Enter the mind of Serious Sam himself in this exceptional mappack inspired by
Inception and Psychonauts!

Mental has hacked into Netricsa using technology to manipulate a person's dreams, trapping Sam inside his own mind and militarizing his mind against himself. To wake up, Sam must perform an Exception, and fix Netricsa by convincing her to get back to her senses.

This near final beta version of the mappack includes four playable levels, Dream Collapses, Madness Begins, The City of the End and The Peak of Insanity, each being set in surrealistic landscapes, either made of checkerboard cubes and various odd geometrical shapes, or a gigantic bathroom with a warzone of soldiers, giant machine guns mounted on carrots, destroyed helicopters and tanks, a burning gigantic cityscape, or a mental apocalypse! All levels are fully playable to completion with the exception of Peak of Insanity, which is still missing a final boss fight and some additions.

Recommended to be played on Normal difficulty unless you're an experienced Sam player.


All mapping & design by me, Finzy.
Special thanks to: Pan for custom character models and model rips, Mischievous for NPCs, scripting help, sea model / effects, Devostator for Amnesia models, Noam for the Netricsa witch bride model

- Fixed players not being teleported after the intro cutscene in Dream Collapses
- Fixed some jump skips in Madness Begins
- Added new Sam voicelines for City of the End.
- Hotfix no longer needed.


- Added 2 new levels, The City of the End and The Peak of Insanity
- Added a new introduction scene to Dream Collapses
- Added a new unlockable credits level
- Added new player models for characters that are featured throughout the levels
- Added transitions between certain levels.
- Fixed a bug in Madness Begins where enemies would remain alive at the bottom of the room (added an abyss killer).


- A final battle
- Some tweaks and bugfixes to the latter 2 levels - they are effectively in beta
- Subtitles for Dream Collapses and Madness Begins (will be added for the final release).
- Updated Sephiroth model (still uses the old one but probably replaced by SFL's "Sexyroth").
- Additional multiplayer enemies (if playing in co-op, using higher enemy strenght settings is recommended)

ehm on the second map the enemies can shoot through walls? wtf? Where the 3 fattys spawn who can shoot rockets, there are cardboard boxes and stuff as cover, they can just shoot through. Because of that I wont continue playing.

Look around the corners of the giant cube you're on, one of them has a walkway to the exit (should have small armor pickups near it, it's to the left from the sleeping sirian figure).

Yeah that's what I meant, you need the SS2 sounds pack seperately, I did not include it as a workshop download, as this was uploaded way back when the upload limits were smaller. If you have everything linked there's no reason it wouldn't load as far as I know.
