Klabater drops Linux and macOS support for Crossroads Inn

By - | Views: 10,496

Crossroads Inn and later Crossroads Inn Anniversary Edition from developer Klabater was crowdfunded in March 2019 and later released in October 2019 and now Klabater are leaving Linux and macOS behind.

This is one title that's had a bit of a rough history. At release it was a complete mess, so much so that they later rebranded it to Crossroads Inn Anniversary Edition and it didn't exactly get much better from there. On Steam it has a Mixed overall score from users, on GOG it's a low 2.3 / 5 stars and across Metacritic it also has a rather low 59.

Seems like Klabater are starting to distance themselves from it with an abrupt announcement on Steam that mentioned:

We are working to get patch 3.0.6 playable for Mac and Linux users however, once that is complete, support for these platforms will be discontinued.

That was it, all that was said about dropping two platforms. Not even a basic and simple apology, no details on why it's being done. I have to admit my disappointment in Klabater on the handling of this game.

This has been added to a list of other games that did the same on our Wiki. A real shame when this happens but thankfully it's not exactly a game that was turning any heads. Even so, it's still a reminder that this does happen at times. It is again another part of the reason that Valve likely teamed up with CodeWeavers to bring Steam Play Proton to play Windows games unofficially, but that doesn't change the frustration of paying customers being supported, and then one day just - not.

We did reach out to Klabater to ask for further clarification to no reply.

Quoting: slaapliedjeIt is games like this why I stopped (almost) getting anything that is in EA. Basically if I like the ifldea, I will put it on the wishlist.
I can't remember, does the wishlist show the dev that it is there, and does it show preferred OS?

Both. The devs get to see the number of wishlists (which also affects placement in the store) expandable by platform. You need to set your preferences to only show you games for the platform you're interested in for your wishlist entry to be counted as a particular platform, though.
