You Are Here:REBOOT DEVELOP FOLLOW UP

LONG TRIP

Yeah, driving from Zagreb to Dubrovnik isn’t all that fun. The first part of the trip, while you’re on the highway is basically fine. But you have to pass through Bosnia and Herzegovina to get to “the other part of Croatia”. And this is were the trip gets interesting, because the last 100km lasts for almost 2 hours because there isn’t a highway anymore. But it’s necessary if you want to reach “the other side”. And on that part lies the jewel that is Dubrovnik. A city that was chosen to embody King’s Landing from the Game of Thrones series and a planet in the Star Wars universe. It is also a place where Naughty Dog and Sony chose as a press event when Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune was about to release in 2007.

And now, for a second time, Reboot Develop was organized in Dubrovnik and there is still a conference to be made to match that setting. This year the conference was being held in the luxurious Sheraton Dubrovnik Riviera Hotel and the place was packed! About 60 indies attended the event and one of those indies were…ahem…yours truly – Binx!

 

IF THERE WAS AN AWARD FOR MOST NOMINATIONS…

…we would win that one! The categories for the indie awards were: Visual Excellence, Outstanding Gameplay, Special Selection and Game of the Year. Our game, Serious Sam: I Hate Running Backwards was nominated in 3 categories. Special Selection was the only one that we didn’t get nominated in.

There were around “ahundredandfiftyish” games that applied for the Indie Awards so being nominated in 3 out of 4 categories for this event was super cool!

THERE WAS THIS ONE THING THAT WE WON

Since the guys from Little Green Men Games were missing a couple of players for the annual Reboot Football Tournament, our two fellas from Binx went to play for them. Needless to say that they all stormed through the tournament without a single defeat and are now proud football champions of Reboot Develop Football Tournament powered by Nordeus!

Look at these proud and happy faces!

CHANGES 

Oh of course we have those. We listened very carefully what the people that played the game had to say and we decided to kick it up a notch!  We improved on the visual side of the game yet again and are adding new elements to the gameplay. Check out these sweet before&after screenshots below!
