Croteam and Devolver Digital have announced that from May 12th – 16th all things Serious Sam HD will be marked down 75 percent on Steam, a move bound to create tension between top financial executives at publisher Devolver Digital and the rest of the company.
“I can’t believe you idiots are selling some top-tier premium content like Serious Sam HD for a few bucks,” said Fork Parker, Devolver Digital CFO. “I’ve been known to pay more than that for a tug job out behind the racetrack.”
During the controversial sale Serious Sam HD: Gold Edition will be priced at a racetrack friendly price of $9.99. The complete Gold Edition includes Serious Sam HD: The First Encounter and The Second Encounter, along with classic versions of both, to satiate your throwback FPS needs until the arrival of Serious Sam 3: BFE later this summer. For gamers not into combo packs Serious Sam HD: The First Encounter and Serious Sam HD: The Second Encounter will be marked down to $3.75 and $4.99 respectively.
When asked to comment, Croteam Lead Designer Davor Hunski responded. “Please leave me alone, we’re working on Serious Sam 3: BFE.”
