Serious Sam: The Second Encounter is a first-person shooter game developed by Croteam and published by Gathering of Developers in 2002. In The First Encounter, Sam ended up aboard the SSS Centerprice traveling to Sirius, the Sirian homeworld. This is the point where The Second Encounter starts. However, the starship accidentally collides with something and crashes on Earth. The ship is damaged beyond repair, so Sam is trapped in Central America in the Mayan age. It seems that the Sirians left a backup ship somewhere in case if anything ever happens to the SSS Centerprice.
