Adventurous and Wonderful-Looking CrossCode is Funded on Indiegogo

German-based Radical Fish Games put their action-adventure game, CrossCode, onto Indiegogo back in March of this year. Thankfully, the wonderful looking action/platformer has gotten funded, going just above their €80,000 goal, raking in €90,026 in roughly two months.

The game began as a side-project in RPG Maker, but it quickly became its own experience as the passionate team rewrote almost all of the engine’s source code – which allowed them to incorporate a lot more than your typical RPG combat.

In the game, you play as Lea, a girl who becomes trapped within a virtual MMORPG. She mysteriously loses her memories, as well as the majority of her speech (she’s able to communicate with basic things like ‘hi’). As you progress through the online world, you’ll slowly unlock her memories, and maybe a look at how she got trapped within the online CrossWorlds.

The game has a lot of charm, and if you’re curious of how CrossCode plays, you can play it right in your browser,  or via download on Windows. I’d even suggest just listening to its soundtrack.

    I thought the demo was fun, reminded me of Ys a bit. Definitely a game I wouldn’t mind buying near release.

    Loved how the game looks, the bit art is cute, the music is nostalgic and the gameplay seems interesting, gave it a follow on steam and might get it on release thanks for the heads up.

    What’s interesting is that the MMORPG takes place in real life (within the game’s universe.) So you could say it’s an augmented reality MMO. It reminds me a lot of an anime called Accel World, which used a similar concept, but based it around a fighting game.

    How is it running in a browser? It’s not running purely off an HTML5 engine right? Looks great. Played around exploring the demo. I’ll give the story part a look when I have time.
