Welcome to the year 2017, everyball! Yeah it’s about time we do another update post. We’ll show some recent progress, got the results of the recent Boss Contest for you and other great news as well!
The next version 0.9.0 is scheduled for Release in February. Not only will this version include the last dungeon of the Jungle with another epic boss fight, it will also finally include the complete circuit tree for all elements with all skills fully implemented, with the exception of Level 3 combat arts.
And yes, that means you’ll get all level 1 and level 2 combat arts available!
That’s a lot of combat options at your disposal!
GET READY FOR LOTS OF GIFS
Some of the remaining level 1 combat arts that have still been missing.
Entering Neutral Level 2! This is “Final Showdown” the successor of “First Cut”.
More Level 2 Neutral Combat Art Madness!
Entering Cold Level 2! Now Lea can downright freeze enemies.
Alternatively, just freeze’em while pushing them upwards!
Entering Heat Level 2! Some of those attacks might remind you of something~
Entering Shock Level 2! As requested by many, we added the almost mandatory “chain lightning” attack.
Shock also features some other attacks that are just incredibly fast.
In fact, some of these attacks have been so fast hitting, that the mass of damage numbers became sort of a problem. That’s why we decided to add damage summaries and limited the number of damage numbers that can appear simultaneously for each enemies.
We also worked on party members!
Emilie now can use Combat Arts, too!
And finally: say hello to you new Hexacast companion C’Tron!
Apart from combat stuff, we also worked on several new Quests in Basin Keep and Ba’kii Kum – some of which might surprise you with entirely new tasks!
So’najiz Boss Contest Results
With the release of Version 0.8 we once again held a contest for everyone to beat the new boss within a week and record it in a public video.
And we got a whole of 36 submissions!
Wolf and Friends Gaming
In a recent gamedev stream we have computed the random number to pick the winner before an audience.
And the winner is:
You won a guest role in Basin Keep or V’rda Vil, the Shad Settlement of the Jungle! We’ll make sure to contact you about the details… soonish!
CrossCode is now available on GoG!
That’s right! Now you can get CrossCode Early Access on Good old Games, obviously DRM-free!
To celebrate the release on the new platform, we also have a 15% discount!
The next CrossWeek!
With the next release coming close, we decided to have another CrossWeek! It’s that time when many of our team members meet in Hannover for a good week of full-time CrossCode development! We usually get a lot of stuff done during those meetups. We also tend to burn stuff. Let’s hope that won’t happen this time around.
The CrossWeek will start February 1st and last until February 9th! Expect a lot of small updates and images on our Twitter and of course, a big summary at the end!
And that’s all for today’s post. Until next time!
