In other news, here are the support display resolutions for those curious:
  • 1680x1050 
  • 1600x900 
  • 1440x900
  • 1366x768
  • 1360x768
  • 1280x1024
  • 1280x960
  • 1280x800
  • 1280x768
  • 1280x720
  • 1152x864
  • 1024x768
  • 1024x576
 If you need to run the game with a resolution not shown (such as 1400x1050), you can run it with this debug command.
In Steam, right-click the game and select Properties->Set Launch Options. In the command line, set "debugResX 1400 debugResY 1050"
Obviously substitute the proper debugResX or Width that you need and the proper debugResY or Height needed.
You can actually set just about any resolution your graphics card can handle. But bear in the mind the levels were built only up to 1920x180 as the absolute max. If you go into 2560x1600 things may get unpleasant if you start seeing "outside" the game world.

Otherwise, the game looks completely smoking at the higher 1600 resolutions, I hope your card and monitor can handle those! Seems like on average most PC gamers have that covered, based on the Steam computer spec survey. But do people boastfully lie on those? I doubt it. Or at least I hope not.

Serious Sam Double D coming August 30th!

Serious Sam Double D is releasing August 30th on Steam, Get Games, Impulse and other services for $7.99!

We've been working for a while now to get the game ready for Steam and are insanely pumped to have it approved. From what we can tell Steam controls most of the digital distribution game market, so having it available there is very exciting for us.
We've polished a lot of aspects of the game along the way to get it approved including seamless quicksaving, better controller remapping, and better cinematics transitions. I've also jacked up the supported max resolution of the game to 1680x1050.

Chimputees everywhere!

The page on Steam is not up yet, but should be later this week.
Here's the Serious Sam Double D Get Games page
And the Impulse page should be up soon as well. Should be up on IndieCity and Desura too.
