Serious Sam Fusion 2017 gets First and Second Encounter

serious sam fusion 2017 first and second encounter on linux plus vulkan support in gaming news

The big news floating around #VR and #Vulkan support from Croteam gaming. Hence the publisher outlines, “Chaos incarnate #Croteam and professional hype-people Devolver Digital have launched Serious Sam VR: The First Encounter. As well as Serious Sam VR: The Second Encounter on HTC Vive and Oculus Rift via Steam.”
Which is great in terms of expansion and better native support. We do not own a VR headset at all. Right now it seems to be a big costly to “play around with” for occasional gaming.

Yet the now added First Encounter and Second Encounter on Linux is great news. Even moreso seeing we have some solid Vulkan and 64-bit support now. While in our test, the Vulkan graphics change seems to have the game crashing. Right after selecting the difficulty, waiting on the loading screen, following by the “continue” option. Voila, the game crashes. Has anyone else has this issue in the Serious Sam Fusion 2017 bundle?

So now players can visit South America, ancient Mesopotamia and Medieval Europe on Linux. Of course Croteam advise bringing a chainsaw or two. Hence the dual-wield weapons or using the arsenal in deathmatch. Either way, this is a native port and that means not having to run Windows.

While Serious Sam: The Second Encounter sees a free Serious Sam Fusion 2017 update. Now bringing cross-platform co-op and other multiplayer modes (VR vs non-VR) plus Steam Workshop support. So this is a very decent update indeed. With some seriously welcomed features.

Serious: The Second Encounter is launching with a special 25% discount (until April 11th). Available on Steam for both Linux and Windows. So if you already own any other Serious Sam VR game. There’s also an additional 25% discount which is stackable.

Serious Sam HD: The First Encounter and The Second Encounter coming to Linux, Android, and iOS


Serious Sam,  even a single gamer worth their salt who can say that they haven’t played it. And now both Serious Sam HD: The First Encounter & The Second Encounter are being #ported to Android, along with the promise of a Linux and iOS version too, in all of its #highdefinition glory. The confirmation came directly from the horse’s mouth, a #developer from Croteam Games. The announcement was made on a Steam Community board in response to a question posed by a community member.

The actual post reads as follows, “This is something that I was hinting at for months already, and it will come. We will be retrofitting all of the older games (the HD versions, not the classics), onto all the new platforms as we come to support them. But more on that later. So, in short – yes, there will be SSHD:TFE/TSE on Android (as well as OSX, Linux…) – at a point. Actually, we can more-or-less run those already, besides the SS3. It just needs some more fixes and tuning to be available at the same time. You’ll hear more about it when the time comes.”

So there you have it! Not only is this an announcement of the game coming to Android devices, but also a confirmation of the game as almost done, albeit the need for fixing of some issues and tuning. From what we CAN gleam from that information, we can pretty much expect the game in the very near future. So all those people, like me, who have had awesome memories of blowing up headless boxers can now enjoy the game on the go too and relive those glorious memories as people commuting with you stare at you in awe!
