Talking Ir-Kalla Egypt Demo

It's finally released. I was about ready to release it, when our ISP decidedly screwed things up, leaving me nearly three weeks without a stable internet connection. This is a big moment for me, the first time I'm actually releasing anything to the public.

Without further ado, here it is!

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/31840/sf/2015-09/IkDemo1_Thumb.jpg https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/31840/sf/2015-09/IkDemo2_Thumb.jpg
Click for larger picture.

This one level demo contains a little taste of things to come: The first level of the Egypt episode of Ir-Kalla, roughly 25% of the episode, only a fraction of the whole campaign. It has one new area at the end to prevent the ending from being too abrupt. This level would be the eighth, so you already have a big starting arsenal and tougher opponents. Also, NETRICSA messages have been rewritten because you'd miss a ton of story context from previous levels with the original. You will get a playtime of 90-120 minutes on normal, 1400+ monsters, 13 secrets and much more. It also has full co-op support in the form of more and tougher monsters and co-op markers.

To install, simply extract the contents of the zip file to your Sam's installation directory and choose the level from the map list. To uninstall simply remove the files you've extracted. The package also has a readme file, and a folder with a secrets guide for those of you who enjoy finding all secrets without having to dig through the editor. I hope you all enjoy, and please leave some feedback!

Edit: All right, I've tested it in Serious Sam: Revolution for 40 minutes without bug, so I've added it to the Rev Workshop. Get it here!

Nice map! 2 hours flew by without notice, and there goes my guitar class.

Full of memorable areas, my favorite is the circular beheaded soldiers trap and the water pillar room arachnoids in the second round.

But my complaints have to be that there's too many 90 degrees ambush. You know, those kleers/beheaded/zorgs that are always hidden directly beside the doors of the next area. It's not fun. Also in the rocket trap room, the Werebulls tend to get stuck in the area outside.

Anyway I've made it to the last area and died (and forgot to save) so maybe I'll replay it again when I'm less pissed.

The enemies behind columns is a staple of the series. It keeps you on your toes and stops you from becoming careless. You're just mad 'cause you were being careless, right?

Yeah, short of making an invisible barrier that monsters can run over, there's not much to be done about it. I suppose cheesin' it is a legitimate strategy.

Maybe you should enable auto saving. I've placed plenty of player markers, so the game should save periodically for you with it enabled.

Note to anyone who already downloaded the map and wants to play it in co-op! Please re-download the gro file, as I fixed a bug that prevented the six switch yard exit door from unlocking in co-op on normal difficulty and above. Use the same link as before.

Definitely the best coop map I have ever played. The choice of the soundtrack could not be better. The detail is here, awesome level design and the lighting is so much well managed. The gameplay reminds me a lot of Tower of Babel (but of course the level design is one hundred times better than Tower of Babel), I love it the fights are awesome, nothing is narrow, the fights are perfect to play and very pleasant, they are very smooth. Thank you for giving me pleasure to play like I was playing Croteam's map, like if I was discovering again the game. Can't fucking wait for the final version. By the way the 6 statues area is awesome !! And Mordekai as a bonus, this map is completely complete !

The rules here in my Boarding School restrict me in playing Shooter games and anything USK18, only exception being SED3.5 as agreed.

That is SO WEIRD. Even though SS3 is uncensored in Germany.
