Originally on Steam Early Access as part of Croteam’s Incubator program in 2019, Serious Sam Tormental lets you blast your way through the tormented mind of the demigod of destruction Mental, as he images worlds and monsters that stand on your towards his inner ego. Got it?

The full release of the game introduces a new area called The Fortress that features new enemies and Elite variants and Torments – special runs with preset starting weapons, powers, and conditions, with leaderboards for each. The update also includes dozens of weapons, perks, powers, quests, music, and even a brand new character, Ugh Zan Jr.

About Serious Sam Tormental

Deep in an abandoned temple lies a cursed artifact, an ancient device capable of the unthinkable. Could this be the key to entering the mind of the god of destruction: Mental? This may be ‘Serious’ Sam Stone’s only chance to delve deep into the twisted world of Mental’s wicked imagination, where his quest will lead him into battle against reckless hordes of monsters. You know, the usual.

Serious Sam Tormental - Gameplay


  • Procedurally generated dungeons, characters with unique abilities, randomized pools of powerful upgrades, tons of fun Serious Weapons.
  • Secret and links to Mental’s identity, giving you more goals than just “defeat the final boss”. You will need to beat many challenges in order to stop Mental once and for all.
  • Discover hidden ideas inside of Mental’s mind – what enemies, weapons, and items is he imagining to use in the real world? Acquire those ideas and use them yourself.
  • Gather & combine gun parts to construct unique, powerful weapons.
  • Beat various challenges to unlock new worlds, characters, weapons, and upgrades.
  • Play together in local co-op mode. Face stronger bosses, compete for (or share) XP, and revive each other with ankh pickups.

Created by fans of Geometry Wars, Nuclear Throne, Binding of Isaac, Serious Sam, and Enter the Gungeon, Serious Sam Tormental is available right now on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC (via Steam).
