Developer White Lotus has been working on puzzle adventure title XING: The Land Beyond for a very long time. Lead developer John Torkington notes in a blog post that 19.7% of his life has been spent working on the title. It seems the end is near, though, as the developer recently announced the title would be released on 18th September, 2017.
As stated on the XING: The Land Beyond developer blog, work continues on the title, with the main focus for the team at the moment being elimination of bugs, finishing and mastering of the soundtrack, and the final polishing for various events. The team have also been looking to producing a new trailer ready for the launch announcement, which you can find HERE.
XING: The Land Beyond is a puzzle-adventure title that takes players into a mysterious ‘afterlife’ where there are secrets waiting to be uncovered, hidden messages that might reveal the truth about why you are there, and even who you are. The gameplay revolves around environment-based puzzles that require various powers and abilities that can be unlocked as you progress.
The title is planned to be available for HTC Vive, with two different options for locomotion, free movement involving holding down the touchpad, and teleportation movement, to offer comfort to those prone to simulation sickness.
The developers also offered some more close-up looks at what work has been done on the title with the release of some new GIFs, which you can see below.
