Take the best out of two popular genres, find a good balance between them and make a great game. That's what CrossCode does. And it works pretty well. You get the puzzles of Zelda-esque dungeons and are rewarded with the great variety of equipment you know and love from RPGs. During the fast-paced battles you will use the tools you find on your journey to reveal and exploit the enemies' weaknesses and at the same time will be able to choose equipment and skills for a more in-depth approach in fighting your enemies.
CrossCode is an action RPG designed in the style of a 16bit SNES title that was originally funded on Indiegogo. You play as a girl that has lost her voice and memories and has been put into an MMO RPG with the goal of getting back your memories and preventing yourself from being deleted from the system. As you traverse the world you will meet a large cast of characters. You have the ability to do melee attacks when you get into combat, in the style of the top down Zelda games but a bit more flashy and Ys like, but you also can make use of ranged attacks that you can freely aim. Also in the style of Ys or Metroidvania games are the dungeons and story segments that will unlock new abilities that will allow you to access new areas. You can find a variety of side quests that will get you new equipment and give you more to do. There is a good variety of enemies and the fast paced combat will make for a challenging game for most people. The artstyle is great and the music is good and fitting of the SNES style as well. The game is still in early access and not complete yet but it is getting near a full release and is worth checking out now if the genre interests you.
