See you at Reboot Develop in Dubrovnik?

Not Davor Hunski.

Megalomaniac event managers of Reboot Develop have just updated the seemingly ever-growing list of this year’s speakers. The rest of the line up will be revealed as the conference nears, bringing the total number of speakers to “more than 110” industry veterans (in 7 tracks).

Currently there are “only” 34 speakers listed, but it’s hard not to be impressed just by glancing at the list. It’s also a great honor to see two of our very own devs in company of these games industry celebrities.

Davor Hunski, Croteam’s Chief Creative Officer and Grandfather of Croatian gaming industry will be joined by Admir Elezović, studio’s co-founder and Art Director for a talk on their current project. Which may or may not be Serious Sam 4. They aren’t saying (yet).

Regardless, Reboot Develop is shaping up as the most unique, premier and high-end games industry event in Europe and there are plenty of reasons to attend the conference taking place in historical seaside city of Dubrovnik, aka “real world King’s Landing”. The conference will be taking place from 19th to 21st of April 2018.

So this is Christmas…

You get a discount! You get a discount! You get a discount! Every one gets a discount!!!

So this is Christmas… and what have you done? Another year almost over but we’re not free of Mental scum.

That being said, it’s about time for all of you to jump back in and help Sam defeat those ugly bastards. What’s that? You’ve missed some of Sam’s adventures? No matter – they are all heavily discounted during the Steam Christmas Sale 2017.

If blowing stuff up is not your cup of tea, you can always spice your Christmas up with something philosophical. Oh, we don’t know… something like The Talos Principle that got the biggest price cut to date for both regular and VR versions.

Happy holidays!

We decide to implement iOS support to Serious Engine, you won’t believe what happens next!

Extra boost went in optimising rendering quality on higher-end devices (refraction effects, real reflection in waters/shiny floors, enabled FXAA antialiasing, enabled tree swaying, etc.)

Actually, you probably know already because It’s done and it works great. You can all check it out by downloading The Talos Principle from the iOS App Store. So much for the shock value, but the story on how Serious Engine was able to support Metal API and push the boundaries of iOS devices does make for a compelling read. Karlo Jež, one of Croteam’s senior programmers, tells the story.

“I was just about finished with my work on single pass and multi-GPU rendering optimizations for VR titles and getting ready to start working on the next project. Alen (Croteam’s CTO) walked into my office and asked me if I knew anything about Metal API. I said ‘Yes. I know it’s out there’.” 

“Just one short month later, the first builds were successfully tested on multiple iOS devices using Metal API.”
