“We have all contributed a lot of energy, ideas and time to make Crossroads Inn a great game! We have clashed in hundreds of debates over mechanical, narrative and UI decisions to the very final day, because we believe there’s always time to do something better!” – said Michal Gembicki, CEO of Klabater and Kraken Unleashed – “Regardless of all that, as a small studio, we know our limits. We are aware that we probably could have made some features work better and some mechanics less clunky. So here’s a promise to fans of the game – we will keep improving the game after the release adding new features, balanicing gameplay and improving perfromence, because this game is much more then just a business to us.”
With a focus on the belief that the community around a game thrives when everyone plays a part, Klabater has made clear to fans how they plan to manage their flagship game Crossroads Inn. The detailed infographic gives a first look at the kind of content that players can expect to see in Crossroads Inn over the coming months. As a thanks to fans for their continued support, Klabater has planned several free DLCs for players to enjoy in the upcoming months.
Alongside the DLC roadmap, Klabater has also revealed a clip of the exclusive song ‘Forget me not’ performed by German singer Alina Lesnik, who was recently featured on the Surge 2 OST and is known for her metal, folk & soundtrack covers on YouTube.
“When Klabater contacted me to perform an exclusive song for Crossroads Inn, I was really thrilled! I was of course excited by the opportunity to sing in a game at all, but above all else I was immediately hooked by the game’s setting. I mean, what’s cooler than fantasy tavern simulator mixed with unique medieval vibe?” – said Alina Lesniak – “I’m really happy to become a part of this game and the team! It was also a great experience to work on a video clip with this unique atmosphere. Marcin Pukaluk did an amazing job composing ‘Forget me not’, I am really happy with the result and can’t wait to play the game!“

ABOUT THE GAME

In Campaign mode, micromanagement is just a prelude to a rich story as the kingdom is in turmoil and a shift of power is expected. Your Inn will soon attract the attention of important political and military figures, who are desperately trying to hold on to the reins of power. Gamers will become part of a large-scale drama full of political intrigues, vivid characters, treacherous NPC’s and dangerous quests inspired by RPG games – You will even have a damsel in distress to save!
