Thanks you for the great news Sheriff, its been a long wait. You can still Pre-Order the game from their Web page as a Humble-Bundle for $15usd which includes a DRM Free Windows Download plus a Steam Key. I just did. http://www.xingthegame.com/pre-order.html

Thanks for the update on the release date. I have been along with a lot of others been waiting since the kickstarter days so another three days is okay. I have pre-ordered for the PC but have been thinking of getting another for the VR experience on the PS4 as well, once I get the funds for the VR unit anyway lol.

Some of the Kickstarter games I've pledged for are still a VERY long way from reaching anywhere near release - so I'm quite happy to hear about a wait that's only being extended by a further three days !! laugh

Mad, but that was not nearly the first of the extension!

The game used to be planned for the release in October 2013, then in June 2014, then in November 2014, then in Spring 2016, then in Fall 2016, and then finally on September 18, 2017.

We can only hope that was the last change of the date smile

Yes, I know there has been a long wait. But I'm hoping this three day notice will be IT !! yes

And after all, this is not the only funded project that has gone on and on and on and not yet been released crazy

Re: Xing: The Land Beyond Release Date - Updated - 09/19/17 10:31 AM

Agreed Mad! And I can name quite a few I supported that I know will never be completed! I don't mind if I know they are still working on it, but the ones that feel it was ok to just take the money and not work on it at all disgust me.

Re: Xing: The Land Beyond Release Date - Updated - 09/19/17 04:54 PM

Yes. So dishonest shame

And also there are the ones who describe the game they intend to make and have a successful fundraising to make it.
But two/three years later and with nothing anywhere near ready for release, they announce that they have decided to take the game down a different path !! eek

For those interested, I have downloaded the game, both the DRM Free from Humble Bundle and have redeemed my Steam Key from...well...Steam. Haven't started play yet but wanted to let everyone know.

Does this game require keyboard control?

Re: Xing: The Land Beyond Release Date - Updated - 09/22/17 02:41 AM

Just got my email from "Humble" so will be downloading and burning to disk very shortly dance dance dance

[If I remember correctly, Uncle Reg, the controls are a keyboard/mouse combination.]

Re: Xing: The Land Beyond Release Date - Updated - 09/22/17 08:23 AM

All you need to do is program your mouse (if you have a programmable one) for any other button than the right or left clickers to the 'W' key and you are all set. You will use this button to move forward and use your mouse to steer. Like many other games in the last few years there are some commands you have to use your Keyboard for like running or zooming but its the closest you can get to a mouse only game. One other note: The game saves upon exit which is a good thing compared to other games now a days that only save at certain spots. So far the game tells me I am 20% in and I don't find it to terribly difficult.

Greyfuss is spot on here. Everyone one who dislikes keyboard-only control (well, most of us that is) should consider buying a programmable mouse.
