Default Serious Sam Origins


A game that should have been released back in the year 2000. The first, the one and only Serious Sam game, as it was planned. It is finally going to make its way to players and fans, late but not too late. Serious Sam Origins contains a finished story of Sam Stone; a story that was meant to be his only true one, but got separated into First Encounter, Second Encounter, Serious Sam 2, Serious Sam 3 and the yet to be released Serious Sam 4. In Origins, you will travel through distant times and planets, utilizing extraordinary weapons and meeting legendary foes. And finally, you are going to find out how Sam's story might have ended.

So, what is Serious Sam Origins?
  • It is a free modification for classic Serious Sam: The Second Encounter. It's being developed by a team of people from serioussite.ru.
  • This modification is based upon an actual pre-release version of the game kindly provided by Roman Ribarić.
  • It contains a singleplayer campaign that is 46 levels long and includes three episodes (Egypt, Planetoids and Sirius).
  • In this modification you will use original weapons from old version of the game, fight enemies in their original forms and gain information using Y-Knot, the predecessor to Netricsa.
  • Origins also contains deathmatch maps from pre-release version of the game, and will most likely support cooperative multiplayer.
  • It even has some extra content dating back to In The Flesh ages, like enemies you may encounter on secret levels.
  • Together with modification you will also get an original design document for the first Serious Sam game, as we were allowed to share it with fans upon the release.
  • You will fight Mental. This time for real, and for good.

Our dedicated team is working on finalizing the levels, merging them into a fully-fledged campaign and fixing problems that are in those old resources. At the moment, the porting part of our job is already completely finished, with all present levels working fine in SS:TSE v.1.07. Our planned release date is the end of 2013 or the beginning of 2014.

Kazuya: Both the Grenade Launcher and the Lasergun is real, it was in the alpha.

So, finally we see this project. Pretty good, you really have managed to fix up all the levels and problems. Looking forward to it.

Before someone brings up the thing in that Revolution newsthread:

Serious Sam Revolution and Serious Sam Origins are brother projects. Incidentally, they are also like the Protoss and the Zerg from Starcraft. They were both commissioned by Croteam CEO Roman Ribaric, in hope that in the end, we will merge the two projects and work together, finally reuniting the Russian community with the rest of the world.

The wrong cog in his machine was me, because as soon as I got permission to reveal the alpha content, I posted the news about it, before he could contact the Origins team about the same thing. This resulted in that little fight in the thread. Though Roman still says that it's also his fault that he never mentioned the other project to each of the teams.

However, after a long night of discussion, we have reached a solution: While Origins will be released sooner than Revolution, there will be also a version on Steam, standalone and bundled with Revolution. How that version will differ from the original is yet undecided, but we will announce this whole thing officially as soon as everything is decided.

This post is just by me to inform this community that there are no problems, no illegal leaks or anything here, this is a proper, Croteam backed project (though I guess Roman's post was a lot more convincing). Stay tuned for official announcements about all this as soon as it develops, later.

On the other hand, I'm curious about the music as well, since our Alpha resources got none originally.

Actually I checked, but can't see it. On the other hand, I can't read Russian.

Also, I'm pretty sure Mental looks different now as it looked in the Alpha, so it can be said to be not the "real Mental". It is also not an official game, it's just a mod which was made with the support of Croteam.

Yes, there's no music in alpha, so we've decided to restore it by our team. Necessary style of soundtrack was mentioned in the official design-document, and since it follows the spirit of the music from TFE/TSE Calssic, we'll use some tracks from these games, but we'll also add some additional tracks, which will fit the gameplay and follow the style mentioned in d-doc.

You'll see all of them in Origins since these weapons were represented in the original Alpha.

It is not likely for any kind of demo to be released, we would rather release a complete mod right away.
Mental is being recreated in accordance to the original design document created by Croteam. His model is not the only thing we had to recreate from available data; for example, the Sirius Sky City map could not be located anywhere, so we recreated it.

Hi, SS Origins Developers

When will you release a Test/Alpha/Beta Build of the Mod for Testing and stuff?
It would be cool to test it too?

I dont want to sound rude but i think i saw a problem with double barrel shotgun when i was watching the video.The part where barrels go out its kinda brown instead of gray if you look at the part when his switching from shotgun to ghostbuster you can see the tex problem on the shotgun.If you find some pictures online and you check the shotgun in the video you will know what im talking about.Just pointing out a glitch.This is a great project.

Hey dude, I have some questions for ya:

1. Will there be (not hidden) papyrus indicating the presence of a secret level?
2. Are the secret levels from In The Flesh, designed-to-be-secret levels maps from the original build or custom maps?
3. Can we get a screenshot of Y-Knot?
4. Will Sam talk?

1. Maybe.
2. They are from the original pre-release build, but are finalized by our team. For one of those levels we had to build about 90% of its content from scratch.
3. Yes, you'll see it next time when we upload a portion of materials related to the mod. Despite Y-Knot being ready on code side, we are still working on texts for it.
4. Yes. In Russian. If we don't find anyone willing to help us with voice acting.
