Austin, TX – In a move designed to stabilize the global economy, Dutch indie developer Vlambeer has launched their retro-styled, action-RPG Serious Sam: The Random Encounter on PC via Steam and Get Games. Serious Sam fans around the world are set to lead the iconic video game hero and his oddball cast of mercenaries as they battle the pixilated hordes of Mental’s invading force through nine old-school world maps and an incredibly tough Challenge Mode.

“Admittedly, we don't have a clue about JRPGs. It seems like we ended up with a game about running backwards and shooting hundreds of enemies in the face with heavy weaponry,” said Vlambeer co-founder Rami Ismail. “So that’s pretty awesome.”

Part of the trailblazing Serious Sam Indie Series which includes Serious Sam: Double D and Serious Sam: Kamikaze Attack, Serious Sam: The Random Encounter is available now for $4.99 on Steam and Get Games. Featuring over-the-top battles, an explosive arsenal of weapons, and crazy items like Kamikaze Bait and the Serious Bomb, Serious Sam: The Random Encounter is set to blow the doors off the world of Dutch-made JRPGs set in Egypt.

“Serious Sam: The Random Encounter is the greatest Serious Sam RPG to ever come out of the Netherlands,” claimed Fork Parker, Devolver Digital CFO. “Maybe even the world. Quote me.”
