Tavern building and management Crossroads Inn is out now and it sounds like a mess

Posted by , | Views: 10,379

Kraken Unleashed and Klabater just recently released Crossroads Inn, a mix of a real-time management sim with RPG elements according to their official description. Note: Key provided by GOG.

The Linux release came after a really short delay but it's good to see it, especially since this was funded on Kickstarter. However, it seems they're suffering from a lot of bugs, some of which are quite game-breaking. Considering this is not Early Access, the state it's in is pretty poor. Not that I can personally test it, since the Linux release is currently M.I.A from GOG.

Going by what most people are saying you're going to want to grab a drink, find a bench and wait a while for it to taste better. PC Gamer, for example, ended their article by saying "As good as the concept is, the execution is disappointingly unpolished, unintuitive and at times just broken."—ouch. Considering they already have a £15.49 Season Pass up, with multiple planned DLCs that's quite laughable really.

I had high hopes for this one, so sad. Whenever the developer decides to grace GOG with a Linux build, I will be taking a look once it's had a few more patches.

Find it for Linux on Steam and eventually GOG.

kaimanAlso, please note that I do very much like GOG, for their stance on DRM, and their effort of preserving classic games. But that doesn't mean I won't criticize them in areas where they could do better.
I collided two trains of thought in that post. Above --- was my reply to your comment; below --- were my general thoughts on the relationship between GOG and Linux gamers, and my wishing it could be better (which, for a start, requires better communication on the part of both parties). Apologies for not making the separation clearer.

I do agree with you, GOG is deserving of criticism where warranted, but some of this is outside of GOG's control.

Does anyone have any updated info on the Linux build for GOG.com?[1][2]

While the product page has changed, the technical issues section of the support center still shows a Tux icon in the search result and has a Linux button on the support page.
