CrossCode Soundtrack Released + 1.0.0-7 Update is out

thumb6

Full game just came out! If you’ve enjoyed the music of the game, we have great news for you:

CrossCode’s soundtrack, which was made by our composer Deniz Akbulut, is available for purchase on many platforms including Bandcamp, iTunes, Spotify, Google Play and Steam thanks to Materia Collective. We’re also very excited to announce that the soundtrack can be pre-ordered as a Limited Edition CD album now, which will be handled by the fine folks at First Press Games.

It will come with 2 CDs, a high quality clear jewel case, 12-page booklet and it will even include an obi/spine which is typical for a Japanese soundtrack release. The CD album will ship around November 15th. You’re able to pre-order the album on Bandcamp (US shipping) and directly from First Press Games (Europe shipping).

Deniz is of course also very thrilled about having his debut soundtrack be released on CD! He is always very thankful to anyone who has supported him and bought the soundtrack.

Hotfix 1.0.0-7

Since the initial full release we went through several hotfix updates and the game finally reached a (somewhat) stable state.

Crashes might still happen though. This is mostly when you use the new NW.js version for CrossCode (which is default on most platforms and when using the nwjs_new branch on Steam) together with a high sample rate of over 100kHz in your audio output device settings, since it makes NW.js (the “Web Audio API” in particular) extremely wasteful with memory.

We now did two things to hopefully reduce the amount of crashes.

  1. Create a 64bit application for Windows that has access to more memory. It should automatically update on Steam accordingly if you have a 64bit OS
  2. Optimize music loading in general, since the crashes usually happen on maps where a lot of music is loaded at once (this also has the positive side-effect that certain maps will load a lot faster)

Hopefully this will reduce the amount of crashes. If you are a Steam user currently on the default branch, you can try to switch to the nwjs_new beta branch to check if crashes still happen or not. Feedback would be highly appreciated!

And that’s all for now.
Maybe now we can actually afford to take a little break~

  • Good job guys! I hope you can have that break ;)

    Question about the 64bit version for windows.
    Is it going to be available for any other plataforms apart from Steam?

    Thanks and congratulations for the release!

    Please, how does one join the nwjs beta version?

    • Right click on Crosscode in your steam library go to properties click on betas click on where it says NONE – opt out of all beta programs and click nwjs_new

  • here’s hoping you guys have plan for an eventual switch port, i’d love to have this in a portable format

  • nwjs_new beta version is working super smoothly for me, thanks guys!

  • When will the game be actually finished? I got the ending andunlocked the future but won’t let me play… When will I be able to?

    • The “future” is not really part of the main plot and should be considered an extension that we will release eventually (next year?) and also most likely as a paid DLC.

  • You guys have made one of the most fun game I’ve ever played. It is up there with the Ys series (particularly the 6-origin-7 era of Ys) as some of the most wonderfully designed ARPG combat system and encounters.

    I will be looking forward to buying and playing any DLC you make for this. And any future game if you ever have the strength to do this again! you rock! Thank you for this gem! everything about this is a reflection of the blood and sweat you’ve put into it!

    I can say without a doubt that opting into the “nwjs_new” beta on Steam gives way better DualShock 4 support. It wouldn’t work at all for me without the beta and it works like a charm with it. I should probably also mention that I mean native support. I don’t have any button mappers or Xbox gamepad emulators installed.
