Default Serious Sam HD participates in Steam Summer Sale activities... new DLC as a prize

Man, you guys haven't noticed this yet? The Steam Summer Sale went live earlier today, and the HD games are on sale for 66% off. More importantly, Steam is running a little game where you can earn tickets by getting achievements in various games, and then trade them in for prizes. One of the prizes is a new DLC pack for The Second Encounter HD which adds 8 new multiplayer character models. You can get it by trading in 3 tickets, which means you have to get 3 achievements from their list.

It's worth noting that Devolver Digital hinted there will be an influx of SSHD owners this coming monday. That could mean the HD games will be a daily deal on monday for an even bigger discount, or it could mean one of the SS:HD achievements will get you a ticket for that day. Or it could be both, we'll just have to wait and see.

Links:

Steam Summer Sale Prizes (SS DLC is on the bottom row)

Serious Sam HD Gold Edition: $13.59
Serious Sam HD Double Pack: $10.19
First Encounter HD: $5.09
Second Encounter HD: $6.79

I didn't read anything about new achievements.

Acquire three existing ones that you haven't acquired yet and you can get new multilayer models.

Characters are mostly female.
Dark Delilah,
Cocoa Carla,
Cobalt Cinderella,
Green Greta,
Silver Sarah,

Canned Cain,
UghZahnIII, & <--wtf?
William Wytee


There should be screenshots of the models. What the flop is up with that?

Read up on the Steam Summer Camp thing on their page. Each game in the promotion is getting new achievements that equate to points. Three points get's you one of the prizes like the new SSHD: SE character models. SSHD: SE will have two new achievements posting on Monday...

How come the sale is not on the list of specials? Nobody is going to realize it is on sale unless they specifically check the game listing.

New achievement has been added for SSHD: TFE: Swimming Instructor. It doesn't seem to be working right now though; I managed to lure a Kamikaze and a Gnaar into underwater at Oasis and have it die via drowning, but it didn't register.

Here's a list of what will drown and what won't in the first part of Oasis:

Kleer: No

Red Biomech: No. He can never get close enough to be lured underwater. He'll stop about right before the water starts and spam you with rockets.

Harpy: No. If you force her to get into her "walk on the ground" mode and get her where she should go completely under the water, she'll bob up and down like a buoy and never actually drown.

Kamikaze: Yes.

Gnaar: Yes.

I drowned a Kamikaze and a Gnaar multiple times, but it didn't register. I figure that's probably because it hasn't updated my game to add the new "definition" for it or w/e.

The Specials tab is limited to 100 games. There are way more than 100 games on sale right now, so most of them aren't on that list. Plus, it's likely SS:HD will be one of the daily deals like it was during the holiday sale. It'll get front page exposure then.

As for the achievement not registering yet, a lot of the new achievements for this sale haven't been registering at first. I'd just wait until monday, since that's the day the achievement(s?) will officially become part of the whole Summer Camp promotion.

The big question is:

When will the new characters be available?

Suddenly updates, to every Serious Sam HD thing, even the editor. I wonder what is it!

EDIT1: Though for some reason they always suspend themselves and everything.

EDIT2: They work now.
The First Encounter update added the Flamethrower and the Chainsaw to FE?

EDIT3: The Second Encounter update added the intro text from FE? This is Weird.

The models are pretty damn disappointing. Only 1/8 seems to be new. It does, however, give access to Ugh-Zan III for non-preorder players. The other 6 are recolours of previous models. I am disappointed. XD

Easy Peasey guide to getting the swimming instructor achievement:

1. Start Oasis in Easy mode.

2. When you get control of the player, turn left and go until you see a piece of armor. Grab it. A Gnaar will spawn.

3. Now, lure the Gnaar into the pool that you started in. This can be a bit tricky, as the Gnaar will stop moving if you get under it via jumping into the pool. If the Gnaar stops moving because you've jumped in the pool, get back to the ground level its on and slowly move to the pool so that it can follow you.

4. In order for it to die, it needs to be completely underwater. Once you've gotten to that point, swim above it and let it down to death. You'll get the achievement when its down.

For anyone still having trouble with the swimming instructor achievement, here's a pretty crappy/laggy demonstration:
http://video.xfire.com/49b23f-4.jpg

The key is to get the gnaar in front of where the drop-off is steepest, then just push him in. This sure brings back memories of intentionally drowning Mario in Mario 64...

Gnaar wouldn't go in, I kept going out then in the water, no dice, then a major biomech showed up and shot a rocket at the gnaar which pushed him in, and I was like "wow, thanks biomech!", then I paid my gratitude by giving him rockets.

You can get up on the other side of the pool. Then shoot him with anything.

Actually, if you jump while in the water, Sam will jump out of the water for a short moment and the gnaar will run at you as if you were on the ground. So basically, this step just involves jumping into the pool and then jumping out of the water till the gnaar goes all the way in.

Yeah, i know, i should have posted that last night .

I don't have The Second Encounter yet. So, if I choose the new multiplayer character models then I'm going to have them after I buy The Second Encounter?

P.S.: I'm finally back on the forums

Yeah, I just added the Portal 2 gear to my account without owning Portal 2 (yet), and the license shows up on my account.
