Greetings! We've updated the files now. This always takes some time as we need to check the files once again. Especially since the first day after an update usually comes along with fixing broken things.

About two weeks ago, we released CrossCode version 0.9 and, once again, hold a small contest for everyone to beat the new boss enemy within a week and send us a video of it. And today we announce the winner! Also, a small note on recent hotfix releases
Boss Contest Result
The boss of the Grand Krys'kajo was somewhat special in that it was the first time you had to fight two enemies at the same time. It's also special in that you can decide which of the two bosses to defeat first. While most player went with the obvious approach of getting rid of the whale first, there are some submissions that managed to defeat the ape before the whale!
A List of all submissions:
Quang Tran Minh
As before, we've drawn a random number during our last Gamedev Stream to decide the winner.
And the lucky person is... WervynAnixil
We'll make sure to contact you about your guest role, which can be anywhere in CrossWorlds!
- All the broken tutorials should work correctly again
- The Bluerays in Grand Krys'kajo should not fall out of bounds anymore... hopefully
- No more crashes when using Shock Combat Arts on certain targets
- Physics won't do strange things anymore around stairs for players with more than 60 fps
- Disabled "GPU Blacklisting" which might improve performance for some players
- Balanced Wowturbines to make the fight more doable
- Several menu fixes and improvements
Now it's finally time to continue the story! The next release is scheduled for April-May. We'll make sure to keep you updated!
It's done! Just in time. Today we release CrossCode Version 0.9 as promised in February! This updates comes with another new dungeon, a very big circuit update, a new party member, lots of quests and many, many more features, improvements, and additions!
Grand Krys'kajo – The final temple of the Jungle
With the Grand Krys'kajo we release the final temple of Gaia's Garden. Being the follow up dungeon after the So'najiz and Zir'vitar Temple it will combine puzzle mechanics from both dungeons and finish things off with an epic boss fight! Boss fight… are you thinking contest? That's right! Read more about it further below.
Level 2 Combat Arts
The circuit made a pretty big leap with this update: all passive skill, as well as level 1 and level 2 Combat Arts have been fully implemented. That means the circuit is pretty much complete with the exception of level 3 combat arts. Since so many things changed, you'll get the option to reset your skill tree when you load your old save.
Also: we added a new Practice Arena in the Info Building of Rookie Harbor! You can practice all the Combat Arts to your heart's content without being limited by SP costs.
C'Tron – Now ready to join your Party
C'Tron is now finally ready to join party! When you reach the current end of the story, C'Tron will send you a message, allowing you to invite him to your party via the Social Menu. This will also work with old save states. Note: C'Tron is currently only there for you to enjoy the gameplay with a 3rd party member – scenes and plenty of chit-chat will be added later.
But that's not all! Party Members are now much more capable in general, as they will start using elements and combat arts during battle – and are less likely to fall into water… a bit. You also now have more options for your party's behavior via the new and shiny strategy menu!
Lots of new Quests
This update has Quests. Many Quests. 8 of them. You'll find them in Bergen Village, Maroon Valley, Ba'kii Kum, and Basin Keep. They come with many new boss fights, mini games, and other cool challenges! So make sure to keep an eye out for those flashing exclamation marks!
New Help Menu
Remember when you used to look at a trading offer, trying to figure out what a certain modifier does? Help Menu to the rescue! With a simple button press you now can see on screen explanations for all kind of menu content, including stats, modifiers, and many other things. The new help menu is available in most menu views, including Trading, Shopping, Equipment, Inventory, and many more.
This update packs a lot of smaller cool features that are also worth mentioning
- A improve display when Swapping Circuit Branches. You can actually see the skills you will exchange.
- A new SP bar that allows you to quickly see your current SP without moving your eyes away from the player
- Total Damage Number for each enemy to better estimate the amount of damage you deal – pretty much inspired by what PixelFerrets did in Secret of Grindea
- An improved stun system that solves a few frustrating counter-attack moments (looking at you, Apollo) and allows the player to escape a long chain of combos
- Changed order of menu buttons! The Quest Menu is now much easier to reach.
- New Buff stacking behavior: your number of concurrent buff now starts with 1 and can be extended with the appetite skill. Also: you can start a new buff at any time while buffs with overlapping stat improvement will cancel each other out.
- No more unlimited combat art charging. Sorry, but this was never intended to be a feature!
Contest: Beat the Boss of the Grand Krys'kajo!
This is possibly our final boss contest before the full release!
Show us how you beat the boss of the Grand Krys'kajo!
Just create a public video (Youtube, Twitch, doesn't matter) and send us a link to email@example.com.
You can add your live reaction or leave it out, whatever you prefer!
Among all people who send us a video, we'll draw the following prize:
You get your personal NPC guest role somewhere in CrossWorlds – you decide the location! You can be an Avatar, a regular citizen or maybe something else? We'll work together to figure out the details!
Deadline: Sunday, March 5, 23:59 PDT
Phews! That's all.
Have fun with the new release and make sure to beat up that new boss for good!
And now comes the time of Bug hunting.
Someone contacted us and informed us that we flagged the 64 bit version wrong and that it was not downloadable trough the client. Uhm. Well, our mistake. We fixed it :) Should work now. In other news we're working hard on preparing a new update for mid / end of February.
- Will there be Multiplayer?
- How long will the game be?
This highly depends on how you play the game. If you want you can just progress the story and don't sweat the exploration part or questing at all, you might get about 8-10 hours of gameplay. However, if you do quest and explore the world and try to find every secret, 30-40 hours are what you could get.Overall we always like to say: If you doing a mix of both, you'll get around 15-20 hours worth of game. But it could be more. There are people who played over 70 hours now. And some who manage to finish the game within 2 hours (after training several 100 of hours).
- What's the current state of the game?
From the 5 Skill-Trees you can already unlock skills on 3 of them including special Combat Arts. You can also team up with another player called Emilie and bash enemies and explore together.
Our present milestone is the creation of the last "big" area, including 3 smaller dungeons and a town.
- I found a typo! Where can I tell you about it?
If you find a typo, spelling or grammar error or have a wording suggestion you can press F7 at any time. Here you can quickly enter a name and you email (Not mandatory) and then get a list of all the latest lines of dialogs and texts in the game. You can edit them, add a comment and send it our way right from the game!
So… TL;DR press F7 to send us you typo reports!
If the text with the error isn't visible in the list, you can send us a report to firstname.lastname@example.org or write in the forum.
- Will <insert language> be supported in the game?
Maybe! We get this question a lot and so many people are trying to help us translate the game into a different language. Thanks so much everyone!
As long as the game is in the development, a lot of the texts change over time or get outright replaced. So we don't want to translate the game right away. BUT! We do intend to translate the game into different languages after we reached gold!
Currently planned are: English, German and French. More will follow for sure!
- Give me the game already! A.K.A When's the release?
- Will I be able to transfer my save file into new versions?
However, due to code changes, item placements and so on, old saves can lead to bugs and/or balancing problems. The color of version number in the save is red in that case and you get an additional info text.
In case your old save file won't work, we provide Save Presets that allows you to jump to specific points in the game with matching level and equipment.
- Will I have to replay the game at release?
- Does this game have controller support?
