The game is about in a world the place Fantasy races exist, however in separate dimensions. Through the growth of Goblin know-how, these dimensions have been capable of be bridged, and the World’s Crossing Academies have been created.
We’ve all dreamed of residing on one other world sooner or later. In this world, it’s doable. Those who’re all in favour of residing amongst one other species can go by way of education on the World’s Crossing Academy to be taught that tradition. Schooling begins on the Academy department in your homeworld. Then you may transfer to the Nexus Academy between worlds. Finally, you may attend ending school on the world you selected. Sounds fairly epic, proper?
A Little Something For Everyone
For World’s Crossing, we needed a really various forged of characters. In reality, many completely different physique and character kinds exist, and the inclusion of Fantasy races permits us to take that to the acute. People have completely different tastes, and we needed to cowl as lots of these as we might. Perhaps you are intrigued by the hulking, muscle-bound Goliath? Or the tiny, mischievous Pixie? Maybe the elusive Fire Genasi catches your consideration? Perhaps you fancy a fellow martial artist who might train you a factor or two about combating? Or perhaps you are all in favour of Fantasy races that are not historically thought of enticing, comparable to Goblins?
We needed an enormous array of choices and aesthetics, however we additionally needed every of those characters to be greater than hole shells which are good to have a look at. Each of those characters can have a deep, lovingly crafted story of their very own. We’re hoping that every route you select can have hours price of content you may be fascinated with even while you’re not enjoying the game.
The Element of Danger
No story is full and not using a supply of battle. In World’s Crossing Academy, our foremost character is suffering from a stalker. Cecilia needs you all to herself, and for those who’re not cautious with how typically you work together with the opposite women, you possibly can be placing them or your self in severe hazard. Though damaged, Cecilia is crafty and clever, and is greater than able to placing different women within the Infirmary. Time within the Infirmary means time you possibly can’t work together with them or full their quests, so watch out.
Often, your selections can result in undesirable issues occurring. We felt this was a life like strategy to take, and it provided the game some rigidity. However, we additionally felt that together with mechanics that result in a Game Over would go away a bitter style in gamers’ mouths, so we explored and settled on the concept that each occasion within the game serves to unlock one thing, or results in one thing else. Who is aware of? Spending time within the Infirmary your self could help you meet a personality you in any other case would not…

Hello once more and thanks to your endurance! One of the most important items of suggestions I’ve been getting is:
OMG DOES THIS DEV KNOW THAT COMPRESSION EXISTS.
And the reply to that was… no. No, I didn’t lol I’m BRAND fuggin new to game growth. But ask, and also you shall obtain! Nearly each .png file (previously 2 to 4mb apiece) has been transformed to .webp after which renamed into .png so I do not have to alter the code. This shaved practically 3gb off of the closing file measurement.
Later on, I’ll see about probably compressing the audio because the game grows. For now, this ought to be good.
I’m nonetheless dumbfounded by the quantity of consideration this game is getting. Thank you all. You’re inspiring me to take this, which was simply type of slightly tech demo/ Proof of Concept mission significantly.
Ch 1-4 Released
World’s Crossing is, at its core, an adult game. So in fact, we needed to emphasise the standard of our H-scenes by utilizing a combination of high-resolution stills and video loops. The characters are created with one of the best textures available. We needed pores and skin that seems like pores and skin. Eyes that basically really feel like they’re wanting into yours. The animations are synced and modified in a means that makes the actions appear extra pure.
The story writing is dealt with by me, VictorSeven. I’m a printed Fantasy writer underneath the pen identify Miles Tigard and writer of The Riftkey Chronicles Fantasy collection with 20 years of Fantasy writing expertise. Most adult video games today focus nearly completely on the adult content and, whereas it is smart to accomplish that given the style of game it’s, we discover that almost all adult video games actually skimp on story high quality. Many of those video games supply filler scenes that solely function low cost excuses to get to the following H-scene. We felt that having a printed Fantasy writer writing the story would give it an edge over the remaining of the adult video games on the market, and supply a deeply satisfying expertise on each a bodily and emotional degree. We need World’s Crossing Academy to be MORE than simply an inexpensive fap fest. We need you, the participant, to be emotionally linked to our characters and invested of their tales. Higher high quality means much less frequent updates, as I do have a collection of my very own that I’m continually engaged on, however you possibly can count on the depth and high quality of the story to be far past what you are used to in an adult Visual Novel. And who is aware of? With the suitable funding, I’ll have the opportunity to spend extra time on World’s Crossing!
The Beginning of a Journey
Obviously, we have now some very lofty targets for World’s Crossing Academy. There are 4 foremost story arcs deliberate for the foremost character: the Janitor arc, the Security arc, the Counselor arc, and the Ambassador arc. Currently, we have now no plans to “finish” the game. That means we would like to preserve including an increasing number of content, characters, scenes, and areas for so long as we have now help. So we at Team EmberWings are eternally grateful for anybody who begins out on this journey with us.
