I Hate Running Backwards is launching May 22!

A couple of weeks back we have officially announced the Croteam Incubator initiative and now it’s finally time to announce that I Hate Running Backwards is the first incubator game to be released this month, on Tuesday, May 22.

This crazy shoot-em-down game features destructible, randomly generated environments, a fancy level-up system and random drops of health, power-ups, and weapons that compliment each of the star characters unique main weapons. Want to use a deadly farting donkey? No problem! Ass Blaster has you covered! Want to move the ground and raise walls? Seismic Disruptor is your friend. Best of all? You get to dual wield these babies! That’s right, you can fire special and main weapons at the same damn time! Add to that the exciting couch co-op multiplayer mode, where you get to curse at your friend for not saving your ass or grabbing that ammo crate that you needed so badly, and you’ve got yourself a serious party.

The game will get a simultaneous release on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with the Nintendo Switch version coming later this summer.

Serious Sam 4: Planet Badass official reveal coming @ E3 2018

Hey everyone!
The time is finally right for us to do an official announcement of Serious Sam 4: Planet Badass. The full reveal will happen at the Devolver Digital E3 conference, this June in LA, but in the meantime be sure to wishlist the game on Steam to get all the latest info and updates first.

Oh… and here’s a nice little teaser so be sure to check it out and tell us what you think via our social network channels. 🙂

Croteam Incubator is now officially a thing!

The Croteam Incubator is an internal division of Croteam formed in 2015, with an initiative to provide Croatian developers with opportunities that otherwise wouldn’t be available while focusing on Croteam’s studio values – creating great games and enjoying what makes game development fun.

“This year, Croteam is celebrating its 25-year anniversary. Starting up in this business wasn’t an easy ride. We went through it all, but we were also very lucky,” remembers Roman Ribaric, Croteam’s CEO and President of Croteam Incubator. “Croteam started in the proverbial garage, went through tough times and experienced a lot of difficulties before we got to where we are today. Now we’re in a position to help out and that’s exactly what Croteam Incubator is about.”

A lot of things weren’t available to new game dev studios in the past, like engine technology, grants, loans and private funding, which all are now more accessible to everyone willing to start in game development. At the same time, a lot of startup development studios are still struggling to get their projects off the ground.

SCUM and I Hate Running Backwards are Ready to Blow Your Mind at PAX East!

A wise man once said that nothing feels as good as playing a great game and while this might be completely made up we’re pretty sure not many things come close. That’s exactly the reason we decided to jump over The Pond once more and visit the great city of Boston for PAX East where we will be joined by two amazing teams – Gamepires and Binx Interactive – who are going to showcase their amazing projects.

You have undoubtedly heard about Gamepires. For the past two years, Gamepires have been working on developing the ultimate open-world survival game that will evolve the genre with its unprecedented levels of character customization and progress. That game is, of course, SCUM. The game has been talked about a lot, but it has never been showcased publicly, and that’s exactly why you should book your PAX East tickets right now.

SCUM will be available to play at the amazing custom made booth made in collaboration between Gamepires and Devolver Digital, so be sure to look for it on the show floor and give it a try. We know you’ll love it. Also, if you’re one of those cool content creator folk, be sure to drop a line to tinsley[at]tinsley-pr[dot]com to arrange an appointment and get a chance to chat to the developers.

Along with SCUM, PAX East will be enriched by the presence of Binx Interactive, a five-man part of the Croteam Incubator, who will be showcasing their “shoot-em-down” game I Hate Running Backwards. This gem of a game was last shown at Gamescom 2017 and Reboot InfoGamer 2017 but has evolved beyond expectation. That makes it a perfect fit for PAX East where you will be able to get hands-on and even play with some of the developers.

 

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.
