What exactly is Croteam's involvement in this? The engine used is UE4..

And also, do we really need more survival games like this?

The description is pretty vague, I can't wait until we get some solid info. Also, multiplayer is kind of a turn-off for me, it has to be pretty special to convince me to play.

Croteam are producers. They are giving a helping hand to Gamepires, as that team was made by ex-CT members, like Tomislav Pongrac.

But none of us are actually working on it, so it doesn't get in the way of the development of SS4 or SamVR.

Huh... how about that Well I love me some open world games, so I will be keeping my eye out.

A Producer in the entertainment industry usually means financial assistance and some form of guidance. Dunno if that is the case in this relationship though.

Well they certainly got the publicity going on, but you also get that from Devolver alone

Btw, I don't dislike open world survival games, they're cool, but they're usually done really poorly.. I'd love to see a proper one..

Honestly, I feel like Croteam got involved in this project just for some shekels and to provide a good promotion for these guys from Gamepires due to their bigger name. I'm both interested and confused: Devolver & Croteam is always a go-go mix, but open-world survival early-access game... not my cup of tea, to say very, very careful and vague to not hurt someone...

Yeah, it feels out of place in the world of Croteam and Devolver, but let's see, maybe it brings something interesting, there's not much known yet..

I never considered that Croteam would get involved with another developer's project, but I guess I don't know much about them. I love Croteam though so if they're sticking their name on this, then I have to check it out, even if it isn't really my style. Their repertoire is kind of small but still, everything they have created or touched has been gold in my experience.

This was already a starting trend back in 2003 when Croteam allowed Climax Software to use the Serious Sam license (and Serious Engine in Next Encounter's case) for Next Encounter and Advance. The next step was allowing a few developers to make Serious Sam games with different genres, like Double D and Random Encounter. Croteam has also been very active in building up the indie scene, at least in Croatia, by giving lectures at universities and such. From what I understand they also allow ex-employees to start their own companies and actively help them out with their endeavors. So the logical step would be to take on a mentor role for a small upstart like is happening now.

Anyway, even if you don't like Croteam's games you can't help but admire their vision and actions towards the industry.

The background in that picture looks like old little towns along our coast and islands, and the forest fire especially adds to that

And yeah, media already calls it a new "Croteam" game:

Looks interesting. For some reason this reminds me of Dead Island / Dying Light along with a few other games bundled together. I wonder what it's gonna be about Will check it out later when I have time; too much to do now.

"Sandbox gameplay" makes me think this is kind of a Just Cause game with Battle Royale gamemode..

The house and trees look so Croteam-like, heh.

Also, I hope Croteam realise that even though they've been declared 'producers', their name will still stick more than Gamepires due to the bigger popularity, so - if - there'll be some critics and flaws with this game, they'll be first to blame respectively At least that's what I got after reading tons of news titles today where almost everyone called it "Croteam's game" or "A game from Serious Sam devs".

Looking forward to the game Scum but I do like Sandbox type games but I usually play it for a while then stop playing it (typically until i beat the game or i just leave the game). But like dad, he plays 24 hours on that stuff (minus sleep), like Fallout 4, Stalker, Metro 2033, Borderlands 1/2 and those type of games. He likes to play around on them, mod them, and just have fun. He's lazy and doesn't work but he loves that stuff. I'm looking forward on what is coming out on Scum next.!

Like the name of the Prison Encounter if it were for Serious Sam

Acually would be be in an "Egyptian" prison?
