Devolver Digital has announced that Mommy’s Best Games’ sci-fi third-person shooter Serious Sam: Double D will be available on August 30 in North America for the Microsoft Windows platform via Steam, Get Games, and other PC downloadable game storefronts. The previously announced Xbox 360 edition of the game will follow at a later date.
Double D is a side-scrolling run-and-gun shooter based on the Croteam icon. Beyond the change in genre, Mommy’s Best Games is also introducing a new "Gunstacker" mechanic, which players can use to simultaneously wield a cross-section of the game’s 32 firearms. That small arsenal of options will help Sam shoot his way through Double D’s 18 levels, taking on vintage Serious Sam villains like the headless, bomb-handed kamikaze soldiers and some new creatures like the Vuvuzelator, a sentient stack of pancakes with a plethora of protruding vuvuzelas. The game also includes four major boss fights and three distinct time periods.
