Explore secrets in a sacred operating system in Crossroad OS

By - | Views: 31,380

There's something wrong with this operating system. Crossroad OS is a single-player adventure where you solve puzzles, meet strange creatures and explore a sacred operating system created as a junction between the human and spirit world.

According to the developer it's a bit of a weird mixture between a puzzle and a horror game and that "Crossʀoad OS was created with noble intentions, however approaching the spirits without a stable mind is a risky undertaking. What secrets are hiding in the system's partitions?". Don't go expecting any jump-scares though it's more about the spooky and unsettling atmosphere. Looks like a rather odd one but it has me curious to see more from it.

Check out the initial teaser below:

OK, I'll go first:
If you want horror and puzzles in an OS setting, just install Windows. You'll be so scared you're never going to touch a computer again.

I'll see myself out now, thank you

i think its a good idea to make an game like this might help linux, imagine an compiz simulator, people might want to have an UI like this in real life, then when they realize its possible they will be enticed, and since linux nowadays can run most of their games...
