They won't tell you nothing, because their actual market policy is to not talk or show anything from the game, before the game is finished or near finishing. And because f this there is no need and reason for them to post here.

And this market policy sucks, because is always cool to see stuff in development and look for stuff that later got (eventually) scrapped.

Croteam should be like Cloud Imperium Games and show the entire development process of the game.

Before I joined the forum, I used to think that this was Croteam's official forum and that all of the names in The Talos Principle hall of fame were members from here. Now I know that those were just VIPs and that Croteam doesn't bother with us peons, but hopefully they have some employees lurking and providing feedback based on our comments here.

Well, until a very few years ago they were active here, but then they moved to Steam forums. However, I assume that they read the forum at least once in a while and also they have Solais as an intermediary.

And I think that being in the Hall of Fame is one of our dreams. But well, it's not easy, it's a place that everyone has to win... Anyway it's almost an unreachable place for mortals like us.

Things have changed a lot over the years. Developers generally start off open and eventually close themselves off because of lack of time and because after a while... feedback from the community becomes useless to them.

It's not that harsh though with Croteam. But there really is a lack of time.

Furthermore, and you can see this over and over again on the UT4 forums, whenever you show some proof of concept or new feature or ability or way of doing things, you're always gonna have some people begin to cry over it, thinking it's gonna be implemented in the final build and it's the end of the world.

In game development, obviously new ideas need to be cultivated and tested out. And a lot of them don't even make it, but most people don't think like a game designer, especially when they cannot try it for themselves so they'll judge it purely from what they've heard of it which usually leads to some inane feedback

It's not like I'm asking for very specific details about project, but some progress info would be nice. Sola for instance could say that he already made a map and is going to make more maps, or not.

I don't foresee a success for a game that not many people know it's even in development.

That is how most games are made... in secret. You aren't supposed to know much about it until the final hype train before it is finished. If information comes out too soon you lose the interest of players and that cuts into your profits. Don't be selfish.

I think a lot of oldies, such as myself, miss the good 'ol days when many developers were fairly transparent of the development progress of games. I mean, they weren't showcasing every piece of development, but they would showcase enough to keep fans interested.

I remember iD doing this and even Croteam during the development of SS:SE. I distinctly remember Bungie releasing weekly blogs during the development of Halo 2 & 3. When they would discuss some of the cool features and concepts that were being created. But I guess many publishers/PR departments put the stop on many of these blogs. I kind of see it... since developers/publishers got burned too many times by unmet expectations.

I just wish Croteam would give us something, even if it was just a simple teaser image. Heck, we don't even know if it will be released in 2017 at this point. I guess I'm just impatient

I agree with all of that, NoMercy. We can all just see how 2017 goes in terms of Serious Sam. My prognostication is that Croteam will announce Serious Sam 4 next year, and release it early the year after.

I made three updated versions of old versus maps for SS4, and a Capture the Flag version from one of them. I'll likely gonna make more when the game's development reaches a certain point where I can do more.

I've always wondered - instead of remaking over and over again old maps, why you not abandon them and make completely new ones?

Thanks! That tells quite a lot.

I assume you can't go beyond PvP as enemies or other assets are not ready yet?

In general I'm mostly working on the versus and survival part of SS4. But yes, the gist is that not every asset, enemy and weapon is complete yet.

Hey, Discy, how do you think - if back in 1999 id Software had put Q2DM1 in Quake 3, will it Q3DM17 be so famous, or will fall in Q2DM1's shadow?
