Spirits will also help you in your quest to solve puzzles, in the hopes that you will set them free when you pass through the final gate into oblivion...

Oculus Rift

"XING it a beautiful MYST-like game, it  has an interesting mix of puzzles and spiritualism. However what really jumps out is how beautiful the game looks...Simply Amazing"



"I've had a chance to tool around with a pre-alpha build of the game, and even in that early state I came away impressed"


"Some game makers spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on gigantic displays to draw the attention of E3 visitors. Others lurk in quiet corners, winning hearts one at a time."


"The atmospheric music and absolutely gorgeous graphics made my mouth drop"


"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."

"We loved the emphasis on puzzle-based gaming and the beautiful environments that communicated a mood and story without ever saying a word."


"The world of XING exists to be explored, enjoyed, and solved...an impressive work worth keeping an eye on"
