Patch Notes Build 3662

Update #7: This game is large and I am but one man

Update day? For the Land Beyond? But it's not even Wednesday... its like 11:15.

Hyaku Lake:
  • Saving near the second sliding pillars puzzle no longer resets the player back to the beginning of the level. (There was a poorly placed respawning node near the puzzle - on reloading, the game would try to place the player back at that location and fail due to it’s poor placement, thus falling back to placing the player at the beginning of the level.)
  • Fixed a segment near the intro where the player could get stuck between some barrels.
  • Fixed the respawning mechanic in a hard to reach area of the intro canyon.
  • Rafts should now stick to the water surface during rain rather than hovering above it.

  • Added some extra collision at the final puzzle to prevent players from getting stuck after falling off a ledge.

Merry Spooky and Patchnotes 3653

Update #6: Spoooooooky!

Happy Halloween everyone! To celebrate this awesome and culturally ambiguous tradition, I’ve added some halloween flair to Zeneth to go along with some of the more mundane bug-fixes.

To any newcomers - welcome! XING is a pretty cool game at a pretty cool price, especially with our little holiday discount. If all the super spooky games are getting you a little tense, why not relax with a friendly, tranquil game about death. See? It’s still thematic!

See ya in the Land Beyond!

  • Added some holiday spice to Zeneth : D
  • The invert-Y setting now remembers its state between levels (no longer resets to false after every level)
  • Added a few missing jump assist nodes.

  • Fixed a quicksave bug where if a pillar was submerged in water and frozen, its position would be reset on load, breaking the final puzzle.

“… honestly, it is one of the best looking VR games I have played to date.”
76/100 – COG Connected

“It’s an adventure videogame that taxes the player’s minds more than their trigger finger, placing them in a lost world setting filled with traps, puzzles and hidden treasure. Furthermore, the whole thing is absolutely gorgeous, as if you needed any more reason to invest your interest.”
VR Focus

“Breathtakingly beautiful and fiendishly logical, XING: The Land Beyond will spark your ingenuity and kindle a keen delight as you trek its entrancing pathways.”
4.5/5 – Adventure Gamers

About This Game

You died. Welcome to XING.

Spirit Journey

What if you had the power to go up to a gravestone, read the epitaph, and transport yourself into the lives of the departed?
Your body may be gone, but your life has just begun. In death, you will find yourself on a journey across a series of mysterious lands, an afterlife filled with the thoughts and personalities of those long lost. Follow these forgotten stories, collect artifacts, solve puzzles, and discover secrets as you make your own adventure through the mysteries of The Land Beyond.

Is death without legacy something to be feared?

What happens when we do not realize what is most important to us?

Do we choose our own destiny, or is it chosen for us?

A Puzzling Place

XING: The Land Beyond is a fantastical, non-combative, spiritual journey through the afterlife. Along the way you are challenged to solve a myriad of puzzles which require logic, creativity, and the mastery of environmental control. In this peaceful afterlife, puzzles can be solved at your own pace. Through your journey you will learn to harness the power of the sun, the rains, the snow, and more.

XING: The Land Beyond has been developed with accessibility in mind, and conforms to color-blindness, deafness, and has no time-constrains in its puzzle design.

Virtual Reality

XING: The Land Beyond has full VR support for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift, with options to use either SDK, as well as a range of controller options, including tracked motion controllers and traditional gamepads.

Great care has been taken to ensure XING is an exciting and comfortable experience for all lovers of virtual worlds. We offer two distinct movement options for players:

  • An innovative new motion controller-based free-movement system, with a balance of comfort and usability. We call this "reins", because it is similar to directing a horse when you ride.
  • A more direct analog stick based movement system compatible with both motion controllers and gamepads - offering a more traditional experience with snap turning and smooth rotation options.
