Reboot InfoGamer 2015 recap

According to unofficial sources, there were as many as 50.000 visitors at this year’s Reboot InfoGamer. Croteam was one of the 100 exhibitors at one of the biggest games shows in Europe, but for us it wasn’t about the record numbers or spectacular booths (although we did try to build a very pretty one). For us, it was about hanging out with fans.
It involved a lot of creativity, too. We had to come up with different answers to everybody’s favorite question: ‘When will you release Serious Sam 4?’ It’s just not polite to bark ‘When it’s done!’ for the thousandth time.
So we came up with this great trick and asked back – ‘Why don’t you tell us?’ or ‘Ask not what Sam can do for you, but whether you can do C++ for Sam’. We ended up hiring the ones whose answers we liked the most.

The officials at the Reboot InfoGamer released this recap video, insisting on this awful dubstep track for some reason. For maximum viewing pleasure we recommend muting the sound and watching the video with a chiptune-punk-folk track of your own choice.
