Woah! We’re 25 Years Old

For all of us at Croteam, 2018 has been a special year so far. We have done many things we are proud of, but none of them as big as the announcement of Serious Sam 4: Planet Badass, a new game in the series that made us into what we are today. But, all of those things seem small compared to the biggest milestone so far – our 25th anniversary.

Being a part of this amazing industry for such a long time means we have gone through it all, from the proverbial garage where we were dreaming of a future in which we can live off of making games, to our breakout with Serious Sam and that dream becoming a reality. We’ve built lots of memories and stories over the years, but none of them would be possible without the neverending support from our fan base that stuck with us through thick and thin.

We are eager to continue our journey for another 25 years and then some, but before we do so, we want to show our love and appreciation to you, the community, with a huge Croteam 25th Anniversary Sale on Steam where you can grab all our games with up to 90% off!

I Hate Running Backwards is available NOW!

The day has finally come! The first Croteam Incubator game to launch, I Hate Running Backwards by Binx Interactive, is AVAILABLE NOW for PC via Steam, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

That’s right, you can play this amazing shoot-em-down on three of four leading platforms. As for you Nintendo Switch fans – worry not! Binx Interactive is hard at work to launch your very own version of the game later this summer. It won’t be long now.

Pro tip: the game might be local co-op only, but if you are playing on PC be sure to grab a friend, download the Parsec gaming app and blast your way through some enemies online!

To find out more about I Hate Running Backwards be sure to check out this blog post about the history of the project.

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.
