Crytek's groundbreaking development technology is now more accessible than ever! For just 9.90 USD/EUR per month, developers everywhere can subscribe and gain total access to the industry-leading feature set of CRYENGINE, without ever having to pay licensing fees or royalties.

CRYENGINE is the first all-in-one development solution with truly scalable computation and benchmark graphics technologies. With CRYENGINE, developers are fully equipped to create standout game experiences, using the engine behind games like Ryse: Son of Rome and Crysis series.

The Famous CRYENGINE Sandbox editor is a production proven, third-generation real-time tool suite designed and built by AAA Developers. All development features of a CRYENGINE game can be produced, edited and played immediately with the “what you see is what you play” (WYSIWYP) system. The engine deals with the instant conversion and optimization of assets in real-time, enabling cross-platform changes to all elements of the game creation process. This increases the speed and quality of development, while significantly reducing the risk of creating multi-platform games.

Mechanics of Crossing the Line

You'll interact with the Shadow World - a resting place for dead souls. Summon a wretched wraith into our world. Rip the souls of your enemies and send them to the hungry phantoms or your enemy. The game is full of dark secrets and agonizing souls make unravelling them a perfect journey of anguish and horror.


Unique feature of the game is the ability to interact with Shadow World. You can destroy souls of your enemies on this world. When you enter it, time seems to stop and you have limited opportunity to destroy your enemy soul. After that you come back to your body, time resumes its flow and your foe falls dead. This provides a possibility for countless combos. Surrounded by 4 enemies you can aim at two of them, turn to Shadow World slay other two, then come back and pull the trigger.

Taking soul

There are situations in which you have a lot more on you plate. You can open a portal into Shadow World and summon heinous abominations. Upon entering our world these creatures goes berserk and slay everyone they see. This may save you in the tight spot or kill you if you arent careful with it.

Well this EaaS is a colossal disappointment. Way to screw over your hobbyist fans while simultaneously doing very little for your indie fans all under the guise of being "indie friendly."
