Here we go! We finally release the next Early Access Version 0.3 of CrossCode! This release comes with major changes and additions, a longer story, and one major feature update: the quest system! Your Steam Version will update automatically. Our Indiegogo backers will find the new DRM free version at

The Story continues

Now you can find out what will happen after the cargo ship: Lea’s adventure will finally continue!


See new places!


Meet new people!


Explore the dungeon of the puzzle mode properly integrated into the plot!


Enter the CrossCentral.


And finally enter Rookie Harbor the proper way. That’s right, the story now finally includes the puzzle and exploration mode!

Skip to the new stuff with Save Presets

With the new release, the Puzzle and Exploration mode are gone forever! Ha! There is only one mode to start the game now: The Story. Of course, not everybody will be very excited about playing the whole story all over again, just to get to the new stuff. We feel you and got you covered!


Incoming: Save Presets! They allow you to start the game from a fixed point within the plot! There is a preset to start the game right in front of the puzzle part and one before the exploration part, so it’s very similar to the previous game modes!


Second: Your old saves will still… well… sorta work! You will be able to load your old saves at your own risk. There’ll most likely be errors but they may not all be game breaking. Just be aware that balancing will be a mess and there might be several strange situations. Have fun playing around!

The Quest System

Version 0.3 comes with one big major new feature: the Quest System! (insert reverb effect) This finally allows you to do quest the proper way!


You got a proper quest accept and solve dialog!


You can see the current state of the faved quest.


Of course you also get a list of all your quests in the menu.


You will also find many new quests with all kind of different tasks, like this amazing Parkour Quest.

Bergen Trail Extended


You can now climb that mountain of Bergen Trail even higher!


Along the way, you will even find a couple of puzzles!


And of course new enemies, too!

And also, Bergen Trail finally got his own BGM. And it is epic!


Experimental Linux and OSX Support for Backers

For all our Indiegogo backers with Explorer Perk and above we now offer experimental support for Linux (32 and 64 bit) and OSX! You can download the version from CrossCentral. Please tell us if things work! Once it turns out that those versions run stable, we'll start uploading them to Steam as well.

It was a close one

Because we’re masters of time management we decided to crunch toward the end and did a lot of content and coding… like… today.

Anyway...this means there will most likely be bugs. If you find any of them, please send error reports our way via mail or the forum and we’ll make sure to fix it in the 0.3.1 which will happen probably very soon!

What’s next?

There’s no time for a break for us! We already planned out Version 0.4.0. Also, we really want to push the teleport system. So much that we want to release it before 0.4.0 arrives. So expect some sort of 0.3.5 Version very soon! With this you’ll be finally able to quickly teleport from one point to another without having to talk to an NPC or backtrack. Also the next DevLog will include the usual preview on Version 0.4.0. So keep your eyes on the blog!

And that’s all! Have fun with the new release and until the next update!

Can anyone help me with this? Since a few updates (sadly I don't know since which one exactly) I have some kind of weird black/white box at the bottom-left of the game which flickers from time to time, but reduces my vision a lot. Anything I can do?
Screenshots: Goo.gl Goo.gl Goo.gl
FYI: I'm using Chrome Beta. I already tried it without any extensions activated. In Firefox it runs well without the weird box but I'd like to play in my main browser instead. :/

Hi! Sadly I can't reproduce the problem on my machine with my regular Chrome or Canary. It might be that this is a bug of Chrome Beta specifically. Since we didn't update the game since last December (the Cross Updates are more like DevLogs... we don't update the game whenever we post them), I think this is most likely a browser issue and thus beyond our control. There is a chance that this issue will resolve itself over time (it might be a bug within Chrome Beta that will be fixed). Let's hope for the best. :O

Please let us know when things get better or worse for you!

Just finished playing this second demo and WOW what an improvement!

I don't know why but the plot confused me a little. Had to read everything again to make sense of out it. Maybe it's just me.

Good work guys. Hoping to see more news over the following months.

I just played the demo yesterday and wow! I'm really excited about this game!
I enjoyed every single part of it and it brought back memories of me playing with my GBA and so on.
I love the art of the game, I've been doing some pixel art recently and man! I wish to get as good as you guys.
The game is really fun to play and I'll be looking forward for every update of the game and the IndieGoGo campaign.
Definitely a game I want :D

Well I haven't been around for a while in IndieDB and just when i come to see what's going on I see this! I have already finished the story mode and now searching all the chests in exploring :3. This game is becoming more awesome by the day. I was getting keen to it since the very first time I saw it but I got to say this caught me by surprise, since it's way better than I expected it to be. The only thing that I see as a con is that sometimes, the combat system is kind of difficult, what i mean is, I often lose my mouse after aiming and then wanting to melee. But maybe it's one of those games that you need the gamepad to play :). Oh well, 10/10 can't wait for full release!

This game.. the quality is absurdly nice. The pixel art, the very details, not too much text, everything incredibly well balanced.

I'm freaking jealous, congratulations!

Funny enough, I get this. At least when downloading, Chrome insists that the archive could be dangerous. My gut tells me this is some overreacting anti-virus software because of missing checksums and the external libraries we provide. Gotta look into this :D
