You’re dead. Welcome to XING from indie developer White Lotus Interactive

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

The game grants players the ability to manipulate their environment in a wide variety of ways, such as summoning rain, generating snowstorms and changing the time of day to help solve puzzles.

The story of XING is told through gameplay and poetry. The game has no dialog or subtitles, just elegant poetry and cryptic messages etched into stone monuments.

Players must explore to find the answers they seek. They’ll encounter sumptuous shrines, awesome abilities, sorrowful souls and puzzles within puzzles while traversing mountains, deserts, forests, volcanoes and more.

Standard first-person controls and a minimalist UI make XING accessible and engaging. The game will be Oculus Rift-enabled.

Death is but another journey…

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
