Crossing Souls is a weird beast. It’s a game that takes its cues from action-adventure classics such as Legend of Zelda, but where those game usually features a typical fantasy or scifi world, Crossing Souls lets you interact with anything from cops to vikings. It’s all very magical and life and death, and it looks great. The game’s being made for Windows, Mac, and Linux, with other formats possible in the future, all depending on the crowdfunding campaign of course.
Alrigt, so this game has a little of everything, and looks amazing. But what will it be like, really. Here’s how the creators describe Crossing Souls.
The game we take more elements from is clearly The Legend of Zelda. Dungeons, a vast map, exploration, camera perspective and puzzles are elements in this game series and so will be our game.
However, we are looking for a cinematic touch with a more linear plot, so that the player won’t miss the storyline at any moment. Our battles will also be more dynamic than the ones used to be seen in the most classic Zelda games, as the player must switch between the characters to use different objects and strategies.
Final Fantasy Series is our clear reference when attempting to create a charismatic group and telling a deep and intertwined history. Our characters will have a very defined personality, which one will evolve over time according to events.
Metal Gear, Metroid, Little Big Adventure… there are a lot of games that have inspired us and we carry them with us. It would be impossible to name them all, but each one of them has offered something to us and influenced when making this adventure.
Crossing Souls is an ode to our childhood, to quirky hairstyles, to funky t-shirts, to adventure films and cassettes… but, above all, it’s a tribute to consoles and video games… Those games that gave us so many unforgettable hours of fun.
The perks start with a digital copy of the Crossing Souls game, but then it goes gamer haywire with buddy packs, soundtracks, and whatnot.
