CrossCode is a 16-bit style Sci-Fi ARPG, which is set in a fictional MMORPG. That's rather meta.

Interestingly, CrossCode is built on HTML5 using the impact.js game engine, originally being an experimental demo that was played through a web browser.

Hmmm...
To do:
  • Clean the document format.
  • Break this up into sub-pages.
  • Debug features.
  • Document unused maps (there's a lot of them).
  • Check for more unused strings.
  • Add more demo leftovers (strings, code, etc.).

Concept Art

Hmmm...
To do:
There's a few more images stored in the pyxl format.

There is quite a lot concept art and mockups within the game files, most of them in conveniently-named directories.

Lea Sketch

CrossCode-LeaRunConcept.png

\assets\media\concept\title-bot-chan-dash.png

A rough sketch of Lea running, who was supposedly called "bot-chan" during early development judging by the file name. Quite fitting.

This sketch was used a base for demo's start screen background, which also remains unused in the final version.

Hidden Dev Message

I see you are browsing through the code of our game! Hope you having a good time around here. I thought I adda little extra for you here, since you took the effort to check out the optimized/obfuscated code of CrossCode.If you happen to have a particular question about a feature, you can write us a mail and will be happy to answer it!Simply check out our homepage over at www.radicalfishgames.com! Also don't tell Lachsen you found this, or he will throw evil looks at me all day! - R.D
