What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early Access is a reliable way to gather essential feedback and communicate directly with the player base. With how complex Cross Blitz is with its card interactions and layered game systems, balancing the game is key to creating something special, memorable, and above all else - fun! And without substantial input from the players themselves, this will be difficult to achieve at the level we hope to.

We aim to make the best game we can, and we know that’s only possible with the aid of the community. We believe all games benefit greatly from listening to those that play it. And the benefit of rolling out new content in succession rather than all at once allows us to improve things as we go in a more manageable fashion, this being a major plus for a smaller studio like ours.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“14-16 months.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Major content additions, balance changes, and UX adjustments. The full version will have 3 additional hero campaigns (for a total of 5), each with 3 chapters to complete. For Tusk Tales, the rogue-lite mode, an additional 15 playable mercenaries will be available (for a total of 20), with many more regions to explore and items to unlock. A final unified story campaign bringing the 5 heroes together is planned as well.

New cards, relics, trinkets and more will also be included as part of the content expansions outlined above. Based on what we’ve created so far, the total in-game card count for the full version will most likely be somewhere between 400-500 cards.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Cross Blitz is currently in an excellent state, with content including 2 heroes, each with their own playstyles and lengthy story campaigns to complete. These playstyles consist of 4 deck archetypes each, allowing for a great variety of card combos and synergies to explore with the 200 cards already available. The roguelite mode, Tusk Tales, has potentially endless replayability due to the random nature of each run. The meta-progression systems allow for constant feelings of improvement as you play, with several Mercenaries to unlock and upgrade.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Yes. The price will increase when we leave Early Access. However, the game will remain at the same lower price during its time in Early Access.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We plan on listening and responding to feedback, suggestions and bug reports from the community, both via the Steam forums and the Tako Boy Studio’s Discord server. We also aim to share frequent development updates and more in-depth development blogs to keep the community in the loop. Additionally, maintaining a clear schedule on what’s coming next in the development pipeline and making that information readily available to the player base is a major priority for us.

By maintaining open and honest communication, we hope to foster a passionate community that feels like their voices matter. We’ve always loved interacting with the players, directly chatting with them about design decisions and laughing along with them when exciting moments occur in our games, and we aim to continue that style of personal communication during Cross Blitz’s development!”

Whether you explore its rich story or its challenging roguelite mode, Cross Blitz will test your tactical mind as you venture forth and build the perfect decks - utilizing clever card combos and synergies as you fight against the many colorful foes scattered throughout Crossdawn Isle.

Join the fearless pirate Redcroft as he strikes a deal to win back his stolen freedom from the merciless Princess Eingana; or help the pop-star Violet in her search for a mystical artifact to stop the evil escapades of a mysterious doppelgänger hijacking her stardom!

Throughout each hero’s adventure, you’ll explore a variety of unique locations while unlocking a wealth of new cards, abilities and relics. Use your treasure trove of strategic options to perfect the ultimate deck that best suits your preferred playstyle.

Engage in captivating battles that require strategy and cunning - with more than 200 cards to experiment with - as you build powerful decks to stomp your foes into dust! Easy to pick but chock-full of challenge, you'll have to harness the strength of your minions alongside a plethora of spells, traps, and match-finishing Blitz Bursts if you're to claim victory!

Every encounter is a new challenge to overcome, so be prepared to be put to the test. But don’t fret - you’ll grow stronger as you level up with each conquered opponent!

Craft new cards with the help of Mawlder the Melder, the grizzled cardsmith. By earning ingredients and recipes from battles, you’ll be able to craft even more powerful cards to add to your collection!

In Tusk Tales, you’ll use the island map to explore the expansive world of Cross Blitz, visiting its many peculiar regions. But nothing is set in stone on this perilous adventure, as every run is different: your path will never be the same and adaptation is key to survival. Think before you act, as each choice you make will impact your journey.

Select from a multitude of mercenaries, each with their own playstyle and starting deck of companions, as you battle your way through increasingly difficult opponents. Purchase and equip powerful trinkets that instantly boost the strength of your chosen cards. Additionally, unique landmarks can be found throughout each region of the map, offering a variety of choices that provide new and exciting ways to adjust your strategic approach, run after run.

Cross Blitz is the creative result of our studio’s passion for both strategic card games and quirky, character-driven RPGs. Development began in 2019, and has been steadily chugging along ever since.
