Seriously good VR/Non-VR puzzle game

2 posts in this topic

As the title states, this is a great puzzle game which you shouldn't overlook. I've done a full review here: http://www.gamepitt.co.uk/xing-the-land-beyond-psvr-ps4-review/

It's been out on the PC for a while but the PS4/PSVR version is out today in America and tomorrow in EU. About 10 hours of puzzles depending on your skill level with no penalties or time limits - just lots of time manipulation, rain creation. wind blowing, moving blocks, throwing things, finding items etc...

It's also a fairly easy platinum - I completed it in two sittings, as I couldn't stop playing it. Nothing is missable as such, as you can go back into any level - but you do have to re-complete it in order to have it count. The story is great as well - four main stories which are told to you via poems left behind by the deceased. You're basically following their footsteps as you find their final resting place and uncover what happened to them in their final moments alive. 


Like I said - really good game.

Curious if the places are based somewhat on real locations? I've seen a lot of it takes place on Easter Island/Rapa Nui...are there any direct references to that or do they have fantasy names? (Mostly curious because I've been to Easter Island and have always wanted to play a VR game based there). Sounds like a good buy either way...PS+ discount this first week helps.

Good question. I think is all fictional tbh. The first level is based on an island, so it has the Easter Island heads, Palm Trees, clear waters and sandy beaches. The other levels take you through the jungle, A desert and a frozen land. It’s all a play on the different elemental ‘powers’ you get which you use to solve puzzles with. 

 

Then, once you find enough tunes, there was about 8-10 mini-stories you unlock. Most are just walking from A to B as you read the poems, but some have a few puzzles which take a while to solve.

 

its a really good game. I love the poetry in it as the entire story is told through poems.
