Serious Sam 4 will use some very advanced game development tech.
Serious Sam developer Croteam has been very quiet about Serious Sam 4 since its announcement back in 2013. Now that the studio is done working on The Talos Principle, all hands are on deck to bring out another entry in the irreverent franchise.
Speaking with Reboot magazine in an interview, lead designer Davor Hunski and chief marketing officer Damjan Mravunac said the Serious Engine has seen considerable upgrades, even compared to the version used in The Talos Principle.
Technology such as motion capture and photogrammetry are being incorporated into the engine and will be used with Serious Sam 4. Interestingly, one developer said the small team approach Croteam employed with The Talso Principle seemed to render better outcomes, and an overall focus for the team.
Serious Sam 4 will also have a form of copy-protection similar to the one used with Serious Sam 3 and The Talos Principle, in that a certain part of the game becomes impossible to overcome if the copy is pirated.
