Holy shit, this thread just became infinitely more awesome. Thank you for taking the time to record this part of Serious Sam 2's history for us. The maps look really rough and unpolished, but you can see there's a lot of atmosphere already there, too bad a lot of it had to be scrapped or changed.

Heh, I'm glad you got the right spirit of this thread. All I was trying to say was "Let's dig in the past, to see can we reveal something for the future".

Btw - in VR, there are some scenes including sand planet + industrial platforms. Is this Pechina?

Enjoyed that coverage very much, thanks, Solais. Can't wait for SS3 reveals, and it'd have been great to see something related to Classic TFE/TSE beta stuff as well.

Orgasmic!

Now, how did you know what Solais didn't? coughcoughismellcorporateespionagecoughcoughcough Looks like the train station where Sam board the train to Mental's Institution.



Also, can anyone tell me how the fuck can anyone think Chi Fang, Prince Chan, and the last two Magnor levels were acceptable?
but i think the kleer bowling sounds were fine though

Really awesome to see those pictures of the development process. I actually appreciate the cartoon style as a one off thing and in terms of game play, Serious Sam 2 was amazing. The game is seriously underrated but it's a blast from the very start, throwing some awesome vehicles your way. Fighting those arachnids in the hovercraft was great whereas in the other games, the really cool parts don't come until much later, such as the jetpack battle in SS3.

Thumbs up Re: Serious Sam 2 BFM /SS2HD/ Serious Sam 2 Remake thread

Hi, there! Really loved the coverage of SS2's early content, especially the unused Cave Medium music. I swear there had to be some unused enemy and weapon sounds as well.

Anyway, about SS2 HD, I really hope it will come a long while after Serious Sam 4, which is actually a prequel of Sam 3: BFE. I'm thinking of HD Tank Biomechanoids, Albino Cyclopes, T-Mechs, you name it.

Thanks for the welcome, Discy.

Back on topic, I think SS2HD will be somewhat different from the original. We were so close to defeating Mental...

The SS2 Reboot will be very different from the original. Think of it as a new game, not a "HD remake".

Okay, when we talk about this "reboot" does it mean it will include scraped and unused ideas/concepts, making canon sequel/continuation of SE?

It will be a canon sequel to TSE, yes. It might reuse ideas, it might reuse unused concepts. It might have completely new ones.

Is Croteam seriously working on this? I thought that it was just a theoretical topic for what we would like to see in a SS2 HD remake. I already like SS2 for what it is minus the netcode that makes playing at 1 fps look good.

If this is actually in the works, then they have a lot of their plate - Talos 2, Sam VR, SS4, and now this.

Okay, in such a case why we call it "SS2 remake/reboot"? Just because original SS2 failed to be accepted as canon sequel? It can be called Serious Sam 5/6/ or 7, and still make sense.

I agree with BG. Maybe call that SS2 "Reboot" Serious Sam 5 or something

I call it "SS2 Reboot" because there's no official name for the project just yet, just "SS2 Reboot". It's not in development yet, but it is in planning. It will likely come before Talos 2, as that's not even really in planning yet, just that there'll be one. SamVR is a side project made by like 2 people.

You know how some levels in SS2 are split into two or three? Well, I think they should be merged together in that reboot. For example, Chanolin Chambers, Chanolin Temple, and Prince Chan (Level) should be combined into one. So should the prior two levels of Chi'Fang.

Levels should be longer and some chapters might need more maps. Our nightly playthrough with 8-12 people tends to end in 45 minutes or so on most chapters.

Now I guess additional levels can be included.
