Serious Sam Double D XXL has 'high chance' of PC version

Serious Sam Double D XXL  has 'high chance' of PC version

Serious Sam Double D was the titular character's first venture into 2D space and he arrived with guns blazing. Unfortunately, the accompanying Xbox Live Arcade version never saw the light of day. That's not to say developer Mommy's Best Games wasn't serious about bringing Sam Stone to XBLA. A year and a half later, Serious Sam's 2D adventure is finally set to release as Serious Sam Double D XXL. Mommy's Best Games founder Nathan Fouts explained the reasons for the delays.

Indie Jeff's Weekly Picks: August 29 - Sept. 2

This past week, the winners of Microsoft's Dream.Build.Play competition were announced, with the $40,000 grand prize going to a puzzle-platformer called Blocks That Matter by Guillaume Martin. Inspired by Tetris and Minecraft, Blocks That Matter is about a robot called Tetrobot, created by "fictional" inventors "Alexey and Markus"--get it? After the developers are kidnapped, it's up to the intrepid robot to save its masters. Navigating the game's puzzling levels requires the use of Tetrobot's special ability to absorb blocks made of different materials and use them to produce tetragrams.

Indie Jeff's Weekly Picks: July 25-29

Given the dearth of high-profile releases this time of year, it can be particularly challenging to find something new to tide you over until the next Deus Ex, or Madden (or whatever AAA title will next float your boat) shows up. This week, I came across a new (free) DigiPen student project called "It Belongs in an Ancient Ruin!" My review sums up how I felt about the experience, and Indiana Jones fans will find it hard not to enjoy the adventures of Pennsylvania Smith, a fedora-wearing archaeologist who steals artifacts from museums and returns them to ancient ruins. Honestly, I'm so in love with the concept that I really hope developer Back Table Productions banks it into a larger project.
