Serious Sam HD: The First Encounter Demo

Steam News announces the release of the promised playable demo for Serious Sam HD: The First Encounter, Devolver Digital's remake of Croteam's old school shooter. Word is: "Grab the demo and go back in time *IN HD* as the legendary Sam 'Serious,' where you'll head to ancient Egypt to battle the overwhelming forces of Notorious Mental and the Sirian army."

It's delusional if you already have the original game as it's the same maps, weapons, brain-dead enemies, and tired gameplay.
By that logic, everyone continuing to charge money for any game you've already purchased is "delusional".

It's also delusional if you can get the gold release of the original game plus the sequel (second encounter) for the same price or less (~$10 in the jewel case)
That's a slightly better argument, but still kinda silly -- honestly, you can't expect a company to go to the effort of remaking a game of this size, and then to release it for whatever discounted price the original now goes for.

If you don't have the original, $15 simply isn't that much money to get a version with fancier graphics. If you do have the original and you don't think the remake is a significant improvement, then you're just not in the target audience.
