Xing: The Land Beyond (VR)
Developer: White Lotus Interactive
Its stories are touching and poignant and its puzzles are well designed while not being overly difficult. The games control scheme is great, never cumbersome and it’s locations beautifully realized. I am not a fan of overly emotional games or puzzle games but this title really engulfed me, it’s a pleasure to play and everyone who has a PSVR headset should play it. I cannot find anything bad to say about it really, and that is a truly rare occurrence.
Visually stunning, creative puzzles, great audio, and a brilliant narrative – XING: The Land Beyond has it all! This game is the perfect embodiment of ‘best of both worlds’, you have a fully immersive and great looking VR game coupled with an even better looking and easy to control Flat version in one package. Sure, some of the puzzles may seem like things we’ve seen many times before when you look from the outside, but once you take control and encounter them yourself, things aren’t always as they seem. The whole game is held together with a very emotional and dark narrative about pain and acceptance as each character approaches the end of their lives.
