CrossCode Modding Shoutout: Autumn’s Genesis

Hello everyball!

With the CrossCode console release about to happen next week we’re now writing about something entirely different: CrossCode Modding projects

CrossCode Modding

To be frank: we never really designed CrossCode with modding in mind. But yet, it still happened – maybe because the JavaScript code base makes the game fairly accessible.
For several years now we’ve been watching a couple of smaller and larger modding projects appear over time. However, now is the first time the modding community actively organizes a whole event, so we thought we could help with a little shoutout.

If you are interested in the modding community in general, feel free to visit their Discord Server

However, before you continue installing and playing mods:

Important Disclaimer for CrossCode Mods

Modding projects are unofficial content and as such, we won’t be able to help you with any issue that may arise from installing and playing mods for CrossCode.

Be aware that installing mods can potentially break your save data, so it’s recommended to back up your saves before installing any modding project.

One option to back up your saves:

  • Start CrossCode and load the save you want to backup
  • Pressing F10
  • Save the text of the upper field into a text file

To import your save file again:

  • Start CrossCode and press F10
  • Insert the text of your save backup in the lower text field and press Submit
  • Your imported save will be the last save in your list of saves

Now that we got that out of the way, let’s talk events!

Autumn’s Genesis – Master Trials Score Attack!

Starting today you can participate in a very special challenge, taking on very strong variants of the game’s boss fights and try to get the best score!

Here’s how that will look like:

If this sounds exciting to you, you will find all the necessary information here:

Autumns Genesis Installation Guide and Rules for Participation

The event will last until September 1st, so there’s still plenty of time.

And that’s pretty much it!

Depending on how things go, we might be giving more shoutout to other CrossCode modding projects in the future. Until then, feel free to join the modding community and maybe start modding yourself!

Until next time!

CrossCode for Consoles to be released on July 9th!

The long wait is over. After countless requests we are finally ready to announce that CrossCode will soon be available on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. On July 9th 2020 Lea will say “Hi” to new audiences.

Each console will have its own exclusive quest with its own little dungeon and bossfight. And since we thought that our loyal PC playerbase might feel left out: You’ll get a free update with your own exclusive quest as well!
And who knows? Maybe these quests are part of something bigger…

Physical and Collector’s Editions

There is more to announce: We have partnered up with ININ Games to release physical editions of CrossCode. The game will be available for Switch and PS4 in all major retail stores in Europe and North America starting from August 28 2020.

And for those who want to throw an extra amount of money at the game, preorders of the exclusive and limited SteelBook® and Collector’s Edition are available starting today only at Strictly Limited Games.

[Insert Platform Name Here] When?

We will soon have something too share. Like, you know, SOON.

CrossCode: Lea Skin in One Step From Eden + Recent Progress

Hello everyball!

… It really has been a while hasn’t it? Most people reading this will likely be stuck in quarantine or practicing social distancing. Here in Germany, most companies are switching to home office – which is something Radical Fish Games has been doing for many years already. So at least in terms of CrossCode development: things will go on.

Today we wanted to give you a small update about what we’ve been up to. But before that we have an exciting announcement: One Step from Eden just released and Lea is in it!

Lea skin in One Step From Eden

One Step from Eden is a deckbuilding roguelike with a battle system reminiscent of Megaman Battle Network. And you can play as Lea as well!
Our blue-haired Spheromancer is an unlockable skin for Saffron, one of the main characters of the game!

One Step from Eden released today for PC and Nintendo Switch!

Recent development on CrossCode

We’ve been working on a lot of different things and almost all of them related to the upcoming Post-game DLC. We’re making good progress, but there’s also still much to do.

Instead of getting into details, we will just leave you with a number of screenshots and GIFs so you get an idea about what’s coming:

Keep in mind that pretty much all of this is still work-in-progress!

As for the console versions: things are moving forwards, submissions have succeeded. We’re getting close, but we still don’t have a release date yet. Sorry!

And that’s all!

Stay safe, everyone. And remember to wash your hands!

CrossCode 1.2.0-5 – New NW.js version + SteelSeries Engine Support

Hello everyball,

as we announced a few weeks back, we finally follow up with the small promised technical update of CrossCode! With version 1.2.0-5 we update NW.js to a newer version and also add basic support for the SteelSeries Engine.

NW.js Version update

With this version, CrossCode now runs with NW.js version 0.35.5, which hopefully fixes some of the memory leak issue several players have reported on Windows, as well as crashing issues on Linux and OSX. If you have issues with the new version (or past issues remain), please let us know via E-Mail (contact@radicalfishgames.com) or in the Steam Forum.

For users of the nwjs_old branch, things stay the same.

SteelSeries Engine 3 Support

SteelSeries Engine 3 is a tool that let’s you adjust all the funky periphery that SteelSeries has to offer. It also doubles as a kind of local server, allowing applications to register themselves as “Games” and illuminate your hardware. SteelSeries asked us to integrate this into CrossCode and being avid gamers ourselves the only logical answer was to say “yes”.
All jokes aside, what this means is that we can highlight certain keys on your keyboard based on in-game context. We are currently supporting all Steel Series Keyboards that have Per-Key-Lightning.

List of supported keyboards.
Download for SteelSeries Engine 3 / Gamesense


Once Game Sense is activated in the options menu of CrossCode your function keys will turn into a Health-Bar, while the number keys will light-up to the corresponding element. Future updates might extend this feature as players request cool stuff or we come up with more ideas.

Big thanks to SteelSeries who provided us with the hardware and tech support to implement this.

And that’s all for this update! Sorry for the lack of new content, but as we mentioned before: new things are being worked on! Expect more in 2020!

Until next time!
