Get ready to remove your head, grab some bombs, and step into the boots of Serious Sam’s most iconic foe, the Headless Kamikaze. Serious Sam: Kamikaze Attack! launched on Steam today!

It’s been 10 years since the original game came out on mobile platforms so what better way to celebrate a 10 year anniversary than with a fresh launch on Steam?

Things I did for the Steam version:

  • Up-resed the textures so the graphics will look crisper
  • Added Steam achievements
  • Added trading cards / badges / profile backgrounds / emoticons
  • Added semi-partial controller support (some of the controller buttons are set up to jump & dash)
  • Added a few other keys and mouse buttons to make you jump & dash
  • Remade all the particle FX because Unity deprecated the old particle system. I tried to make them as close to the originals as possible with some slight tweaks to make them look cooler
  • Fixed a bunch of bugs and cleaned up some menus and UI stuff

It’s been super fun reviving an old game, especially one with a dedicated fan base and support from a publisher. Serious Sam: Kamikaze Attack! launched on Steam with a 34% discount, which puts it at just under $2 in the US. For more info and screens check out the presskit().

I’ll do an update with a few tweaks and bug fixes so that people with ultra-wide monitors can read the text on the end-level screen 🙂
