'Crossroads Inn' (ALL) The Pit DLC Planned For Later This Month

by Rainier on April 16, 2020 @ 10:35 a.m. PDT

Crossroads Inn is a real-time tavern management simulator, where you build your very own tavern, hire and oversee staff, manage your supply chain and specialize your services, research new recipes and encounter a host of unconventional characters.

Crossroads Inn is a real-time management sim with role-playing games elements.

The game consists of two unique modes offering totally different experiences. In Sandbox mode gamers will focus solely on managing their business and economy – to build their very own tavern, hire and oversee staff, manage the supply chains and create new dish recipes. In Campaign mode, micromanagement is just a prelude to a rich story as the kingdom is in turmoil and a shift of power is expected. Your Inn will soon attract the attention of important political and military figures, who are desperately trying to hold on to the reins of power.

Gamers will become part of a large-scale drama full of political intrigues, vivid characters, treacherous NPC’s and dangerous quests inspired by RPG games – You will even have a damsel in distress to save!


The Pit is an extensive expansion for Crossroads Inn, which allows you to run illegal businesses, and gives you a new options of expanding your tavern. From now your granary, warehouse, guest rooms, and even the entire inn may be built underground! And what is underground is not always visible to the city authorities and guards...

You've become a respected innkeeper, and you've earned this title. Guests are satisfied and the river of cash is flowing straight into your register. The dreams of running your own inn have become reality, days are made of routine activities, you order deliveries, discipline drunks and drill lazy employees. Everything is beautiful - but is it all there is? Is this what the rest of your life is bound to be? Once you wanted to be a hero, a warrior, an adventurer! The inn is a good business, but there must be more to life!

You come up with an idea – a bold one, and not entirely legal. What if you add a pinch of spice to this business? Some real emotions. Not giving it too much thought, you start digging a small dungeon underneath the tavern. It will not be an ordinary cellar. You have your finger on the pulse of the entertainment business in Delcrys, and you know that there's a new thing that excites everyone, from the common folk to the aristocracy: illegal fighting, an underground circle of brave people, who are not afraid of any risk, and care not for unsightly scars and gaps in teeth. But with the underground tournaments come all kinds of suspicious types, and a circulation of illegal goods, the ones that should be kept away from the wary looks of the authorities. Drugs, gambling, and mixed martial arts – this will be the inn!

‘We have promised our community constant improvement of the original game, but also a solid support for Crossroads Inn when it comes to unique additional content. We want to keep our promise. ” – said Robert Oglodzinski, Head of Studio – “The Pit was our dream from the beginning of development. We wanted to let players think outside the box and explore the gray area and black market options in Delcrys. If you blend it with a small inspiration taken from Fight Club movie, you will get our vision of illegal fantasy!’
