Awesome work



Now here is something that came out of nowhere. Software engineer ‘sultim-t’ has released a Ray Tracing version of the first Serious Sam game, Serious Sam: The First Encounter.

As its description reads:
“Serious Sam TFE: Ray Traced is a port of the classic Serious Sam: The First Encounter (2001), that includes a reworked graphics engine to enable ray tracing support.
With the hardware-accelerated ray tracing, it is possible to calculate global illumination, reflections, refractions, soft shadows and other visual effects completely in real-time.”


In order to showcase these new Ray Tracing effects, sultim-t released the following trailer.
This trailer shows off most of the game’s Ray Tracing effects. Furthermore, it packs some before/after comparison scenes.

It truly looks amazing, so make sure to at least watch it.

Have fun!

Slightly unrelated but I’m still waiting for that one guy who remade the first episode of duke nuke fully using the serious Sam engine / mod tools to make the remaining episodes. (Full VR support)
