Default What is this game?

http://i.imgur.com/AY99it2.png

What is it? I've seen a few glimpses of it here and there on some videos, but I can't seem to find any info of it. It seems to have been in development around the same time as the other Serious Sam indie titles (2011-ish), but unlike Random Encounter, Kamikaze Attack and Double D has no articles or anything about it. This particular screenshot is from FrameRater's SS3 review.

Serious Sam: The Greek Encounter. A shitty indie game that tried to do what Bogus Detour did infinitely better.

...Huh. The only place where it was possible to get is gone now, and there's literally no advertisements for it, apart for like 2 videos.

Good thing that Bogus Detour came to be and gave us a good top-down Sam game.

EDIT: I just saw that it was done by Eric Ruth games, the same guy who did Team Fortress Arcade and something else as well. That actually explains a lot, since he's not really known for making quality products. At least the game was free.

I like how some people apparently thought that Bogus Detour was the same thing as Greek Encounter. Pretty funny. But that also kinda feels like an insult. Rude.

I just made an oversimplified analogy that they're both top-down, and TGE tried to be an awesome game like BD is.

Oh I know, I mean on the Steam forums for Bogus Detour there were a few people who legitimately thought that we had taken TGE and improved it.

Man i wonder that Top Down Shoot 'em Ups are still a thing, played years ago Shadowgrounds & 1 Shadowground clone.

Must be 10 years ago.

Otherwise a SS Breakout clone could be worth my attention, somehow. Strange World.
