Sweet merciful Something, this is the best visual novel I've ever read. Every character is nuanced and believable. The setting is detailed, and like most good sci-fi, highly applicable to the current state of the world. Thanks for a brilliant and painful story.


Super confusing.

The story is super entertaining but it has some parts that are quite..WTF. At first it can be a little bit boring with a lot of info because it has a lot of details (some i didn't event understand).
This could be adaptted to a tv series or a movie

SPOILERs ahead:





One of the main male protagonist is super abusive, the other one is nice but suddenly he calls you an sc0rt. If you try to romance the girl you could get her killed. So... read this stoy at you own risk.

The three things that i thought what a nice touch was some queer couples ,that the main character is bi and that all the characters have a lot of details in their desings.
Thanks anyway for your work!

This game is not a dating sim. All of the characters including the mc can die regardless of your romances. Character deaths only occur via story choices and explained exactly why it happens if you pay attention to the story.

All of the characters in the game have difficult aspects, including the mc.

Thanks for playing!


I agree that too much information came in too fast at the start, it was a bit of lore overload even for someone who loves learning about new fantasy worlds.  

That is literally my only critique of this game <3

almost all of the cyberpunk and almost all of not romance focused games incorporate a complex world building and the concept of introduction of a specific technical terms, planet names, dimensions and etc. is common (at least of what I have seen and played on itch and steam). It is a quite some amount of info to go through at the beginning, but these details are what makes story more alive, readers more invested. soo...I cannot agree with you on that part

Maybe try to get into the mood for the story (it is not a dating sim where things happening around MC and love interest and focused on their relationships 70% of the time), and try to play with a game, make this choice and that, and just to experiment =)


As someone who has followed rinmaru's games since her early flash work with dress up games and Ascension (<3) I remember seeing this game in development and  I was excited to see this was in the ukraine bundle!  I binged it in a day and have no regrets.

Thanks for your work. Just a quick note:
On Linux it will not start as the executables are not marked as so :)

You can chmod +x CardinalCross.sh and the executable in lib/your architecture, in my case chmod +x lib/linux-x86_64/CardinalCross to solve it

Now... ready to plaaaay :)

I bought this game some time ago but only had a chance to play it recently. This is cyberpunk VN with a bit of romance in it (30%).

Even tho I bought this game cause I played Oathbreaker (absolutely loved it btw) and decided to check other works from LarkyLabs. 

I did not regret it a bit.

The world is full, amazing, engaging. 

I love how all MCs are independent, confident, and quick-witted females. The game allowed me to travel to a different universe, flirt, be angry, happy, and decide my future with comrades, enemies, and family. 

I can say this is the game I will replay again, and I will enjoy it almost the same way when I played it the first time. 

Thank you! 

um the game won't start at all

Hi demongodloki,

Please try downloading the itch.io app and launch the game through it.
let me know if it works!

You need to make CardinalCross.sh and lib/yourarch/CardinalCross executable


i wish i had money to buy this :(


I generally enjoy this but I find myself irritated with the MC more often than not. She's very self-righteous. *sigh*


i have beaten it on steam when i got it during one of the sales. I plan to play again for the itch version. I love Egon he is my favourite. Can't wait to play again.

Thank you for playing!!! Hope you enjoy the replay!!! ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–

Just out of curiosity, how many romance-able characters are there in this game? 2 guys and 1 girl or..?


2 guys 1 girl, yes. :)


This is really awesome own it on steam!

Thank you so much for playing! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š


Does this version contain anything different from the original?


No, this is exactly the same as the Steam version. ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ™‚


Gotcha. I own the Steam one already. Alas, I was half hoping for extra Soren goodies or NSFW Soren. Yes, I know I am a terrible bad person. ;) Can't fault a girl for hoping! :)


Haha, not at all! I'm working on a nsfw Soren x Lana separate mini game, but it's a gift for my Patreon. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’–

Hello, I have a question, is the game finished or is it a chapter-like game where the story isn't fully finish yet and only the chapter 1 is available ?

Anyway the game looks amazing !


Hi Ayael,
This is a finished game which was released back in 2018. ๐Ÿ™‚

Oh okay! It appears as a new release to me, so I was confused, I will buy it then ! <3

(Too impatient to play non finished story XD)

The CGs look very very pretty and the story sounds so cool (I like badass main character).

Thanks for answering me !

It was previously only released on Steam, and I just added it on Itch.io. ๐Ÿ’–
