Devolver Digital is apparently involved in the Serious Sam: The First Encounter HD coming to Xbox Live, and it has been discovered by BigDownload that the company is owned by none other than Mike Wilson and Harry Miller.
You know, the guys from Gamecock and GodGames?
When contacted by the site, Wilson said he and Miller “along with a few other old friends” are involved in the venture.
“We’re basically acting as the production company for the XBLA game, since we are not an official MSFT publisher yet, and will be publishing the PC version of the games,” he said.
“Croteam owns the IP still since they had a G.O.D. deal, and are therefore able to work with us again on the new version(s).”

With infamous formerly-indie publisher Gamecock now in the clutches of SouthPeak Interactive, it seems the Ken Levine-heckling group’s days of pranking and prodding are numbered.
SouthPeak CEO Melanie Mroz did little to allay this sentiment with a cryptic response to MTV Multiplayer’s query on the topic.
“[The Gamecock label’s future role] is still a work in progress. Lots of issues to resolve in terms of branding and such. Those discussions are on-going as we speak,” she said.
However, though Gamecock may be on the verge of its final cluck, its spirit will live on at SouthPeak.
“We have stated goals of finding independent developers with unique IPs and with Gamecock gracing the pages of newssites everywhere, it was pretty clear who shared our beliefs. And there isn’t anything to correct. Rather, we look to expand upon their efforts,” explained Mroz.
“As I have said all day, the independent game developer is the heart and soul of this industry and the fact one publisher joins another doesn’t change that… We do need innovation. Creative freedom. And respect for developers. Who can argue with that?”
Gamecock minus shenanigans equals Melanie Mroz. We imagine Gamecock might’ve actually done something other than piss people off if SouthPeak had commandeered the vessel sooner.

Gamecock CEO Mike Wilson is preparing to announce the as yet unnamed Croteam game signed to the publisher, the boss has revealed in this interview.
“I still can’t tell you [what's going on],” he said. “I’m hoping to very soon.”
Croteam is the Croatian developer responsible for the Serious Sam games. The new title will use the Serious 3 engine, and has been described by the company as a “military tactical-action shooter” for PC and consoles. It’s coming out in 2009.
