Quote:
XING: The Land Beyond is a contemplative journey through the afterlife, incorporating puzzle design akin to the Zelda series, with emphasis on environment like Dear Esther and Myst. Players must keenly observe their surroundings and use their wits to progress through the serene world.

XING: The Land Beyond grants players the ability to manipulate their environment in a wide variety of ways. Players can summon rain, generate snowstorms and change the time of day to help them solve puzzles. These abilities not only create an immersive gameplay experience, but will also allow players to create their own solutions for puzzles. For example, the act of crossing a simple river can be suddenly transformed by freezing winds or torrential rain, making simple what once was impossible!

The story of XING is told through gameplay and poetry. There is no dialog, no subtitles, only elegant poetry and cryptic messages etched into stone monuments. The player must explore to find the answers they seek. Players will encounter sumptuous shrines, awesome abilities, sorrowful souls and puzzles within puzzles.

Players will be able to traverse mountains, deserts, forests, volcanoes and more in their journey through the land of XING. Standard first-person controls and a minimalist UI make the game accessible, while still engaging for seasoned gamers. Death is but another journey…

XING: The Land Beyond features:
• Original Score
• Weather Control
• 3-D Environmental Puzzles
• Integrated Day-Night Cycle
• Dazzling 3-D Environments
• Intuitive First-Person Controls
• Pervasive and Penetrating Poetry
• Utilizing the power of the Unreal Engine 3

We are excited to announce the beginning of our Kickstarter campaign.
• Expected Release Date: October 2013
• Price: $15
• Platform: PC
• Distribution: Steam Greenlight



You can check out the official website here.

Happy Gaming!

Wow! This looks delicious!

White Lotus Interactive, looks like a fun crew! These kids are really talented. It is nice to see a new generation get into developing games, new ideas and a fresh vision!

They got my vote! bravo

I was sucked in by the fabulous look of the game and then put off by the real 3D, because I thought that I'd have to use the WASD, space bar, etc. to maneuver. However, in the FAQ for their Kickcstarter project they state --
Quote:
XING is specifically designed to take advantage of a wide variety of control options, including mouse and keyboard, as well as gamepads. Players will be able to configure the controls of the game individually to their liking. We know that accessibility is hugely important, and we are trying our best to make a game that can be enjoyed by as many people as possible.

There is now a DEMO for this game.

Read the text on the left to see that you may have to download more than once to get it working.

Looks good.

Does the demo require Steam? Will the full game require Steam?

Uncle Reg. It's a very regular DEMO download from the link and I did not past through Steam.

I do not know about the full game.

I missed the Kickstarter campaign for this game. The game looks REALLY good to me and it's a First Person game, which is hard to find. I'll be looking forward to it's completion!


The answer is....chocolate! Who cares what the question is.....

Thanks so much, Ana for this info. I just downloaded this demo, and I'm anxious to play it. I have always been a HUGE fan of all the MYST games, so I know I will enjoy THIS one.
Sandy

WOW! What gorgeous graphics and sound. It's "MYST" all over again. BTW, I had NO trouble launching the game. I found the way to quit the game was to hit the TAB key, and enter "QUIT" (without the quote marks). HAPPY GAMING!

Great feel to the game so far. I'm glad I backed it. BTW, you can program your mouse button to 'W' so you can move forward with the mouse. ESC to exit.
