Post Highlights from Croteam's AmA on Reddit.

Two days ago, Croteam held a an AMA at Reddit, where you could ask them questions about nearly anything. Here are a few interesting tidbits from the AMA.

On the Serious Sam HD games being on Linux and Mac:


Quote:
Let's just say that we want to make SSHD:TFE and TSE available in a native build for Linux and OSX, in an innovative approach that you haven't seen before, and that we hope is fair, and let's please stop guessing how that is a scheme to cross Linux gamers. It doesn't make sense to spend resources on it in a way to provoke backlash. Otherwise we could just say: Screw the old games on Linux, it's too costly. No work, least backlash, right?

One user from the Russian community had several questions:


Quote:
Hello, Alen and Davor. Our Russian community from Serious Site wants to ask you this followed questions:

1) Do you have any plans about making port Serious Sam: Xbox to Xbox 360 Arcade? It's best version of the best game, but exclusive only for the first Xbox.

2) Will you post someday more content (screenshots, videos, maps, probably, alpha) about earlier-version of Serious Sam?

3) In which places will take action in SS 4, maybe Paris, Zagreb... or Moscow . And it's gonna be prequel to SS 3?

4) Are you planning to release SDK for Sam HD or BFE?

5) Will be some new Serious Sam games to Android or another platforms?

6) We will see face of Mental in SS 4?

7) Serious Sam story can be finished?

8) When you will post something new about Serious Sam 2 HD: BFM?

9) Undercode will take part in making soundtrack for SS 4?

10) Is it possible to join the beta-testers team of your projects?

And my personally question, did you get new members in Cro Team?

Thank you!
Alen Ladavac's response:




Quote:
1)Not at the moment. SS:XB was done in SE1.5 engine and it is not trivial to port it over to SE3+.

2)We always plan to do it, but never get around to.

3)Sorry, can't yet tell that, as said in the OP.

4)Well, we've wanted to enable that all the way since SS2. For a while we were like getting further from that goal, but we are now back on track. I hope that somewhere in time for SS4 we can probably release something.

5)We hope so. There are now some of the indie branch-offs, like the Kamikaze attack by Vlambeer. It is hard to make full FPS games on Android due to hardware limitations, but we hope to see that change as stronger hardware is released each day. When the hardware is ready, we will surely strive to make a Sam for it.

6) Can't tell.

7) Well, the story ends when Sam gets to Mental. (*) But who knows in which episode that will happen.

8) This project is more in planning and prototyping phases and it happens more sporadically in-between work on main lines like PS3 and SS4 atm. But it is always on the back-burner.

9) I can't speak in their name, but we will probably discuss the possibility with them.

10 )Our standard procedure is to take in people that current testers can vouch for.

Did you know that Croteam tried to remake the Kamikaze's infamous screaming sound, but couldn't get it just like the original sound?


Quote:
It is all about screeming, actrually that scream audio file is really hard to reproduce, we tried refreshing with the new one in Sam 3, but almost none of the new sounds worked as we wanted. So, we leaved the old one. After all, we love it! AAAAAAAAAAAAA!

Speaking of the Kamikaze, the AmA revealed that Roman Ribaric, the CEO of Croteam, is the voice of the Kamikaze.


Quote:
Beleave or not, it is Roman, our CEO Now you know how he sounds when we are late with project!

Playstation 4 fans will be happy to hear that Serious Sam will be appearing on it!


Quote:
Yes, see around the thread. PS4 is in the works for now.

To end this roundup, here's a small hint about what may be in Serious Sam 4:

From what I've seen, seems like there will be some more interesting cowboy stuff in SS4. It maybe won't be hats, but also, maybe it will. You never know...

I like hats. But I don't like TF2 hats. Sam with hats sounds nice.

Yeah, Solais mentioned a few times that Croteam wants to do Serious Sam 2 "the way they wanted to back in 2005", so without executive meddling. But that's all theory at the moment, we still have Serious Sam 4 to wait for so who knows what they will do.
