Reboot InfoGamer video

Reboot InfoGamer 2016 is behind us and we are getting ready for the new challenges and adventures.

In the meantime check out this great video from Reboot made by Croteam staff.

Mixed Reality in Serious Sam VR: The Last Hope

Goran Adrinek, Lead gameplay programmer

Introduction

This article explains the work it took to implement mixed reality into our game using our own engine. Apart from using the approaches already taken by some other teams, we have developed some new techniques that work great to solve latency issues as well as make camera calibration really simple for the user. We haven’t found anyone describe such solutions to these common problems, so our implementation should be interesting both to people new to the subject and to the people who already did mixed reality and want to improve their approach. 

How it all started for us

Mixed reality was already found to be a great way to demonstrate VR experience outside of VR. Naturally, we also wanted to use mixed reality for promotion of Serious Sam VR: The Last Hope. We started implementing mixed reality two weeks before the EGX 2016 show so we could be featured on the Vive stand, capture some promotional footage as well as show off our game in all its glory featuring the physical minigun controller.  [Read More]

AaaaaAAAAaaaaAAAAnd we’re out now!

Serious Sam VR: The Last Hope is now live on Steam Early Access (http://store.steampowered.com/app/465240/).

The game was first shown outside of Croteam’s studio as a pre-alpha demo at Reboot Develop 2016. It was announced at E3, and demoed at Gamescom, PAX and EGX, with everybody who tried it coming away wanting more, and wanting it soon. Like, yesterday!

So first of all we’d like to say thank you to all our fans who made this possible and encouraged us to make our vision come true – to travel the galaxy, meet interesting aliens, and blow the shit out of them all in a mind-blowing, fast-paced, guns-blazin’ virtual reality environment. The journey has just started and Early Access means that we’ll listen to your feedback to make the best game possible.

Serious Sam VR: The Last Hope works with HTC Vive out of the box, while support for Oculus Rift + Touch controls is planned for hardware’s release. But there’s no reason to wait: Serious Sam VR: The Last Hope is 20% off this week!
