    Google Stadia is getting a little “Serious” with Alen Ladavac onboard

    Co-founder of Croteam, Alen Ladavac has just announced that he will be joining Google Stadia. Croteam is the developer for the famous Serious Sam franchise and has been established since 1993.

    With his departure from Croteam, he has this to say on his LinkedIn post:

    “Change is the only constant there is”, said Heraclitus ages ago. Yet, here I’ve been, making great games with my gang at Croteam since the days when we used to ship games on floppy disks. We’ve made many respected titles, from Football Glory back in 1993, through the legendary Serious Sam franchise, and the one dearest to my heart: The Talos Principle. It’s been fantastic 25 years and I couldn’t be more proud of everything we’ve achieved. The change, however, is a fundamental force in the universe at large. I have fought for way too long against it, and it turns out “the resistance is futile”. ? Thus, as (again) Heraclitus said: “Men that love wisdom must be acquainted with very many things indeed.” – so I’ve decided to head into a quite different, albeit very similar adventure. With a heavy heart, I’ve parted ways with my dear friends and colleagues at Croteam. I love you all, guys and girls, and I will never forget all the beautiful years I spent with you and fantastic things we’ve created. I’m super excited to announce that I’m starting at Google München, joining the awesome Stadia team to work on finally bringing gaming into the cloud. What was once deemed impossible, now is the reality – and I’m grateful for a chance to contribute to this landmark undertaking.

    Alen Ladavac will be joining Google München as Engineering Manager.
