Exclamation NOT SERIOUS SAM 4 - Immortal Redneck

Today, I have discovered an upcoming old school rouge-lite FPS which, like Serious Sam, is set in Egypt. The name is Immortal Redneck, developed by a studio named Crema.

YouTube Video: Maybe like Serious Sam but better.


You have to explore three danger-filled pyramids with your 50+ weapons, such as magic, modern and futuristic weapons. Also, POTATO LAUNCHER AND THE SFG 9000!

Check the site here: http://www.immortalredneck.com/

My only problem with this that it is a roguelite.

That looks awesome, like a cartoony stylistic lovechild of Serious Sam and Painkiller.

I'm actually okay with that, as long as it brings the good elements to the table.

I share the same concern as Solais. Seems like every developer these days can't just make a good, imaginative game with great thoughtful gameplay, so they rely on gimmicks instead.

If 100% replayability from randomized levels is a gimmick, then I'd happily take that gimmick.

Variety can be applied to design even with proper progression and a lengthy campaign. Roguelites usually have neither of those, and as such, they are too short for me to really enjoy. I'm someone who usually plays games only once (unless the game is REALLY good), so for me, roguelites are just really-really short and unsatisfying games.

Yep, now I am concerned that this game has permadeath. But I saw somewhere in the official Immortal Redneck site that you "can't go back to square one."

That was my 1st impression also.
But, I see a LOT of games in there. It looks like they took (stole) a bunch of levels from every FPS game ever made.

But, I still want it!

You're more surprised at rednecks in Egypt than immortal rednecks? Personally I think immortal rednecks are scary.

Seems like the location is just randomly chosen for a game that could be set anywhere.

Looks like level design is dead.

With these rogue-like games, it seems people are misunderstanding that retro FPS is about the shooting experience. I mean, yes, old FPS are all about the shooting experience, but how they achieve it is different from these roguelikes. The objective is these types of game only seems to be killing and surviving as far as you can, whereas old FPS (at least the late 90s ones; the ones before are basically roguelikes without procedural levels) are about an objective or goals set throughout the game. There's high points and low points and stuff like that, which is just impossible without being handcrafted. Even if the story is barebones, it's still an experience as opposed to a time-waster.

Also, the 'immortal redneck in Egypt' theme of the game seems like those quirky weird lolrandomz "Egypt and guns? Didn't see that coming, huh!" kind of stuff like Boredomlands, Earthbound, and Undertale (and also SS2, to an extent). Yes, SS is also weird, but that's because it's a genuinely weird, one-of-a-kind shit that you can't just make up instead of an attempt at being weird. It's the difference between Hall of Fame threads and threads that try to get into Hall of Fame.

Game looks cool though, maybe I'll buy it if it gets 75% off.

I am with PikaCommando with this. Let's take a promising set of mechanics that will engage the player for a long time, and then RUIN it by creating a randomly-generated course that lasts for only 40-80 minutes tops, and to get ALL the content, you'll have to do this over and over at least 20 times!

Whatever happened to good level design? It's one of the most important aspects of a good FPS, and they're not even TRYING.

It's supposed to, the problem is trailers can't really ever capture the longevity of a game.

True, but my experiences with these types of games can fill in the gaps. As much as I loved Ziggurat, I was disappointed with how quickly it got old for me, it took me only 3 tries and normal and 5 on hard to get my first win. In the end, I put it down only after a couple of weeks. At that point, I mastered all of the hazard courses, was able to take down large hordes of high-tiered enemies with just the wand, and was able to find the secret rooms almost 100% of the time. There was nothing more to explore. The reason why it did not last long is the lack of tileset updates after the fact, there was no 2nd chapter after fighting the big boss, and there weren't any plans for it.

I am just worried that Immortal Redneck will turn out this way instead of how The Binding of Isaac got expanded upon over the ages.

The progression system kinda kills it for me. I really don't like progression systems at all if it's not an RPG or if it makes a lot of sense a la Far Cry 3. And even then, it needs to be done properly or it's just a slog.
