Indie games are a dime a dozen, and it’s not all too often that one comes along that gets us this pumped. We’re talking about Fourattic’s Crossing Souls. Taking place in 1986 California, players are greeted with fun, throwback, 1980’s animation, beautiful music and gorgeous pixel art. With the feel of a Saturday morning cartoon, Crossing Souls takes players on an adventure spanning between life and death. When a strange artifact turns up allowing a group of kids to see beyond the barrier of the two worlds, chaos ensues. This action-adventure game pays homage to the ’80’s RPGs that many of us grew up with, while maintaining a modern feel for everyone—meaning it will be available for Windows, Mac and Linux.
While other games may have a similar style, Crossing Souls seems to be in a league of its own. Looking at their Kickstarter page may leave you a little confused as in some places it say it will be released in 2015 while others say 2016. We’re pretty sure that the 2016 might be a typo, but tread softly just in case. Granted the game has only been on Kickstarter for a day, it already looks leaps and bounds ahead of other games that’s we have seen this early in development. So, if you are looking for a pure ’80’s nostalgia rush, Crossings Souls looks like its got you cover.
