Also, Serious Sam Forever is very different from Serious Sam HD and they should not be compared. If you want to know what the differences are then just try it out. Serious Sam 2 is really cheap to buy if you do not already have it."
"We hope you enjoy it. Post in the official Serious Sam 2 forum and let us know what you think of it!"

"After nearly four years of development and over 1000 revisions, many rewrites, and nearly starting over," John Turner began. "Phase one of Serious Sam Forever's development is over!"
"We are announcing the completion of the Multiplayer Demo featuring four maps, four game modes, and four hundred bots--given the right hardware conditions--on the twenty-fourth of January, 2010."
"The highlight of the demo, the multiplayer AI Bot system, is unparalleled in any time period and will give new and long-time players alike a fun new way to experience Serious Sam! Play alongside human and AI players in some of your favorite game modes like Capture the Flag and Deathmatch!"
"The team presents this gift to the community in the hopes of sparking a few million more hours of serious fun. Be sure to post videos of your exploits!"
You can download the old Serious Sam Forever Multiplayer Demo from here.

MP Open Beta!
"With all the Serious Sam HD hype going around and the questions it has generated about Serious Sam Forever," began John Turner, Project Manager of Prophets of Sam. "We thought it would be a good idea to show the world what Forever has in store for them."
"The Multiplayer Open Beta features three maps and supports four game types: Capture the Flag, Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, and 3-Way Deathmatch. The Beta also features our new Multiplayer AI Bot system. You will be able to play online with up to 16 friends and as many bots as your PC can handle. If you can host more than 100 bots be sure to post a video!"
You can sign-up for the Beta by filling out this application form. We will only use your contact information for the purposes of further development and to announce future releases.
