Publisher Devolver Digital announced earlier today that it has acquired Croteam, the developer of the popular Serious Sam games and The Talos Principle. Croteam also took it to Twitter to share that the developer is happy and proud to become a part of the Devolver Digital family.

"A decade ago Devolver Digital was just getting started and looking for its first project to partner on in the emerging digital distribution world," said the blog post from Devolver Digital. "Similarly, Croteam was on the search for a partner it could trust to help them bring their beloved franchise back to prominence with the upcoming Serious Sam 3. And like that, the next big Serious Sam game brought old partners back together and forged a decade of friendship and dedication."

The blog post continues, noting the shared history between the two companies. "Since then Croteam and Devolver Digital have partnered on dozens of games—from the frantic Serious Sam series to the award-winning The Talos Principle across PC, consoles, VR and mobile platforms," the post reads. "Croteam and Devolver Digital have been dating for so long that we decided to go ahead and just get married."

Croteam was initially founded in 1992, but only gained recognition in 2001 with the release of the first Serious Sam game. The game was published by Gathering of Developers, which also consisted of members that went on to create Devolver Digital in 2009.

Croteam recently released the fourth installment in its popular Serious Sam franchise. Although the game was received warmly by fans, many questioned the quality of the product, which did not meet the current gaming standards. With Devolver Digital acquiring Croteam, we hope that the developer will be able to produce polished video games and receive the support the studio requires.

Devolver Digital also has a major hit on their hands with the recently published Fall Guys Ultimate Knockout from Mediatonic. The game became super popular among fans, amassing millions of players within the first week of its launch.
