About This Game

It's late at night in your 80’s bedroom, and a weird energy fills the air, making your “G64” computer flicker oddly. Brushing it off, you roll up a character sheet for the tabletop roleplaying games on your shelf. Before you finish, dark portals appear on your desk and little pixel creatures cross over into our world! Defend your character through the stages of each campaign book - whether it’s all in your head or not.

A Unique Gameplay Hybrid

CrossOver takes some classic concepts from traditionally “casual” genres (Match 3 and Tower Defence) and crosses them into a new and eccentric challenge with Action, Strategy, RPG and Puzzle elements. Featuring over 100 levels in fantasy and sci-fi settings, extra game modes, and uniquely asymmetrical Co-op (one player controlling the dice and the other handling the attacks), CrossOver is... let's face it, it's bloody weird. Good thing there's a demo, right?

A Deep Challenge

Each campaign includes:
  • Shops to buy armor and items
  • RPG progression (earn XP, level up, increase stats)
  • Dozens of spells and weapons to find
  • Mercenaries to hire
  • Random encounters with Fighting Fantasy book type choices
  • Persistent gems to unlock classes/races (15 of each per game setting) or trade in for extra gold

A Wealth Of Content

  • Fantasy and Sci-Fi game modules - more genres may be released later as expansions
  • 7 x Campaign books per module, each with several stages
  • Procedurally generated Endless Modes (Solo and Co-op for each game module) to challenge the Online Leaderboards
  • Several Co-op Scenarios for each game module
  • Dice Defense game mode for each game module - autobattling dice towers to upgrade and move against endless waves of enemies
  • Unlockable art gallery
  • Hidden minigame

Casual Mode

If you're overwhelmed by the game's unrelenting pace, try the Casual Mode. When toggled on, Casual Mode reduces the damage dealt by enemies to a selectable percentage (even 0%), allowing players to focus more on chill enjoyment than frantic survival - without needing to pause all the time to catch a breath. Additionally, Deterrents (which act as a pseudo time limit) are disabled, enabling you to grind at your leisure for gold and experience points before finishing a stage. Casual Mode is only for solo campaign play and can be toggled on or off at any point without needing to restart a campaign.

Casual Mode ensures that "CrossOver: Roll For Initiative" remains accessible and enjoyable for all types of players. It's still weird, though.
