Proto:Serious Sam: The First Encounter
This page details one or more prototype versions of Serious Sam: The First Encounter.
Serious Sam: The First Encounter has a Publisher Evaluation Build and two technology tests that were released before the official game came out. The two technology tests are named Test 1 and Test 2 and were released to the public for testing, while the Publisher Evaluation Build is a build of the game given out to 30 different publishers in the year 2000. This makes the Publisher Evaluation Build the oldest build of the game available online.
| Publisher Evaluation Build|
A build sent to different publishers. This version has MANY differences from the final version. It's a large undertaking to actually document all the differences.
| Test 1|
A test released at the end of May that has many differences compared to the final version.
| Test 2|
Second test released a mere three months before the final game came out. Mostly the same as the final version.
