John Torkington is part of a trio currently working on XING: The Land Beyond, a new adventure videogame coming to PC and featuring native Oculus Rift support. After a hugely successful Kickstarter campaign the small yet energetic team are working hard to ensure that XING: The Land Beyond lives up to the expectation; but where did the idea come from in the first place?
The hallmarks of classic adventures such Myst, The Legend of Zelda and Metroid Prime can easily be seen in XING: The Land Beyond, and Torkington doesn’t shy away from this fact in an interview with VRFocus. However, Torkington is also keen to acknowledge that developing for a virtual reality (VR) experience can often change the playing field, noting that a large amount of time is spent working out what will and what won’t work. The full interview with Torkington can be seen below and VRFocus will keep you updated with all the latest details on XING: The Land Beyond.
