We don’t always open our door to journos, but when we do…

… it’s turns out to be fun!

The good folks over from ASUS Republic of Gamers came to visit us a couple of weeks back. Kimberly and Jason had a chance to try out all our current VR projects and were completely blown away by the immersive and intense experiences they offer. Soon after that they started chatting to a few of our own, including our Alen Ladavac, Ante Vrdelja, Damjan Mravunac, Dean Sekulić and Nikola Mosettig, which let them find out first hand why we love VR and why we are willing to dwell in this alternate world.

If you want to know yourself, have a look at their freshly released article “Inside Croteam, the game studio going all-in on Virtual Reality“. Enjoy!

SSVR: The Last Hope – Arcadia Update Coming in the First Week of June 2017!

As you all probably know, the Croteam VR team has been hard at work on the big Arcadia update for Serious Sam VR: The Last Hope. This new update is all but done, and while there is some polishing left to do, we’re so confident that we can officially announce the release window which will be the first week of June – so pretty soon.

Arcadia is equally green and lush as it is gray and desolate. It hides a danger unlike any other that you’ve seen before, so Sam has got to use every single one of his big guns to battle against tons of enemies – five of them new! Of course, Arcadia will be released with full co-op support, because blasting alien scum to bits is always more rewarding with friends.

What’s that? Will Arcadia be the final update to TLH, you ask? Why no, no it won’t. We’ve got some cool new surprises in store for you, but you’ll have to wait for more info on that. 🙂

In the meantime, how about a guessing game? Which new weapon will help Mr. Stone in his Arcadia adventures? Which one would you like to see in all it’s VR glory? Let us know on Twitter.

Reboot Develop 2017 Opening Keynote – Alen Ladavac: Game Developer’s Meaning of Life

This year’s Reboot Develop took things to a whole other level, with great speakers and panels. We were happy to attend in high numbers and see first hand how Develop is slowly but surely becoming the best conference for game developers in Europe.

We are both proud and happy that one of our own, Alen Ladavac, was able to set the tone of the conference with his opening keynote Game Developer’s Meaning of Life. If you missed this keynote, you’re at a loss. But don’t worry, there’s a second best option – watching it on YouTube – so enjoy!

Looking forward to an even bigger and better Reboot Develop 2018. See you there!

SSVR: The Last Hope – Valtos Update Available on Early Access

SSVR: The Last Hope – Valtos Update Available on Early AccessSerious Sam VR: The Last Hope just got bigger with an all new Valtos Update landing on Early Access. The update features a new planet – Valtos – featuring four different locations/maps including The Swamp, Ancient Breeze, The Old Forest and Green Dream.

Also featured in the Valtos Update are six different enemies including Kalopsy, Siren, Swamp Monster, Air Trooper, Technopolyp and Air Sniper Trooper. After dealing with them Sam will have to fight toe to toe with the Swamp Hive boss, as scary as it is slimy.

To help him in his mission, General Stone’s arsenal got even deadlier with new additions including a bow with piercing/explosive arrows and the deadly Devastator.

Valtos Update also includes many different tweaks, fixes and optimizations such as vastly improved precision for the default sword projectile casting mode and improved shield energy display.

Near the poolside area you can catch Reboot panelists Ante Vrdelja and Davor Tomicic discussing serious and less serious topics regarding game marketing and the art of stripping down. This should be fun.

Serious Sam’s Bogus Detour Coming This Summer From Creators of “Hammerwatch”

Looks like we’ve got ourselves the next great entry in the Serious Sam Indie Series – Serious Sam’s Bogus Detour! It’s a retro-styled action-adventure in the Serious Sam saga made by Hammerwatch developer Crackshell.

Battle through beautiful Mediterranean locales, dangerous biological weapons labs and even high-tech moon bases as a one-man wrecking crew or in four-player online cooperative for maximum chaos! Dominate the chaotic Survival and Versus modes or make your own mods, modes, and even total conversions with the included game editor. Serious Sam’s Bogus Detour is the biggest little Serious Sam game ever made!

“Our boys in R&D have been looking into ways to combine this hot wave of so-called indie games with the tried and true Serious Sam profit formula and it looks like they’ve hit a homerun with Serious Sam’s Bogus Detour,” said Devolver Digital CFO Fork Parker.

Serious Sam’s Bogus Detour marks a return to indie roots and a continuation of the Serious Sam Indie Series that includes Vlambeer’s Serious Sam: The Random Encounter and Mommy’s Best Games’ Serious Sam Double D.

Serious Sam: The First Encounter – 16th anniversary today

Today we are celebrating the beginning of Serious Sam glory, the release of first series in Sam’s universe, The First Encounter. We were young twenty-something guys that shared one mutual dream – to develop video games. Serious Sam: The First Encounter was our breakthrough title and, oh boy, it caused a commotion in the gaming community. Demo for the game became the most downloaded demo of the summer 2000. Croteam partnered up with the Gathering of Developers (Devolver Digital today) and they became our publishers for this and all future Sam’s titles.

 

 

Fast-forward 16 years later and we are in 2017., year of virtual reality. We love VR and we love experimenting with it and one of our newest experiments is Serious Sam VR: The First Encounter. It’s a full locomotion game for the brave ones with the possibility of teleportation for the entry-level VR players. Game is in Early Access on Steam and it’s set for the full release soon.
