Hey innkeepers!

We would like to share more info about the upcoming future and plans to expand Crossroads Inn, whose production costs refunded in the first week of its sale (which is just great, THANK YOU!). The interest in our tavern simulator keeps growing, and the current wishlist amount of new interested users passed the 120,000 mark, can you believe it? We even ended up among the group of 20 top releases on Steam in October, when taking into account the revenue obtained during the first couple of weeks from it’s release date.

Sooo… currently our studio is working on previously announced expansions (+ 1 more, see the roadmap!) and porting the game to Windows Store, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch platforms. The release of console version is scheduled for 2020.


Crossroads Inn in Top Steam Releases of October 2019

PESTS, PUPPIES &... TAXES

We also confirmed our long-term goals about further development of the game’s universe. In the year 2020, we will share new events for the game’s community and additional language versions, which will expand the target audience market. There are also plans to release four free DLC and five paid expansion packs, like Pests & Puppies or Tax Collector.



First of all, in January, a first expansion called Pests & Puppies will make its debut and introduce house pets, for example dogs that guard our tavern’s premises, or cats, who will take care of annoying pests like rats or mice. You will be able to join forces with the animals, which will improve the process of tavern management. They will also scare intruders away! The expansion contains, among others, 5 races of dogs and 6 races of cats, which can be chosen depending on the preference of our tavern’s guests. Wild animals like boars or foxes will also be introduced, not to mention annoying pests like louses, which will attack the clients.

For the end of the year, an expansion called Tax Collector will be released (and this is additional one we mentioned aboive), and it will focus on paying taxes and the role of a tax collector.

The first couple of weeks have confirmed our assumptions, that Crossroads Inn is a game from which most of you guys expect new content and long-term development. 2020 will be key for us from the perspective of working on our universum. Other than multiple already announced expansions, we also plan to add new language versions: french and spanish during the first half of the year, and two others in third and fourth quarter of 2020. Additionally, we’ve prepared a few technical news for our game, like Twitch integration, Steam Workshop integration, new scenarios and challenges for the innkeepers.[/i]

This week, we will release a large, very anticipated update, which will enable Mac support. Soon, the developers of Crossroads Inn will add Steam Workshop integration, which will enable modding the game, and further gameplay improvements.


Updated expansion roadmap of Crossroads Inn for 2020

CONSOLE VERSION IN 2020

Klabater's porting team, together with Kraken Unleashed developers, started working on Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and Windows Store versions of Crossroads Inn. The game will be available on consoles in 2020. – This is an answer to a common request of our players, and a possibility to enter a completely different market for our product. I’m hoping that this game, which is very ambitious from the perspective of gameplay and mechanics, will be a natural choice for players who are looking for something fresh on the console market. On PC, the game did very well in the US market, and we’re hoping that it repeats its result on Microsoft and Nintendo consoles. – said Robert Wesolowski, CEO at Klabater

Our company is especially happy about large contribution from players in the USA and Germany, which confirms the pre-release assumptions and underlines the effectiveness of its marketing operations. Adding French and Spanish language versions will enable an increase in marketing activity on these territories and enablement of sales in the upcoming months.

AND NOW FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT….

In case you find it interesting, we have prepared few interesting information about the game’s release in October:

  • TOP SELLER STEAM of October
  • Every edition of the game took first place in NEW & TRENDING category on Steam in october
  • Over 120 000 wishlists
  • More than 4000 people watching streams from the game – first place among all Steam live streams
  • Averagely 680 simultaneous players for a month after the game’s release
  • Over 300 videos and streams from the game on YT and Twitch, nearly 2 780 700 views
  • More than 1100 user reviews on Steam
  • Kickstarter success – 40 000 USD received from 1 300 backers

Dear All!

We are now nearly three weeks after Crossroads Inn premiere, it seems that most of the crucial bugs and crashes were already eliminated. Nevertheless, we are still improving the game, so if you still experience any problems (which is absolutely possible!), please make sure you let us now here:

Steam Bug Report Thread: https://steamcommunity.com/app/867290/discussions/0/1696095174290529251/
Our Discord channel:
http://discord.gg/rbUvEFg

We also have few announcements/requests as well:)

1. AUTO UPDATE ON STEAM: We really recommend you set auto updates for Crossroads Inn on Steam. We have learned that many players have this option switched off and they don’t patch the game at all or they do this rarely. That is why some of our beloved innkeepers still experience already eliminated bugs. Current build is 2.0.4 – please make sure you have updated version of Crossroads Inn before you report any bugs. It will help us to focus on really important problems.

2. DEVELOPERS’ RESPONSE TO BUG REPORTING: Please note that while we are trying to respond on regular basis in Monday-Friday timeframe, during weekends the response time may be longer. Sometimes we do not respond, because… see below:)

3. BUG OR A FEATURE? Please make sure you check steam threads related to gameplay and in-game help as we have noticed that some of ‘bug reports’ are in fact no bugs at all but rather they require creative thinking or checking in-game help.

4. ALL CHANGES/PATCHES REQUIRE GAME’S RESTART – yeah, without that it’s like it wasn’t updated at all;) Please remember to restart Crossroads Inn to enjoy patched version of the game.

Additional to that, we wanted to let know to our Mac supporters that we didn’t forget about you – we hope that very soon Crossroads Inn will be available for your devices! We just want to be sure that the game itself is fixed 100% before we launch it on Macs.
